Batavus (Laura M48 engine)

Laura M48 magneto (right) and clutch (left) covers are the same.

Laura, Motobecane, Batavus, Badger, Angel, Speed Bird magneto covers all interchange, because they all have a 62 mm inner diameter. Here are some original examples:

1980’s Motobecane engine cover
62mm ID, black only, price $18

1980’s Motobecane black cover
installed on Batavus

Left, this one cover fits and replaces all of those covers above. It is exactly for a early 1980’s Motobecane. But it fits anything that takes a 62mm ID round cover.  It is deep enough for stock mopeds. But it is not deep enough for some Motobecane CDI magnetos, or any that are much taller than stock. It comes with two rubber clips to hold it onto the metal “ears” on the engine case.

Finally these are available after years of drought…

Derbi Center Panels: The center panel choke button is supposed to push the Delorto carburetor choke lever down, and later allow it to release back up after the bike is started and the throttle is momentarily maxed out. But it often does not work properly, and it is finicky. When it sticks, either on or off, you must wiggle or move the center panel to make it click, or else remove the panel and operate the lever directly. The main cause is an incorrect angle of the carburetor. Loosen the clamp and rotate one way or the other. The carb should be vertical, but the finicky panel might require it to be slightly tipped. Because of this difficulty, many Derbi owners have cut holes in, or removed and discarded their center panels. Derbi fixed the problem on the 1986-1989 models by using a choke cable and a right handlebar lever. No more reaching down and fussing. 

Derbi Center Panel Choke Button Parts: There are three different “feet” that press onto the vertical plastic button shaft. Here are shown the correct ones, for reference purposes. Some are for sale but not yet listed. Also the steel tongue at the front is for sale but not shown here.

Sparta

Here are the engine covers for Sparta Foxi (Buddy) or Sparta Flying Dutchman (Lucky). They are shiny black fiberglass, but scratched. They don’t fit too well, and you have to bend the mounting brackets, but here you can see they look OK. But there is a large gap between the rails and each side cover. And the screw holes need to be widened. The aluminum “rails” are required. $60/pair

Vespa Battery Boxes and Covers

Battery boxes were on early 70’s Ciao (US models with brake light), and late 70’s to early 80’s “blinker” models (equipped with turn signals and different switches and equipment).

Vespa battery boxes and covers have two sizes “Ciao” and “Grande”

These side box covers have been scarce since the late 1980’s. They often fall off, and nobody is reproducing them. If you know of a source please tell Shaun by email.

The larger size 227 x 160 mm is on Grande. The smaller size 222 x 158 mm is on Ciao and Bravo. A large cover will fit a small box, but not visa versa.

Steering

May 14, 2015

Bicycles are external, motorcycles are internal.

Welcome. Steering bearings on most bicycles are external type, where the bearings lie outside the frame head tube (which is “not stepped”). Steering bearings on most motorcycles are internal type, where the bearings lie inside the frame head tube (which is “stepped”). All mopeds have the bicycle type steering bearings, except Derbi, which has motorcycle type.

Balls Up or Balls Down is the famous question faced when installing retainer (caged) ball bearings. The lower bearing always faces balls down, but the top bearing is sometimes facing up, and sometimes facing down. When it is installed wrong the cage gets crushed. The answer is: the balls always face the “cone” and not the “cup”, regardless of “up” or “down”. Sometimes the upper frame race is a “cone”, sometimes it is a “cup”.

Any bearing, when pushed together lightly with your fingers, should feel like the balls are rolling. Nothing should feel like it’s scraping or sliding. When you see the balls rolling at half the rotation speed, and the feel is solid and smooth like an ice cube on a smooth table, then the bearing is correct and good. 

Caged Balls or Loose Balls can be interchanged. The cage/retainer is a convenience, that keeps the balls from falling out during installation. If the retainers are the wrong size, or bent, but the balls are correct, the balls can be popped out, and installed using grease to hold them. When the cage is eliminated, almost twice as many balls are required, enough to fill the circle with a half to one ball gap. This has another big benefit on worn out races that have dents where each ball was at. When the number of balls changes, say from 14 to 26, the dents do not line up anymore. So it’s almost like having a new race.

