Minarelli Konya/Turkiye Engine Identification
I have 3 speed handlebar shifter kick start minarelli engine. It's known as 1hp minarelli in Konya/Turkiye but I can't find it's exact model and spec sheet on internet. Bore and stroke measures at 42.8 and 52.6mm so roughly 75cc. Gear ratios are something like 13:1 1st, 7:1 2nd and 5:1 3rd. Intake manifold mount carburetor mount diameter is 24mm. Original carburetor of it dellorto PHBG 19.19 but I mounted SHA 15.15 with reducer. Intake manifold mount carburetor mount diameter is 24mm. They are used on cargo trikes. It's shouldn't be 1hp with that displacement.

Giorgio Fumagalli in a comment on Classic Motorcycles FB

Good morning, :) the company FB Minarelli (of Vittorio Minarelli), has built only engines. It never built motorcycles or mopeds complete.

The FB Minarelli company was born from the dismemberment of the FBM company closed in 1956. The two members of the company FBM were Vittorio Minarelli and Franco Morini. When they closed the FBM in 1956, every former associate fund 'a personal ditta.Vittorio Minarelli founded FB Minarelli then in 1967 gearbox' name Minarelli Engines. Franco Morini founded the Franco Morini engines. Both the FB Minarelli / Minarelli Engines that Franco Morini engines, produced exclusively emgines , never complete motorcycle or moped. The company FBM (1951-1956) produced engines 75 cc 2 stroke 100cc 4T, 2T and 4T 125 cc, 160 cc 2T, 2T and 4T 175 cc, 200 cc 4T, which were sold to many motorcycle manufacturers.

Often the engines were personalized with the logo of the manufacturer of motorcycles. Shortly before the close of the FBM, in 1956, it was produced engines 48cc 2T P> "Robin" to 2:03 gears. Even in this case, it should be recalled that the FBM never produced complete moped, but only motori.completi.

After the closing of the FBM, the two riettivi former common shareholders agreement, smaltirono stocks of FBM marked engines and then each produced marked engines with its own brand, using FBM projects, including projects not yet realized. In fact, many FB Minarelli and Franco Morini engines Engines, in many models are almost identical.

Some interesting facts: the only complete motorcycles which produced the Minarelli engines, were a small series of 60 cc racing. Franco Morini was the nephew of Alfonso Morini, but among the company Franco Morini engines and Moto Morini, there was not any technical or commercial collaboration. The motorcycle engines and motorcycles of the fifties and sixties, were derived engines or identical to Franco Morini Motors engines. There was a chord between the two companies. Instead, the company Malanca, it is said that, after using Franco Morini engines engines until the early sixties, he began to produce their own copies without permission marked Malanca. True? False? No one has ever denied

motri Minarelli
hello, i have a moped and it will start and run for like 2min then shut down, then it wont start anymore. it will do the same thing the next day. what could be the problem.
New York

That sounds like a coil breaking down - are you getting spark after the engine stops? There are a number of technical sites on two-stroke engines, some of which are listed here:

hello, this is what my moped looks like. yes there still is a spark after the moped shuts down. someone told me that the carb might be pluged but i cleaned it 3 times. my tank is rusty.

  • Check that there is fuel flowing to the carbie, and also check the plug colour after it stops. If the plug looks rather white, that could indicate a main bearing seal problem.

i finally got the moped running. the problem was that my tank was rusty and the filter in my carb was totally pluged. i cleaned it and it fired right up. the pic i sent you was of a moped like mine, i will send you pics of mine some time. it is in very good condition and i would like you to tell me how much i can sell it for.

August 25, 2002
Perhaps you could help me, I saw your posting about Minarelli parts and wondered if you had any sources.

I have a 1973 (or4) Gitane/Testi with a Minarelli p6 compact system engine almost complete and mostly original, I need very few parts, eg front mudguard and stays, left hand (or both) pedals, and rear shocks, that's about it! I also have a few parts, mostly new and boxed, but I would like more information about parts sources if you have any.

