Welcome.  All of the illustrations and information below are from the 1980 Cycles Peugeot Spare Parts Catalog 64390.

Both of the French mopeds, Peugeot and Motobecane, have swinging “variator”, and non-swinging “non-variator” engines.  

Peugeot 103: The engine swings on the pivot for the rear suspension. So the exhaust has to be short and compact because it swings with the engine.

On a 103 no-variator model, the engine can swing, but does not, because the front pulley does not vary in size.

On a 103 variator model, the engine swings as the front pulley varies in size. When the bike is stopped or going slow, the front pulley is small and the engine is forward. As the rear wheel speeds up, the front pulley gets bigger and the engine swings back. Above 15 or 20mph the variable pulley is at maximum size and the engine is fully back. 

Peugeot 102: The engine does not swing. It is bolted solid to the frame. So the exhaust can be long. There is no variator on a 102. 

1 or 2 speed: The 103 variator is a CVT (continuously variable transmission) two-speed. The 103 no-variator, and 102 are one-speed. 

Batavus models: Early 1980’s Batavus Mondial and Gran Prix had Peugeot 103 motors.

Tomos Parts

May 24, 2017

Welcome. ManTomos Logoy Tomos parts are in the Parts By Type sections. Below is a summary list of Tomos parts with links to the Parts by Type sections. The parts are described by sizes, specs, and type rather than part numbers and brand names. This system allows for when the same part is used on several different brands. For example, “Tomos A3 rings” are also “Sachs rings” and “Puch rings”. Instead, here we call those rings “38.0 x 2.0 FG”. That is more technical, but more universal and correct.

This Flag 1list is of United States model Tomos mopeds and nopeds. Tomos began in the US in 1976, but their new A3 moped came out in 1974 in Europe. Before that Tomos made Puchs, under license. 2013 was the last year Tomos sold new USA mopeds. That is why the dates below all range from 1974 to 2013.

Engine Names (all are under two horsepower, two speed automatic with pedals, some with kick start):
A3”   was 1974-1991
“Top end” is cast iron cylinder with piston controlled intake, two transfer ports, aluminum head.
A35” was 1992-2006
“Top end” is cast iron cylinder with reed valve intake, bigger fins, aluminum head says TOMOS.
“Bottom end” has wider gears and clutches, bigger roller clutch, more solid cases.
A55” was 2005-2013
“Top end” is all-aluminum cylinder with piston controlled intake, four transfer ports, aluminum head.
“Bottom end” is the same as A35.

2016 Piaggio P.1HH unmanned aircraft

Welcome Vespa mopeds were made in Italy by Piaggio. Vespa is a division of Piaggio, like Chevrolet is a division of General Motors. Sometimes the bikes are called “Vespa” and sometimes they are called “Piaggio”. Both names are correct.

History: Founded by Rinaldo Piaggio in 1884, Piaggio first made railroad locomotives. In WWI and WWII they made military aircraft. They still do make aircraft and many other machines. After WWII they transitioned to civilian necessities, like motor scooters. The first Piaggio Vespa scooters had front suspension made from a light airplane landing gear. The first scooter wheels were aircraft wheels and tires. The stamped sheet metal body-frame was an aircraft design. They were named Vespa, which means “wasp” in Italian, because the two-stroke engine sounded like a wasp. The superior designs made the products light, efficient, affordable, convenient and safe. Soon Vespa became a worldwide motor vehicle manufacturer. By the 1970’s the name Vespa became synonymous with motor-scooter, like Coke is with cola, or Kleenex is with facial tissue. Read more at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piaggio

From about 1968 to 1975 Vespa mopeds were imported to the US and distributed by Western Scooter Distributors, 1599 Custer Ave, San Francisco CA 94124.

From about 1976 to 1985 they were imported and distributed by Vespa of America Corporation, National Headquarters, 355 Valley Dr, Brisbane CA 94005.

