Pryer is a trade name made up by Pryer Motorcraft, 4563 State Route 235, Ada Ohio 45810. Pryer is mostly known for their three wheeled mopeds (trikes). At least three different two-wheelers have been used to produce three-wheelers. Puch (Austria), Tomos (Yugoslavia), and Moto BM (Italy). The Italian (same as Gadabout) two wheel bikes were made in Bologna Italy, by Moto BM, and then converted into three wheelers in Ohio USA. Later Italian bikes were the Motomarina Raven kind. Various options were offered.

Tri-Rad     made in USA by Mopeds Midwest     Puch or Tomos

Tri-Rad is a trade name made up by Mopeds Midwest (MM), 320 Main St, Ames Iowa 50010.

At the time these were considered bicycles, so they could motor to the beach, turn the engine off, and pedal down the boardwalk selling ice cream or pizza. Too bad the deluxe three wheeled moped, with differential drive, and hot/cold food box, costed more than some automobiles! That was the only thing that was not three times as rad.

Taiwan-made Moped Parts (except Indian)

August 27, 2012

Welcome. Myron’s Mopeds carries some parts for General, Grycner, Angel, Speed Bird, AMS, Lazer mopeds and other late 1970′s to mid 1980′s Taiwanese compatibles. Many things are already offered in Parts/By Type. 

Taiwan mopeds were imported into the United States in the late 1970′s surge of consumer demand. It was common for small companies to order one container with about 100 units. You could order them with your own choice of decals, or blank, or with their default names, like “Speed Bird”. Even the owners manuals, which were made by the manufacturers, were available either with the brand name of your choice, or blank, where you put your own labels.

Many of the Taiwan mopeds sold in the United States were from the Los Angeles area, because of the Port of Los Angeles, the busiest container port in the US, and because it’s the closest port to Taiwan. Most of the lower price Taiwan mopeds, like Moprix, Speed Bird and Wheel King were sold in the urban part of Los Angeles. The opposite of those was the General brand, the high end of Taiwan mopeds, with the highest quality.

Taiwan components are similar and sometimes exact copies of Japanese items, particularly Honda. More will follow later about Taiwan component families, and Asian versus European design philosophy and practices. Basically Asian mopeds are made like scaled down motorcycles, European mopeds are made like scaled up bicycles. That’s an oversimplification.

In 1985 they switched to making scooters, kid’s motorcycles and ATVs with their new brand name “Adly Moto”. The moped importer was A.M.S. Imports, 923 Moana West, Reno Nevada 89509, or 1110 S Wells Av, Reno NV 89502.  AMS mopeds were the Sierra 50 (Sachs 505/1D 1-speed auto, step thru), Tahoe G1 (Sachs 505/1D 1-speed automatic top tank), Tahoe G2 (Sachs 505/2D 2-speed manual grip shift, top tank) made from 1979 to 1984. The AMS Tahoe was a copy of an earlier Peugeot Sport top tank moped, just like the Lazer Sport 50 and the General 5 Star.   

AMS components: Sachs 505/1D engine (higher torque than 505/1A), Bing Sachs carburetor, 85% the same as General 5 Star, except: controls are slightly different – lever blades are bigger, hubs and brakes are way bigger, rims are slightly wider, turn signals are smaller, cover screws are different size, M6 not 5?.

Some were completely blank, where you would put your own brand name on the cover, and some said CUYLER.

1976 Gilera Mopeds flyerGileraGilera  made in Italy by Piaggio   Piaggio

Gilera was founded in Arcore, Italy in 1909 by Giuseppe Gilera. After four decades of making motorcycles, in the 1950′s Gilera had the technical expertise to win the 500cc motorcycle world championship 6 times in 8 years. In 1969, Gilera was purchased by Piaggio.

1976 Gilera Trial Moped

Gilera motorcycles were sold in the US, as a Sears brand in the 1960′s. Gilera mopeds, with pedals, were never sold in the US. These “sport mopeds” at left were for England in 1973 to 1977, where there was no limit on power or speed or transmission gears, only 50cc with pedals. Many of those “sport mopeds” went 55 or 60mph. Wow! 

