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.

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.

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

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/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.

1980 Ciao PX

1980 Vespa Si

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.

1982 Grande MX 068/B

 

New for 1981:
– Oil injection, on the Grande and Si. No more mixing of 1 part oil and 50 parts gas.
– I
nternal ignition ground. No more loss of spark if the brake light wires are loose.

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

August 28, 2015

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 has some older pre-US (1970-75) pages.

1977 Jawa Transistor 40

1977 Jawa Babetta
(US model 207.011)

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.

1979 Jawa X30
(US model 207.300)

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. Myrons Mopeds is missing that sheet, which would have shown the top gas tank (that looks like a Puch Magnum), long seat, and other Supreme-only items.

This late-207 parts manual, from jawamoped.com, is the source of the part names or descriptions. The English words are British rather than American English. It says “tyre”, “mudguard”, “sealing” instead of “tire”, “fender”, “gasket”, for example. Some alternate American English descriptions are added to the right in aqua blue. In some places, to save space, the original British English descriptions are removed, and only the MM-made aqua blue descriptions are shown. This manual is the source of the more complete descriptions with millimeter sizes included on hardware items. It also has both old and new part number for most items.

Jawa 207 piston 14mm pin

Jawa 207 piston

Jawa Pistons: Jawa 39mm cylinders, pistons and rings are slightly bigger than others. A Motobecane mid-size “E” cylinder is 38.99, while a Jawa “B” cylinder is 39.02 mm. Jawa pistons have “rounded M” and “circled S” logos stamped on top, the size code “B  Y” (or “1B Y” or “2B Y” etc), and the arrow that points toward the exhaust side. Jawa pistons are classified in the manuals as A, B, or C by tiny (100 microns) size differences. The actual replacements are all “B”. To see the pistons for sale, with prices and more info, click the link in the price column to go to the Pistons section. Scroll down to Pistons with 14mm Pins, at the bottom of the list. To see the rings for sale, click the price link to go to the Rings section. Scroll down to 39mm rings, for standard rings, specifically “39.02 x 2.00 GI”.

Jawa Chain: The Jawa motor chain is not a standard 415 moped chain, although it has the same pitch and width. It has thicker pins, 4.4 instead of 4.1mm. More importantly, it has bigger rollers, 8.4 instead of 7.7mm. Because the Jawa sprockets are made for bigger rollers, they look similar to worn out standard sprockets. The valleys between the teeth are wider and deeper, making the tops of the teeth more pointed. So a 415H moped chain will work OK, but not great, on unworn Jawa sprockets. But if the Jawa sprockets are worn, the chain might skip and jump off.

Jawa brake shoes
L, 2.5 lining for Ø85 drums
(on Jawa spoke wheels)
R, 5.0 lining for Ø90 drums
(on aluminum wheels)

Jawa Spokes: Jawa spokes for 16″ rims are all 160mm long (198mm for 19″ rims). There are two kinds, inner and outer. The outer ones go through the hub holes from inside to outside, and have a longer and sharper bent section. The inner ones go through the hub holes from outside to inside, and have a shorter bent section. Each wheel has 18 inner and 18 outer spokes, alternating, for a total of 36. It was an educated guess which part number was for which type. Inners were 07-4016 and outers were 07-4022, at least in this list. Nowhere else is this difference noted. It does not matter much, since either type of spoke will work, with some minor bending during tensioning/truing. 

Jawa Freewheel

Jawa Brakes: Jawa brake shoes are not like any other western European or Asian brake shoe. Most are for a 85mm drum diameter. Some Jawa mopeds with aluminum “mag” wheels have 90mm drums. For those Jawa made the same brake shoes, but with thicker lining, 5mm instead of 2.5. 

Jawa Left Hand Freewheels made by Velo

Jawa LH 18T Freewheels made by Velo, say what year they were made, here 1976, 77, 78.

Jawa Freewheel: The “free wheeling hub” with sprocket, for the pedal chain is on the left side of the bike. All other US mopeds, except Benelli, and virtually every bicycle, with a freewheel, has a pedal chain on the right side. A right side freewheel screws onto a hub and tightens clockwise, as the bike is pedaled. So the hub has a standard right hand thread. But a left side freewheel needs an opposite thread, so it tightens counter-clockwise, as the bike is pedaled. Jawa specifies the freewheel thread in the Model 28 Parts List. It is M35 x 1.0 L.H. (left hand). So Jawa freewheels and rear hubs are special.

