I'm having trouble identifying what year it was made. I'm also looking to find a gas tank for it. I recently brought a property off of an auction and found it in the basement of an old house. It appears to be in fairly decent condition and I would like to try to get it running again.
Thank you so much for reaching out. I can get some more pictures once I get back over to the house of the friend who is working on it. As you can see in the picture it is without a gas tank. Iím struggling to find one if you can help. If I can get it running then I will likely be looking for other parts as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you sir!
The moped could possibly be a Cricket, but it's rather hard to tell from the photos. The Cricket was sold in the USA late 60s early 70s, I believe. Ed.

Testi Champion 50cc - unsure of year but think 1972
Please could you tell me what a base size for the main jet is on these bikes. We have a customers bike here that wasn't running very well and it turns out there was no main jet in the carb. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
H & A Bell Ltd
The engine appears to be a Minarelli. From the engine number it should be possible to ascertain the model, and an applicable Minarelli manual will give the jet sizes.

Les Gitane de mon pere. (ISBN-10: 2726886558)
La Gitane Testi Champion Super, n√©e en Italie, fera r√™ver la jeunesse fran√ßaise des ann√©es 1970, gr√Ęce √† sa ligne rac√©e et √† sa conception digne d'une v√©ritable moto. Mais la
marque Gitane a une histoire ! Cr√©√©e en 1928 par Marcel Bruneli√®re, elle va asseoir sa r√©putation sur une production de cycles de qualit√©, suivie par un fort d√©veloppement de l'entreprise avec
l'apparition, dans les ann√©es 1950, d'une large gamme de cyclomoteurs et motocyclettes. La petite reine se fera remarquer √©galement par ses exploits sportifs. Jacques Anquetil, Lucien Aimar, Lucien Van Impe, Bernard Hinault et
Laurent Fignon remporteront dix fois le Tour de France au guidon de v√©los Gitane. Championnats du monde, record de vitesse √† plus de 200 km/h, rien n'arr√™te la Gitane. Retrouvez, dans ce livre, une pr√©sentation
exhaustive des "motoris√©s", un aper√ßu de la vari√©t√© de production de bicyclettes et une √©vocation des principaux succ√®s sportifs d√©croch√©s au guidon de v√©los Gitane.
A rather clumsy translation:
The Gitane Testi Super Champion, made in Italy, was the dream of French youth in the 1970s thanks to its racy lines and its design worthy of a genuine motorcycle. But the Gitane marque has a history! Created in 1928 by
Marcel Bruneli√®re, it developed a reputation on a production of quality cycles, followed by a strong development of the company with the appearance, in the years 1950, of a broad range of auto-cycles and motor cycles. The small queen
will point out herself also by her sporting exploits. Jacques Anquetil, Lucien Aimar, Lucien Van Impe, Bernard Hinault and Laurent Fignon will gain ten times the Tour de France to the handlebar of Gitane bicycles. Championships of the world,
record from speed to more than 200 km/h, nothing stops the Gitane. Find, in this book, an exhaustive presentation of "motorized", an outline of the variety of production of bicycles and an evocation of the principal sporting successes achived by Gitane cycles.

circular part on the lens it standsAprilia IGM 2860 C2 also 036825.
About the speedmeter I dont know.The diameter should be 52mm for the instument and the "wheelgear" must be rather big to fit.Is it some figures you want me to messure about the mid of the wheel?

Some years ago in 1975, at age of 16, I was looking for a little motorcycle here in Austria. There were a lot of Puch (of course) Z√ľndapp, Hercules, Ktm, some Kreidler but they all looked like "Mopeds". Then, at hollydays with my
parents in Italy I saw al little racebike called TESTI. It looked like a real little motorbike an I loved it at first sight. We had lovely yerars together - and we still have! After 24 years I know her very well, my little Testi with its 50
