1. Parts Catalogs (US models 1968-1985)

The Piaggio parts catalogs were well made, well illustrated printed notebooks. When things changed, instead of making whole new parts books, they made parts book amendments. The amendments only contained the parts that changed.

1. Piaggio

Welcome Vespa scooters and mopeds were made in Italy by Piaggio. Vespa is a division of Piaggio, like Chevrolet is a division of General Motors. In the USA the bikes were branded as “Vespa” but in most countries they were called “Piaggio”. The brand name Vespa was used up to the 1980’s.   

Scooters and Mopeds: Piaggio made scooters from 1947 to present, and mopeds from 1967-2006. Only mopeds are covered here. Mopeds have a front engine and large thin tires. Scooters have a rear engine and small wide tires. 

2016 Piaggio P.1HH unmanned aircraft

History: Founded by Rinaldo Piaggio in 1884, Piaggio first made railroad locomotives. In WWI and WWII they made military aircraft. They still do make aircraft and many other machines. After WWII they transitioned to civilian necessities, like motor scooters. The first Piaggio Vespa scooters had front suspension made from a light airplane landing gear. The first scooter wheels were aircraft wheels and tires. The stamped sheet metal body-frame was an aircraft design. They were named Vespa, which means “wasp” in Italian, because the two-stroke engine sounded like a wasp. The superior designs made the products light, efficient, affordable, convenient and safe. Soon Vespa became a worldwide motor vehicle manufacturer. By the 1970’s the name Vespa became synonymous with motor-scooter, like Coke is with cola, or Kleenex is with facial tissue.

From about 1968 to 1975 Vespa mopeds were imported to the US and distributed by Western Scooter Distributors, 1599 Custer St, San Francisco CA 94124.

From about 1976 to 1985 they were imported and distributed by Vespa of America Corporation, National Headquarters, 355 Valley Dr, Brisbane CA 94005.

2. Piaggio-Vespa (US mopeds 1968-1985)

Model Codes: “/B” in the model code means “with Blinkers” (turn signals and battery boxes). “E” means “Elastique” (front suspension), “N” means No front suspension. “V” means “Variatore” (variable speed transmission)

1968-71 Vespa Mopeds:

The beloved Vespa Ciao (pronounced “chow”) was first introduced to America by this ad from 1968. The model shown in this ad looks like a European model, with no brake light, no side reflectors and no electric horn. The ad says it is approved for highway use and comes in five colors. The C9N and C9E had 19 inch rims. The C7N and C7E had 17 inch rims.

1971 Vespa Ciao C7N1

1972 Vespa Ciao C7E1T

1970-71 Models

C7N1 Ciao Standard
C7E1 Ciao Special

These early US models did not have blinkers, but still had a battery. The battery box covers were dark grey.

 

1972-75 Vespa Mopeds:

1972 Vespa Ciao C7E1T

1974 Ciao C7E1T/B

1974 Ciao C7E1T

1972-75 Models

C7N1T Ciao Standard
C7E1T Ciao Special “SC”
C7E1T/B Ciao Supreme “SC”

 

 

 

New for 1972: The CEV (round) tail light that shines straight back, changed to the CEV 9350 type (oval with flat sides) that also shines to the sides, as required by new 1972 US safety standards for on-road motorcycles.

After 1971 the USA model codes had “T” added to the end. Model codes are the first part of the serial number, stamped into the frame.

Notice the 1972 C7E1T has a small square grey box on the frame directly under the nose of the solo seat. It covers a thick coil spring for the “swinging saddle” frame as they called it. Now look above at the 1971 C7E1. Not there. The mopeds with swinging saddle frames had a big SC sticker on the rear fender, than means “Super Confort”, Italian for Super Comfort. Just like the earlier models, the seat itself had a spring in it. So the SC Ciao had both a seat spring and a frame spring for the rear suspension. With swinging front and rear suspension it was more able to cross continents. 

In the 1972-75 Ciao parts catalog, there are three model types, C7N (model code C7N1T), C7ESC (model code C7E1T) and C7ESC with blinkers (C7E1T/B). These were all the same speed and power, 40 km/h (25 mph).

New for 1974: First documented human crossing of the United States coast to coast on a moped. Richard Hartnett rode a Vespa Ciao 2617 miles on just 16.5 gallons of gas, from Jacksonville FL to San Diego CA, in 11 days. Western Scooter Distributors honored him at a luncheon in San Francisco, in this early ad from Vespa of America Corp.

New for 1976: New US safety standards. Before 1976 there were no US safety standards specifically for mopeds. There were only motorcycle and bicycle safety standards. The brake levers did not need to have ball ends. The front brake on C7N was not a drum brake. But the 1972-75 bikes did already have USA-required brake light and side reflectors. The new US safety standards were like opening the flood gates, as the US became flooded with mopeds from Motobecane, Peugeot, Tomos, Batavus, Puch, Garelli and many more. Piaggio had already been selling mopeds for about eight years.

In the 1976-77 Ciao Bravo parts catalog, there are seven model types, C7N (C7N1T) 30mph, C7ESC (C7E1T) 20mph, C7ESC (C7E1T) 30mph, C7ESC (C7E1T/B) 30mph with blinkers, C7VSC (C7V3T) 30mph, EVL (EEV1T) 30mph, EVL (EEV1T/B) 30mph with blinkers. The 30mph versions actually went 24.9 mph, compliant with “under 25 mph” and “under 30 mph” US state laws. 24.9 is 40 km per hour, the legal limit in 1970’s Italy.

Vespa Mopeds Speed Versions Info

Speed Versions: Other than a small sticker on the sub-frame that says “30”, “25,” or “20” it is not easy to tell what speed it is supposed to go. The lower speed bikes have smaller carbs, ports, exhausts, and lower gearing, and possibly other devices to be compliant with each state’s moped speed limit. This spreadsheet of part numbers and notes, condensed from the various Piaggio parts catalogs, explains the differences.