Bicycle headset threads and dimensions, from Sutherlands

Bicycle headset threads and dimensions, from Sutherlands Handbook

Slight Differences in steering threads have frustrated many bicycle and moped mechanics trying to substitute steering parts from one machine to another. At right is a chart of bicycle headset threads and sizes. Basically the whole world uses ISO threads, one inch with 24 threads per inch (25.4 x 1.06), except France (25.0 x 1.00), Austria (26.0 x 1.00), Raleigh (25.4 x 1.02), and motorcycles (24.0 x 1.00). None of these thread sizes interchange. They either won’t screw on, or they will screw on loosely, and later slip around and “strip”. 

Slight Differences in “30mm” frame cups, from 30.0 to 30.2 millimeters, turn out to not matter, ordinarily. Only when the fit is already too loose on a 30.2, or too tight on a 30.0, would it matter.

30.0 replacing 30.2: Take a moped frame that has 30.2 cups and pound one cup out with a hammer and punch, alternating sides. Then take a 30.0 cup and hammer it in. You will only have to strike it about half as hard, because it has a looser press fit. It will hammer out easier.

30.2 replacing 30.0: Take a moped frame that has 30.0 cups and pound one cup out with a hammer and punch, alternating sides. Then take a 30.2 cup and hammer it in. You will have to strike it about twice as hard, because it has a tighter press fit. It will hammer out less easy.

There is much confusion about what is 30mm, the cup outer, or the frame inner. A frame for 30.0 cups can be 29.7 to 29.9 mm inner diameter (id). A frame for 30.2 cups can be 29.9 to 30.1. Some cups are made in between, 30.1 mm. The cups for sale below are classified as “30.0 cups” if they measure 29.9 to 30.15 mm. They are classified as “30.2 cups” if they measure 30.16 to 30.25 mm.

Slight Differences in “32.5mm” frame cups, from 32.5 to 32.7 millimeters, turn out to not matter, ordinarily. They range from 32.5 to 32.7, with most around 32.6.

In ascending order of thread size (fork), then cup size (frame).

After years of ignorance and misunderstanding, moped headset items have been identified, measured, verified, and presented below. With these measurements and specifications, it is possible to find correct replacements by measuring their sizes precisely with a calipers or a micrometer, and then matching it with the pictures and or brand names below, hopefully. These things have to be somewhat precise. If something is too tight it might not go on. If it’s too loose, or mismatched, the bike might be difficult to control, or be unpleasant to ride.

 

24.0 x 1.00 mm thread

 


Left: External Bearings Right: Internal Bearings

Derbi           24.0 x 1.00 (0.94″- 25.4 tpi), internal

Derbi mopeds have internal steering bearings, like motorcycles have. You can see on the Derbi at the right, the bearings are not visible. But on the Sparta Foxi on the left, the steering bearings are visible above and below the frame head tube. The Sparta has external steering bearings, as do all other mopeds.

Japanese motorcycles usually have this 24×1 thread on the top nut, but further down the steering tube steps up to 25×1 or 26×1 or bigger, where the bearings go.

The fork steering tube is a straight 25.4mm all the way down.

The looseness had caused a 25.3 mm wear groove on the tube.

Bicycle, Schwinn 25.4 x 1.06 (1″- 24 tpi), 32.5 cups

In the 50’s – 60’s USA this was a Schwinn-only head set size.In the late 1960’s BMX (bicycle moto cross) began. The first BMX bikes were 20″ kids bikes with off road tires, MX handlebars and seat. The Schwinn Stingray was preferred, because of it’s heavy duty construction and high quality. In the 70’s BMX equipment became Schwinn-compatible, including frames with 32.5 mm headset cups. BMX became very popular, as did the headset. In the 80’s it became the mountain bike (ATB) standard. In the 1990’s bigger 1-1/8″ steering tubes came out on high-end ATB’s, with 34.0 frame cups. Soon 34mm frames became the new ATB standard. Then bigger 1-1/4″ steering tubes and 37mm frames followed. Now this historic headset is almost obsolete.