1. Vespa Mopeds (US models 1968-1985)

Model Codes: “/B” in the model code means “with Blinkers” (turn signals and battery boxes). “E” means “Elastique” (front suspension), “N” means No front suspension. “V” means “Variatore” (variable speed transmission)

1968-71 Vespa Mopeds:

The beloved Vespa Ciao (pronounced “chow”) was first introduced to America by this ad from 1968. The model shown in this ad looks like a European model, with no brake light, no side reflectors and no electric horn. The ad says it is approved for highway use and comes in five colors. The C9N and C9E had 19 inch rims. The C7N and C7E had 17 inch rims.

1967 Vespa Ciao C9N1

1968 Vespa Ciao C9E1

1967-69 Models

C9N1 Ciao
C9E1 Ciao
C9V1 Ciao

 

 

 

 

1971 Vespa Ciao C7N1

1971 Vespa Ciao C7N1

1972 Vespa Ciao C7E1T

1970-71 Models

C7N1 Ciao Standard
C7E1 Ciao Special

These early US models did not have blinkers, but still had a battery. The battery box covers were dark grey.

 

1972-75 Vespa Mopeds:

1972 Vespa Ciao C7E1T

1974 Ciao C7E1T/B

1974 Ciao C7E1T

1972-75 Models

C7N1T Ciao Standard
C7E1T Ciao Special “SC”
C7E1T/B Ciao Supreme “SC”

 

 

 

New for 1972: The CEV (round) tail light that shines straight back, changed to the CEV 9350 type (oval with flat sides) that also shines to the sides, as required by new 1972 US safety standards for on-road motorcycles.

After 1971 the USA model codes had “T” added to the end. Model codes are the first part of the serial number, stamped into the frame.

Notice the 1972 C7E1T has a small square grey box on the frame directly under the nose of the solo seat. It covers a thick coil spring for the “swinging saddle” frame as they called it. Now look above at the 1971 C7E1. Not there. The mopeds with swinging saddle frames had a big S.C. sticker on the rear fender. One likely meaning is “Sella Confortevole”, Italian for Comfortable Saddle. Just like the earlier models, the seat itself had a spring in it. So the S.C. Ciao had both a seat spring and a frame spring for the rear suspension. With swinging front and rear suspension it was more able to cross continents. 

In the 1972-75 Ciao parts catalog, there are three model types, C7N (model code C7N1T), C7ESC (model code C7E1T) and C7ESC with blinkers (C7E1T/B). These were all the same speed and power, 40 km/h (25 mph).

New for 1974: First documented human crossing of the United States coast to coast on a moped. Richard Hartnett rode a Vespa Ciao 2617 miles on just 16.5 gallons of gas, from Jacksonville FL to San Diego CA, in 11 days. Western Scooter Distributors honored him at a luncheon in San Francisco, in this early ad from Vespa of America Corp.

New for 1976: New US safety standards. Before 1976 there were no US safety standards specifically for mopeds. There were only motorcycle and bicycle safety standards. The brake levers did not need to have ball ends. The front brake on C7N was not a drum brake. But the 1972-75 bikes did already have USA-required brake light and side reflectors. The new US safety standards were like opening the flood gates, as the US became flooded with mopeds from Motobecane, Peugeot, Tomos, Batavus, Puch, Garelli and many more. Piaggio had already been selling mopeds for about eight years.

In the 1976-77 Ciao Bravo parts catalog, there are seven model types, C7N (C7N1T) 30mph, C7ESC (C7E1T) 20mph, C7ESC (C7E1T) 30mph, C7ESC (C7E1T/B) 30mph with blinkers, C7VSC (C7V3T) 30mph, EVL (EEV1T) 30mph, EVL (EEV1T/B) 30mph with blinkers. The 30mph versions actually went 24.9 mph, compliant with “under 25 mph” and “under 30 mph” US state laws. 24.9 is 40 km per hour, the legal limit in 1970’s Italy.

Vespa Mopeds Speed Versions Info

Speed Versions: Other than a small sticker on the sub-frame that says “30”, “25,” or “20” it is not easy to tell what speed it is supposed to go. The lower speed bikes have smaller carbs, ports, exhausts, and lower gearing, and possibly other devices to be compliant with each state’s moped speed limit. This spreadsheet of part numbers and notes, condensed from the various Piaggio parts catalogs, explains the differences.