In the 1978-80 Ciao Bravo amendment 2, and the 1978-80 Grande parts catalog there are these 15 model types, plus blinker versions:
C7N (20, 25, 30mph) serial numbers from C7N1T-3516364
C7ESC (20, 25, 30mph) serial numbers from C7E1T-2351324

EVL-Ciao (20, 25, 30mph) serial numbers from C7V3T-6058864
EVL-Bravo (with plastic tank) serial #’s prior to EEV1T-6045501
048  Grande (20, 25, 30mph) serial numbers from 048-1001

C7E1T/B Ciao Supreme “SC”
C7V3T Ciao Super “SC”
EEV1T Bravo Deluxe
EEV1T/B Bravo Super Deluxe
048 Grande Deluxe
048/B Grande Super Deluxe

New for 1978:
The Grande model was introduced to USA only. It is a two-person heavy duty design. It’s twin long tube gas tanks, which are part of the frame, are too long and thin to allow oil mixing in the bike’s tank. Instead the gas and oil must be pre-mixed in a gas can before adding to the bike’s tank.  

The turn-signals-with-battery versions of Ciao and Bravo have a new electrical wiring and components. Instead of an external ignition ground, where the ignition source coil powers the brake light, they have an internal ignition ground. The following components are different: wiring, brake light switches, tail light, aux. lights source coil. Now the engine never looses spark because of disconnected brake light wires.

The 1978-80 Bravo tail lamp is identical to the 1977 one, except that it does not have a secret brake light resistor inside. The 1978 with internal ignition ground does not need the resistor, but the 1977 with external ignition ground does. If you put a 1977 Bravo tail light on a 1978, the brake light will be dim. If you put a 1978 tail light on a 1977, the brake light will be super bright, and soon burn out causing loss of spark. Weird… 

1979 Vespa Grande 048

048 Grande
048/B Grande
048 Grande (with mag wheels)
048/B Grande (with mags)
SIV1T Si

New for 1979:
The new model “Si” was introduced. “Si” means “yes”. It was more modern, with monoshock rear suspension. The Si had 4-ray type “mag” wheels, cast aluminum, made by Piaggio.

After 1979 all Grande models had Razze Incrociate “snowflake” mag wheels, made by Grimeca. The much stronger cast aluminum wheels resisted bending, and never had broken spokes.

1982 Vespa Ciao PX

1980 Ciao PX

1980 Vespa Si

New for 1980-81: The Ciao C7E is modernized to the Ciao PX. The 1970’s Domino “chrome” controls become 1980’s Domino black type. The tail light became flat and tucked in under the luggage rack so it is less vulnerable to breakage. The headlight became grey plastic with a built-in switch, the light grey side covers became dark grey. 

The Ciao C7N and C7V are discontinued.

068 Grande MX (oil injection)

Unlike the Ciao PX, the Grande did not say MX anywhere on it. So the MX suffix became unused and forgotten.

 

1982 Grande MX 068/B

 

New for 1981:
– Oil injection, on the Grande and Si. No more mixing of 1 part oil and 50 parts gas.
– I
nternal ignition ground. No more loss of spark if the brake light wires are loose.

The final years 1983-85:
In an effort to reduce air pollution, in 1983 the US Environmental Protection Agency made it illegal to sell new two-stroke street motorcycles over 50cc. The powerful 350 to 750cc Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki sport motorcycles that dominated US streets in the late 60’s and 70’s, all had to have 4-stroke engines. Mopeds and 50cc street motorcycles were exempt. 
Piaggio chose to abandon the US market, rather that change it’s two-stroke 100-200cc scooter engines to 4-stroke. 

Piaggio left the USA in the mid 1980’s. There were some 1984-85 Piaggio Si mopeds sold then, but no more classic two-stroke Vespa scooters after 1983. By 1983 sales of Vespa mopeds were low, thanks to low gas prices and low-cost mopeds and scooters from Honda and Yamaha. The Japanese scooters like Honda Elite 80 and Elite 125/150 had four-stroke engines, US compliant. By the end of the 1980’s well made Japanese 4-stroke scooters were common on US streets. 

For over 15 years the USA did not have any new Piaggio vehicle sales. Then in the early 2000’s Piaggio returned to the US with completely redesigned modern 4-stroke scooters, but no mopeds.

1972 Piaggio Ciao R C7E1T

1970-1972 CIAO R (Renovated)

The model “R” stands for Rinnovato (Renovated). The headlight remains rectangular (except very first models), gray in color, but mounted a little higher. The gas tank is not stainless steel. No steering lock. The 2.00-17 (or 2.00-19) tires and muffler are black. The horn button is placed under the throttle control. The front mudguard is shortened and the rods screwed to the suspension screws. The side covers are gray, identical to those of the first series Ciao, but from frame 1.187.290 – on, they are ivory, with a ivory headlight. The hexagonal Piaggio emblem that was on the handlebars is moved to where the fork lock was, on the front of the frame. The handlebar is V-shaped. The decompressor lever is shortened. The left bearing flange of the rear wheel is modified to facilitate the change of the inner tube and mounted smooth channel rims. Both wheels still have 32 spokes. An “R” sticker is below the rear light.

1980 Piaggio Ciao P C7E2T

1979-1987 CIAO P, PV

In 1979 the Piaggio Ciao benefits from a profound update. The front suspension arms are longer for more travel. The Domino 1970’s gray controls with chrome steel levers change to Domino 1980’s black with black plastic levers. The headlight, footrest, side panels and tail light change to a modern design made of gray plastic. The tail light moves from the fender to the back of the luggage rack. The saddle becomes completely smooth, with two longitudinal ribs. Classic bicycle pedals give way to black rubber blocks with Piaggio coat of arms printed in relief. The muffler also changes shape: the diameter is major and its ends are flat instead rounded. The Ciao P (rigid seat) and the Ciao PV (rigid seat and variator) do not have a steering lock.

