Pedal and pop moped!

Recommended Posts

I've got an unjustifiable, unexplainable craving for a 'pedal and pop' type moped (Mobylette, Puch Maxi, Honda Camino etc), from the 60s/70s/80s to pooter about on.

 

Anyone on here got one that's not being use and fancy freeing up some space?

Not fussy on either a perfect one or one needing a bit of work...

one needing a bit of work...

£40 of your earth pounds would buy you a mostly all there but rough as a badgers arse 1970's Honda Novio with PC50 engine. And by rough I mean bloody rough.

I can get some photos tomorrow as its behind the NVT 50 in the shed

Sounds interesting, I like a challenge.

Where are you based, and do you know which parts are missing?

Im In Preston (  thats the one in Lancashire) and I'll get you some photos - the important bit ( the engine and ancillaries) is there ist silly bits like levers and grips that are missing oh and its a bit rusty.

Ive got an NVT that I'll be breaking and can donate the handlebars with their ancillaries and seat to the cause - I'll get some photos tonight all being well ( as I said its buried in the shed)

Very much a shed. But the PC50 donkey alone would sell for £60

Still has its number plate.

I've applied for a log book for the NVT but not the Novio.

 

Anyway £40 would buy the Novio off me if you or anyone else want it. The NVT frame and log book I'm keeping but it can be pillaged for bits. 3702df4c4b2c7688152341b713cd10bb.jpge0986fb125bc785fba2c2f91da56d618.jpg7aa2bbd5741adddacb333a0302c0f326.jpg

WOW! My first transport as a spotty* 16 year old was an NVT Moped. Bought brand new by my parents, it was chosen as it had a 2 speed gearbox to cope with the 70 mile round trip everyday, I was not allowed a motorcycle so sports mopeds were out and most importantly it was British*. In the first 6 weeks it spent 2 weeks at the dealer being repaired and the dealer told my father on the last visit (I was working at a supermarket shelf stacking to pay for the petrol to get me to college) that they thought they had sold the wrong bike as it could not cope with the mileage, and if it went wrong again they would take it back and sell us a sports moped. My younger brother was there and was sworn to silence so told me as soon as I got home! Less than a week later, after 4 return trips to college at exactly the speed where the gears changed the gearbox failed and I got a Suzuki A50P sports moped and I was so happy! I have not seen an NVT since until that picture.

 

Not surprisingly, the government website has no MOT info for VBF 857S so it has been off the road for many years, but might still exist in a shed somewhere as it has not been officially scrapped.

That NVT is a T plate. So next year I think before "tax and MOT free!!" They are a bit crap at the best of times.

 

Im going to start dismantling both bikes soon - the Novio will be first for the chop and get sold off as bits, so speak up if anyone wants first dibs as the bike as a whole.

Super rare Solex 6000 flash. Not cheap at £400 but you will win bragging rights as it is shaft drive and has a disc rear brake.attachicon.gifIMG_6209.JPG

Runs and rides and will hopefully get a dating certificate this weekend ready to register it.

Thanks chaps, much appreciated. However I've decided to go for Junkman's Mobylette - it's a sexy beast and it'll fulfill my french mechanical fetish!

Will post an update here when it's collected and back on the road.

A wise choice. Enjoy plodding and the smell of Castrol R

I've been messing with the ex Castro's Bro Atala Califfone today but cant get it to rev past about half throttle.

Carb cleaned thoroughly a few times and fresh fuel/oil mix and no joy.

I ordered a new carb and spark plug that will be here by next weekend so hopefully that sorts it. It's all legally ready to go now, just needs to run nicely.

      OK, maybe not entirely serious, but I clocked one round the corner from my house this morning and they look brilliant. Had been off my radar but small fuel efficient stylish estate and seem to be plenty of cheap ones about, presumably comfy and fun to drive in a french sort of way - what's not to like?
       
      1.4 petrol appeals with cheap tax/insurance/ulez friendly.
       
      I love my 205 but nine times out of ten the CR-V gets used for practicality reasons. One of these looks like being a bit more jolly and efficient, but equally practical...

      First my brother in law had a problem with his Volvo:
       
      http://autoshite.com/topic/34710-2007-volvo-v70-d5-24-automatic-sold-new-owner-updates/?fromsearch=1
       
      Then, earlier this week, someone broke into his house, found keys to his BMW and drove away in this:
       

       
      There’s no way of knowing whether the BMW will ever be found.
       
      BIL now urgently needs a reliable automatic estate car, MoTd and running, for up to £1k and located as close to High Wycombe as possible.
       
      Does anyone know of a suitable steed?

      Bit of an SOS here. I've got a couple of item's I've won on eBay in far flung locations and my work shedule has conspired to make collection difficult. I'd hoped to collect them on some upcoming cross country trip but unfortunately my employer has other ideas....
       
      They have the flexibility to stand up the workforce to work 6 day weeks and have also extended our weekday working hours. They are blaming Brexit and trying to push production volumes as high as they can before the leave date.
       
      I've got two collections outstanding and was wondering if theres anyone local who could collect on my behalf and either post onwards, or sit on them until I'm able to collect. Happy to cover any expenses. Petrol / Post / Beer Money.
       
      The Items are industrial lights, 
       
      The first Item is in Prestatyn - The Seller has said collection from Chester is also a possibility, they are 3 Fluorescent tube lights.
       
       
      The second Items is in Lewisham, SE14 6QD, South london. And is a pair of explosion proof lights [ PLAN IN PLACE ]
       
      If your able to help please pm me.
       
      Cheers
      Joe