In the 1978-80 Ciao Bravo amendment 2, and the 1978-80 Grande parts catalog there are these 15 model types, plus blinker versions:
C7N (20, 25, 30mph) serial numbers from C7N1T-3516364
C7ESC (20, 25, 30mph) serial numbers from C7E1T-2351324

EVL-Ciao (20, 25, 30mph) serial numbers from C7V3T-6058864
EVL-Bravo (with plastic tank) serial #’s prior to EEV1T-6045501
048  Grande (20, 25, 30mph) serial numbers from 048-1001

EEV1T Bravo Deluxe
EEV1T/B Bravo Super Deluxe
048 Grande Deluxe
048/B Grande Super Deluxe

New for 1978:
The Grande model was introduced to USA only. It is a two-person heavy duty design. It’s twin long tube gas tanks, which are part of the frame, are too long and thin to allow oil mixing in the bike’s tank. Instead the gas and oil must be pre-mixed in a gas can before adding to the bike’s tank.  

The turn-signals-with-battery versions of Ciao and Bravo have a new electrical wiring and components. Instead of an external ignition ground, where the ignition source coil powers the brake light, they have an internal ignition ground. The following components are different: wiring, brake light switches, tail light, aux. lights source coil. Now the engine never looses spark because of disconnected brake light wires.

The 1978-80 Bravo tail lamp is identical to the 1977 one, except that it does not have a secret brake light resistor inside. The 1978 with internal ignition ground does not need the resistor, but the 1977 with external ignition ground does. If you put a 1977 Bravo tail light on a 1978, the brake light will be dim. If you put a 1978 tail light on a 1977, the brake light will be super bright, and soon burn out causing loss of spark. Weird…

New for 1979:
The new model “Si” was introduced. “Si” means “yes”. It was more modern, with monoshock rear suspension. The Si had 4-ray type “mag” wheels, cast aluminum, made by Piaggio.

After 1979 all Grande models had Razze Incrociate “snowflake” mag wheels, made by Grimeca. The much stronger cast aluminum wheels resisted bending, and never had broken spokes.

New for 1980-81: The Ciao C7E is modernized to the Ciao PX. The 1970’s Domino “chrome” controls become 1980’s Domino black type. The tail light became flat and tucked in under the luggage rack so it is less vulnerable to breakage. The headlight became grey plastic with a built-in switch, the light grey side covers became dark grey. 

The Ciao C7N and C7V are discontinued.

Unlike the Ciao PX, the Grande did not say MX anywhere on it. So the MX suffix became unused and forgotten.

New for 1981:
– Oil injection, on the Grande and Si. No more mixing of 1 part oil and 50 parts gas.

The final years 1983-85:
In an effort to reduce air pollution, in 1983 the US Environmental Protection Agency made it illegal to sell new two-stroke street motorcycles over 50cc. The powerful 350 to 750cc Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki sport motorcycles that dominated US streets in the late 60’s and 70’s, all had to have 4-stroke engines. Mopeds and 50cc street motorcycles were exempt. 
Piaggio chose to abandon the US market, rather that change it’s two-stroke 100-200cc scooter engines to 4-stroke. 

Piaggio left the USA in the mid 1980’s. There were some 1984-85 Piaggio Si mopeds sold then, but no more classic two-stroke Vespa scooters after 1983. By 1983 sales of Vespa mopeds were low, thanks to low gas prices and low-cost mopeds and scooters from Honda and Yamaha. The Japanese scooters like Honda Elite 80 and Elite 125/150 had four-stroke engines, US compliant. By the end of the 1980’s well made Japanese 4-stroke scooters were common on US streets. 

For over 15 years the USA did not have any new Piaggio vehicle sales. Then in the early 2000’s Piaggio returned to the US with completely redesigned modern 4-stroke scooters, but no mopeds.   

 

 

 


2. Parts Catalogs (US models 1968-1985)

The Piaggio parts catalogs were well made, well illustrated printed notebooks. When things changed, instead of making whole new parts books, they made parts book amendments. The amendments only contained the parts that changed.

