What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank tank

So I'm going to go and pickup a bike with the description..."it's a flat black Minarelli high tanker with mag wheels."

sebring?

concord shadow?

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

If it's a Sebring w/ Minarelli, it would be a rare bird indeed. I'd love if it would turn out to be a Concord Shadow, or a repainted Cimatti, Baretta, or something.

Odds are it's a General 5-Star or a Safari of some kind, but I've rarely had either of these with mags.

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

My guess would be Sebring. cause they always have mags.

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

my vote is safari.

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

the safari turbos had mags didnt they? wouldnt be a bad find

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

I have a mid 80s Safari Turbo and it has spokes. The Variomatics ones I have all have spokes. Finding another one of these would be great too.

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

i have seen a few safaris with snowflakes.

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

And a Safari it is...and a seized one at that. Actually it ended up being 2 bikes. It also came along with a late model Garelli parts bike.

Rob @t ATTN! Burrito /

haha got your wish about that seat on my safari

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

wow, and 5 stars to boot! good deal. are they sealed bearing? that seat is jacked up to the sky

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

Yes, a nice early style Safari seat is a tough find. This one was recovered well at some point in its lifetime. I would assume that there are sealed bearings in these wheels, although I didn't actually check. I'll go over the wheels, tires and brakes after the engine rebuild is completed tomorrow.

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

Sweet! I like Safaris better anyway. I think those are the same 16" mags that I have on my Safari. I put mine on after the fact ( came with busted spokes) but they are sealed bering.

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

You're riht. Safaris are a great bike. I've have a set of these same wheels (in gold) on another bike. I've rarely seen them anywhere else.

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

Mr. Schatz your Safari would be a lot more squishy with that big seat on there. Is that really what the stock seats looked like on those?

Re: What will it be? Looking @ Minarelli top tank

That the correct seat (recovered). Safari began using the rectangular style seats after 1980 or 81 I think.