Grind them down to fit any frame from 32.8 to 34.2 mm.

Colombia Fork Crown Race

American Crown Race: Unlike other fork crowns that have a small step at the base of the steering tube, American type bicycles have a smooth flare. The race #10 only touches at the top of the flare, and at the bottom floor of the fork. You can see in the right photo the crown race is cone shaped inside. All other crown races are cylindrical shaped inside. 

If an American type conical crown race is not available, then a 26.4 mm id standard crown race will substitute (at least it did on this fork), thanks to the bottom having enough straight section that is 26.5 mm outer diameter. It sounds crazy that a 26.4 race will substitute for a 25.5 one. That is why this explanation and pictures are needed here.

Handlebars and Grips

July 14, 2014

Contents:  1. Specifications   2. Aftermarket Moped Handlebars   3. OEM Handlebars 

xxxxxxxxx 4. Other Handlebars   5. Grips


1. Handlebar Specifications

Natural angle: Close your eyes, clench your hands in a fist, relax, and put both arms forward and down a little. That is the natural position of your hands. They form an angle, called θf, viewed from the front, and another angle, called θt, viewed from the top. Handlebars are all close to the average natural position of human hands. 

Positioning: Clamp-on handlebars can rotate in the clamps. During installation the rider chooses the best clamping position, for comfort and control. Most handlebars (except Clubman) are positioned with the rising part going straight up when viewed from the side. A rider with short arms might prefer a more rearward position, while a rider with long arms might want a more forward position. 

Flipping (inverting): Any clamp-on handlebar can be flipped over (inverted). But most will feel wrong and strain the wrists. Of the handlebars shown below, only the Clubman and Drag bars can be flipped over, and still feel right.

Dimensions are width, height, rise, clamp length, control length, pullback.

Dimensions: Six lengths can completely describe a handlebar, without the need for angles. Here the side-view angle θs, and the top-view angle θt, are calculated from the lengths R, H, P, L, W, and C.

tan(θt) = 2*P / (W-C)

sin(θf) = (R-H) / L  

Measuring: When measuring the dimensions, the end points are at the centers of the tubes, not the edges. The handlebar is placed on a flat table. With the rises vertical, the rise and height are measured from the center of the bar, straight down to the table, with 1/2 of the bar width subtracted (-0.4 inch). With the rises horizontal, the pullback is measured similarly. 

Height: Looking from the front, most handlebars, especially low ones, slant down slightly going outward, at an angle θf, because the height is less than the rise. On some handlebars, the height is greater than the rise, and θf is negative.

Pullback: Looking at most motorcycle bars from the top, the bars slant rearward, at an angle θt, because the pullback is greater than zero. When the pullback is zero, θt becomes zero. Cruiser bars are for comfort and have a large pullback, where the bar ends point more towards the back of the bike. Drag bars are for high powered acceleration, and have a small pullback for control and grip.

2D or 3D: When the pullback is zero, the handlebar is 2-dimensional and will lay completely flat. Otherwise, most 4-bend (non-Drag) bars are 3D and do not lay flat on a table. 2D handlebars are simpler to make, but don’t feel “right”, except maybe at one particular position. 3D handlebars are more complicated to make, but will feel “right” in a range of positions.  

Width: Wider handlebars allow better control. Off road bikes have wider bars. Narrow bars have less control, but are more aerodynamic for better fuel economy or higher top speed, and can squeeze through smaller spaces, like in between stopped cars.

Rise: High rise handlebars are taller, and put the hands higher. This can position the rider’s torso in a more upright position, for helping with back pain. Higher bars allow better control when standing up, like when jumping or hitting pot holes. Low rise handlebars put the rider leaning more forward. That reduces wind drag for higher top speed or better fuel efficiency.