The Vespa Grande, a US model, is 80% the same as a Gilera cbA, a Euro model, both made by Piaggio. The lights, electrical wiring, and long seat are the main differences.

Maico is a trade name used by importer/distributer M.P.I. A true Maico is German-made, usually a motocross or trail bike. Maico mopeds are made by Italy by Moto Bimm.

Moto Bimm was founded in 1965 by Jose Becocci in Florence, Italy. They produced off-road motorcycles from 50 cc through 125 cc using Minarelli engines. Later there were sport bikes and mopeds with various small engines. The Maico moped is one, famously known as the Billo in Italy. Sometime in the 1970′s Moto Bimm became Motori Bimm and then Bimotor, which lasted until 1980. Note that “Moto Bimm” is not Moto BM (Bonvicini Marino) and “Bimotor” is not Motobi (Benelli). The names are all similar.

Moto BimmMaico components: Minarelli V1 engine, Dellorto SHA 14/12 (or 14/9) carburetor, CEV lights and switches, Domino controls and levers, Grimeca hubs and brakes, CEV 6932 magneto, CEV speedometer with LH driver.

FMB Telaimotor Fabbrica Motocicli Bologna Telaimotor (Bologna Motorcycle Factory that makes motor Frames) was one of the myriad companies in and around Bologna, Italy through the ’50s to the ’80s that specialised in building their own chassis. FMB was based at 38 Via Fossolo, but sadly now there’s a company building lab equipment instead. FMB should not be confused with FBM (Fabbrica Bolognese Motocicli). FMB made chassis and nearby FBM made engines.

  Garelli Monza GT 1984-1986  

This beautiful piece of Italian art and engineering arrived very late in the USA moped sales curve. As a result, American Garelli did not sell many Monza GT’s, and so they are rare in the USA today. The parts are even rarer. The Monza GT has a 2-speed automatic, vertical cylinder engine, with pedals, like the 1978-1985 VIP, except some of the engine is different. The bore and stroke are both 40 x 39mm, but the VIP has a 1970′s style cast iron cylinder, while the Monza GT has a 1980′s style all aluminum cylinder with lots of fins. The cases are different at the cylinder base. The piston has a very high crown, like the early 1970′s European models such as Tiger, but with a boost transfer port rectangular window on the upper intake side of the piston. Apparently a Tiger piston works in a Monza GT, without the transfer port window, but makes less power.

Out of about 20 moped shop buyouts in the 1980′s and 1990′s, Myrons Mopeds accumulated a “wall” of moped parts manuals, dealer notebooks, sales brochures, service and training manuals. Out of all that there was no 1984-1986 Garelli parts manuals or information. Out of 5000 mopeds serviced over 33 years, only about one or two were Monza GT’s. That’s how rare they are in Southern California. That’s why the only parts for Monza GT that Myrons has, are parts that are the same as other models.


Here are some 1984 Monza GT pictures. 1984′s were silver, spoke or mag wheels, round headlight, radial fin head.

Here are some 1985 Garelli Monza GT pictures. 1985′s were black, spoke or mag, square lite, straight fin head.

Here are some 1986 Garelli Monza GT/S pictures. 1986′s were gold with gold mags, square lite, straight fin head.

Here are some Monza GT engine pictures.



Sachs Engine

August 26, 2012





Sachs engines have the following numbering scheme:



  • 50 is the engine size 30, 50, 80, 100,150, 175 (50 for US models)
  • X is the bottom end designation 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 (4, 5 or 8 for US models).
  • Y is the number of speeds 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or A ( 1 or A for US models)
  • Z is the cylinder designation, and represents the speed restrictions applied, and may be A, B, C or D
  • W is an additional designation sometimes included on later models and import models to identify other peculiarities. A “K” for example indicates the kickstart version.