Jawa Parts

Welcome. Jawa Motors (pronounced ‘YAH-vah’) is a Slovakian producer of motorcycles that also produced mopeds. Founded in 1929 by František Janeček, the company name is a combination of the first letters of the founder’s name and the first two letters of their motorcycle product, the Wanderer.

Povážské Strojárne is the company that made Babetta (Jawa) mopeds. In 1983 they had 3500 employees making mopeds, and 10,000 employees making mainly large ball bearings for cranes and weapons.

ZVL is the parent company, with 64,000 employees in 1983, that produced bearings, weapons, and military aircraft engines, and other machinery products.

Babetta

Babetta was a line of mopeds made in Slovakia (formerly C.S.S.R or Czechoslovakia). Babetta is a girls name from a popular 1960’s Czech song. The domestic models were called Babetta, while most export versions were called Jawa. Before 1986 the production was at Povážské Strojárne (PS) (Povaska machinery company) near the city of Povážské Bystrica in north-central Slovakia. After 1985 production moved to the town of Kolárovó (Gúta in Hungarian), in southern Slovakia near the Hungarian border. As a result of that move, quality issues plagued many of those mid-to-late 1980’s Jawa mopeds. Later in the 1990’s back at Povážské Strojárne, production restarted with the Puch Korado, made by Manet, with a Puch remake engine. The full Jawa Babetta history is told by Edgar Uher, the German importer of Babetta mopeds in the 1990’s, with the help of long time Babetta engineer Jan Sujansky, who lives in Povážské Bystrica and also worked at Kolárovó for many years: http://www.jawamoped.com/html/history.html

The “Babetta” and “Transistor 40” stickers were in use from 1975 to 1978. In 1978, starting with frame number 211000, the model number changed from 207.011 to 207.111. The big red “tranzimo” electronic unit became a small black box and a separate coil. The engine stop rotary switch on the top of the headlight was eliminated. There is no engine stop switch. Instead the right thumb operates the decompression lever, that says “engine stop”.  The white fenders became chrome. New 1978-79 model names were 50C, 50DL, and 50DLX, but the bikes were labeled with only JAWA on the tank sides.

Until now the highest speed version was 25 mi/h (40 km/h). In 1979-80 the 50DL and 50DLX models had Bing 1/12/167 or 1/12/325 (12mm) carburetors, instead of Jikov 2909 (9mm). These were rated to go 30mph. You can tell these from a distance by the grey flat top air box that points forward just above the spark plug. That air box was originally rear-facing, for 1950’s-60’s Sachs 502 series mopeds. See more in Bing Carburetor. Scroll down to “Bing Jawa”.

The Jawa model 210 came out in 1983-84. It featured a redesigned frame and engine, with more torque for faster starts and better hill climbing. For 2 or 3 years, the engines were two-speed. Later years had one speed engines. The one-speed engine came in 20mph (210.120) or 30mph (210.130) versions. The 210.230 two-speed 30mph engine had three automatic clutches, one to start the engine, one to get going from a stop, and one to shift gears. The 30mph “210” versions (210.130 and 210.230) produced 2.1 horsepower (down slightly from 2.3).

In 1985 the production plant was moved from Povážské Bystrica to to Kolárovó, Slovakia. Not all of the equipment and expertise survived the move. There were some quality issues after 1985. There are many 1986-88 one speed models (210.130) but not many two speeds (210.230). So it seems like they made 210.130 models mostly during the first year or two at the new plant.

Until now all Jawa mopeds had pedals because they were motor asisted bicycles. But as Germany dropped the pedal requirments for mofas (25 kmh) in the early 1990’s, other countries and states followed. To satisfy the demand for “mokicks” aka “nopeds”, Jawa introduced the 225 model in 1990-1991.

1995 Jawa Price List

1995 American Jawa Price List with Puch

One of the last dealer price lists of American Jawa had 3 Jawa’s and 1 Puch. The Puch Korado was made in the old Povážské Strojárne (PS) (Povaska machinery building) near the city of Povážské Bystrica in north-central Slovakia. At the same time, 1994-95 Jawa Sport, Supersport, Ultrasport were made in the small agricultural town of Kolárovó. While the Puch Korado was made with Piaggio top notch equipment and modern methods, the last few years of Jawa’s were made using obsolete, worn-out equipment with not enough expertise and concern for quality.

