Sorry Allan even if it was half the price I would think its overpriced for some thing you could pedal faster than the engine could drag it along, maybe in a another 75 years, worm

50cc of FS1E is good for 65mph plus and i would sure like to see you pedal it faster than the engine could drag it along :501 nz-flag111 worm

Twas the law at the time here that mopeds had to have pedals that worked, they were thinking Raleigh runabouts and the like but along came the crafty Japanese with their sports mopeds folowed by the Italians with the Garelli Tigers and Fantics, way too exotic for me!

Very true Dig I did once achieve an indicated 68 mph with a home porting job and replcement of the baffles with a 15mm copper pipe down a big hill , Fiz at 68mph frighened the shit out of me when I got to the corner at the bottom of the hill!

Still that price is BS!

"Restored at a cost of over £4000" What in the name of fook is there to spend that much on! I can't see any gold plated fittings, so must be mostly bullshite! Either that or he's been well and truly shafted by someone somewhere..lol :205

Slow and steady I am afraid Bob, this is a bit old now but you get the idea, I have been successful in assembling a very expensive T150 kit that I intend to assemble this winter ready for next year, taken too long I know but 3 kids, wife full time student etc etc etc

Before, as bought from one careful owner in New York!

Current (ish) in cellar, since bought a Viking 3 into 1 from Paul Bryant in NZ

To be honest it is about 75% a different bike as it was such a wreck (worse than I thought) and not much was salvageable, it did come with the missing engine parts but they all turned out to be scrap! Still better 'saved' than broken up!

So what did you save? The frame? Hope you found the right person for that green seat! (Assuming you sold it)

Looking good so far... :29