For example: the most common would be the 505/1A which has the longer “5″ bottom end, “1″ speed transmission, and an “A” speed rating, with corresponding “A” carb, intake, cylinder and exhaust.

Minarelli Engine

August 26, 2012

Welcome. Myron’s Mopeds carries some Minarelli V1 moped engine parts. Things like pistons and rings are already offered in Parts/By Type. Click to enlarge images. 

 Motori Minarelli of Italy made great little one-speed automatic 49cc moped engines, fan cooled. Center, the earliest (1975-1977) Minarelli V1 engines had a metal (aluminum) fan cover 5430, with three 6mm bolts 5450, a plastic fan 5410, and an aluminum fan cover base 5390. Left, the later (1977-1979) Minarelli V1 engines had a grey plastic fan cover 5440, with four 4mm phillips bolts 7050 (that often rust solid), the same fan 5410, and a plastic fan cover base 5400. Right, the latest V1 (1979-1985) had a slightly smaller black plastic fan cover 5445, with the same bolts 7050, a different plastic fan 5415, and a plastic fan cover base 5405. None of the fan parts interchange. Furthermore, most of the fans made ended up breaking off all their fins from hitting a damaged or loose fan cover, so the fans are very scarce. The V1 engines had either 38.8mm 4540, 38.7mm  4535, or 38.0mm 4500 (20mph version) pistons.

Besides the fan cover differences, there was an early “stub plane” style crankshaft 4410, and a later “cone” style crankshaft 4460. Those also had different clutch housings (6200 cone and 4940 stub) and three different clutch nuts (6270 cone right thread, 6275 cone left thread, 5040 stub).

Later, in the early 1980′s, Minarelli introduced the V1L, 49cc one-speed automatic with a crankcase two-petal reed valve. The piston size changed from 38.8mm 4640 to 40.3mm 4641. So the crank changed to a shorter stroke, from 4460 (Cone style crankshaft) to 4461 (V1L short stroke crankshaft). The cylinder was still cast iron.

Still later, in the mid 1980′s Minarelli introduced the V1HL, 49cc one-speed automatic with the same case reed, a new aluminum cylinder with more fins, a bigger head also with more fins, and a needle bearing on the piston pin instead of a brass bushing. The V1HL did not have a cooling fan. Instead it had an electric start mechanism where the fan was. The Minarelli V1HL electric start high torque one speed was used on mid to late 1980′s Motomarina three wheeled mopeds. 

By the late 1980′s, mopeds were out of style, and scooters were popular. Minarelli made 49cc two-stroke scooter engines with variators all through the 1990′s, and still does today. Minarelli has always been behind the scenes, making engines for “everybody”, but not advertising or taking much credit. Many people who own certain scooters don’t know their engine is made by humble and wise Minarelli.

Sparta lo-resSparta currentSparta history, as told by Sheldons Emu:  “Established as a bicycle factory in Apeldoorn, Holland, named Verbeek & Schakel in 1917, the company very soon changed its name to Sparta and produced their first autocycles of 74cc and 98c in 1931 using Sachs engines. During the 1930s they built numerous motorcycles using Villiers engines of 148cc and 200cc, many of which were delivery vehicles for bakers, milkmen and the like, and JLO powered machines were added to the range towards the end of the thirties. Subsequent to WWII 250cc Victoria power units saw service in Sparta motorcycles, and a rather nice 98cc Villiers powered scooter was built between 1953 and 1957. Production of motorcycles ceased in 1965.”

1987 Spartamet

Moped production began in 1931 but got big after WWII and continued strong until the 70′s. 1965 was the peak year for Sparta moped production, with 380 workers making 47,000 units. The 1975 helmet law in The Netherlands made the already declining moped sales worse. Sales got a boost from exports to the US during 1977-1980, but declined after 1980, with new US laws and lower gas prices.  Sparta made it’s last “classic” moped in 1982. In the mid-80′s Sparta and Sachs joined forces to make a gas powered rear-engine pull-start motorized bicycle, the 18mph 30cc Spartamet. That was the last gas powered moped Sparta made, and the single most succesful moped model, after 60 years from 1931 to 1992. In 1990, 105,000 bikes were made, and 20,000 of them (1 out of 4) were Spartamets. Sparta B.V. continues to build bicycles and electric powered bikes. They are still in Apeldoorn, but in a smaller facility, at 37 Wilmersdorf. Tour the superb online Sparta history museum.