1920 Garelli

1. Garelli

Italy Flag

Garelli began in 1913 when Italian engineer Adalbarto Garelli built his first motorcycle, a 350cc two-stroke. The company started in 1919, and by 1923 Garelli established a reputation of quality and reliability by setting 76 world records, mostly for endurance. After WWII production of military equipment shifted to civilian necessities. In 1947 Garelli produced the Mosquito, a 38cc bicycle engine. Later Mosquito engines were 49cc, or complete mopeds.

Agrati began in 1900 as A. Agrati i Figli (Antonio Agrati and Sons) producing electric motors and later bicycles. In the late 1950’s Agrati produced the successful Capri line of motor scooters and was also Italy’s leading producer of bicycle parts. In 1961 Garelli was acquired by the family owned Agrati company and became Agrati Garelli.  The name “Agrati Garelli” or “Ag Gar” was used in the 1960’s and 1970’s but was shortened to just “Garelli” in the 1980’s.

FrGarelli Logoom cybermotorcycle.com  In 1961 the Agrati Garelli Group was established and production commenced in the two industrial complexes in Sesto San Giovanni, home of Garelli, and in Monticello where Agrati was based. The two businesses operated independently but with one Directorate General coordinating production which then flowed into a single distribution network with a combined sales organization. Thus began a consistent production of both basic and sports mopeds, and of motor cars, outboard engines and go-carts. Output is substantial with, for example, production of the Eureka Flex ciclomotore (moped) from 1972 to 1977 achieving some 500,000 units. In 1982, the introduction of the TSR model 125 began the production of lightweight motorcycles.

Agrati Garelli began to establish a sporting image, and after a series of records achieved in 1963 in the 50cc category with machines prepared by the engineer William Soncini, Garelli entered the eighties by taking part in the World Championship in the 50cc, 125cc and 250cc classes. The single-cylinder 50 cc has a disc valve and delivers 13 bhp at 14,800 rpm. Riders for Garelli included Eugenio Lazzarini, Angel Nieto (of Derbi fame), Fauso Gresini, Riccardo Tormo, Edward Granata, Ezio Gianola, Maurizio Vitali, Luca Cadalora, Bruno Casanova, Miguel Reyes, Emilio Cuppini, Paolo Casoli, and Domenico Brigaglia.

Fantic Motor was founded in 1968 by Dr. Mario Agrati of Agrati Garelli, and Henry Keppel-Hesselink, who was responsible for foreign sales at Agrati Garelli. Fantic produced a line of mini-bikes, go-karts and mini-enduro bikes, branded as Broncco for the American youth market. From cybermotorcycle.com In 1969 the Lombard factory launched the famous 50cc Caballero which immediately met success with younger riders due to its technical superiority and competitive pricing. In 1973 the first 125 appeared, powered by a Minarelli engine built specifically for Fantic. Late 1970’s and early 80’s Fantic mopeds also had Minarelli engines built specifically for Fantic. 

Broncco minibikes and enduro bikes were made by Fantic Motor or Agrati Garelli from 1968 to 1972 and sold by Engine Specialties, in Cornwells Heights, Pennsylvania. The 1969 to 1970 TC-4, TS-4 and BC-4 models were made by Agrati Garelli and had Garelli engines. All other Broncco models were made by Fantic Motor. See Fantic. The 1969 Broncco logo is the same as Fantic, suggesting it’s hidden identity.

So Agrati, Garelli, Fantic and Broncco were connected in the late 1960’s and 70’s. Sources are Wheels of Italy, Wikipedia-Garelli, and Fantic Motor Heritage.

american-garelliAfter the gas shortage “energy crisis” of 1974, In 1975 the US congress and DOT created new laws for mopeds. This welcomed European makers and American importers to begin selling mopeds in the gasoline-starved USA.

American Garelli East Ltd, 1211 Gadsden St, Columbia SC 29201 was the importer from 1976 to 1978.

agrati-garelli-corporation-of-america

Agrati-Garelli Corporation of America, at 1800 Edmond Rd, Cayce SC 29033, and then at North Frontage Rd, I-20, Hwy 6, Lexington SC 29072, was the importer from 1978 to 1986.

In the mid 1980’s the moped boom was over thanks to new drivers license laws or restrictions, cheap gas, and competition from Japanese makers. Most European moped makers pulled out of the US in the late 1980’s.

Fabbrica Motoveicoli was an Italian government subsidized group of struggling motor vehicle companies. The last models produced by Garelli/Fantic Motor/Fabbrica Motoveicoli were the Gary Uno and Gary Due, before the bankruptcy in 1992.

Mosquito 307 engine

EU 0cc   hp  engine gears  rims   1947-49
EU 038 0.8 307 000  1V none   Mosquito 38 motor kit

The first Mosquito was a friction-drive compact motor kit that attached to most bicycles. 

From Stingers by Mark DanielsUnveiled at the Geneva Show in March 1947, from the house of Adalberto Garelli, with Carlo Alberto Gilardi as Chief Engineer to the project, the tiny type 307 clip-on motor was another instant success.  Less than a mere 4 inches wide and weighing in at barely 4 kilogrammes, its 35 millimetre bore × 40 millimetre long-stroke specification of 5.5:1 compression ratio gave 0.8bhp @ 4,200rpm for 20mph, and the Dell’orto carburettor delivered around 200mpg economy!

News of the Mosquito motor rippled across Europe, as journalists, impressed by the design and novelty of such a tiny motor, widely reported the engine in the motor cycling press.  A small column in The Motor Cycle dated 8 January 1948 would seem to be among the first introductions to enthuse over Garelli’s ingenuity to its British readership, while the Sterling Engineering Company of Dagenham entered speculative negotiations to try to make and sell Mosquito engines under licence onto the UK market, but their project was not secured.

Unprecedented continental uptake of the engine, however, quickly found Garelli appreciating their position was failing to keep up with demand, particularly from France, where the Mosquito had become popularly adopted.