Control length: Motorcycle handlebars need about 3 inches more control length than bicycle handlebars. They have thumb-operated levers or buttons, in addition to the finger-operated hand levers. Motorcycles have a twist throttle and a hydraulic brake on the right that takes up space. For motorcycles the minimum control length is roughly 8 inches. For mopeds it is about 6 inches. For bicycles it is about 5 inches. Any handlebar that has extra control length, can be cut shorter, up to the minimum control length, to reduce it’s width. 

Clamp length: The center straight area needs to be at least as long as the clamps. Motorcycles have wider handlebar clamps than mopeds. Here is a table of moped handlebar clamp spacings:

xxxxxxxxx xx inner  outer
Tomos A55 xx 1.7″ xx 3.1″  only this fork has enough inner space for bicycle bars with a 1″ x 1.7″ center bulge
Puch Maxi xx 1.55 xx 3.2
Hercules xxxx 1.2 xxx 2.4
Peugeot 103 x 1.2 xxx 2.3
Cimatti xxxx none xxx 2.4
Motobecane x 1.5 xxx 2.7

Applications: Not all mopeds can accept clamp-on “universal” handlebars. Some mopeds have bolt-on handlebars, where there are plates welded to the bar that bolt to the fork. Some mopeds have stem-mounted handlebars, where there is a long neck that goes inside the fork, held by a wedge bolt.

Thickness: Most modern 7/8 handlebars are  0.875 inch = 22.2 mm.

Vintage metric handlebars, are 0.863 to 0.866 inch = 21.9 to 22.0 mm.

The dual standard can sometimes cause problems.

22.0 controls on 22.2 bars: Wedge type controls, such as Domino, for 22.0 bars cannot fit on 22.2 bars. Wedge type controls do not clamp, but instead press a cone into the bottom of the handlebar. 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s “vintage” Domino controls have a fixed size hole, 22.0 mm, for 21.9 bars.

22.2 controls on 22.0 bars: Original vintage handlebars 22.0, with 1970’s Magura clamp type controls, require a strip of aluminum can under the clamp, to hold solid onto the handlebar. Otherwise the throttle slips around the bar. 1990’s and 2000’s “modern” Domino wedge type controls have a 22.3 mm hole, that works fine on either modern 22.2 or vintage 22.0 bars.

 


2. New Aftermarket Handlebars for Mopeds

Bikemaster

Bikemaster new replacement handlebars for mopeds are made in chrome or powder coated black.

The chrome ones are all 0.869″ = 22.07 mm thick, less than 7/8 inch

The thinner chrome fits into all clamp type, all modern wedge type, and most vintage wedge type controls. Some vintage 22.0 mm controls require sanding of the high places on the 22.07 mm chrome handlebar. Often the bar is to wide at the sides, but not at the top and bottom. It is difficult not to scratch the exposed area.

The black ones are 0.88 to 0.89″ = 22.4 to 22.6 mm, more than 7/8″

The thicker black powder coated bar fits Magura clamp type controls, but can interfere with wedge type controls. With Italian made Domino wedge type controls, the thicker 0.89″ (22.6mm) bar does not fit into the fixed-size hole (modern 22.3 or vintage 22.0 mm).

The black powder coating can be sanded off, to reduce the thickness. But it is difficult to not scratch the exposed area.

These bars are shown inverted, with the rises going upward. In this position the bars are higher, but still at an angle that feels right. Normally they are installed with the rises going down and forward. That position is what racing bikes have, for reduced wind drag.

For mopeds that only need 6″ of control length, each end can be cut 4″, to reduce the width by about 6″, from 28 to 22″.

 

 

 

 


3. OEM Handlebars

Most Original Equipment Manufacturer handlebars are available in a range of conditions. All are straight, unless noted. Some are new, some good used, and some are pitted, peeling or scratched. Some have tiny scuffs from being jostled around in parts bins. They are priced accordingly. Photos of actual choices are available, by email.

xclamp length  —
control length  5.7
xxxx pull back  3.6

These bars are on certain 1978-79 models. The bottom of the handlebar has a chrome steel plate that says Garelli. The chrome handlebar plate bolts to the painted fork top plate. The fork top plate is made of stamped sheet steel. For these bolt-on bars the fork top plate was made too thin, causing most to crack near the edges of the handlebar plate. Garelli soon realized this problem, and stopped making the bars-with-plate design in 1979.

