1970 Capri
Hi There, just wonder if you have any contacts that might have a speedo cable for my Capri?
Or do you know any companies that can supply one?
Thanks in advance

  • There is a company in Australia which may be able to help -

Capri (1961) Bog standard 50cc
In summer 1962 I went from London to Athens (via France & Italy - Rome, Naples, Brindisi, then ferry, Corfu, Igoumenitsa) and back through Yugoslavia, Austria, Switzerland & France, 5017 miles on my 50cc Capri scooter.

Further to your our correspondence (your email below) I've been writing a feature for my next year's (2012) school magazine that starts:
FIFTY YEARS AGO, during my last year at school, I applied for one of the school's travelling awards for a trip by moped to Athens and back with two fellow pupils .....
In the event, we were awarded enough to buy a small motor cycle (a Puch Cheetah) and a motor scooter (a Capri) and pay for the trip.
You get the drift?

Anyway, on thinking about it, the Puch was 50cc but maybe my bog-standard official UK-import Capri was 70cc and not the 50cc I wrote earlier?  I mention this for the sake of accuracy. It was all so long ago ....!

garelli capri junior IV 1965
Please can anyone help me to get the abovementioned type Garelli.

September 14, 2002

I think I can add something to your fantastic web site.
I own a 1964 Capri turismo de lux moped. 50 cc
It only has done 30 kilometers in 38 years. It has been untouched in an Italian dealers warehouse all the time as unsold stock.

The little bike has a 4 speed gearbox selected by the left-hand twistgrip. On the engine is a "Mosquito" logo but it is the same engine as fitted on the Garelli's of that period. Front fork, rear suspension, is also Garelli.

The mark " agrati monticello " is pressed in the rims. This mark is also found on the rims of the 60's Garelli's .

I suspect it was built by Garelli but I'm not sure.

A friend of mine has the same moped. The only difference is that his moped has an earles type front fork. But this thing has Garelli logo's on petrol tank and engine. Garelli themselves built a Capri 50 in the 1960's, but this was a motorscooter.

Anyone out there who can shine a light on this?

Many thanks in advance.