Solution to the supply problem came about by Garelli granting a manufacturing license to Etablissements Chapuis Frères, a long established maker of bicycles, at 24 Avenue de Neuilly, Neuilly-sur-Seine.  To protect Garelli’s name and reputation, the license came with demanding conditions requiring Chapuis lay out an entirely new factory to build the Mosquito engine, and expecting both high tooling standards, and machining facilities.

By 1950, Chapuis Frères had founded the plant, and selling not only their licence-built Mosquito engine attachment kits with Gurtner manufactured carburettors license-built to the original Dell’orto design, but also two complete cyclomoteur frame assemblies of their own construction, and sold under the “Presto” brand as ‘Confort’ and ‘Sport’ models.

Le Salon de Paris exhibition in 1951 found the Chapuis stand displaying another new variant, this time posted as BMG: Bici Mosquito Garelli.  This machine introduced a new 315 model Mosquito motor, with increased 40 millimetre bore × reduced 39 millimetre stroke now resulting in a 49cc undersquare specification for a higher 1bhp rating at the same revs.

From Stingers by Mark Daniels: For 1953, Garelli announced yet another Mosquito engine, as the version 38-B cyclemotor.

This employed the preceding BMG engine, but omitted the internal reduction gear, so the drive roller located directly on the crank journal.  Despite a compression ratio posted at just 5.5:1, the motor still quoted the same 1bhp, but re-rated at a lowly 2,800rpm – the buzzing Mosquito was now set to be droning along instead!

While further ‘Centrimatic’ versions of the 38-B now equipped engines with centrifugal clutching functions, one might have thought the old 307 series ‘reduction’ motor should probably have become obsolete by introduction of the 38-B direct-drive motors in 1953, but it didn’t!  The original 38.5cc motor remained in production, side by side with the later B-series models.

After 1953 the BMG was called Velo Mosquito. The rims got smaller, from 600 mm (23.6 inch) to 20 inch (508 mm).

1954 found Garelli introducing the Velo-Mosquito, along developed lines of the earlier BMG.  This purpose-made, pressed steel, rigid frame with leading-link forks was a simple and study mounting for the 38-B cyclemotor, and completed the missing link to the obvious next step.

From Wheels of ItalyThe Mosquito 38 was a two-stroke engine with a friction-drive roller transmission and engine capacity of 38.5 cc equipped with a carburetor, usually a Dell’Orto, capable of delivering power to 0.8 hp and a total weight of about 4 kg. Fuel was provided by a mixture of oil/gas at 6/7% rate in the tank for 2 liters and consumption was about 70 kilometers per liter. This model, in 1952 France, was known for its solid build quality. This was proven by running the engine continuously for 55 days and 55 nights at an average of 30 km/h. Garelli at that time announced that they had already had a record with over 400,000 identical Mosquito’s in circulating.

The Mosquito 38-B of 1953 had the engine capacity increased to 49 cc.

The “Centrimatic”, which followed the successful Mosquito 38-B in 1955, had a fundamental change: the adoption of a patented automatic transmission that further simplifying operation and succeeded to get the bicycle to reach the 45 km/h goal.

From Stingers by Mark Daniels: As it would be recognised today, the first ‘proper’ Garelli moped appeared in 1955, but this was by no means any sudden end to the Mosquito cyclemotor series that had set Garelli buzzing on its way. All three Mosquito cyclemotor engines, the Centrimatic 49 for £35-6s-6d, the 38-B direct drive 49 for £38-4s-6d, and even the original 307 at £30-9s-7d were still being listed available as late as 1960!

From Into the Desert by Mark Daniels: The first Garelli 515 model was displayed at the Milan Show in December 1955, for market sale the following year. Its fully suspended pressed-steel frame with unit-construction motor, manual clutch, three-speed gearbox, and chain final drive represented the company’s first true moped.

It was about this time that Garelli made its first contact with Agrati, as a supplier of pressings and cycle parts for its new mopeds.

Agrati Capri was “born” in 1958. Continued from Into the Desert by Mark Daniels:  Agrati shortly took the decision to develop their own range of scooters and mopeds in competition with the established Piaggio Vespa and Innocenti Lambretta.  Debuted in 1958, the Agrati Capri scooter was introduced with a 70cc two-stroke engine made by Garelli, and followed by a 50cc Como scooter model in 1960.

The 1960 flyer above says the M2 tires are 20 x 2.0 (24″ OD). That size was common on mopeds in the 1950’s. But in the 1960’s, 19 x 2.0 (23″ OD) was common. Some time after 1960 the Garelli M, M-2, and Automatic tires changed from 20 to 19″. Here 1962 is a guess.

Continued from Into the Desert by Mark Daniels:  The merger (with Agrati in 1961) also presented enough capital release for Garelli to return to its competition origins with the presentation of a new three-speed 50cc sports ‘Junior’ motor cycle.  Later fitted with a four-speed gearbox, two specially prepared and faired machines set a number of records at Monza over 3 – 4 November 1963: 6 hours average speed 75.7mph, 1,000 Kilometres at 72mph, 24 hours at 67mph and, to capitalise on the success, a production model Record Sports became popularly sold.

In 1965 Garelli motorcycles were imported to the US by Accessory Supply Company, 65 Page St, San Francisco CA. Both models are called Fan Trail because both have upswept exhaust for trail riding, although only the 98 with a Sachs 100 engine had a fan.

From Into the Desert by Mark Daniels: After 1965, the Agrati name was largely dropped from corporate branding, all motor cycles and scooters continuing thereon under the Garelli badge only.

Gulp was “born” in 1967, with a rear tank and no rear suspension.

Euromoped was “born” in 1967. It replaced the Garellino. The rims got smaller. It had a Garelli-made Laura-design M48-02 dry-clutch belt-drive engine with 40 x 38 bore and stroke, instead of 40 x 39 like all the other Garelli 50’s.

1969 Broncco TC-4 (same as ’69 Mini Bat Cross)

’68-69 Broncco TC-4

Broncco In 1968 to 1972 Broncco minibikes and mini-cycles were sold in the USA. The bikes were imported and distributed by Engine Specialties, in Cornwells Heights, Pennsylvania. They were made in Italy by Fantic Motor or Agrati-Garelli. 

