Re: Rare Peds

my Toptank Yankee Peddler....shaw's MBK BMX

Re: Rare Peds

How bout Dans top tank Carabella?

Re: Rare Peds

I dare you to find another 1980 Testi Amico.

All I can find on the web is that Testi made a bike called the Amico, no pic or documentation of it all.

I know I'll never sell mine; I can ride it a Moped or Scooter rallies and neither group can hate on it.

Re: Rare Peds

Doesn't that have the V1 engine on it?

Re: Rare Peds

I don't know if it counts, and i think it's complete bullshit. but i was googling one night for "diesel mopeds". some dudes myspace page came up, so i sent him a message. he replied, admittedly drunk and said that it was in fact an original honda diesel moped.

said he'd give me more details in the morning, and i never heard back nor followed up. sounded like a load of shit to me, but i'd guess if it's real, it should probably make the list.

does anyone have a concept? or prototype? from any maker? i'd guess that's more likely in europe, but it'd be interesting to find out.

Re: Rare Peds

too many to list

Re: Rare Peds

google images, shows a 72 testi amico prototype (ha testi), it's for sale to, in the neterlands, 500 euros

Re: Rare Peds

mods- yup V1

berg - I'm calling bs, you must have a different google cause I didn't find anything remotely close to this.

Please provide a link if you can find them so easy...

Re: Rare Peds

Wow nice work. It's a little different but the same model/idea.

_remember dude, search engines have killer backends if you know how to manipulate the syntax_ That assumes I know what a syntax is and how to manipulate it, I don't.

Thanks for the links.

Re: Rare Peds

Nick Howe of Nick's Mopeds in Coldwater Ohio has a couple "one of a kinds", including a miniature Batavus.

Re: Rare Peds

Re: Rare Peds

id say puch monza/MS50 or a magnum LTD.

it depends on area too.

Re: Rare Peds

Re: Rare Peds

jawa 230... i have one .. never have seen another...

Re: Rare Peds

Kamasura is pretty rare, Only 1000 were imported They seem to be concentrated in Michigan and Ohio.

that Jawa Ultra Sport is probably pretty rare...

I'm still not convinced it really even existed, and wasn't some sort of Soviet propaganda designed to instill fear and confusion in the enemy.

Re: Rare Peds

ive seen an ultra sport .. with my own eyes

Re: Rare Peds

what about the honda motocompo

were they ever even imported to usa

Re: Rare Peds

you mean the Hudson diesel i have only seen one pic of it once and never seen it again

im guessing it was from england

another one was lohmann i know i spelled that wrong but it was an 18cc diesel bike engine

Re: Rare Peds

the 18cc diesel was in the 40's though wasn't it, and every record i can fnd says they were complete junk.

i was pretty sure it was honda, but really i don't know. i'll see if i can dig the thing up again.

Re: Rare Peds

yeah a guy on motoredbikes.com has one of them and says its useless no balls at all and a bitch to start

i would believe honda would make a diesel moped or scooter i have not seen one but i wouldnt doubt it
