Early Pre-USA Models. From 1956 to 1973 Tomos made, under license, mopeds and motorcycles that were exact copies of Puchs, all called Colibri 1,2,3, etc.

In 1973 Tomos introduced their own stamped steel frame, engine, and wheels, the 1973 Automatic 1, a one speed. A two speed version soon followed, the 1973 Automatic 3, and the 1974 Automatic 3K. These went 28mph, made 2.0 horsepower, and weighed 97 lbs. The A3 pedals forward like a bicycle, yet starts the engine by kicking backwards. On a Tomos there is no start or choke cable, just a front brake, a rear brake and a throttle cable. 

 In 1975 Tomos introduced the two speed automatic moped to the US, simply called “Automatic”. The engine was called an “A3″. The European mopeds shown in the ad at right have the same colors as the 1975-76 US models did. They had smaller lights, no brake light, no electric horn, and no side reflectors. Other than the lighting equipment, the rest of the bike is the same.
This information comes from Tomos parts manuals, flyers and photos. Here are all of the Tomos mopeds, US models.

1977-1978 Tomos

To satisfy different US state laws, Tomos made three speed versions, A3SL 20mph, A3GM 25mph, and A3SP 30mph. Fortunately, everything is the same on the three speed versions except the piston and the rear chain sprocket. The 30mph 2hp has a piston 50mm tall, and a 22 tooth rear sprocket. The 25mph 1.5hp has a piston 52mm tall, and a 24 tooth rear sprocket. The 20mph 1.0hp has a piston 55mm tall, and a 26 tooth rear sprocket. The longer pistons, below the wrist pin, restrict the intake port opening. Cut the intake side of the piston bottom skirt, to make the total length 50mm, which is 47mm at the edge. See Pistons 10mm Pin. Then change the rear sprocket to 22 tooth, to go the normal speed of 28 to 30 mph.

In 1977-78, for models with a long seat, Tomos added the word “Sport” to the stickers on the engine side panels. So there were 18 different “1978” style sticker combinations: 3 color versions (blue, green, or red/brown) times 2 seat versions (solo or long) times 3 speed versions (20, 25 or 30mph).

In 1979 the Bullet and Silver Bullet model names were introduced. The stickers changed style and stopped saying Sport, or A3SP, or A3GM, or A3SL. Instead there were two sticker sets, white and black that said “Bullet”, or black and red that said “Silver Bullet”. The engine had either Tomos SP (30mph) or Tomos GM (25mph) sticker on the right side. After 1978 there were no more 20mph models made. 

The Silver Bullet had more features than the Bullet: oil injection, turn signals, mag type wheels, luggage rack, a lift-up seat (to get to the two stroke engine oil tank) and chrome fenders. Oil injection means you don’t have to mix the oil and gasoline.

Before 1979, the long seat Tomos models did not have luggage racks. In 1979 Tomos made the “pommel horse” style seat, which is shorter. It had a zipper on the side leading to a tool compartment. The “pommel horse” was too short for two people, intentionally. But it left some room for a luggage rack. Some 1979-80 Bullets had the 1977-78 two-person seat with no luggage rack. They did not all change to “pommel horse” at once. 

 


1981-1985 Tomos

1986-1991 Tomos

The 1986-91 Tomos “late” A3 engine was black, not natural aluminum. The crank cases were cut wider for modern bearings, 17x40x12 6302, not 17x40x10 L17.

The carb is a Dellorto SHA14/12P, not an Encarwi A83, but still 12mm.

The controls are Domino “1980’s black”, not Magura. The throttle cable is single ended (universal), not double ended and specific.

The wheels are still Grimeca cast aluminum alloy, “5-star” style with sealed bearings, not “snowflake” style with loose balls and cones.