The first models were yellow minibikes called “Bronco”. But all later models were called “Broncco”, because Ford owned the name “Bronco”.

1969 Broncco TS-4 (same as ’68-69 Mini Bat)

’68-69 Mini Bat

Only the 1969-70 Garelli-made Broncco TC-4, BC-4 and TS-4 had Garelli 50cc engines. Most other Broncco models were made by Fantic and had Aspera-Tecumseh or Minarelli engines.

The Broncco logo said “Bronco” curved in red letters in front of a bucking bronco. It was the same as the Fantic logo. In 1969-70 the Broncco logo had a small Garelli logo, but in 1971-72 it did not.

In 1971 the Fantic-made TX models continued, while the Garelli-made mini-cycle models were replaced with Fantic-made models. Broncco Diablo, Ranger, Eagle and Warrior had Minarelli P4-50 and P4-70 4-speed foot-shift manual clutch engines. The story of Broncco continues in the Fantic section.

In 1969 the UK definition of moped was 50cc, 1.5hp (25mph) max, with pedals.

Gulp Matic was “born” in 1969. It had a two-speed automatic-shift engine 357cP, first used on 1960-62 Mosquito M2 Automatic. Only the 1969-70 Gulp Matic had this rounded 60’s engine. From 1971 to 1978 Gulp Matic had the more squared 70’s type “G2” engine.

Goodbye round: 1970 was the last year of the 1960’s moped engines 351, 353, 354, 357 with rounded sides, except for the traditional models M (Colt) and M3. 

1970 Fa Moda

Garelli Fa Moda: Garelli published a several-page 1970 fashion brochure with about 30 images of the 1971-model motor bikes with young people wearing fashion apparel. 

New “G” engine family: In 1970 a new motor design came out. The rounded sides, cylinder and head fins of the 351, 353, 354, 357 engines became more straight. There were other internal changes. Garelli stopped mentioning the engine model number. So here the 1970-78 vertical-cylinder 50cc engine family is given a made-up name beginning with the letter G. The G-engine family is G1, G1k, G2, G2k, G3v, G3vk, G3m, G3mk, G4mk, G5mk. “k” means kick start, “v” (velocita) means manual hand-shift, and “m” (marce) means manual foot-shift. The engine model is colored gold, instead of blue, to indicate that it’s a nickname.

Engine Model Names: Since American Garelli never gave a name to their one-speed-automatic horizontal-cylinder pedal-start engine, it is convenient to refer to it as the Noi engine, here called H1. In the same manner it is convenient to refer to the two-speed vertical engines as Gulp or VIP, here called G2 or V2. (elsewhere V2 means V-twin). There are also kick start and manual clutch versions, and either 1 or 2 speed automatic, or 3 speed manual transmissions. Altogether the Garelli moped engines are here labeled H1, H1m, H1k, H1mk, H2, H2m, H2k, H2mk and G1, G1k, G2, G2k, G3m and V1, V1k, V2, V2k, V3m. There are also Monza types M1, M1k, and motorcycle types G4mk, G5mk with 4 or 5 speed manual transmissions (some with pedals for UK).

Germany had two kinds of mopeds. Mofas were 25 km/h (16 mph) and did not need a license. Mopeds were 40 km/h (26 mph) and needed a moped drivers license.

 

Katia was “born” in 1971, with the brand new 50cc horizontal-cylinder “H” type automatic engine. 1970’s Katia versions:
Katia M (1 speed with pedals, H1 engine), Katia MK (1 speed kick start, H1k engine), Katia K2V (2 speed kick start, H2k engine)

Funky Mopeds (UK)

1972 Tiger Cross (UK)

New meaning of “Junior”: In 1972 the word “Junior” was removed from the Junior Rekord and Junior Tiger Cross model names. Those were full-size bikes. The kid’s mini-cycle “Bat Baby” with a Morini S5K2 1-speed automatic engine renamed “Junior Cross”. Up to 1971 “Junior” meant “young adult”. After 1971 “Junior”  meant “young child”.

In Jan 1972 the UK “sixteener law” required 16-year-olds to drive only “mopeds”. The new definition of “moped” was 50cc with pedals, unlimited in power and speed. By late-1972 or early-1973, makers like Garelli added pedals to their 50cc motorcycles.

The book “Funky Mopeds” by Richard Skelton covers these bikes and this period. The UK-model specs and year ranges listed here are from there. 

Eureka was “born” in 1972. It had the Katia horizontal cylinder engine design. The advantage of a horizontal cylinder design is slightly better bike  control and handling, because the weight of the cylinder is lower.

Early fork: The Garelli Eureka and Sport models had the older type fork. It was a one-piece upper (outer) tubes and yoke, with lower (inner) sliding tubes. The other models had separate upper (inner) tubes, a yoke that clamped to them, with lower (outer) sliding tubes.

Eureka Flex: Early 1970’s Eureka models were “hard tails”, no rear suspension. Eureka “Flex” models had flexible rear suspension.

 


’76 Garelli (BR)

Garelli Ibramoto was the manufacturer for South America. Here is a Portuguese to English translation of this 1976 ad from Brazil.

“Ibramoto, manufacturer of Garelli motorcycles, and Bloch Editores open for you the opportunity to create a phrase about gasoline economy that will be disseminated nationally, and to compete for six new Garelli’s, to put the theory into practice. Fill in the coupon and send it to Bloch Editores, Garelli Contest, Rua do Russell, 804 Rio de Janeiro, to win a Katia Garelli if your sentence is one of the six that will be chosen by the Judging Committee among all participants.”

At the end it says “The receipt of sentences will end on January 10, 1977.” This dates it to 1976.

