made by Pryer(USA) and Puch,Tomos,or BM various
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.
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.
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.
AMS was made by Her Chee Industrial Co., Ltd, 2 Yikung 1st Rd, Yichu Industrial Area, Yichu Hsiang, Chiayi Hsien, Taiwan, ROC. Her Chee began in 1978 making “moped bikes” with their own brand name “AMS” (Adly Moped and Scooter). 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?.
Clinton made in Taiwan by Jui Li Sachs 505/1A
Clinton was imported by Clinton Engines Corporation, Clark & Maple Streets, Maquoketa, Iowa 52060 USA. The Clinton 50-A is the same as General 5 Star ST, Grycner Floozie, AMS Sierra 50, and perhaps more. Clinton was made by by Jui Li Enterprise Co. Ltd, 22 Konan Rd, Jenwu Hsiang, Kaohsiung Hsien, Taiwan, R.O.C.
Condor made in Taiwan by ? engine ?
Condor was imported by G.M.E. Company, Inc, 15671 Industry Lane, Huntington Beach, CA 92649 USA.

Grycner made in Taiwan by Jui Li Sachs 505 foot brake
Grycner is the name of the US importer/distributor, Grycner Motors, Palm Springs, California USA . Grycners were made from 1978 to 1979 by Jui Li Enterprise Co. Ltd, 22 Konan Rd, Jenwu Hsiang, Kaohsiung Hsien, Taiwan, R.O.C. Jui Li only produced mopeds. Grycner Floozie is a step thru with a Sachs 505 engine, foot brake, identical to a General 5-Star ST. Grycner was replaced by General in 1979.
Jui Li made in Taiwan by Jui Li Sachs 505 engine
Jui Li Honey 50, made in 1978 to 1979, is the same as General 5 Star ST, Grycner Floozie, and very similar to AMS Sierra 50. Clinton 50-A.
Moprix made in Taiwan by ?? Tas engine
Moprix was imported by Moprix, 616 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, California 90401 USA. The engine is a Tas BE-48 (Tanaka Kogyo Co. Ltd, Japan). See Sprinter below. Moprix also made an electric moped, way different from the Tas gasoline engine model. See buyers guides p56.
There was a Speed Bird with a Tas engine, identical to the Moprix.
This Taiwan made Moprix is different. It has a Casal M140 1-speed automatic engine, made in Portugal. It looks partially like a Honda PA50.
Besides this “Moprix Casal” there was a “Sprinter Casal”. It was a way different, a re-branded Gemini Commander.
Motobecane made in Taiwan by Paijifa MB 50V copy
This very close copy of a 1979 French-made Motobecane is made by Paijifa Industrial Co. Ltd., 109 Liou Ho 1st Rd, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, ROC. Paijifa made motorcycles and motorscooters.
Oakwood made in Taiwan by Pou Yen Minarelli V1 engine
The 1979 Oakwood Catalina is made by Pou Yen Mechanical Co, 5 Kuochi Rd, Hsinshis Hsiang, Tainan, Taiwan . It is not like any other Taiwan moped. It is rare, but not valuable. It shares the same componentry as other Taiwan mopeds. Of course, the Italian made Minarelli engine is very common, as is the Dellorto SHA carburetor.
no images were found
Speed Bird made in Taiwan by TYM Angel engine
Speed Bird is a trade name for a Taiwan moped made by T.Y.M. Industrial Co. Ltd, 554 Chung Cheng Rd, Yongkang Hsiang, Tainan Hsien, Taiwan, ROC, The Speed Bird BP-48 and BP-48S models have the same TYM (Batavus M48 copy) engine as the Angel AP-48, also wheels, and other things.
There is also a Speed Bird with a Tas BE-48 engine (Tanaka Kogyo Co. Ltd, Japan). The “Tas Speed Bird” is exactly the same as the Moprix. See Moprix above.
Sprinter made in Taiwan by Tsing Hua Tas or Casal engine
Sprinter was imported and distributed by Sprinter Mopeds, 1 Syme Ave, West Orange, New Jersey 07052 USA. In the western US they were distributed by Southern California Sprinter, 2798 Waxwing Cir, Costa mesa California 92626. Sprinter made at least two different models, a “Tas Sprinter” and a “Casal Sprinter” The Tas Sprinter shown below had a Tas (Tanaka Kogyo Co. Ltd, Japan) BE-48 engine. The Casal Sprinter was a re-branded Gemini Commander with a Casal (Portugal) M140 engine. See Gemini above.
made in Taiwan by Tsing Hua Sachs 505
The rear half this frame is the same as the rear half of the Sprinter frame.
made in Taiwan by Wheel King Sachs 505
Wheel King is a trade name for a Taiwan moped. The real maker name is unknown, apparently hidden. Wheel Kings were imported and distributed by T. & J. Moped, Inc, 3518 Firestone Blvd, South Gate, California 90280 USA. Their excellent owners manuals did not say who the manufacturer was. Some were completely blank, where you would put your own brand name on the cover, and some said CUYLER.