These bars are on most 1980-86 Garelli, US models, and 1978-79 VIP and LTD (mag wheel) deluxe models. For about one year in 1978-79 all three handlebar designs were on Garelli mopeds, handlebar-with-stem, handlebar-with-plate, and clamp-on handlebar. But by 1980, all models had the clamp-on handlebar design, with strengthened fork top plate that did not crack easily.

xclamp length   3.5 with 1″ x 1.7″ center

On most older mopeds the clamps are too close to the 1.7 inch long center bulge. On 2008-13 Tomos, the forks are wider than vintage mopeds forks, and the handlebar clamps are spaced 1.7″, far enough apart . So the Wald 3346 handlebar fits pretty much only modern Tomos mopeds. See the table of moped fork clamp spacings above. For 2001-13 Tomos controls made by Domino or TBS, holes must be drilled into the handlebar, because those controls have posts. But the fresh chrome gives a classic look, and the height is sensible.

5. Grips

Size: Almost all small motorcycle left (L) grips are inside diameter 22mm (7/8″), to fit the bare handlebar. Right (R) grips are ID 25mm (1″) to fit the throttle twist tube. Moped grips are shorter than most motorcycles. The left side doesn’t matter, but the right side does. When the left grip is longer, the lever housing (perch) is moved over to make room. When the right grip is longer, it must hang over the end, or possibly make the throttle stick. Standard motorcycle grips are 115 to 130mm (4½ to 5¼”) long, or more. Vintage moped grips are short, 100 to 115mm (4″ to 4½”). There’s not a big selection in the shorter size.

OEM grips: Original equipment grips, some new and some used, are offered for “correct” restorations, when modern replacement grips are not desired. Many original grips are not for sale, but are shown for reference. OEM grips are usually made by the controls maker. Below are the major moped controls makers.

Domino controls

Domino controls are made in Italy. They are on most Italian mopeds, such as Arciero, Aspes, Baretta/Piccoli, Beta, Bianchi, Cimatti, Concord/Fantic, Demm, Gadabout, Garelli, Malaguti, Motobecane Sebring, Motomarina, Motron, Negrini, Pacer/Italtelai, Snark, late 80’s Tomos, and Vespa/Piaggio. 1970’s Domino controls are silver with chrome (stamped stainless steel) levers. Early 80’s were black, most with integrated diamond shape switches and chrome levers. 1970’s and early 80’s had black ribbed grips 100mm long. Late 70’s and early 80’s had waffle style grips. Early 80’s had basketball texture grips. Mid to late 80’s had all black controls with built-in switches and octagon style grips (also called square because they are shaped like a square with shaved off corners). See Domino 

Magura controls are made in Germany. They were on most non-Italian European mopeds, such as Batavus, Columbia, Hercules/Sachs, JC Penney, Kreidler, Kromag, Kynast, Murray, Peugeot, Puch, Solo/Odyssey, Sparta/Foxi, 70’s to early 80’s Tomos, and Trac. Magura moped grips evolved like Domino. 70’s Magura controls were silver with silver levers (stamped aluminum) with black ribbed grips. Late 70’s to early 80’s controls were black with silver levers, and waffle style grips, early 80’s was block style, or basketball texture. See Magura

Motobecane controls are made in France. They are on 1970’s to early 80’s Motobecane mopeds. The 70’s had silver with chrome levers, 80’s were black with chrome levers. They had built-in (integrated) switches. 70’s grips were grey ribbed 100mm long, 80’s were black ribbed 100mm.