American Garelli introduced Garelli mopeds to America. These ads were for prospective dealers. Their slogan was “Garelli – What America is coming to”.

the-garelli-manualAmerican Garelli made excellent service and parts manuals, combined in a black 3-ring standard notebook, titled “The Garelli Manual – A complete manual of service, parts, and technical information prepared for use by Garelli dealers”.

 

 

 

 

US-model mopeds have brake lights, electric horns, and side reflectors. The switches on the handlebar are different than Euro models. Other than that, the machinery is the same. They have different speed versions: 20, 25, 30mph instead of 25kmh, 40kmh, or 45kmh.

TL 3V 50 1976


In Aug 1977 the UK definition of moped became 50cc, 35mph max, no pedals required. The early 1977 UK mopeds are like 1976, 50cc with pedals, unlimited in power and speed. The late 1977 UK mopeds are like 1978, under 35mph, no pedals required.

Bottom, ’78-80 oil tank

 

In 1977 American Garelli developed the “oil injector” tank, that was mounted alongside the gas tank. The purpose was to put the correct amount of oil into the gasoline when filling up with gas. It was not a true oil injector, that injects oil into the engine. Only the USA model Garelli mopeds had oil injector tanks. Most of them have been removed. After 20 years their plunger pump did not always pump enough oil. Myrons has recommended mixing the oil and gas manually, and not using the Garelli oil injector, since the early 1990’s.

 

 

Clymer Garelli Manual

In 1977 American Garelli disliked the name “Gulpmatic”, and changed it to “Gran Sport Twin”. because it had twin automatic clutches. That name was used in the 1977 Clymer Garelli Manual http://projectmopedmanual.info/Manual_HTML/garelli.html . The new name only lasted about one year. The 1977 Gran Sport had a different frame and engine than the 1977 Gran Sport Twin. That was confusing. So in 1978 and later parts or service manuals, the name is 1977 Gulpmatic. In 1978 the VIP replaced the Gulpmatic.  

 

 

 

In late 1977, cast aluminum “mag” wheels were introduced. They are known as “mags” because the earliest cast alloy automotive wheels were made of magnesium. Both spoke and “mag” wheel types are made in Italy by Grimeca.

In late 1977 the Rally Sport replaced the Gran Sport (spoke wheel)

 


1978 Garelli (UK)

Noi: In 1978 the Eureka was renamed Noi, Italian for we.
Sport: The US model Eureka was renamed Sport.

Oil tanks: Notice how all of the 1978 models are facing the right, except the Sport. Notice how all models, except the Sport, have light grey oil injector tanks on the right side of the gas tank. It is rare to see a collection of Garelli’s all with their oil tanks, since they are usually removed at some point. These are the oil tanks that say American Garelli in orange. That dates the bikes to 1977. The actual 1978 bikes had part-black oil tanks with great big OIL INJECTOR writing. 

From 16″ to 17″ rims: In 1978, Garelli changed it’s 16″ rims, except Sport, to 17″ rims. The 1977-79 mags were 17″ Razze Incrociate “snowflake” or “X-ray” style.

From 17″ back to 16″: In late 1979, Garelli changed back to all 16″ rims, like before 1978. The 1979-1980 mag wheels were 16″ 7 Razze “7-ray” style.

Garelli Spare Parts CataloguesIn late 1977 American Garelli became Agrati-Garelli Corporation of America. With that came many changes. In late 1978, the orange label on the oil injector tank that said American Garelli, was made black, and said oil injector in big letters. In 1978 the bikes began coming with 17″ rims. Other things became black in 1978, like the engine side covers.

In 1978 Agrati-Garelli Corporation of America produced this oversized 3-ring notebook. There are also 1980 and 1983 editions. Each page is stamped with the Agrati-Garelli Spa Gruppo Industriale logo. At the front of each section are the speed versions and the frame number ranges. Newer sections are added at the back, in newer editions.

In 1978 the horizontal 2-speed (H2) engine was introduced on the Super Sport Ltd.

Garelli Noi: A Noi is a European model that is like a Rally Sport, USA model. The name Noi was never used by either American Garelli or Agrati-Garelli Corp of America. It was not in any parts catalog or service manual. The American name was Sport, Gran Sport, or Rally Sport.

Noi means “us” or “we” in Italian.

1970’s summary from wikiwandIn the seventies a historic Tubone was born , the Ciclone , from which the future Formuno , Superciclone and Urka derived . Other successful models born in the seventies are the Katia (1973), the Vip (1978) and the Noi (1979).

H2 swingarms: Garelli horizontal two speed (H2) swingarms have higher shock mounts than one speed types, to clear the higher 50T rear sprocket. At left is a H2, and right is a H1. The shocks are about an inch shorter on the H2 version.

In the 1980’s most European countries and some US states stopped requiring pedals on mopeds. So most late-1980’s and later mopeds worldwide were kick start with foot pegs, no pedals.

New headlight: In the 1980 flyer, all models had the CEV “pancake” healight, with replaceable bulb. But the 1980 VIP below has a “bullet” headlight, rather than a “pancake” headlight, like all the other 1980 Garelli models. So not everything changes at once.

New cylinder: The 1980 Super Sport Ltd with H1 or H2 engine had the new 5-fin aluminum cylinder. It’s easy to see from a distance by the silver color, when the other model’s iron cylinders are dark gray.

The H2 engine model has a larger rear sprocket, 50 tooth instead of 32. See how in the 1980 brochure, the black bike at top left has a much bigger rear sprocket? That is how to tell a horizontal 2-speed from a distance.

New switches: In 1980 the switches changed from 1977-80 “Garelli oval chrome” to 1980-85 “CEV diamond plastic“. The new switches were not prone to breaking like the old ones were. The control housings did not change, except for color, from silver to black.

New oil injector: In 1980 the oil injector tank was redesigned, with a less-noticeable, two-sided version. It is seen below, on both the 1980 Rally Sports and the gorgeous green 1980 VIP.

In 1980 the Sport had rear suspension and the 1977 better fork. It was the same as the Rally Sport, except it had painted fenders, not polished stainless, it had a solo seat, not a bench seat, no rear luggage rack, and no oil injector tank.