Starting with the fall of socialist economies in 1990, and the privatization of industries, Kolárovó faced increasing costs, and decreasing market demand, as Slovakians were free to purchase from outside the country. In 1993 Czechoslovakia was split in half. Suddenly Kolárovó’s exporter, Motokov, was in Czech Republic, a foreign country, as well as some suppliers. All of these things combined to cause the bitter end of Jawa Babetta mopeds. Read the full history on John Woods awesome website, jawamopeds.com.

 

 

 

 

American JawaJawa USAWelcome. Please visit the sister section Jawa Info first, to identify your Jawa model.

Jawa parts before the 1980’s, were all made by suppliers from Eastern European countries, probably mostly from within CSSR (Czecho-Slovak Socialist Republic). Trade with Western Europe was restricted. So instead of sourcing their components from Germany, Italy, France like other moped makers, they had to get things from Eastern Europe or USSR suppliers or make their own. Yet they did export the finished product to the US and many European countries.    

By 1980 Jawa mopeds, US models, had Domino controls with CEV lights and switches, both made in Italy.

This parts book had many pages from the earlier Babetta 28 book that were not updated. It was for the 206 and earliest 207 with a rigid frame (no swing arm), because it did not include any of the parts specific to the swing arm models, like the rear shocks. But most of the Jawa mopeds first sold in the US starting in 1976, were the 207 with a swing arm frame. So there was confusion when US moped dealers ordered center stands and got the wrong kind. The misleading parts book explains why there are leftover rigid frame new parts.

This late-207 parts manual, dated 1979, is for 1979-83 American Jawa models. But it does not include any of the parts unique to the top tank models, “Supreme 2” and “Supreme 3”. There must have been a supplement for that, sent to dealers in 1981-82.

Puch 2-speed shift cushions decomposed

All of the polyurethane “pucks” or “shift cushions” on Puch 2-speed automatic engines decompose after 20 or 30 years. If you drive one with decomposed or missing cushions, during the shift it can chatter and shake the bike. This can cause the gears to have broken teeth, a disaster. Every old 2-speed should have new pucks before being rode after years of sitting. They are oil-resistant rubber disks about the size of a quarter.

ColumbiaColumbia Sheet Metal Frame with Sachs engine

 

America’s first moped, is also Shaun’s favorite. Hats off to Columbia! This is a well made, long lasting, economical, safe, and fun bike, very strong and sturdy but not heavy. Definitely one of the Top Ten Mopeds of the 1970’s. Can you dig it?

KKM VIN Info

KKM VIN Info

KKM VIN Info: KKM mopeds were made after 1980, and thus were required to have the 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number and other requirements that the Columbia mopeds did not have.
Digit 1 is the Country, 4 = USA 
Digit 2,3 are the Maker, 33 = KKM Enterprises
Digit 4 is the Line, A = Frame A, B = Frame B (tube or sheet, don’t know which)
Digit 5 is the Type, A = two wheel, B = three wheel
Digit 6 is the Engine Maker, S = Sachs, M = Minarelli, L = Solo, R = Morini 
Digit 7 is Engine Model, 2 = Sachs 505 1D, 1 = Sachs 505 1A 
Digit 8 is Hub Type, C = cast 105mm, B = pressed 105mm, A = pressed 90mm

Digit 9 is check digit 
Digit 10 is Model Year, J = 1988, K = 1989, L = 1990

Based on this and the photo of the red 1988, it’s VIN is 433AAS2CxJxxxxxxx, where x is any.

Notes

Sachs 25 and 30mph exhaust headers

Speed Versions – The only difference between a 25mph Columbia with a Sachs 505/1A engine, and a 30mph one, is the exhaust front pipe or header. The 30mph version is 28mm OD, and the 25mph one is 22mm OD.

