Why would you get rid of that engine?! I was almost excited, but then you mentioned the minarelli. The Carabela engine is like, identical, only with bigger ports. I think you may have made it slower with that Minarelli. :(

Re: FS 1978 Carabela Sport (San Fran)

There used to be a lot of disapproval of the original carabela engines. People used to think they were unreliable. I was just getting into mopeds back when josh was building that bike, but I'm pretty sure he bought that engine New-old-stock from handybikes.

Plus, you can't put a kit on a carabella.

rad!

Re: FS 1978 Carabela Sport (San Fran)

Carabela engines may have bigger ports but it's not worth it. To date I've never seen a fast carabela engine. You could port it but who cares. You can't upgrade the cylinder at all. No kits will work with it. So really I made the bike faster.

Re: FS 1978 Carabela Sport (San Fran)

does anyone know where i can get parts for these

Re: FS 1978 Carabela Sport (San Fran)

Carabela?

I would talk to handy bikes. They have minarelli stuff but I'm sure some things are interchangeable on both the engine and frame. If they don't have it, they may be able to guide towards a someone who does. BJ knows a lot about the old dealer network.