Notice how the back side of a Jawa freewheel, lower right, looks like the front side of a conventional freewheel, top left, except for no removal slots. For many years Shaun mistakenly thought Jawa freewheels were conventional right hand thread ones that were missing the removal tool slots. It is not easy to tell the direction of such a fine thread. Tragically some of those special left hand freewheels got thrown away in the 1990’s along with a few Taiwan bicycle ones that were truly missing the removal slots.

Just a reminder, freewheels tighten by pedalling. No tool is needed to install one. But removal requires a special tool, which comes in different styles and sizes. If the bicycle or moped is pedaled hard, then the freewheel will become very tight and difficult to remove.

Jawa Cables
Each cable was made in long or short versions. Long is for tall hi-rise handlebars like on the 207.311.
US models 1976-81 had Jawa controls. Those had inline brake light switches on the brake cables.
US models 1982-83 had Domino controls. Those had brake light switches on the controls, not the cables.
The 1982-83 top tank had low bars, short cables. The 1981-83 step thru had high bars, long cables.

Jawa Magneto Coils

Jawa Magneto Coils

Jawa 207 magnetos have four source coils (and one pulse coil). Two of them are combined in series to make one. So there are three independent generator outputs, ignition (coil 4b), lighting (coil 7a plus 7b), and horn or brake light (coil 6). The ignition never has anything to do with the lights. The brake light does not make the head light dim at all. So it is like three separate little generators, all in one place. More about Jawa electrical can be found in the Wiring Diagrams gallery. Scroll down to “J” Jawa.

Jawa Ignition Upgrade Kit

Jawa Ignition Upgrade Kit

In 1981 Jawa moped dealers across the US were sent this Service Bulletin #1. It says how to update pre-1978 (model 207.011) ignitions by replacing the old red Tranzimo unit, and the old stator ring with pulse coil, with the newer system, shown at right. The new system had been in use for two years on the 207.111 models, and was proven to be more reliable. Too bad MM does not have any more of those ignition upgrade kits.

Puch 2-speed shift cushions decomposed

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.

Columbia is one of America’s best and oldest bicycle makers.

1913 Pope (Columbia) racer

1913 Pope (Columbia) racer

From the days of true horse power, their bicycle was “an ever saddled horse which eats nothing”. Colombia and Montgomery Ward mopeds are made by Colombia Manufacturing Company, Division of MTD Products Inc, One Cycle Street, Westfield MA 01086

Columbia has been credited with many firsts in the biking industry, since its founding in 1877 by Col. Albert Pope. It has pioneered many improvements to the industry, producing bikes, motorbikes, and furniture for nearly 150 years. Here is the Columbia Manufacturing Inc website, history page. http://www.columbiamfginc.com/columbia_history.html

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?

WELCOME. Columbia parts for sale are found in their various type categories. These are Sachs Motors, Solo Motors, Bing Carburetors, Bosch Magnetos, CEV headlights, Merit switches, ULO tail lights, VDO speedometers, Grimeca wheel parts, brakes, spokes, tires and tubes, Magura controls, chains, sprockets, cables, bearings, seals, engine hardware, pistons, gas valves, gas caps, pedals, pedal cranks, axle parts, seats, exhausts, steering, handlebars, grips, bulbs, forks, fenders, racks, covers, mirrors, etc. Use this table to specify or identify the item for your Columbia model. Then look for it in the Parts by Type menu. Some of the parts category web pages are finished, some are being constructed, and some are still blank. Please email Shaun with a question of a part that you cannot find. 

After days of studying “all” of the Columbia, Mopet and Montgomery Ward parts manuals, service manuals, owners manuals, brochures, photos from the internet, and many actual known parts, this is the result, concentrated and useful information, for you to use. Enjoy!

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
 internal ignition ground

Columbia wires close up

Columbia wires
(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.

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

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.

ColumbiasoloSolo “Colombia” Motor, Type 255

Solo “Odyssey” with Columbia-made clutch and no coolant

Colombia 2240-2250 clutch

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

June 21, 2015

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/.

Welcome. Badger mopeds were made by Tovarna Rog, in the city of Ljubljana, Slovenia, formerly Yugoslavia.

 

 

Info Badger

There are many things the same as Batavus (Holland). 

You have to admire the 120 year history, from http://www.secondchanceproject.eu/wp/?page_id=16

Tovarna Rog in 2000's

Tovarna Rog in 2000’s

The long history of the Rog Factory (Tovarna Rog)

The industrial use of the area and the building started in the year 1871 when the Janesch (Janež) tannery started to operate. After 1900, the tannery was bought by Carl Pollak who renovated and extended the factory building, and expanded the production. The rebuilt factory is the first example of (visible) iron-concrete skeleton construction in Ljubljana. The Pollack factory worked successfully until the economic crisis in the 1930s, when the company was placed under compulsory administration of the Municipal Savings Bank, because it was insolvent. The industrial building was in use during and after the Second World War, when the Rog factory started manufacturing bicycles and typewriting machines on site (1952). The last big renovations of the building and the construction of auxiliary facilities were carried out in 1953 and 1963. The Rog factory operated on location until the early 1990s when the bicycle production was closed.