Arciero made in Italy by Italtelai Morini MO-1 or Mo-2 engine
Arciero is not in the Wheels of Italy Encyclopedia, but Italtelai is. Italtelai began in 1972, and means “Italian frames”. They made chassis for Arciero, Bianchi, Pacer, Portofino, Snark, and other US export models. They all used Motori Morini Franco engines and Spisni Franzoni forks. 1970′s engines were Morini MO-1 (or MO-2 optionally). 1980′s was Morini M1.
Arciero components: Morini MO-1 or MO-2 engine, Dellorto SHA 14/12 (or 14/9) carburetor, CEV lights and switches, Domino chrome levers, Grimeca hubs and 90mm brakes, Dansi magneto, Huret speedometer with LH driver. Gas cap for “monotrave” is clamp-on pop-up, for step thru is 30mm push-in or 30mm qtr-turn, for top tank is 40mm qtr turn wide wing.
Italvelo is not in the Wheels of Italy Encyclopedia. Italvelo makes Aspes, Italvelo, Bianchi, Snark, Velomec step-thru mopeds.
Aspes components: Minarelli V1 engine, Dellorto SHA 14/12 (30mph) carburetor, CEV lights and switches, Domino chrome levers, Grimeca hubs and brakes, CEV 6932 magneto, CEV or Veglia? speedometer with LH driver. Gas cap is 30mm push-in.
Beta made in Italy by Beta Beta 1-speed engine
Beta was formed in the early 1900′s in Florence Italy, by Guiseppe Bianchi, a famous bicycle racer and entrepreneur. Originally it was called “Societe Guiseppe Bianchi”, and made bicycles. Later in the 1940′s when production of motorcycles began, the company was renamed “Beta”, after Bianchi, Enzo and Tosi, Arrigo, the chief officers at the time. Beta is still making motorcycles, mostly off road trials bikes.
Beta components: 25mph or 17mph engine versions, Dellorto SHA 14/12 (25mph) or SHA14/9 (17mph) carburetor, CEV lights and switches, Domino chrome levers, Domino wrap-around throttle, Grimeca hubs and 90mm brakes, CEV speedometer with LH driver.
made in Italy by Fantic Motor Minarelli V1 or V1-L
See above, Concord is made by Fantic. The Concord Shadow is the same as a Fantic Pepi Sport. The Concord Invader is the same as a Fantic Issimo. American sounding names versus Italian sounding names, helps sell the product.
Fantic components: (1979-later) Minarelli V1-L (late V1) engine 20(1.0hp), 25(1.5hp), 30mph(2.0hp) versions, Dellorto SHA 14/12 (or 14/9) carburetor, CEV “pancake” head light, CEV “diamond” switches, Domino chrome controls and levers, Grimeca aluminum mag wheels and 90mm drum brakes, CEV 6932 magneto, Veglia? speedometer with RH driver, and reflectors.
Model P48 Pettirosso, means “Redbreast”
F.B.M. Fabbrica Bolognese Motocicli, made this older (pre 1970′s) moped engine. It is included here because the name sounds like another Italian make, F.M.B.
F.M.B. Fabbrica Motocicli Bologna Telaimotor, made motorcycle frames, such as the Yankee Peddler (see below).
Fabbrica Motoveicoli S.P.A. (Motor vehicle Factory) was at Via Parini 3, Barzago 22061 (CO) Italy. These are Euro models that lack brake light wires and side reflectors. Frame is a monotrave (mono beam) type, 16 x 2.25″ tires, 106lbs. Engine is due tempi (two stroke) 40 x 39mm, 9:1 comp ratio, CDI ignition, Dellorto SHA 14/12 carb. Gary Uno is monomarcia (one speed). Gary Due is due marce automatiche (two speed automatic), with pedals. Gary Due Special has kick start, turn signals, extras.
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.
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.
These models are shown for information purposes. Myrons does not have parts for these, other than things that were on US model Vespa Grandes. Some of those parts have become scarce.
Italvelo made in Italy by Italvelo Morini MO-1
Italvelo is not in the Wheels of Italy Motorcycle Encyclopedia, perhaps because they made mostly bicycles. Italvelo made Aspes, Bianchi, Snark, Italvelo, Velomec step-thru mopeds. The list grows…
Italvelo components: Morini MO-1 engine, Dellorto SHA 14/12 carburetor, Grimeca hubs, brakes, 11mm axles, CEV lights and switches, PV controls, Huret speedometer with LH driver.

This beautiful Itom Automatic Lusso moped is a “Euro model” because does not have US DOT brake light, side reflectors, bright head light, and electric horn.
Lambretta made in Italy by Innocenti Innocenti 1-spd engine
Maico made in Italy by Bimotor – Moto Bimm Minarelli V1
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.
Maico 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.

Long lasting Herdan (aka Hermy’s) is still in business importing Italian motorcycle parts and accessories. Note that F. Morini is NOT the engine maker, Franco Morini Motori, nor the world famous motorcycle maker, Moto Morini.
The F. Morini Chembol (Lem Pratikal) and the Safari 300MT, Safari Cobra, and Safari MZV have the same frame, fork and fenders. See Lem above.
The F. Morini Chembol Mini (Lem Pizeta) is the same as ?

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 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.

This Morini Engine parts department is planned to follow the layout of the Indian parts department, with pictures on the left, and small groups listed on the right, alongside the picture they are in.
Some Morini clutch components are shown, for information purposes. There are many Morini parts that need to be identified, photographed, priced, and displayed. That might take a few months.
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 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.”
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.
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.

Ted 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.

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