Sparta long lo-res

The USA had two kinds of Sparta mopeds, both curvey sheet metal stampings, welded together down the center seam, both with Sachs 504/1A engines (in either 45km=26mph, or 25km=17mph versions). The Buddy aka Foxi has the gas tank in front. The Lucky aka Flying Dutchman has the gas tank in back. Otherwise, everything else is basically the same. Sparta Bromfietsclub of the Netherlands has all the classic Sparta models. The USA models have long bench seats and bigger lights, with brake light and side reflectors. The Netherlands models have solo seats, and a front fender license plate holder.

US Importers/Distributors of Sparta:

Flying Dutchman Ted Van Der Kolk1. Flying Dutchman Moped and Bicycle, Inc was a company made by Ted Van Der Kolk Sr, at 509-511 E Broadway, Glendale CA 91205, one block west of city hall.

Flying Dutchman LetterheadTed Van Der Kolk grew up in the Netherlands. He had a moped shop there, as well as souvenir shops in the Dutch West Indies, before moving to California in 1972. Ted was already selling Sparta mopeds and bicycles in the Netherlands. His shop Flying Dutchman Moped and Bicycle, Inc in Glendale, just north of Los Angeles, was open from 1972 to 1991. John Cochran worked for Ted Van der Kolk for awhile, then later formed is own shop, T. and J. Inc, at 3518 Firestone Blvd, South Gate CA 90280, just south of Los Angeles. Later T and J (Ted and John) became Moped City (John only), a few doors down, in South Gate CA.  All of the Flying Dutchmans in Southern California came from those three shops. Besides teaming up with Van Der Kolk, John Cochran made one of the first moped expansion chamber exhausts, and employed Carlos Rodriquez as main mechanic at Moped City. John Cochran died in 2004. The “Flying Dutchman”, Ted Van Der Kolk, Sr is alive, as of Sep 2013, but in his nineties.

Sparta Cover Parts:

Gas Tank Stickers:  See Accessories/Stickers  Scroll down to #51 and #52 for price/availability.

Sparta Engine Covers:  

Here are the engine covers for Sparta Foxi. They are shiny black fiberglass. They don’t fit too well, and you have to bend the mounting brackets, but here you can see they look OK. There is a gap between the rails and each side cover. $60/pair.   


Sparta Frame Parts:

Sparta Fenders: Front fenders are silver and very rounded, for the 16 x 2.25 tires. Used front fenders from $30 to $50, depending on condition and whether or not it has the braces. Rear fenders are painted the color of the frame. Used good ones in orange, brown, blue for $30 to $40. There are no braces on the rear fender. Foxi GT Sport has chrome fenders and chaingaurd. Myrons does not have any chrome ones, sorry.

Sparta Luggage Racks: Not the extension rack, just the side rails below the seat, used  $30 to $50.

Sparta Rear Shocks: They’re chrome, heavy, and they leak oil when they’re upside down. $15 to $30 each.

Sparta Front Fork Assy: Used but straight. Would probably need painting. $100 to $140.

Fork tubes, swing arms, chain guards, tank chrome covers, and other Sparta items available, but not centerstands.