PV controls are made in Italy. They are on some 1970’s Italian mopeds, such as Benelli, Califfo, Cosmo (some), Intramotor Gloria, Moto Guzzi, Testi/Gitane and Velomec. They are silver with black plastic levers. The grips are black ribbed, very close to Domino, but they have a PV logo. The right PV grip is 105mm, but the left one is longer 112mm. See Other controls

Taiwan controls are made in Taiwan. They are on Taiwan mopeds such as General, Lazer, Indian, Angel and others. They are cast aluminum housings and levers, with built-in switches and buttons, made the same as early 70’s “baby” Hondas, such as PC50. The 1970’s ones had black ribbed short grips 100mm long. The ribs are small and have gaps. See Other controls

Shocks

July 14, 2014

Welcome. Shocks are priced and sold by each unless stated.

Price Range: Dark green price is for used in rough condition. Bright green price is for new condition. Some shocks are available in various used states, ranging from “rough” to “like new”. So the dark green is the lower limit, and the bright green is the upper limit, of the price range. Most will be in between the low and the high, and priced accordingly.

N/A means Not Available. 

 

Damping: Most of these rear shocks do not have hydraulic fluid (oil) damping. Since most are pure springs with no damping, they are very bouncy. Certain high quality ones have some damping, and are less bouncy.

Length: The length is from center of hole to center of hole.

Width: Besides length and eyelet sizes, some shocks are limited in width by the frame or body panels. On Motobecane for example, you can’t put wider shocks even with the same length and eyelets (unless some bodywork is cut off).

Stiffness: You can’t tell how strong a spring is, until you squeeze it. Heavier people need heavier springs, and vice versa. 

Travel: Mopeds are for going slow on smooth roads, and so do not need much suspension travel (how far the wheels can move up or down when hitting a big bump). More travel makes the bike taller, but more able to handle bumps. 2 to 4 inches is typical.

<< This Tomos 221032 shock has more travel, more precision, and other features that make it outperform most other moped shocks. It has some damping, more than other moped shocks, but not as much as a true hydraulic shock. It is also adjustable in spring preload (stiffness) for different rider weights. The longer travel makes bumps feel smaller.

4. Quarter-turn 40mm

For quarter-turn gas caps, the named size is the inner diameter of the filler neck it fits into. The actual size of the gas cap is a little less than the named size. That’s why these are called 40mm here, but they are called 38mm elsewhere.

8. Push-in 30mm

The named size of push-in gas caps is the inner diameter of the filler neck, 30mm. The actual size is smaller, 28 or 29 so it can slide in. But the seal lip or rubber ring is bigger 31mm, so it can get squeezed as it pushes in.

9. Push-in 32mm

The push-in gas caps 9a, 9c, 9d, 9f have a thick rubber ring that is made too large, 34-35mm. Right out of the package it is too big to enter a 32mm gas tank filler neck, even with grease and care. The rubber ring must be ground down to reduce the outer diameter to 33mm. This makes the price a few dollars more.

It’s amazing how much that Derbi gas cap shrank, from 32 to 30mm. And how the one from the newer model shrank, but the older model one did not. So a badly shrunken one could fit nicely on a Peugeot! Other soft plastic push-in gas caps with lips, not rubber rings, also shrink, like Peugeot. Only those 35 year old NOS ones that have been kept in a sealed plastic bag are not shrunk.

 Early Garelli Super Sport mopeds had this 42mm screw-on gas cap, while later models had 30mm quarter-turn gas caps. The M42x1.5 external threads on the tank measure 41.5mm. The M42x1,5 internal threads on the cap measure 40.5mm. Many of these shrink with age, unless they are kept in a sealed plastic bag. Then the internal diameter decreases from 40.5 to 40.0 or less, and the cap screws on tightly or only partially.

These gas lids are not shrunk because they were kept in a plastic bag for 40 years. Others that are shrunk are offered at half price. Those were exposed to the air for 40 years.

Almost all moped gas caps are vented. Some have a vent switch. When you transport the bike laying on it’s side, gasoline drips out of the air vent hole in the gas cap. With a vent switch you can close the vent hole during transport or storage, and open it during regular use.

