Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

Im exited. I'm going to need a lotta help from you guys to get it to where it needs to be though. Tell me what you think.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

It's doable

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

eyyo, sweet!

I'm working on my ssxl project right now too!

I think there's a little more rust on yours than mine, though. If you want to sell that busted up seat, let me know.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

i hope you didn't pay too much

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

thats pretty rough. you'll defiantly learn a lot with this project. i hope your able to get it running though, it could be an awesome ped with a lot of work.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

Wow, Frame looks good.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

i'd bet that is one from the dinkins auction. i got three the same color but much better condition from sumpter sc. the most i paid for one was $!6!

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

Pat,

Do you remember that dark red SS XL @ Dinkins? I wish I knew who got that one.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

looking good maynard. U will learn alot fixing this, definitely do-able, just stick with it. good luck!

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

sweet, that's going to be a fun project.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

way to start a project off with bars

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

lol thanks

mine runs.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

I paid $35 bucks for it. I got an extra motor with it. I have no clue wether thier good or not. I'm going to get 2 mor frames today, for free. This didn't come from an auction. this was a barnyard find. The way I found it made me feel better about the project. I don't know why, lol. The cliche barnyard find.

I'm getting ragged on hard right now by friends but when I'm done they'll all wan't to ride it...

What are the performance options?

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

Good job man, take what you can get. You'll be pro in a few months.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

tons of performance options, there's a 70cc polini kit for it on 1977 I think.

Also, puch performance exhausts will fit, you might need to make some adjustments, but they'll fit eventually.

I'm totally serious about that seat. Right now I'm ridin' bareback or bicycle seat. Or maybe I'll duct tape a pillow to that puppy.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

1977? Whats that? is that a website? Do they not have exausts for the ssxl?

can you swap any motors on to it?

There aren't any garelli-specific exhausts that I know of. Maybe I just haven't found them yet. But as I was saying, if you can find a Puch performance exhaust, you can make it fit to a garelli.

When you're doing upgrades (or just plain-old repairs) remember that the SSXL is a horizontal engine, also known as an NOI engine as opposed to a VIP engine which is vertical.

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

yeah i am at the end of a project that started like that except the random the pieces missing was electrical and a little hole in the piston. best of luck just remember there's a light at the end of the tunnel; and the tunnel improves your cussing :P

Re: Got a Garelli ssxl today!!

Keep the body all crusty and rusty but polish up the motor and you'll have a sick bike.