L, 1985 Rally SL 105mm brakes, 2.25-16 tires
R, 1980 Rally Sport 90mm brakes, same tires

Brake drums: After 1980 the brake drum size on spoke wheels increased from 90 to 105mm. In the 1980-81 flyer below, only the black Super Sport XL with gold mag wheels has the smaller 90mm brakes. You can clearly see the three other models with spoke wheels have bigger front brakes, but you can’t see that the rear brakes are also bigger. 

In the photo at right, you can see the difference in brake size. A 1985 Rally SL has a bigger front hub than a 1980 Rally Sport.

World Champion: From Into the Desert by Mark Daniels: Under the team leadership of Daniel Agrati, Garelli returned to racing in 1982, devastating all competition as Angel Nieto and Eugeno Lazzarini swept to first and second places in the 125cc World Championship, and soundly secured the Constructors Cup. Lazzarini also finished second in the 50cc class.

 


1983 Garelli 125 GP

provided by Elsberg Tuning in Denmark

After years of 50cc GP racing experience, competing with 50cc world champions Kreidler and Derbi, Garelli became successful in 125cc Gran Prix Motorcycle Road Racing. Garelli was 125 GP world champion in 1982, 1983, 1984, and 1985.

Read more about Garelli 50cc racing: http://www.elsberg-tuning.dk/garelli.html. The last race for a 50cc Garelli was in 1984 at the first 80cc GP race at Misano. The 50cc Garelli won the 80cc race, and set a new lap record. It made 21.5 horsepower and had a 29.5mm carburetor. That racing 50 made ten times more power than a mild mannered 50cc moped, and it went 100 mph faster!

Garelli TSR 125 produced 1983-1985. By the early 1980s the 125 class was the most popular in Italy with well over 100,000 125cc motorcycles sold annually, and Garelli approached this market. For 1983 they released the TSR 125 with a Minarelli watercooled engine. The specification was modern, with disc brakes and alloy wheels, a bikini fairing and contemporary body styling. However, it was outmatched in looks and performance by the many rivals built by Aprilia, Cagiva, Fantic, Laverda and others, and was not a commercial success.

From Stingers by Mark Daniels: In 1983, remarkably, Garelli relaunched a new 36cc Mosquito cyclemotor auxiliary engine! The wheel of time seemed to turn full circle as the friction drive motor again became offered as the Bicimosquito attachment kit, or Velomosquito complete machine version. The return of these economy models was not however any sign of further success, but an indication of the depressed state of business, and the desperate position in which Garelli now found itself. The collapsed market for motor cycles and mopeds had led to an increasing dependence on activity from its Torpedo cycle division, and return of the Mosquito cyclemotor was perceived as a means to complement this now critical sector of income.

’83 Garelli Monza GT (US) and Junior Turismo

 

 

 

 

Monza G.T. was “born” in 1983, in the US. It’s European sister was Junior Turismo.

New worldwide laws: Because of new worldwide motor vehicle manufacturer labeling requirements, including the 17-digit encoded VIN, that became mandatory for motor vehicles made after 1980, Garelli and the other moped manufacturers like Puch, Vespa, Tomos produced and stockpiled many 1980-made mopeds, that got sold in 1981, 82 or 83. That is why there are not many 1981, 1982, or 1983 US moped models or brochures. In the early 1980’s Garelli moped dealers used the same 1979-1980 sales brochures, and sold 1980 models, for 2 or 3 years.

Monza GT is the US version of Junior Turismo. This beautiful piece of Italian art and engineering arrived very late, as moped popularity was fading. As a result, Garelli did not sell many Monza GT’s, and so they uncommon in most parts of the USA today. The parts are even rarer.

Monza GT owners manual

Monza GT (US)

 

 

 

 

 

 

M1 Engine: The Monza GT has a 1-speed automatic, vertical cylinder engine, with pedals. It is like the 1978-1985 VIP 2-speed, except some of the engine is different. The bore and stroke are both 40 x 39mm, but the VIP has a 1970’s style cast iron cylinder, while the Monza GT has a 1980’s style all aluminum cylinder with lots of fins. The cases are different at the cylinder base. The piston has a very high crown, like the early 1970’s European models such as Tiger, but with a boost transfer port rectangular window on the upper intake side of the piston. Apparently a Tiger piston works in a Monza GT, without the transfer port window, but makes less power. Because of these major differences, we are calling this vertical cylinder one-speed “M1” instead of “V1”. H is horizontal, V is vertical, and M is Monza vertical.

Out of about 20 moped shop buyouts in the 1980’s and 1990’s, Myrons Mopeds accumulated a “wall” of moped parts manuals, dealer notebooks, sales brochures, service and training manuals. Out of all that there was no 1984-1986 Garelli parts manuals or information. Out of 5000 mopeds serviced over 33 years, only about one or two were Monza GT’s. That’s how rare they are in Southern California. That’s why the only parts for Monza GT that Myrons has, are parts that are the same as other models.

1986 Garelli Monza GT/S was gold with gold mags, square head light, straight fin head.

 

In this 1986 flyer, the Basic has the dark colored cast iron cylinder, while the Rally SL and SSXL have the silver-colored 5-fin aluminum cylinder.

 

New controls: In 1986 the Garelli controls, made by Domino, changed from “1977-85 chrome with black housings and diamond switches” to “1986-93 black with integrated switches“. Tomos also changed to these levers in 1986.   

 


No more US models: After 1986 moped sales in the USA had been declining, because of new license laws, lower gas prices, and Japanese scooters like the 1984-85 Honda Spree. Garelli, and other moped makers like Puch and Vespa, pulled out of the USA, but continued to produce mopeds for the European market.

1980’s summary from wikiwand : In the eighties , Garelli motorcycles were equipped with Minarelli thermal units with horizontal cylinders. In these years the company achieved notable success in the world championship.