Sparta Steering Bearing sets:  Brand new steering bearing sets (headsets), shiny in the sealed package. Cups, cones, bearings, nuts. $40

Sparta Speedometer: VDO 60mph, 60mm diameter, black background white numbers N/A. VDO speedo cable $17. VDO speedo driver “11mm Left 16″

Sparta Magnetos:

The Sparta (Sachs 504) magneto is Bosch 0212 010 001. That is the ID number stamped into the flywheel. There are at least four other 80mm Bosch flywheels, 0012 010 002 Kreidler, 0012 008 002 Hercules P1 (Sachs 504), 0212 005 021 Italjet, and 0212 005 022 Sprinter. They all have different timing angles. That means the woodruff key groove is at a different angles to the “bump” on the points cam. So you can swap flywheels but your ignition timing would be way off. More about swapping magnetos will be covered, eventually, in Parts/By Type/Ignition.

Several individually numbered Bosch magneto flywheels for Sparta Foxi are offered for sale below. The focus is on the condition of the surface of the points cam. All of the flywheels are otherwise straight and with a good woodruff key groove. The flywheel rotates counter clockwise, viewed from it’s outer facing side. Two views, 180 degrees apart, of each flywheel are shown below. The “A” side is the upwards ramp that opens the points. This is where the most wear occurs, and where the most smoothness and precision are needed, or else the points rubbing block wears down prematurely. The “B” side shows most of the key groove. Any rust has not been cleaned off yet, but is not a problem, other than rust on the outside surface of the points cam.


Sparta Flywheel 1A Sparta Flywheel 1B

Sparta Flywheel 1: $20 The cam has been cleaned. Rust pits visible at the top of the up ramp. Click to enlarge.




Sparta Flywheel 2A Sparta Flywheel 2BSparta Flywheel 2 $80: The cam has been cleaned. Never mind the orange rust. The cam surface is all good on the outboard side of the points rubbing block lane. But it has some pitting near the top of the up ramp on the inboard side of the “lane”.



Sparta Flywheel 3ASparta Flywheel 3B Sparta Flywheel 3: $10 The cam has been cleaned, but needs extensive sanding and polishing. It’s rusted bad.




Sparta Flywheel 4A

Sparta Flywheel 4BSparta Flywheel 4 $25: The B side has not been wiped with steel wool yet. The A side has rust pits all across the points “lane”. There is one original smooth area, that is dark from a reflection. The whole cam would need to be grinded down by the same amount to preserve it’s shape. This can be done with little high-speed sanding and polishing drums, but it’s difficult and it comes out a little (or a lot) lumpy.


Sparta Flywheel 5A

Sparta Flywheel 5B

Sparta Flywheel 5 $60: It has not been cleaned yet. Looks like it would “clean up” good, with steel wool, then emery cloth(s) and polishing. Side A shows pits in the middle of the plateau. So the whole cam has to be sanded down evenly, then polished smooth.




Sparta Flywheel 6ASparta Flywheel 6BSparta Flywheel 6: $150 It has not been cleaned. You can see it’s a new one.




Sparta Flywheel 7A

Sparta Flywheel 7BSparta Flywheel 7 $60: It has not been wiped with steel wool yet. Side A is rusty, but it does not look that deep. It should be cleaned and inspected then. Side B is fine. The orange areas are just surface “stains”, not pits.



Sparta Flywheel 8ASparta Flywheel 8BSparta Flywheel 8: $130 It has not been cleaned. Yet it’s clean and almost new. Notice side A where the points rub the hardest against the cam, where it’s shiny and dark (a reflection). That is the (opening) up ramp and the start of the plateau. Side B has no signs of wear, meaning that the points don’t rub very hard in that area.

Sparta stators are 4-wire, 3-coil. Top coils are (behind) ignition (blue wire) and (in front) brake light (green wire and green/black wire). Bottom coil is lights (head light, tail light, speedo light, and horn) (yellow wire). The ignition and light coils are grounded internally. The brake light coil has an external ground. Because of the internal ground on the ignition source coil, the points continuity cannot be checked unless the source coil is disconnected. Bosch has provided a condenser with a screw-on nut with detachable eyelet connector wires, for testing the points for continuity. Otherwise, the ohms of the coil is almost the same as the ohms of the points. See Service/Electrical/Wiring Diagrams/Sparta Foxi for more Sparta wiring info.
