Peugeot 103 Speed Parts

This was asked on the general forum but about different parts then what I am contemplating. I am looking for feedback, in the first person, regarding building up a Peugeot 103. I have two types of big bore cylinders in mind, one type is iron and has a two ring piston, the other is aluminum, nickasil plated bore, with a single chromed ring piston. Which have you used, what brand, and how was it, any complications?

Re: Peugeot 103 Speed Parts

So nobody has any input on Peugeot kits? No reviews? Strange, every story I hear about these is secondary, few people seems to be building these.

Re: Peugeot 103 Speed Parts

I am building a custom 103 and am looking to get a malossi kit, its cheaper then most others and is cast iron. its heavier but if it seizes it is not a lost cause and is a bit less likely to seize (this is a good thing since it will be my first kit ever) and ill be getting a performance exhaust and carb (not sure what those will be yet)

Re: Peugeot 103 Speed Parts

ok I have a gilardoni 70, simonini circuit, 16 SHA... I have it all on without case matching.... there is a big port that I have to dremel into the case... the gilardoni is very cool though.... port design is awesome... the simonini pipe fits pertty well and stays out of the way... sort of. I started to break it in, but changed my mind, and I'm going to case match before I continue... the pipe was the only part of the insatll that wasn't smooth... there was really no way to mount the pipe at the head... the simonini springs had nothing to mount to on the head... so I made some brackets... then I had to cut the chain tensioner off of the pedal chain... and the end of the can hits the swingarm when the motor variates.... so far that's it... when I was running it around, breaking it in, it was fast... WAY more acceleration than I was expecting... um that's all I can think of.

Re: Peugeot 103 Speed Parts

What about the clutch and variator? Any issues with those? Bottom end? What about the reed valve? I'm curious how resistant the Gilardoni would be to siezure and cylinder damage, and how durable the single ring designs are? So you only needed a 16mm, I figured something larger might be needed.

Re: Peugeot 103 Speed Parts

I use a 70cc polini kit along with a polini case which has the reeds that drop into the engine casing. I'm also using a peugeot designed and built CDI on the bike and a 19mm phbg on the engine and a malossi variator with a ninja pipe. The setup is a pain to tune though and I might try something simpler like just a kit with some moderate port work on engine case to start out along with the 4 reed kit and carb and pipe. You should also search the forums and look at all the setups people have done, that might help with some decision making. Oh and the Gilardoni is good kit I know someone with one and it's been good for him. Last piece of advice, spend lots of time tuning the bike. I generally try to just avoid the whole seizing problem and make sure you are running the engine at right mixture through the whole throttle range.

Re: Peugeot 103 Speed Parts

Polini is too much money, and quite frankly their reputation for having a short service life sort of turns me off. I appreciate the input though, keep it coming.

Re: Peugeot 103 Speed Parts

Go with the Gilardoni. Drop the quad reed Malossi intake on it and you will SMOKE your buddies. Reliable.....and extrememly fast.

You'll love it.

Just give Treats a visit on ebay. He'll hook you up!
