FMB Telaimotor 48 SS
The Telaimotor factory was established in the city Bologna.
I have attached a copy from an advertizing from the magazine Motociclismo, datet november 1969.
And a picture from the 48SS that I own
The frame on the pictures from Paolo is the same as on the picture from
Nico and my picture.
This frame was also used by Aquila and was equiped with a Benelli engine

cannot start and can't find VIN
cannot start and throttle seems to do nothing. Trying to get title straight but can't find a vin
I finally figured out how to start it but I believe my title is bogus. They charge so much for title transfer here in Illinois its hard telling when the last time this bike was titled. I didn't see the person whom I bought it from on the title either. The title I have says it's 1963 but I find that hard to believe. That is why I need to find the VIN. Thanks for any help. Rich

The bike is made in Italia. It's a 49 cc 2 stroke engine. The marque is an FMB telaimotor.
The bike will be restaured this winter.

1977 FMB Yankee Peddler
I have a 1977 FMB Yankee Peddler, and it doen't always fire up when I try to start it. I believe it is due to a bad capacitor in the flywheel. Do you know where I can get one?

This page includes the following:
"I have a 1977 FMB Yankee Peddler moped for which I'm desperately in need of some information and parts. It was manufactured by FMB Telaimotor in March 1977 and has a Motori Minarelli engine with the number S1 DEM9560-S stamped on the engine's housing."

Just got this mail. Anyone out there who knows more? Ivar maybe?
Myself, this is the very first time in my life I hear the name telaimotor.
I have seen a Telaimotor in Italy on a few rare occasions. Small 50cc mopeds. Though I am not sure, I believe they carried a two stroke Fantic engine. Not much help I guess. -- Ivar de Gier

I own a 1979 50cc Minarelli Moped that goes by the name "Yankee Peddler". The Minnarelli engine was exported & put on frames in Rhode Island. I'm trying to bring it back to life (it was barely running when I got it) & know only the basics of bike repair.
I picked up as repair manual from Steve's mopeds in New Jersey (they're on the net), but unfortunately there was no help for the wiring, just the engine.
I know Minarelli was either bought out or became another company, but I can't remember what. It might be a good source for replacement parts & info if I can find out. Please email any & all advice (except "Junk it & get a new one." - I've already heard that) to catbus40 at yahoo dot com . Thanks!