Speed Versions – The only difference between a 20mph Columbia with a Sachs 505/1A engine, and a 25mph one, is the rear sprocket. The 25mph sprocket is 42 teeth, and the 20mph is 48 teeth.

#420 Rear Sprocket (on sheet metal frame models) is thicker than most moped sprockets. While most are 4.3mm thick, for #415 or 415H chains, the Columbia (sheet metal frame model) one is 5.5mm thick, for a #420 or 420H chain.

The 42T x 45.5 x 5.5 original sprocket can be replaced with a 42T x 41.5 x 4.3 Italian moped one, but the center hole has to be precisely cut 4mm bigger, on a lathe. Then the chain can be a 415 or 415H, like the front sprocket is.

#415 Rear Sprocket (on tube frame models) has a 115mm center hole, bigger than any other moped sprocket. That is because of the oversize 105mm drum brake that goes inside the sprocket. Having the brake and sprocket on the same side allows the opposite side to have a screw-on freewheel sprocket for a pedal chain.

Columbia Brakes Swapped

Columbia brake shoes swapped

Brakes made in USA by Columbia are compatible with Grimeca brakes made in Italy. The cast aluminum Italian-made Grimeca brake shoes on the early 1976-78 sheet-metal-frame Columbias, directly replace the stamped steel American-made brakes on the monotube-frame and late 1978-80 sheet-frame Columbias. The USA made brake plates, cam shafts, lever arms, are also each interchangable with Grimeca items, but the axles are different 12.0 mm on the American type hub, and 12.7 mm (1/2 inch) on the Italian type Grimeca hub.

Gas Valve (sheet frame) is located on the left front, close to the decompression valve and start cable. The original had the hose spigot on the right, heading toward the carburetor. Although right is prefered, the replacement gas valve can have the hose spigot going down or left. Shown above is a “12×1 spigot down” replacement petcock, on a yellow Columbia.

Columbia Wiring Diagram

(some disconnected)

Electrical: Columbia lights are completely separate from the ignition. Never will the engine die when the brakes are applied or when the brake light wires are loose, like on many other mopeds. Each of the lights has it’s own generator wire, so they are independent of each other. The 6V 22W AC yellow wire powers the head light, speedo light and horn, the 6V 10W AC green (and green/black) powers the brake light, and the 6V 5W grey wire powers the tail light. Those three lighting source coils, plus a fourth ignition source coil (perhaps 20 volts but not officially rated), comprise the “Bosch 6V 22-5/10” magneto-generator.

Type 236/237 identified by no coolant fill plug

Solo Type 236/237 Engine
No coolant plug above spark plug

Solo Type 254/255 Engine
Coolant plug above spark plug

Solo Engines are made in Germany by SOLO Kleinmotoren GmbH, Postfach 600152, D 71050 Sindelfingen, Germany. Solo made mostly small agricultural motors, chain saws, sprayers, etc. The name is from the revolutionary backpack portable sprayer for pesticides in 1951. The “Solo” could be used by a single person for the first time, whereas in the past pesticide sprayers required a heavy stationary motor pump and several assistants to handle the long hose. See Odyssey, Solo for more.

Notes:

Clutch Seal: The pressure seal for the clutch side on the 254/255 is not just one seal, like normally. It is two seals, the outer one 26x35x7 seals case-to-clutch, and the inner one 15x21x3 seals clutch-to-shaft. This is the Laura clutch seal/bearing design, similar to Batavus. Instead of being separate in it’s own grease, the clutch needle bearing is bathed in the two stroke oil and gasoline. The benefit is it never needs to be greased. The drawback is the crankcase pressure has another place to possibly leak, both fresh air inwards, and fuel/air mist outwards. 

 

Solo Regular (1-speed) Transmission, no pulley screws

A. has no pulley screws
B. disk clutch with start lever

Odyssey 2-Speed Transmission
A. has 12 pulley screws

Solo 2-speed first speed clutch

B. has a 3-shoe auto clutch

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to identify a 1 or 2 speed: There are two types of belt-drive transmissions, 1 speed and 2 speed. The one-speed (ein-gang) “regular” transmission has a solid rear pulley, with no screws around the edge. The two-speed (zwei-gang) transmission has a rear pulley with planetary gears and a second speed auto clutch inside, with 12 screws around the edge. The presence or absence of pulley screws is the best way to tell a 1-speed from a 2-speed, from a few yards away. If the clutch cover is off, the presence or absence of the manual starting clutch lever is another way to tell. 1-speeds have it but 2-speeds do not.

