CEV 1950s all in onePuch MS50 and Tomos Colibri switch late 1950's1950’s Clamp-On Switches
At left is a 1950’s Italian made CEV “All in One” clamp-on switch. “All in One” means all of the buttons in one switch unit: lights, horn, and engine stop. At right is a 1959 Tomos Colibri 4 light and horn switch, polished cast aluminum. In the 1950’s and 60’s Tomos and Puch mopeds were the same. Tomos Colibri was a Yugoslavian “remake” of the Austrian made Puch MS50 series (sheet metal 50).
 
 
1960’s – 1970’s Clamp-On Switches
Before 1973 on motorcycles, and before 1976 on motorized bicycles, switches did not have to meet US DOT requirements. They did not have to say what they were for. They did not have to be reachable without letting go of the handlebar.
 
Most 1950’s-60’s mopeds had an “All in One” type switch, either CEV, Aprilia, or others, mounted on the left handlebar.

1970’s and early 80’s Clamp-On Switches, US DOT compliant
Mopeds (motorized bicycles) had less strict equipment laws than motorcycles did, and still do. They don’t need to have turn signals, or a permanently-on head light. The US DOT equipment laws dictate what the switches do, what they say and where they go. Engine stop always goes on right, reachable by right thumb. Lights and horn are reachable by left thumb. In the 1970’s US DOT compliant switches had English words. After the mid 1980’s US DOT allowed international icons.

 Mclamp    $4  4-piece clamp, top, 2 sides, and a M4x12 screw 
 When the knob breaks off, repair it by sticking a red hot small nail straight in.   
 It freezes in strong. Cover the nail with tape and then shrink wrap.

343cap      Chrome cap with horn button – see #2 below
Same clamp as 342. When the knob breaks off, just leave the lights always on. 
On a pre-1977 Puch, with violet and yellow horn wires, if you remove this switch and unplug the horn the engine will still run.
Notice how the 1976 Puch horn wire (violet) goes in at the lower right.
 
 
Merit switch 343Merit 343Z lights and horn switch bodyMerit 343Z “Rectangular Chrome” Lights/Horn Switch – Left side

MP343Z   $50 used only  Switch assy, Puch part 349.3.53.817.0 (1977-on)
Same cap & clamp as 343. If the knob breaks, leave the lights always on.
On a 78-on Puch, if you remove this switch, and unplug the horn, the engine will not run. The blue wire with the black stripe is an “external ignition ground” wire. To bypass this, and make it run, ground the blue/black wire at the engine.
Notice the 1978 Puch horn wire (blue/black) goes in at the upper right.
 
These Merit switch modifications came from Mark Shroeder, Mopeds-A-Go-Go, in the late 1980’s:
To make a Merit 343Z (2 post) body into a 343, just move the wire to the other post.
To make a Merit 343 (1 post) body into a 343Z, it is possible, but not easy, to heat up, and relocate the horn post.
To make a Merit 343 (1 post) or 343Z (2 post) body into a 342, don’t do anything, just exchange the cap.
To make a Merit 342 (no post) into a 343 or 343Z, it’s difficult to make and install a post and exchange the cap.
To make a Merit 343 “LO-LO” into a “HI-LO”, cut the brass bridge between the “LO” posts and exchange the cap.
 
 
Merit Rectangular Chrome Switch Caps1 HI-LO-OFF  HORN  $20  used, tested
2 LO-OFF-LO HORN  $10  used, tested
The spring gets weak, and/or the rivet gets rusty. On most bikes, that just makes the horn weaker, but on a ’77-later Puch, that causes the horn to stay on slightly all of the time (so does a loose clamp).

Merit caps have highly polished high quality German chrome.

1970’s integrated controls: Aprilia or CEV Switches “molded into” Domino controls
Integrated controls means the electrical buttons and switches are part of the twist throttle and hand levers, rather than separate. The purpose of integrated controls is to locate the switches close to the operator’s thumbs, for increased safety and convenience, and to reduce cost and save space on the handlebar. Motorcycles had this first, because they have more buttons, generally. While the European switches below can be replaced separately from the controls, with most Taiwan and Japanese mopeds you had to buy the whole control assembly to get new switches and buttons. More on that will be in the Taiwan Mopeds parts department.

Early 80’s Domino-and-OSL-Integrated Switches: CEV “Diamond Plastic”
By the end of the 1970’s, the shape of pretty much everything from toasters to automobiles, that used to be rounded, was straight. Many things that were metal became plastic. On Garelli mopeds, the all curved Garelli “Oval Chrome” switch shape was modernized to CEV “Diamond Plastic”, with the same 36mm bolt spacing. The new design was much stronger and more resistant to breaking, because the sliding switch had a large platform that almost touches the base. The newer “knobs” are low and wide, not tall and thin.

At right, it’s European all-icon cousin. Over there they signal by momentarily flashing their high beam, rather than by horn. So their buttons have different functions. By 1984-85 Europe already had all-icon switches, a few years before the USA allowed them.

HR and Domino 1990's controls

Top: HR controls, Bottom: “80’s – 90’s Domino”

1990’s HR-Integrated Switches – All Icons
Icons appeared first on US mopeds in 1985 on Trac/Daelim, then in 1987 on Derbi Variant Sport and DS50. In the 1980’s the world somehow realized it made more economic sense for motorcycle switches to use symbols, with one version for all, rather than using words and having to make many language versions. By the 1990’s the US had switched to icons, at the time when Tomos and Jawa were the only European mopeds remaining. There were several “remakes”: Kinetic (India) is like Vespa/Piaggio, Manet (Slovakia) is like Puch, Hero (India) is like Puch, and others. Some of those copied “80’s – 90’s Domino” controls.
These HR (Hidria Rotomatika) switches below do not interchange with Domino. The HR switches are slightly smaller than Domino, and their top peg is smaller. HR switches must go on HR controls, aka “1992-2007 Tomos” controls.

Brake Light Switches:
On most mopeds of the 1970’s and 80’s (except Motobecane, Jawa, and Asian-made ones) there were two kinds of brake light switch. They were both made by CEV. They both screwed into the brake lever perch/mounts on Magura, Domino, OSL, and PV controls, where the button of the switch is pushed by the edge of the hand brake lever. They both have the same physical dimensions and appearance, except for the color of the tip/button. The black button brake light switch was “normally open” when installed, and became “closed” when the brake was squeezed. The white or brass tip brake light switch was “normally closed” when installed, and became “open” when the brake was applied.
 
What is confusing is that, unlike most momentary switches, the button (tip) is always being pushed in 99% of the time. Only when the brake is applied, is the button released. So a switch that is normally open when it is installed on the bike, is normally closed when it is off the bike in your hand. And visa versa. That is why the words “when installed” are added to the switch description.
