Looking good so far... :29


You have the right approach Bob, I started thinking what have a bought then reaised it was a case of what have I saved!

Easy question; Frame and swinging arm, rear hub, rebuilt the rear shockers, fork yolks, bottoms and headlamp ears, instruments (rebuily) both stainless mudguards and the export tank (rusty inside) crankcase halves (3 halves of course!) gearbox and primary outers (with welding on all) and finally some of the primary internals.

So not a whole hill of beans to be honest as all the rest inc the head, barrells, crank, rods, cams, timing chest and gearbox interals turned out to be scrap! £££££££££££££££££ :154 ££££££££££££££££££

Good job i didn't pay too much for it!! :18 :18 :18

The green seat is on the wall where it is staying!

Dig we are talking about the restricted Sh!t that they had in UK at the time , as a moped it was not allowed to be faster than 30MPH etc. and as Alan said he needed quite a bit of work on his plus a long downhill :501 :501

A standard Fizzie would normally do about 45-50 MPH on the flat, which wasn't bad for a 49cc bike in it's day!!!!

'Mopeds' were not power restricted in the UK at that time (as they are now) although they had to have a capacity of less than 50cc. But mopeds of the period had to have pedals that could actually be operated and therefore could be ridden on the road by a 16+ year old in the UK.
Any 50cc machine without pedals was classed as a motorcycle, so could only be ridden by a 17+ year old.
