Speaking in the other thread of china bikes masquerading as Italians, I've had this thing kicking around for a few years now.
TNG "Venice" CS50QT-9 ('Vino' anyone?)
[CL]1E41QMB Geely (Suzuki TB50 clone) - vertical one-speed, wet clutch, chain drive, oil injection. Can be swapped with horizontal minarelli or GY6 clone (later models came with horizontal minarelli).
Just couldn't let it rot in my friend's back yard with only like 35 miles on it (x-roomies gf won it in a raffle, laid it down, and didn't want anything more to do with it, and so it sat for five years). Got it in trade for helping him out, brought it home, cleaned the carb, and it promptly fired up wanting to live. Stared jumping the hoops to get it titled. Took a closer look and found out it's a weird-ass chain-drive one speed, bummer, it's like the worst of both worlds...but a challenge nonetheless. I mean, I can't sell it as is, right?.. Ditched some unnecessary crumbling rubber bits, the intake snorkle that was falling apart, and the air box, threw on a uni pod I had kicking around. De-restricted the exhaust, and flowed the reed block. Found that the "Mighty" carburetor will accept Dellorto SHA main jets I already had, score, no drilling! Jetted in it has decent take off, does a solid 30+, and actually goes up hills with me on it now (if they're not too steep), though could use some clutch tuning.
It's nice to have around for that extra person that always seems not to have a bike, and a great motivator to get one. Also not that easy to kill. The plastics break easy specially the mounting tabs, and the oil will seep through the pump and flood the case if you leave it sitting too long, so I put an in-line petcock on the oil line, and sometimes I forget to turn it on. You could beat on it (and you pretty much have to) even when it was so lean from the broken intake snorkle it would die if you gave it full throttle from a stop. I really need to get rid of it before I actually strip the plastics and weld on some random chamber etc not just joke about it...and forks, it really needs real forks, the trailing links design makes it suddenly bottom out when you apply the brakes before any actual slowing is done, which provides maximum excitement to first timers!
