Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL

Copy of a puch warrior pipe I think? Hits pretty hard from mid to high. I just need a good pipe that will hit until 30 mph and e good lol.

Welded it up myself. Cost me about fifty cents in scrap cromoly. Not including welding gas, wire, bandsaw, drill bits, etc...

Just get the V1 circuit pipe from treats for $100, plug the end, poke a hole in it about an inch from the end cone, add 7" of 1/2" pipe, and you're set.

Btw, without a silencer it registers 76dbm at full revs. Legal noise limit is 83 in California.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL

My rusty, dried out front brake shoes disintegrated today, leaving me with that "oh shit!!!" Feeling and a full Fred Flintstone stop from 50mph.

So I broke out this beautiful NOS vintage drum brake I was saving for a special occasion.

130mm of pure Italian braking pleasure in a 6.5" hub.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL

Very cool. I used a yamaha yg1k wheel I had ordered by mistake. The yg1 had 17" and the yg1k was the enduro version so it came with 16". Has awsome brakes and sealed bearings.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL

V1 polini is the shit. This is making me want to do more work on my safari. It runs well, but an exhaust a bit more than a people's pipe is intriguing

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL

Stretched it a coupla inches in the back. Used some steel stock, cut it to fit in the drop out slot, and welded the crap out of it.

Makes it a bit more stable and not as scrunched lookin'.

Also got some EBR fork legs, put the promo pipe on because it has a silencer, and put a 12t up front. Hitting mid 50's now.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL

Looks good stretched out, at first I was wondering where you lengthened it until I read the description and the second pic.

Laced up some 17" alloys with some big fat spokes.

And made some baby cranks.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL

mid 50's is wild. you should do the next bakers dozen on it and see how it holds up!

I'd love to do a ride like that. But I'm in California, and it's a long drive, then a long ride.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL

Love the baby cranks. I always just cut one off and weld it to the other side so they are both in the down position. Van still kick it over not do lose some cornering but I'm not into that so works fine for me.

Re: Cimatti Gran Prix XL

I use a cut off wheel on an air grinder and carve a cotter pin groove on the opposite side of one end on the shaft. Much easier than cutting and welding a crank, and you can switch it back if you want.

Then with baby cranks, I have enough ground clearance so they're like pegs, high enough so they don't hit in corners.