More info about the Odyssey 2-speed: “Home Alone with Mopeds” has an excellent blog about the Odyssey 40/2-2 two-speed belt drive moped. An all original fresh condition bike is photographed and explained, inside and out. Included are pictures of the planetary gears, the second speed auto clutch, and the “secret” switch that allows backing up without turning the engine over backwards.

Solo 255 with Colombia “belt clutch”.
The sides of the belt are the friction surface.
No clutch shoes, no friction plate or disk.

How the automatic clutch works: The engine is idling and the belt is stationary. The pulley sides are spinning, but the pulley center is not, because it is on a needle bearing. As the engine begins to rev up, the weights #6 fly out from centrifugal force. They force the outer pulley half #8 inward, causing the sides of the belt to rub on the spinning pulley sides. The bike begins to move forward. As the speed increases the weights fly out more and more. When the revs are high enough, the weights are fully out, and the belt is not slipping, or almost not slipping. When the bike slows down, the spring #7 pulls the weights back in, and the slipping process reverses.

How the starter clutch works: A manual start lever on the handlebar pulls a cable, that pulls a start lever #36 against the clutch. It moves a plates #3 and #5 inward. That forces the outer pulley half #8 to rub hard against the belt. Then moving the bike forward, either by pushing or pedaling, causes the engine to turn over, and hopefully start up (if other things are working). When the start lever is released, moving the bike forward has no effect on the engine.

More clutch info: The Colombia “belt clutch” has a needle bearing in the front pulley that allows the belt to be stationary while the engine crankshaft is spinning at idle speeds. Those needle bearings often go out, and bind. Then the bike won’t stay idling unless the rear wheel is allowed to rotate at around 5 mph. The thin needle bearing needs to be greasy, inside, but the belt that goes around it needs to be not greasy.

Another problem is high friction. As explained above, the sides of the belt are the friction surface. The trouble is, the design causes a lot of friction, so you have to push or pedal really hard. The excess friction is from the belt rubbing the pulley sides the wrong way. The belt only moves in a circular motion for half way around, then it moves across the pulley, not with it. Some people are not strong enough to get it started.

Another problem is slippage. The sides of the belt always slip a little, but they slip a lot when greasy. Then you have to pull very hard with your left hand on the start lever. The hard squeeze required eventually leads to the starter pieces wearing out fast. Once that happens, some people end up wrapping a rope around the flywheel to use as a pull starter. De-greasing the belt, and applying sticky spray for squealing belts, should help it to not need such a strong squeeze on the hand lever.

Sears Allstate

Welcome…

Sears Allstate

Sears stores in the 1950’s and 60’s carried a full line of motorcycles. Of course, Sears does not make the products they sell. The Sears Allstate 50cc Mo-Ped was made by Puch. The Sears Allstate 125cc scooter was made by Vespa. The Sears Allstate 250cc motorcycle was made by Puch (nicknamed Puch Twingle). There was also Allstate insurance, automobiles, tires, auto parts and accessories, garage door openers, fire extinguishers, and other products with that name. 

The name Allstate came from a contest held by Sears in 1925. From http://www.searsarchives.com/brands/allstate.htm, “The Allstate brand began in 1925 as part of a national contest to name Sears’ new brand of automobile tires. Public response in the contest was overwhelming. Before it was over, 937,886 people submitted a total of 2,253,746 names. Entries came from every state and in 25 different languages. Hans Simonson of Bismarck, N.D., received a $5,000 cash prize for his winning entry Allstate.”

Some Sears Allstate Mo-Ped (and early Puch or Tomos compatibles) parts can be found at Motor West Motorcycles in Milwaukee Wisconsin USA: http://motorwestmotorcycles.com/.
