Looking for pipe for 78 pinto - e50.My buddy got one of these and has a straight pipe. Looking for one to bolt on.Local pickup would be amazing but willing to buy to ship.
I just finished replacing my Motron’s shocks with maxi EBRs from treats.The forks seem great compared to motrons janky forks. Sturdy and look good.The threads that come out the headset are longer than stock so you’ll need a spacer either below bottom race or drop the fork tubes and space at top below top fork nut (or have very deep top fork nut). If you drop the tubes you would end up with slightl
Thanks for the info guys. I had already done the rear and reused old spring but it was kind of worn out.The taco method sounds great but the circle type really limits any folding where it’s around the post.Sounds like Manhandling is the way to go!I didn’t know if there was a tool that made this a piece of cake.Thanks again guys!
I’ll check it out. Thanks!
What’s the trick for expanding the springs to reach?
https://www.ebay.com/itm/GRIMECA-NOS-Brake-Cable-Pinch-Stop-Locking-Screw-Bolt-Vintage-Mini-Bike-Moped-/121250630547Ordered this. Would still love one locally if possible.Measured the flat part of bolt at 6.55mmInner measurement of brake lever at 6.89Not sure if the treats 7mm will fit?Thanks!
Broke a cable pinch bolt for brake line and hoping to score one quickly locally. It’s the ones that are flat where the cable feeds through.Came off motron with snowflakes.Willing to pay top dollar for quick pickup and fix!Let me know if you need additional info. Thanks!
Is it up for grabs?I have a v2 motron wouldn’t mind having an extra laying around ;)
what color is it and how much, greg?
My FA50's front fork is bent and I'm looking for a new one. Preferably with red paint in good condition as the rest of the ped is in near perfect condition.Thanks!
I am helping a friend put new rings on his 83. We ordered the stock 40mm x 1.5mm rings and once they arrived realized that his stock jug was previously overbored. We had no idea the previous owner had overbored the jug. The piston measures 45mm. The inside diameter of the old\correct rings measure 42.5 and outside diameter is 45mm. We arent sure whether to order the .25 or .5 oversized rings.
Thanks for the insight.I believe I found someone who will help me weld a solution. I also heard someone talking about indigan possibly making a part in the past that would give me the additional clearance I'm looking for as well. If anyone has that laying around gathering dust please let me know!
I am looking to install a new pipe (MLM St. Ripper) but I will have pedal arm clearance issues. I am looking to buy either pedal arm extenders or arms that have additional clearance to begin with. If anyone has what I need or information that would help me please let me know!This is for a Minarelli V2 but all pedal arms that fit any Minarelli should work fine.Thanks,Ryan
I am in Louisville KY.I have a MLM St Ripper exhaust I want to put on my V2. The exhaust studs (Polini 75cc) are too narrow for the flange the way it is. I need to mod the flange to allow it to not only bolt up but still allow pedal\variator clearance which will be a trick. By looking at the flange its going to be difficult to narrow the holes and allow both a nut and washer to bolt tightly an
I need a 28t rear sprocket. Will be going on a V2 but to my understanding a V1 will work fine.Thanks
I am one of the guys who purchases new parts from treats/1977 and I have spent close to 1000 in parts alone on my Motron over the last few months. That doesnt include what the ped itself cost. If I was patient and tracked down used parts.. to confirm Chubbs statement.. it would have been considerably less.Ive met people who have built amazing mopeds for a matter of a few hundred bucks. Im appar
Took a little video a few minutes ago. Just showing it running for those interested. I'm running a bit lean at the moment so I didnt do anything too interesting.. lol.All the same, soon enough I'll post better vids and of this bad boy going.. Its pretty quick I think. Doubt the top speed will blow anyones mind but its low end is quite impressive.If I can prove capable of ordering the
First off.. that Testi (pic in profile) is completely wicked gnarly badass. I wanna know more about that thing!Second.. Ive ran across that schematic which is a big help in a lot of ways but I want to know where to order the parts based on the parts #'s listed ;)Isnt the email to Angelo? Seems like it was as he is the guy who sold me the leo vinci thats currently on there.It would be GREAT
Thanks dude! It's been a lot of work to this point and even more in the future to get it where it needs to be. Its kind of scary because it is so rare. I'm sketchy when doing anything to it because Im well aware how difficult\near impossible V2 parts are to find. I've had my fingers crossed the entire time.Its odd you mention dom. I actually just fired up the forum to track him
I definitely will post all results on here. Also keep an eye open for questions I post in other forums as I am always looking for advice and help as I have not found a manual. It seems like one had to exist at some point but as far as locating it I have been unable in my attempts. If I were to guess italy would be a good place to start looking. Im about positive none have been uploaded digital
That just may work, friend. Dont know why I didnt think of that! Ill let you know what I find! There will definitely be a video. As soon as I get it dialed in Ill shoot a cpl video's to show what this V2s all about.Jeremy Shay (Scary Bandit) is the only person I've met in town with a built V1 and from what I understand his ped is beast mode. Im excited to compare the differences in th
Will do. It may happen one day. I have gone to great lengths to ONLY modify the kit, exhaust, etc and leave the V2 itself completely untouched. The engine appears to be in exceptional condition in every way. As for now I'm going to continue to take it slow and do it right as to not damage such a rare find. Im very excited to have this as a project bike and once I'm done I maaaay dec
Thats it bro and thanks! Been slooooowly getting work done to it.I was super lucky in tracking down a NOS long seat (Thanks a lot peeps at 77mopeds for going above and beyond).I also forgot to mention that it has a 75cc high compression garelli head on it though that was probably obvious it isnt stock.. lol.As far as the performance related questions I'll have to get back to you on that as I
I scored a 78 Motron a few months back with a V2. It took a long time to get the parts for a build as it only went about 25 to begin with. I figured Id share the progress with you up to this point.75cc Polini21mm Dellorto (still tuning.. waiting on more jets, etc)21mm MLM intakeLeo Vinci Exhaust (I do have a MLM St Ripper but havent gotten around to modifying the flange and making a bracket yet)
If anyone in the Louisville KY area has a jet around the 100 range please contact me as I would like to purchase it. I just finished a build on a Motron Minarelli V2 and the 90 jet in the 21mm dellorto is too lean. Im guessing starting around 100 would be a safe bet.I am willing to pay good money for the jet and also willing to purchase and ship a replacement jet to you. I am just impatient!Tha
So basically what you are saying is the 21mm is a bit too much and the St. Ripper is too much top end for what I should be looking to do, eh?At the time of ordering the 19mm intake was out of stock. Only reason I ended up with the St. Ripper is because it became available with less than 5 in stock so I jumped on the opportunity. I plan to run the Leo Vinci initially and at some point test out th
You may very well be right. I plan to tear it down at some point in the future, maybe winter. I'm also going to see how it runs after the initial build before I decide whether I even need to mess with such things.Anyone know about the sprockets and whether they are interchangeable with the v1\v1L's?
I can see it both ways. I'm down either way. I suppose as long as I'm running proper fuel/air it should be fine either way.
A good idea, actually.. I didnt even consider that.. Whats a good estimate on how much I should upjet for that? Id hate to spend too much time\money buying jets I will probably never use again..