Gas caps come in 4 types. 1. Quarter turn, 2. Push in, 3. Screw on, 4. Pop up. Each type has different sizes.

Quarter turn gas lids on mopeds. L to R, 30, 40, 60mm

30 and 40mm quarter turn “regular wing”, 40mm quarter turn “external wing”. Many other quarter turn wing styles are possible. Two other moped styles are nick named “thin wing” and “wide wing”.

Quarter turn has two “wings” on opposite sides that enter two slots in the gas tank lip. Then when the gas cap is rotated 90 degrees to the right, which is one fourth of a turn, it locks on and seals the outer edge by the spring tension in the wings. The spring has a certain amount of “travel” that allows the lid to work (seal) on a range of gas tank lip thicknesses, or as the rubber or cork gasket gets thin. But sometimes a thicker rubber washer is needed to get the wings to push harder and seal better. In the 30mm size an extra 2mm thick rubber is sold here, but not for 40mm, at this time.

Push in lid gas tanks have a smooth round wall, about as deep as it is wide. The lids are usually black plastic with thin flexible circular ridges that press against the wall. The entrance has a taper for easy operation. In the 1977 USA moped standards, push in gas lids were supposedly required to be quarter turn. Puch, Cimatti, Garelli, and Sachs switched from push-in to quarter-turn but not everyone else did. Again in 2010, quarter turn gas caps are mandated in the USA, this time not for safety reasons, but for environmental ones.

Screw on lid gas tanks have threads. The lid must be screwed on one or more full turns clockwise. The threads on the lid can be either female (internal) or male (external). Most modern screw on lids are more like bottle cap threads, more coarse than machine threads. Also the tops and bottoms of the threads have wide plateaus. Some are at right, not listed.

Pop up gas lids are generally on top tank mopeds and modern motorcycles. Turn the key or push the button and the lid pops open.

Vent Hole: All moped gas caps are “vented”. That means they have a tiny pinhole or channel that lets air get in or out. If the pinhole is blocked, after awhile a suction will develop, the gasoline supply will stop, especially with a full tank. They all have a vent design that prevents gasoline from shooting out, like a wall or a maze, but lets air get through. Some gas caps have a vent switch, “on” or open for riding, “off” or closed for transport and storage. All vented gas lids will leak gas if the tank is too full or leaned over too far.

Shrinkage: Unless they have been kept stored in an air tight bag, many of the vintage moped plastic gas caps shrink after 20 or 40 years. The Peugeot and Colombia black plastic push-in 30mm lids become 29 or 28mm. The 32mm late Derbi black plastic push-in lid becomes 30mm. The Garelli 42mm screw-on black plastic lid becomes 41 or 40. When a push in lid shrinks, it gets loose and falls off. One remedy for that is a “leash” made out of a twist tie. Another remedy is a thin rubber o-ring, but it’s hard to find the correct size. With push-in gas caps, the actual diameter will be slightly more, about 0.5 millimeter, than the tank hole inner diameter, to make a light press fit. So a 30mm lid should be 30.5mm wide, a 40 should be 40.5. With screw on male lids there can be shrinkage and the lid will still function, because it does not seal on the loose threads. But when a female (internal thread) screw-on lid gets smaller, it becomes tight and difficult or impossible to screw on.

←reserve  on↓ off→

This modern replacement valve has 3 positions, ←reserve  on↓ off→. Most original valves were, ↑reserve  off→ on↓ . Original valves with an up position had to be moved away from the bottom of the tank with an extender, to allow the handle to go straight up. Some tanks had a welded-on extender, a short pipe with a 10×1 threaded hole. Some valves had a screw-on extender. On tanks that needed an extender for handle clearance, this modern replacement valve eliminates the need for an extender, by not having an up position.

This valve fits hundreds of mopeds and mini-cycles. It fits any tank with a 10×1 threaded hole, and with nothing below or near the valve that would interfere.