At the end of the 1980s, Garelli merged with Fantic Motor , also in serious financial crisis, giving life to the FM Group (acronym for Fabbrica Motocicli) which will close its doors in 1993 .

Fabbrica Motoveicoli - Garelli - Fantic

Gary: During the late 1980’s European motorcycle manufacturers lost sales to Japanese makers. Most had to merge and become government controlled. Agrati-Garelli merged with Fantic Motor, which was a division of Fabbrica Motoveicoli (motor vehicle factory), all in Italy. 

The 1989-93 Gary is a modernized 1984-88 Garelli Basic.

Avanti and Cosmo: 2000-02 Avanti mopeds and mini-cycles, and 2000-02 Cosmo Stinger were made in India by Mont Motors. They had Avanti Va1, Va2 and Va2k (Garelli VIP remake) engines.

From Reincarnation by Mark Daniels: The Avanti in this case takes its name from a kingdom of ancient India, in the territory of present day Madhya Pradesh state and was, for a time, part of the historic province of Malwa. 

 

Kelvinator started the Avanti (Corporation) as an automobile company (not so unlikely when you consider that Kelvinator was merged with Nash Motors) and, in a technical collaboration with Agrati from 1984, made licence-built copies of Garelli-engined mopeds from a factory at Alwar, Rajasthan.

Agrati-Garelli Gruppo Industriale collapsed in 1992 but, unaffected by the demise of its European partner, the Indian concern continued. The 50-acre (Avanti) plant was bought over by Pacco Ind Corp (carburettors & fuel pumps) in 1999, renamed Monto (Mont) Motors and expanded into building lightweight motorcycles and scooters in partnership with the Chinese Lifan Group.

From wikiwand   From May 21, 2007 , Garelli became AC Milan’s official supplier. 

As a result of the sharp decline in sales in the small displacement mopeds and scooters sector, the Nuova Garelli sought an outlet in the larger displacement market, proposing itself to purchase the failed Moto Morini . However, after weeks of unsuccessful negotiations, Nuova Garelli withdrew its offer on June 14, 2010 , at the same time issuing a harsh press release motivating the withdrawal in the face of hostility or disinterested behavior, held by the Councilor for Productive Activities of the Province from Bologna.

Epilogue and closure
After more than five years of management, constantly at a loss, in June 2011 Paolo Berlusconi sold the majority stake in Nuova Garelli SpA to the Abruzzo-based investment company Ab Capital, and the following year the company was first put into liquidation and then Nuova Garelli Srl in liquidation, the last company to bear that name, was admitted to the arrangement with creditors.

Garelli, the return to electric
In 2018, those entitled to sign an agreement with a company in San Marino for the lease of the brand and the same year, at EICMA , a new Ciclone , a 100% electric motorcycle , is presented . [6]

Di Blasi

August 21, 2019

Di Blasi Industriale is an Italian manufacturer of folding bicycles, tricycles, and mopeds, based in Francofonte, Sicily.

From Wikipedia  The founder of the company, Rosario Di Blasi, began development of a folding scooter in 1952, which by 1968 had evolved into a Zanetti-powered folding tricycle called the DIBLA 7 that was shown at the Turin Auto Show as a prototype. Finally in 1974 Di Blasi began production of a folding moped with a Franco Morini motor and single-speed transmission called the R2 (also known as the “Paperino”). In 1979 the model R7 replaced the R2 and featured an engine of Di Blasi’s own design as well as a multi-speed transmission. This moped has been continuously improved and is still in production as the R7E. It has been used by the Polizia Stradale, the Traffic Police division of the Italian National Police, aboard their helicopters. The R7 is sold by Di Blasi of America as the “Express.”

Di Blasi of America is in Florida USA. Here is the website: https://www.diblasi.com/

Di Blasi mini-cycles (mopeds): These are collapsible mini-cycles that can fit in a bus, airplane, train, boat or car. Although they lack pedals, they are legally mopeds in many, but not all, US states. They fold into an incredibly compact size. When you load or unload it you get to say “hand me that motorcycle” with a devious smile!

Parts: All models have 4.00-5″ tires. R7 models (R7WT, R7TB, R7E, R7ES) have the same engine top end (cylinder, piston and head), compatible with 1970-80 Motobecane AV7 moped engines like on US models.

It had an expanding pulley with a V-belt (a variator) like a French moped, kick start, and a 415 chain final drive with 9 x 42T sprockets. The cylinder, piston, head, and most of the crankshaft look the same as 1970’s Motobecane AV7. It had a Dellorto SHA 14/12 carburetor with size 54 jet. Carburetor parts are offered in Parts/Carburetor/Dellorto. manualmachine.com has the 1985 R7WT parts manual and the 1985 R7WT owners manual .

1982-89 R7WT had frame numbers 14000 to 19999. 

Lighting Equipment Versions
1. The “EU” version was for most of Europe and the world. It had a 6 volt 18 watt magneto. The lights were smaller and less watts. No brake light. One left-side handlebar lights/horn/engine-stop switch.
2. The “US” version was also for Great Britain (GB) and Switzerland (CH). It had a 6 volt 25 watt magneto. The lights were bigger. There was extra equipment for a brake light. Two handlebar switches, right-side engine stop, and left-side lights/horn. These were the CEV “diamond” type.

Magneto
US version had a CEV 6932 points magneto (CEV#04212), with external ignition ground, external spark coil. The blue wire must be grounded to have spark. This was to meet the legal requirement that the headlight must not get dim when the brake light goes on. Source coils are 04308 lights and 04307 ignition.
EU version had CEV 6931 (CEV #04394), with internal ignition ground, external spark coil. Source coils are 04233 lights and 04277 ignition in the parts list, but at least some have an 04235 ignition spark coil and no external spark coil. All the other parts (points, condenser, flywheel, etc) are the same as the USA version.

Di Blasi magneto part numbers are CEV-Pagani numbers with the prefix PG (for Pagani-CEV). Parts are in Parts/Ignition, Magneto/CEV magneto.