Part of the story that is not verified, was an earthquake struck the bicycle factory not long after the production of mopeds began, in the mid to late 1970’s. The earthquake destroyed most of the moped making equipment, and it was never replaced. So Rog moped production was brief. That is why Badgers are so rare in the US, because they were only made one year, pretty much. 

The abandoned 7000 square meter Rog factory was revitalized as a arts and cultural center in the 2000’s.

Flandria Bermuda

June 14, 2015

Bermuda mopeds are made in Belgium by Flandria. They are called Flandria in Europe. In 1976-77 they were imported into the USA by Bermuda Bikes, Inc. first at 606 Ocean Ave, Point Pleasant, NJ 08742, then at 301 Locust Av Oakdale, Long Island, NY 11769, and then at 68 Bay Rd Brookhaven NY 11719Many were sold on the island of Bermuda, where they replaced the Motobecanes that ruled there in the 50’s and 60’s.

In 1978-79 Bermuda mopeds were distributed on the west coast by ZSN, at 351 S Raymond Av Fullerton CA 92631. ZSN also distributed Demm mopeds, only 2 miles from Myrons Mopeds.

Mopeds
by Paul Dupre

Here is an article about Bermuda mopeds from the 1977 book “Mopeds” by Paul Dupre.

1952 Flandria

About 150 years ago a Flemish blacksmith named Alexander Claeys, in Zedelgem, Belgium, was busy doing his thing when suddenly he became quite ambitious and founded a company known as A. Claeys Flandria. The family firm repaired, renovated and built a wide range of metal products. In 1896 the company went into the bicycle manufacturing business and after World War II added motorized bicycles to it’s line. The company produced 25,000 mopeds in 1950 – it’s first year of moped production. The plant’s assembly line now has a capacity of 300 motorized bicycles a day. The firm has stayed a family concern – the president is now Mr. Paul Claeys.

In addition to their popularity in Europe, Bermuda mopeds are familiar to tourists to that island paradise and for many years these handsome and economical vehicles have been praised as the best, most leisurely, least exhausting way to see and feel the charm of Bermuda. The moped makes Bermuda’s many scenic hills and dales child’s play to people who couldn’t tackle them on an ordinary pedal bicycle. The cost of renting a moped and buying fuel for it in Bermuda makes this by far the most economical way of seeing the island, as well as the most pleasurable.

The Robert Bosch people have provided a magneto with sufficient generating capacity to meet the needs of the NHTSA-required sealed beam head-light, the stop light, tail light, electric horn, and ignition system on units imported into the USA.

The 49cc engine, made by the Belgian company, Flandria, is a single-cylinder two stroke motor with a cast iron cylinder, chrome alloy piston, and carefully balanced roller bearing crankshaft. The engine is mounted ahead of the pedal crank and provides a very low center of gravity. As with most mopeds, you use the pedals to get the engine started and to give it a little extra help on hills. The engine drives the unit through a dual centrifugal clutch – the inner clutch is connected to the rear wheel and is thus activated by forward motion, while the outer clutch is connected to the engine and is brought into action by engine rpm’s. As you pedal to get started (either by moving along or while the vehicle is still on the stand) the inner clutch pads expand and transfer rotary motion to the outer clutch attached to the engine. With the decompressor open, there is sufficient drag to turn over the engine. Closing the decompressor permits the engine to fire on compression and start up. When the engine is idling, there is not enough centrifugal force being generated to activate the outer clutch so there is no forward movement.

To start off your Bermuda (as with most other mopeds) after pedaling a short distance, you open the handlebar throttle and the increased rpm causes the outer clutch to become engaged. As  you slow down to stop, the outer clutch automatically disengages as wheel revolutions slow down and the engine is back to the idling mode.

Both engine versions have the same top end (piston, cylinder, and head). The design is unique and unusual. The upward fresh intake flows from the crankcase, through the middle of the piston, and then out through short transfer ports and back in above the piston. Most two strokes have long transfer tunnels that go around the sides of the cylinder, like the long handle of a beer mug, to get from below the piston to above it.

But the Hampton and Pembroke have aluminum rims, made in Switzerland by Wienmann. These are the only US-model mopeds with aluminum spoke-type rims. Too bad.
