1985 Honda Hero Gizmo

Re: Honda GIZMO engine rebuild

That is not a Honda, just a Hero. It's an Indian manufacturer. It was a joint venture between Honda and Hero but it's not a Honda Gizmo. (edited)

Hero!

It's a cool bike, pretty uncommon. It came out of HandyBikes in Columbus, just down the road from me. Most Hero moped used clones of bigger manufacturer motors but I don't know what the Gizmo motor is a clone of. The kickstarter looks pretty unusual. Might be a Peugeot clone, but what parts do you need? (edited)

Re: Honda GIZMO engine rebuild

Head, base, exhaust gaskets. A set of points, maybe a stator, and a voltage regulator and coil.

Re: Honda GIZMO engine rebuild

It has POINTS,not electronic ignition? What year is it. The Gizmo had a variator,I believe.

Re: Honda GIZMO engine rebuild

Add a full face helmet to the list of parts, if you are attached to the lower part of your face, because one day you might not be.

Re: Honda GIZMO engine rebuild

1985, it has a v-belt centrifugal clutch. Can't get parts, oh well...

The Head and base gaskets can be hand cut .The exhaust I'm not sure which type you need .

Points you'll likely have to match .

Electrical is pretty common , matching shouldn't be much of a problem .

They probably used what ever parts were on the table at the time .

That means parts are available , just that they might not be specifically listed for your exact bike .

Re: Honda GIZMO engine rebuild

That centrifugal clutch is a variator. Makes all the difference.

🇮🇹💦 Of the Loin /

Hero doesn't super make their own designs

so this was likely copied off a commodity vehicle so you can probably find it

Re: Honda GIZMO engine rebuild

I have a later model Hero and my engine is a clone of a Peugeot 102. I have gotten a few things from DOS cycles.
