Got this from italy today.

1960s Minarelli P1, 49cc, single speed, manual clutch.

Top end is exactly like the V1. Same head, cylinder, ports, stroke, etc

So I can put a kit in it with no modification and bolt it to something and have a real clutch.

The black knob on the top twists and locks it into neutral for easy pedaling.

Needs external pedals to start it, or bump start.

Super simple design, half the weight and 2/3 the size of a V1.

Probably could convert a V1 by swapping the clutch shaft. Not that I'd want to, but It has the same clutch bell and clutch, but the lever activates a spring loaded shaft by lifting up the four pronged spacer thing to disengage it from the gear.

That means no centrifugal clutch slip, and could do wheelies and burnouts with a kit on it.

Pretty neat piece of Minarelli history.
