What hek kind of moped is this?

I recently bought this little rust bucket out of the junkyard of a motorcycle shop in south carolina for $30. I got it to kick over and run when i dumped some fuel into the carb intake, so so far it was worth the purchase.

My question is, who can tell me what it is. It says ESCOT on the side of the fuel cell, but that's it, no other identifying features except for the headbadge thing that says april 1984 manufactured by daelim motors in korea.

a few things i do know. it came with a makuni carb, missing the float pin and bowl. It's 2 cycle with an oil tank under the seat pan, it's a 2 speed automatic, and the drum brake hubs say made in france.

any ideas or help would be awesome.

They put Dialem motors on a lot of peds in the late 80's. Could be a trac clone?

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

Its a Trac, clipper I think.

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

the whole seat rack and tank set up looks like they copied a honda express

and that is a funny looking daelim engine

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

Ya that is an old honda express or a clone of it. everything i see looks to be interchangeable. So thats lucky all the parts are out there and bikebandit.com should have them as well.

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

NO no no. The only thing express-like about it is the tank and tube frame. Everything else is quite different. CEV-type headlight, which the hondas dont have. Actual exhaust pipe, not honda. Honda express' do not have a triple tree. Kick start on the right, so the engine is different. Has an actual swingarm, so it's external chain drive on the LH side, while the express has an enclosed chain drive that acts as the swingarm. Other than the tube frame theres nothing express about it.

Dont know what you got there, but it looks neat.

What kind of moped is it? A $30 one!

Awesome. Get it up and running, it's pretty unique.

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

I stand corrected. didnt even notice how the frame and fork mated and i figured the pipe was a homemade thing. Hey if it runs and is complete its all good. Just see if you can find out what carb it has.

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

Dude thats way more of a citybike ( cimatti ) clone then and express.

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

it doesnt look anything like a camatti at all

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

BUMP... for the fact that everybody has an opinion and i want to here more.

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

Dude that looks like a Trac Clipper alright. I am with saabsonettguy on this one.

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?

Re: What hek kind of moped is this?
