yea they look really neat. Both of them are 1981 models. A belt...? didn't think of that but I dont think thats it because the belt on it seems pretty good. oooo Thats cool how the 51 motors can be kitted. Well I bought 3 and my dad is going to take 2 of them and I'll only get one even though I bought them so I mean, I'm still thinking about which to take. The 51v need a considerable amount of more work. The 50v is almost totally complete. I think because I have a batavus project and a puch maxi project I'm going to take the easy way and go for the 50v. We have had some verrrry fast motobecanes. I new about the speed classes but the thought never entered my mind that the ones we had were of different class. It explaines why our old rusty one flew by the mint one. It was a higher class!
One of the 51v's is a C class and the other is a B so I think I'm getting an ok deal.
After all, we drove a good 150 miles or so to get them. Yea we have relatives in the area but had no intention of going proir to this deal. I'm really pumped to get that A speed on the road. According to my father we've never had one and that old rust one was a real beast! Whoooo!
Ok, thanks for all your help guys.
My dad is a mechanic but the more brains on this the easier it will be to get it running. think we wil want to hang on to the 51v's but I think that once I get this 50v all good and running and a reall sweet moped, I'll sell it in the spring. The nicest thing about the 51v's is the seat. It's easily big enough for 2. I mean, with room to spare. These motobecanes even had racks and mint clean tanks. O Yea!!!
Any other thoughts on my issues be sure to share!
Thanks For Your Help!
