RARE Minarelli 4-spd Motor and Puch Motor on ebay

See Ya Moped Army /

I've listed a relatively rare 4-speed Minarelli Motor (see attached pic), and a '78 Puch Motor on ebay. Both are running motors with great compression and spark. The Minarelli Motor is off of a late '70's Safari Moped.

The link to the Minarelli 4-spd Motor ebay Auction is:

Can a 4 speed motor be attached to any moped without modifying the trans? (Like a Motron, would that work?)

I would think so, but Chris of MWH would be a better person to answer that question if you want to be 100% sure.

Larry, you did have the entire Safari 4-speed bike at one time correct?

Rob, yes, I did have the whole bike at one time. I remember selling the motor to Stales, but I don't recall to who I sold/gave the rest of the bike to.

Re: Safari Commando

Hmmm...

I've just unearthed one w/o a motor.

Re: Safari Commando

damn, i'd love to get that minarelli engine and throw it on something.

:(

Re: Safari Commando

hmm wonder if the 4 speeder I have in the shop is from that bike also rob.

wanna sell it?

Re: Safari Commando

Well if your P4 motor accepts pedals, and you can trace it back to that Stales guy, maybe do do have the motor.

I have one of these as well.

I think it's neat how this post & project began @ X-Mas time 2002 and will end up as a completed bike soon 9 years later.

Re: RARE Minarelli 4-spd Motor and Puch Motor on ebay

It will be such a cool feeling when you finish. I spent 3 years restoring my '67 GTO. I worked on it almost every day after work and all day saturdays and sundays. When I finished it I felt like I won the lottery.

For anyone that cares...not done yet.

Rob,

why dont you swap out the speedo dash for the identical one with the ignition key? Some Safaris came with it stock, and having a key adds another layer of coolness (not that this beauty needs any more).

The attached pic is the one on my NOS V2 Testi. See what I mean?

Re: RARE Minarelli 4-spd Motor and Puch Motor on ebay

Dave changed his speedo to make us think his testi was unused. You have any kids Dave?

Re: RARE Minarelli 4-spd Motor and Puch Motor on ebay

I see your point, but I don't have any. The factory Commando photo shows the flat gray switches on both sides, which I do have. I need to concentrate on the tough stuff nxt, like a motor rebuild, missing side rails and the 2-tone black and white seat.
