New around here....

Hey everyone, i just picked up a 77 Cimatti City Bike with the Minarelli V1 engine... i like it a lot so far, just a lot of cruise around on

anyways, i seem to be spewing motor oil from the cap on the top of the engine and im not sure why.. any thoughts of why or how i can fix it.

also any places i can pick some parts up at? new muffler, shocks and maybe engine stuff?

thanks in advanced, and i sincerely apologize for my ignorance in the subject

Re: New around here....

Well many cylinder kits are available. Some even up to 90cc. Check 1977mopeds and I believe there is an exhaust on ebay at this time if you search Minarelli along with a replacement stock cylinder. Hanybikes and mopedshop are also good places for V1 stuff. Hope I could help. Nolan.

If it is spewing oil out of the filler/breather I would say that it is overfull. Drain it out and put in 600cc of 20w or 30w non-detergent oil.

Re: New around here....

i dont know if it is the filler/breather, it is a cap on the top of the engine labeled "Motor Oil"... so im assuming is just the cap... but ya maybe it is just over full. thanks!
