So. I've got a TON of stuff for sale and I'll post some pics tomorrow. For now, let me start with the bikes:1 red Derbi (pyramid reed valve)1 silver Derbi (piston port)1 gold Puch (kitted)1 Kreidler2 1960s Peugeot BBs (one apart for painting... this was meant to be a major project so I have a lot of Peugeot parts for this)I believe both Derbis and the Puch were running when they were par
Derbis sold. Peugeot 103 is back off the market, so this thread is closed... except for the parts I've got--I'll get in touch with you gentlemen next week.
Brad--so in the next few weeks we should definitely schedule a hangout session. After next week things will be easier to fit in for me. Let's do this thing.Seth--yeah. Too many projects not enough time. So it goes. That thing deserves to be on the road.
Thanks Charlie. The Derbi logo on the seat back I cut from high quality reflective material and sewed on by hand.
Might have sold both Derbis. Just waiting to see if everything goes through.
Ben, I didn't know that you had an MA reputation as a hoarder.
Wut, Ben? I'm keeping my Peugeot and Vespa stuff. :)
I went back out and took a look--of course the white one IS a flat reed. How could I forget that? Sabat, I do have a pyramid reed swingarm. I won't be able to get my hands on it until next week (it's packed in a box at my mom's house) but I can get it then. $50 + shipping, if you're interested.
You know what, tyrohde, you might be right. I'll have to check. I know for sure that Fruits is a flat reed...
When do you head out? Let's plan something if we can.I did build that engine--but have some work to do on it... one of the things I'm keeping :)
Mopagen--I remember seeing that one! Still got all those parts around?Sabat--not planning on parting it out, but we do have other Derbi parts laying around, so let me know if there's something specific you're looking for.
Hey, Brad, you're doing a garage sale, too! I just put up a post for a few of our mopeds in Pittsburgh. We should catch up one of these days, duder.
Alright, people, we have too many bikes. I've attached photos of the three we're selling:1. Titled 1984 Derbi Variant. This has the flat reed engine and a metrakit 70 on it. Was running like a bat out of hell, but I hadn't properly tuned it to get it idling well before I parked it, so it will need attention before it's ready to rock. I put a lot of time and attention into m
Alan, I spit out my coffee I laughed so hard at your art-response.
hahaha. Ticket for driving a shopping cart. What do you think they'd put as a vehicle type if someone was recklessly driving this?!http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_a1JHm3aPpag/SoxUXkYeDdI/AAAAAAAABmk/DXr-wjTAzko/s400/1270822318.jpg!
i was actually just thinking that it would be awesome if people would post which variator weights they use for Vespas and Motobecanes
Unfortunately, there's no good (or reliable) way to tell what pin size you have without taking off your head and cylinder. It's not worth the money to guess.
Apparently my friend Todd also has the carb that you seek information on. At least I think it is. It's Encarwi 885-23/25. If you snag any information on these, would you mind tossing it my way so I can pass it along to him? Thanks!
Thanks guys. That helps a lot. I knew it was too good to be true. I'll tell Todd. Oh, and John, I found a website that has all sorts of Batavus info from the search engine. Here's a set of pages speficically designed to help you figure out the Encarwi carbs and how they can be modified for better performance.http://miniengine.0catch.com/Mopeds/BatCarb/BatCarbPg1.html
How funny that we asked the same question simultaneously. I hope somebody does know the answer to it. If you get any leads outside this post, could you contact me? I'll do the same for you.
I have a friend whose got a batavus with a laura m48 siezed to all hell. He has a chance to purchase a laura m56 (off a trac eagle) and hopes to slap this on as a replacement... which brings me to the question of compatibility. I realize there are some differences between them, but my main question is: will the m56 bolt on in the same manner as the m48? Does anyone know a clear reason why they
I use Ngk BH6S. 70cc malossi kit, so, a colder plug.
Hey, Jefe and I are running almost exactly the same setup. We ported our transfers, enlarged the intake to 13mm, cut the crank and have malossi variators and malossi air filters with the foam. I don't know if the "high compression" head is much different from the standard 70cc kit (which is what we've got) but other than this, we have almost exactly the same setup as yours.
With a carb much bigger than stock, will he have to alter his intake (or buy a new one?)
My friend is looking to upgrade his carb. His ped is stock, excepting a sickass pipe he's getting (MK3) to give him a boost. What are people's recommendations for sizes and brands? I saw some old posts claiming that Dellortos are good, but I didn't see any sizes mentioned. Is there a general principle for how large you can go without major mods to the engine? Any Derbi owners o
We figured out what kind of oil to use, SAE 90, so unless someone has arguments otherwise, you can nix this thread.
What I have now is a super heavyduty U-lock, about an inch thick. I wish I could remember the manufacturer's details right now, but can't.
A security guard sounds reasonable. Or I could spring the money to buy all the stuff joe has listed so that I can go steal another one once mine's been pinched. :)I realize that prevention isn't best accomplished by alarms or locks alone--and that placement is the most important factor. I also know that pretty much any deterrent can be surmounted by a dedicated thief. But if I had an
yeah, I'm debating its usefulness, but I'd like to have my options in front of me before deciding what's the best combination of security measures for me.
I'm curious to know which ones work with a 6 volt battery. I've seen people suggest the Gorilla system. For anyone who's used this--did you have problems related to the fact that it's set up for a 12v battery?
