I just picked up a newport up here in mass the ohter day.
Its cranberry color, paint is decent, needs wax. One of the decals that says newport on one side is junk.
It seems it had a za on it originally , it has the coil in the rear.
It didnt run, but had a za flywheel on it hahaha. It runs with the proper flywheel. It doesnt knock of make any wierd noises.
It does appear to have the high tourque cylinder. It has a 12mm carb that needs a cleaning if you were actually gonna run the silly thing and not put a 14mm on it
the rims are really nice chrome.
Bike is kinda hardwired. not right hardwired either, but it runs, seems like that was the orig owners point.
Clean tank , e50 , nice rims , missing sidecovers ( i actally have a set if this is a deal breaker )
Will need tire at least in the front, and cables and a little elbow grease but hey, its all there. Might take money offers but would prefer trade for Italian bikes ( mineralli / garelli / vespa, maybe no so much franco moroni unless its reed ) Maybe cause im still running a fever, a moby.
Ill entertain parts/kits , carbs whatever.
or it will make a good winter project for me.
