Re: 85 Spree No click

Welcome to the forum Sb69!

Things that spring to mind would be a knackered starter relay or maybe not squeezing the brakes when you thumb the starter

Re: Smoke

Loving the torque reaction on that first Yam!

Those pipes at the top look like they'd be useful for keeping warm during winter riding too :smile:

Re: Aimee's wicked Smile

I wonder how different the frames are between the different variants?
Might be possible to get a set of panels and do a straight swap.

I wouldn't bet on it.
You'd need to try seeing if a base gasket fits and go from there.

In the UK the Melody Deluxe, Deluxe 2 and Mini have different heads and different shaped pistons amongst many other subtle changes.

Re: Can anyone ID this scooter?

Some idea of how my Melody D2 went in to my Polo. Golf's are bigger and have a squarer back on them. I could've removed the rear seat cushions to make a bit more room too. Incidentally it had all it's fluids in (including half a tank of gas) and had no spillages. If the image doesn't show below: htt...

Re: Can anyone ID this scooter?

It should easily fit in a Golf with the full back seat folded down.

I've had scooters in the back of my VW Polo (baby Golf) with no problem.

Just had a look on CMSNL and the Danish NT50 has a different barrel to the english one (Danish one not pictured on CMSNL). If you post a picture of the engine and the year you might be lucky for BBK and might be able to get something like this (note angled/ side exhaust stub): https://www.wemoto.com...

Re: Does NT50 Melody mini fit bigbore kits with NQ50 Spree engine?

UK models ND50 and NP50 do not have big bore kits and all you can do is buy an oversize piston and bore out the barrel to get something like an 8cc increase in power. I did try a barrel from an 80's Vision (NE50) but it didn't match the crank case. You could try ordering base gaskets to see what mig...

Re: Highest priced spree?

If you think $3,000+ is expensive for a 50cc moped, you should check out the prices of Yamaha FS1E Fizzys on ebay.co.uk A recent sale went for over $6,000! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yamaha-Fs1e-1975-baja-brown-moped/202256764767?hash=item2f17714f5f:g:ShwAAOSwfghapORH https://i.ebayimg.com/thumbs/im...
