Alternative Skootamota

Postby adrie.degraaff » Wed Jan 06, 2021 10:55 am

This is the latest build mainly to make the 1910-14 Sparkbrook and the ABC engine useble.
It has a rolldrive with free engine it can be cycled if it brakes down.
It won't be started becouse it's in the house, we don't want the petrol smel.
The petroltank could be more exiting or on the rear.
It has a step-on rear axel an old Dutch way for easy mounting if there is a carrier engine.

Hi adrie ik reed met de simplex dagelijks naar mijn werk en had wekelijks een lekke band waarschijnlijk pikte de lage opstelling van de motorrol meer vuil op ? Hij sleet in ieder geval als een gek. Gr Chris

Hi adrie I used the simplex on Daily base and had a flat every week maybe the enginerol picked up more dirt by its low mounting position ? Anyway the tyre wear was huge reg Chris
