What kind of shape are those carbs in?
Man I could really use that. I've been looking for a straight wheel for a while now.
In the us the mopeds were branded Vespa. Often the nameplates have both Vespa and piaggio. Piaggio is relatively unkown however there are a few scooters around.
Im interested for sure. Looks like your in Canada, is it expensive to ship to USA?
Let me know email@example.comThanks
I'd take you up on that. PayPal?
Since you have two you can swap parts and compare
I got this from trets. Haven't used it yet
I haven't read your other threads so not sure what's been covered. It's best to bump one thread.Maybe the exhaust is plugged. Are you absolutely sure you've cleaned the jet? When you look through it you should be able to see a clean hole.
It's more about overall size and not "bearing clearance". Since you didn't measure before you disassembled then measure another stock crank.
^ performance gains can be made on a vespa crank by making the intake duration larger. I've rebuilt a couple and have had an easier time squaring up the lobes before I cut it.If you have the tools it's a fun project.
Don't cut the crank untill you've got it back together and straight. That's my two cents.
Check the tank. Side covers and motor top cover are a plus. Ciaos are the opposite of ugly.
There's a shop here in STL that can put your bike on a dyno then adj timing and jets. You can potentially reach max usable hp that way. That's how you build hi end motors/bikes.
I think yours looks good. Nice bike
Pans rusty so I think all you'd want was the cover. $25
I have a seat that's been recovered. Pretty decent job. I'll post a pic in a bit.
It could change frame geometry. Probly no big deal tho. Front brake plate and the way it attaches to fork is a common hangup with swapping any vespa wheels. After you research h it you'll probly stick with stock but you don't have too. I've seen 17 on the rear as well.
One thing that I don't think was mentioned was grounding the blue wire to the frame with a set of alligator clips. Colors can be diff on some models I think but essentially your eliminating the brake light circuit. The brake light issue was mentioned but not the brake light switches and associated wiring. Also disconnect if you can the kill switch. If you get spark when the blue wires grou
I'll try again. Thanks for the info.
This is from a grande. I'll measure the threads if needed. $10 PayPal firstname.lastname@example.org if you want it. Dirty but otherwise perfect.Dutch Puch I can't buy from those folks you mentioned , would you be a middleman?
P200. Two stroke, qwirky, tons of parts and support. Not a moped but still cool
I have one I salvaged from a rusty tank grande I scrapped. I'd let it go pretty cheap.
Maybe some lube for the rear.I use a bigger contra for quicker downshifting but sounds like that's already there so try the lube
Could be a plugged up exhaust
1.Decomp stuck open or bad, 2, rings stuck in piston due to carbon or old oil, 3.scratch is a smear and you've seized. Straight gas can cause bad damage.Some stock ciaos aren't all that fast. Pics may help. Good luck!
I find the shifting is a breeze but don't be afraid to check your shifter cables for damage and adj. You can replace just the inner cable. Damage occurs at the handlebar. Your gonna love it.
One big difference on the Stella is that they use read valves. I'm not an authority but I think all Stella's are RV. And some are automatic. Kids these days don't care for the shifting. I fixed up a 77 p200 last year and its been fun.A lot of people won't know the difference. Keep your eye on frame damage at the front of the floor boards.
