Laura M56 Engine Parts 

Daelim DM50/DP50 Engine Parts





In 1981 Trac International Corporation 2546 NE Expressway, Atlanta GA 30345 envisioned a US-model moped made out of Korean, European and American made parts. The Laura company in Holland had just sold the production rights and equipment-tooling for the M56 engine to Daelim Motor Corporation (DMC) in Korea. DMC produced the Laura M56 (1-speed automatic) remake engine, Kia Motorcycle Company produced the frame and chassis parts, Magura (Germany) made the controls, Bosch (Germany) made the magneto, CEV (Italy) made the lights and electrical. For the “snowflake”mag wheel Eagle model, Grimeca (Italy) made the wheels. The plastic side covers (floorboards) were produced in the USA. That allowed Trac to put an American flag sticker on the bike. Production began in 1982. 

In 1984 Trac added new models made entirely by Daelim. At first they had a kick start Daelim DM50 2-speed automatic engine.

In 1986 Trac added pedal start models with Daelim DP50 1-speed engines. The components were all Korean made except the Domino (Italy) controls. After 1986 the Kia-made models with M56 engines were discontinued.

Trac non-US models

There were no Trac-branded bikes sold outside of the US, but there were many Daelim mopeds and motorcycles sold and used in Korea.

’83-90? Daelim Handy II (Korea model)

’86-90 Trac Olympic (US model)

The Daelim-made US models branded as Trac were already being produced for the Korean market, and perhaps elsewhere, branded as Daelim. At right is a 80’s Daelim Handy II, mostly the same as a US model Trac Liberty. At left is a ’86-90 Trac Olympic, pedal version of Liberty. You can see it’s mostly the same as Daelim Handy.


The Trac Olympic was named after the 1988 summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.



Trac Parts Manuals


1982 Trac Eagle parts manual

Part numbers are Honda format, where the model code is the middle 3 digits.

Format is xxxxx-xxxxx for hardware, and xxxxx-M56-xxxx for other parts.

The M56 model code is printed on some of the actual parts, like cables.



1983 Trac Clipper Eagle Hawk “yellow book” parts manual

Same Daelim part number format. Eagle parts are model code M56.

Parts specific to Hawk and Clipper are model code MT1 and MT2.

Alternate part numbers were in use. They were the yellow book diagram number, dash, and item number. For example part number E2-11 is diagram E2 (Engine 2) item 11, or F12-33 is Frame 12 item 33. This was easy, but became confusing later when the diagrams changed.



1984 Trac Clipper Eagle Hawk parts manual updates

This stack of sheets replaced some of the yellow book pages.

Both text and illustration pages contain corrections.

1985 Trac Clipper Eagle Hawk “blue notebook” parts manual

These sheets were in the back of the 1986 dealer Parts List blue notebook.

They had the yellow book illustrations with new Trac 5-digit part numbers.

So there were 3 sets of part numbers in use, Daelim, diagram, and Trac.