1978 Cimatti City Bike

Cimatti rear tanks have a 10×1 threaded hole, but there is a nearby “wall” that prevents a 10×1 male valve from screwing in, unless the whole gas tank is removed. That requires rear wheel and rear fender removal. To make gas valve installation easy, Cimatti added a screw-in 10-to-12 adaptor piece, and used a 12×1 female type gas valve, with a turnbuckle type nut. Only the nut turns, and the “wall” does not matter. So it is much better to reuse the 10-to-12 adaptor, and use a 12×1 spigot right valve, see below.

1978 Malaguti Pilot

These “spigot left” valves substitute for a “spigot back” type in many cases. The fuel hose goes left instead of back. Like all screw-on valves, it can be aimed at any angle, so “left” can become “back”.

 

 

 

 

 

These valves fit 1970’s sheet-metal-frame Motobecanes, where there is a tight space.

Like the other 10×1 male valves, the whole valve must turn around and around, to screw on. But the long shaft would usually hit something, that would prevent the valve from screwing on. The original valves had a detachable shaft, held on by a clip. So the valve could be installed or removed without the shaft.

This replacement valve does not have a easily detachable shaft. But the shaft can be removed by loosening the shaft nut. To install the valve, remove the shaft, then screw on the valve, tighten only to a little more than “finger tight”, aim it to face outward or whatever direction is best, then replace the shaft.

This valve fits early Tomos top tanks 10×1 female threads. The round knob goes through a one inch hole in the right plastic panel below the tank. After 1993 the top tanks had 12×1 male threads.

Here it is shown without the metal cup and rubber ring, but those things are included. The 15mm length extension includes the cup and rubber.

 On Peugeot 102 and others there is a wall that prevents the valve from being screwed in, unless there is an extender piece between the valve and the tank. You try not to loose the extender, because it costs more than the valve.

This 10×1 spigot down valve has a 26mm extender that positions the valve lower, away from the bottom of the tank. The 26mm extender includes a longer reserve tube.

When an extender is added to a valve, the reserve tube needs to be longer. When the reserve tube is too short, there is little or no reserve. Here the original reserve tube has been replaced with a longer one, 60mm from the valve base instead of 35mm.

Any of the other 10×1 male valves can have a 15, 20, or 26mm extender added. Some already have long reserve tubes.

Because the whole valve must be screwed in to install it, the handle knob detaches with a clip.

The original valve on a Columbia Commuter (tube frame) was a vertical mount valve, mounted in the sideways position. So the valve faces up, instead of sideways. That is not bad, but the poor handle gets kicked easily since it is right where you step through the frame at.

The original valve had a reserve tube that curved upward, like on a Puch side mount. The replacement valve has a short straight reserve tube. Sideways installation disables the reserve feature. Optionally, a longer curved soft aluminum reserve tube is available. See below.

There is a finger width long slot in the right cover, for one-finger access. Many have their gas valve access slots widened, like the blue 1978 above.

Although the spigot direction is wrong, this still works fine on a Vespa Grande. The gas has to go uphill a little at first, but the gas hose stays below the bottom of the gas tank (when routed under the throttle cable like shown below). So it will flow gasoline all the way to empty.

While the Tomos Targa valve works on a Vespa Si, the opposite is not true. The Tomos engine is too close, unless the cover is left off and the valve is rotated.

This valve shaft sticks out of a small hole in the plastic side cover. The handle knob must be pryed off (with two screwdrivers on opposite sides), to get the shaft through the hole in the plastic side cover. The valve must be aimed just right. It might take 2 or 3 guesses to get the shaft aimed at the hole. Then the plastic cover is replaced, and then the handle knob is pressed back onto the shaft.

The original valves had poorly made cast nuts. The nuts were too big and also weak. When fully tightened they would strip. Some have good nuts, but after 35 years the rubber seal disk inside is brittle and deformed. All of the mopeds listed that came with a spigot-back gas valve, can take a less expensive spigot down or spigot left valve.

This motorcycle valve has a 7.7 mm spigot, for 1/4″ (6.3mm) fuel hose.
