Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

I'm considering picking one of these up,.....are they big bikes (I'm a big guy)?

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

No. Mopeds are not big vehicles by any means.

Although for larger dudes, I highly recommend motobecanes. They have a much longer frame accompanied by a long seat to get a better laid back seating position.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

Cool bikes, the minarelli engine is good, but the XL is kinda misleading as they are one of the smaller top tanks I've seen. A Puch Magnum or a Sachs G3 are bigger.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

I saw this on CL. It's totally sweet, but looks super small.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

get a motomarina sebring. theyre pretty dang big.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

I bet this thing would rip with a kit, pipe, intake and new carb

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

You could make a fucking sick custom build with that frame and engine though.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

Thanks for the input everybody. I have been looking for a large (large for a moped) top tank. It sounds like this isn't the "large" top tank that I have been holding out for.

Pity,....because the Cimatti in question looks REALLY clean.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

Yeah I saw it. Thats a good deal for a minarelli motor. The bike is pretty rare too. I wish he would trade my city bike for it

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

buy it!! you'll regret it later if you don't!! I almost drove down from san Jose!!

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

trust me,....i am so tempted to buy it, but I'm 6'4" and need to hold out for as large of a top tank as I can find.

I would buy it if so many people in this thread didn't tell me it's a small bike. It just wouldn't work out for a guy my size (I feel cramped on my Vespa Grande - and apparently that is one of the bigger bikes).

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

yeah, someone should get this bike for this price (the one in LA on CL). If I hadn't already driven to LA for my Sabre, I would run down and grab it in a minute, but as it is ... I am so broke. It's a great looking bike.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

I would buy it if I werent leaving for kansas city on Saturday. It would be a really great ped

its a deal too at 395

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

you will be cramped on any moped. they are small!! I'm 5 10 and my magnum is still small. you just need some apehangers!!

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

I hear you,....but I've been told that the Derbi's, Moby Sebrings and Sachs G3's are the biggest of all the mopeds. I was hoping this Cimatti might be roughly the same size - but apparently it's not.

I think a lot of my cramped feelings come from the fact that I have primarily ridden enduro motorcycles over the years, prior to my Grande - and enduros tend to be tall, roomy cycles. I am not looking for something so unreasonable that it's going to give me motorcycle type comfort,.....but I would like one of the largest of the mopeds out there.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

I would also look for (rare, but around) a Puegeot TSM (which is similar to all the others you mentioned). and, also, a great ride from what I hear.

Perfekt Timing Angel /

I've seen 2 or three of these in person, and I always thought they were big. They are taller than my Sebrings, but shorter length-wise than them.

Go check it out. It's not a bike you see everyday.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

Has anyone called the guy? I wanna know how long the line is. I totally want this. I would have to take it apaart and throw it in my car to take it home but hell it might be worth it

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

Your Citybike is the same thing without the crossbar and tank. You could convert yours into a top tank with little effort.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

I'm not so sure its the same

the frame on the city bike looks to be elongated, more so than that of the Grand Prix. I guess you maybe right though it looks to be pretty similar otherwise

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

i have a grand prix XL and it rules.

ditch that minarelli and get to stuffing a tomos or something else in there

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

its gone :[

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL - info please

Bummer,......it's the height that I would like more than the length! I should have gone and checked it out!
