I picked up this bike on black friday for $350. The owner knew very little about the bike as someone who owed him $ gave it to him. He did say it was fast and would smoke all the other 50's in his area hitting 47mph.

Well I got it home and started dissembing and cleaning eveything and I find a Malossi 70cc cylinder, no wonder he thought it was quick.

Missing Parts:
-Gas & Oil tanks
-Seat Hinge
-Keys
-Intake Manifold broken-carb hacked up
-Leather seat cover
-Air filter
-prob some other things that I'm not aware of..

My plan is to custom fit some sort of tank where the old one was, run premix, will do a compression test on it soon, but I will prob. stick with the 70cc cylinder setup. Fresh cylinder if needed. 17.5-19mm carb. Might also simplify the set up even more, manual choke, turn signal delete (like euro spec models) Spedo delete possibly.

A collector in the UK mentioned Yellow was a rare color for the Velocifero's, so I won't be painting it.

Freaking awesome!! Love them, they never came here. Half smallframe chassis, half auto. If I recall they used the 50 Special stamping machines for the legshield…

You can find parts on the Italian eBay and Subito.it…

Here's another parts source, they helped in sourcing a fair number of parts for my '01 Torpedo 2T:
