    Default Manet Korado Project

    So, while looking for gum poles I came across this and couldn't resist the novelty of owning one, plus having something to fiddle with...

    Basically it is a Slovakian Moped manufactured in 1995 by Manet under a Piaggio licence with a Puch E50 50cc two stroke motor developing 2kw. Apparently this motor is quite advanced from the original Puch motor, with bigger ports, roller bearing crank and a single Dykes piston ring.

    Top speed is 40 km/h and fuel consumption between 44-50 km/l

    The frame is the fuel tank, and to fill it to capacity (About 3.5 liter, a vent in the rear of the frame has to be opened)

    The electrical system is 6 volt and this model did not come out with brake lights, indicators, dim/bright or a hooter.

    Obstacles so far:
    Fuel tank has been left open, therefore rusted
    Carburetor bowl filled with white corroded powder
    Major obstacle: the ignition system has been stripped out

    It has only 581 km on the clock, there is no carbon on the piston head and no scouring on the piston as viewed through the exhaust port.

    This should keep me busy over Christmas.

    Wow! What a find!

    I would love to get hold of something like this (always been a 2 stroke nutter).

    How is it going with the ignition system and getting this Manet up to showroom floor status?