I'm UK based and I know only very few of these were imported here so I think mine is perhaps very rare here.So please tell me where I might get any parts.

thank you for your time, please e mail me by return or at zacfurther at yahoodot com -- yours faithfully -- Zac

*Wanted* I would like information on a three wheel moped, or bike, I'm not sure what to call it. It is painted orange, (I feel it is factory paint), has a seat that is about three feet across and will seat two people side by side. It has an orange painted wire basket the width of the seat in back of the seat. It has an Italian motor that says "Minarelli G521039 Made in Italy" and a decal on the frame that says "Trike", the tires are "Carlisle Easy Ride". The handle bars come up in the middle to steer, and you peddle to start the engine. I would like to know how old it is, what it was used for, and where it was made. I can send a picture if you like. Please send information to: larry329 at netconx.net

I don't know if this will help you any or not but my husband works on small engines . Today he received a bike like we had never seen before . I always try to find info on the computer about things to help him , sometimes . It is a Motori Minarerlli . It is made in Italy . There is a basket behind the seat but the seat , itself , is like that of a bicycle . When I saw the picture of yours , I could tell that yours was a much older model because the one that we are working on is more modern looking . No word Trike and the seat is more modern . You can tell that everything on it is original . I can't find any place on the web where one can buy parts . I was just surprised to find yours .

Motori Minarelli is still in existence, The Aprilia RS50, The Macal us the Minarelli AM6 engine. Parts for these bikes are easily attainable either in race form from polini or other brands. I have a Macal, with a 50cc that is capable of over 125 kil/hr or 80 Mil/hr, then with a 75cc engine I am able to achieve speeds of 140 kil/hr or just under 90mil/hr. This is with my own port modifications, and a 19 dellorto carb, and a polini expansion chamber with a modified stinger. These engine are far superior to any engine in the sixe range, even the Honda NSR50.

RE: mac Minarelli 125cc kart racing engine
I am considering using the 6 speed 125 k125v motor in a Honda mtr frame. I am looking at running in the 125cc vintage classes here in north America. However, I do not know the history of when this motor was first used in competition. The motor is very strong and there are many parts interchangeable with both Rotex and Yamaha. I would appreciate any information, documentation or photos that might show that this motor was used in motorcycle racing applications prior to 1980. I may be reached at my web site - unlimitedreplications.com [404]

Back in 1977 I owned a moped with a Moto Minarelli engine called a gitane (small "g"). This was the last of the real performance mopeds here in the UK. With approaching 10BHP it was capable of a real 65mph (everyone used to say they could do that on their Honda's Yamaha's etc).

What I know about this bike was that the engine was made by Motor Minarelli who supplied many other mopeds at that time and the bike was made by a separate company in Italy. The company were still trading several years later (not in the UK) under the name Testi (Not a bike you would want between your legs in the English speaking world).

My bike was a stripped down racer (don't laugh) although there was a low rider and a full race replica with full fairings.

I still can't stop reminiscing about my youth on the fastest moped in the whole of the UK at least the Goring area of Oxfordshire

A great engine....but as they have been out of business for years, parts are like hens teeth to find. The 70s Indians were the most common place to find these engines.....in 75/125/175 cc sizes. The 50s were Morini.The 100s were Fuji/Xenoah. -- DSNTCMPUTE at aoldot com

The Carabela factory in Mexico city started making bikes around 1960 using Minarelli engines, 50 cc, 100 cc. Later, around 1966 they made the complete motorcycles, the engines were all two stroke 66cc, 100cc, 125cc, 175cc, 200cc, 250cc, and there was a two cylinder 350 that was originally the Jawa 350 with a good suspension and larger heads.

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

The only other company in Mexico that made bikes was Islo, and they started with the Sachs engines 50cc, 100cc, 175cc and 250cc, and later made the whole bikes.

This company is gone too.

I have read with interest the page on the Itom. I am the Editor and Press Secretary of the UK based Racing 50 Enthusiast Club. We specialize in racing 50cc motorcycles of the Classic period from the mid 1950s to 1974. At present we can have on the start line ITOMs, Minarellis, Kreidlers, NSU, Garelli, Motobi etc. They either race competitively or Parade.

I have #1 1967 Mk VIII and a 1971 Mk IX Itom, a Spondon Minarelli 50cc racer and a 3speed hand change MOTOBI 50cc racer. All of these racers are undergoing preparation for the new season but when complete I will send photos and information. I have information on the ITOM models and would be happy to answer questions, knowledge and information allowing for readers of this page.

If any reader wishes to join the club (we have members in Canada, USA, Holland, France, Australia and Italy) please ask them to send me an email to confirm interest.
