Yamaha DT50/80MX

My newest touring moped, a Yamaha DT50MX – with an RD80 engine, lets just call it an optimized DT50MX, or DT80MX? As usual, pretty rough state. I invested a lot of time in the frame and engine, but close to no cosmetic repairs. I use it to haul lots of luggage and the paint would just get ruined anyways. The engine is a five speed with 79 ccm cylinder that i have ported to get a little power increase. I used a low hung Simson moped exhaust to get more space for panniers. The ignition is a modified HPI 2-Ten from a newer DT model, so that i have nice 12V light and a little battery to power my phone. The ignition curve gives me lots of bottom end torque. The whole thing is fed by a classic Dellorto PHBG 21 mm.

Filles Gilera CBA

Just a quick restoration of an Italian Gilera CBA. The rims, fork and rear frame where a bit bent. We think it has been in a crash at some point. We straightened it and gave it a quick mechanical restoration and an engine tuning with a Malossi 43 mm cylinder kit.

Jespers Vespa Bravo 1994

My buddy Jesper needed a cheap reliable moped, he threatened to buy a cheap scooter – so i had to act fast. I bought a big lot of Vespa / Piaggio parts some weeks ago, and there where nearly enough parts to build a complete Bravo. Nice to get these parst on the road again, instead of collecting dust in someones shed.

Small Pistons Moped Touring 2021

This year our trip was planned early. Due to travel restrictions, nearly all shelters where pre-booked already in february. So we had to find a date quick and make some reservations. But to no complaint, the weather changed to dry and hot just as we started our trip.

We drove along the german border to Als, where we took the ferry to Fyn. Took the southern bike route and back to the westcoast inland. From there over to Jylland again and back home. The weather really had a great impact on our mood, but the routes where amazing too.

Moped Touring 2021

We had some new members with us, with partly unrestored mopeds. They where the cause of many repair stops, broken clutches, ignition problems and loose exhausts. But that just adds some fun to the trip.

Enjoy some pictures below, a video will come shotly after.
