Carabela Motorcycles

Made in Mexico from 1971

Brief History of the Marque: Carabela

Assembled in Mexico from mainly Italian components for the US market using Minarelli and Villa engines.

Francisco A. Rosete writes:
The Carabela factory in Mexico city started making bikes around 1960 using Minarelli engines, 50 cc, 100 cc. Later, around 1966 they made complete motorcycles, the engines were all two strokes of 66cc, 100cc, 125cc, 175cc, 200cc, 250cc, and there was a twin-cylinder 350 that was originally the Jawa 350 with a improved suspension and larger heads.

I think Carabela has been purchased by Yamaha, and they no longer make the Carabela bikes.

My find of a lifetime is a 1970 scooter by carabela. However it has sat for a while, it will run, but i need help to clean it right up as the gas is old. I am a 40 year old woman with no mechanical experience but want to do the work myself. Can anyone point me in the direction to start?
