Romet 750

The Romet 750 of the Pegaz series was produced in 1974−1976 by Zakłady Rowerowe Romet in Bydgoszcz.

A development of the earlier Pegaz 700 and 705 mopeds, it differed mainly by the improved Type 017 engine produced by Zakłady Metalowe Dezamet in Nowa Dęba. Preceded by the Type 010 engine, the arrangement of ribs on the cylinder and head has been changed to improve air circulation, the automatic clutch was replaced by a two-speed gearbox and an upgraded two-plate clutch from the Komar moped. Gear shift was controlled by a pull rod from the handlebar controls, also from Komar. Bicycle pedals were replaced with a kick start lever mounted on the left side of the engine. The decompressor valve in the head was deemed unnecessary, so that too was removed. The design of the telescopic fork was simplified and the adjustment range of the seat and handlebars was improved. The lightweight motorcycle was suitable for solo work only, with a maximum load of 120 kg. The flat 4.5 litre fuel tank was positioned above the rear wheel included a storage compartment.

The next model in this series was the Romet 760 Polo.

Produced 1976-1980

The Romet 760 Polo was derived from the 700 series mopeds produced by Zakłady Romet in Bydgoszcz, production began in 1976.

Similar to the Romet 750 Pegaz model, it had an appearance which somewhat resembled the polo bikes (piłkę polo). It had elongated handlebars and a longer tank borrowed from the Komar Sport moped placed between the steering head and the saddle. The newly designed humpback seat had a metal grab bar adjacent to the carry rack. The 760 Polo was powered by Dezamet Type 017 engine delivering 1.7 h.p. Technically it was otherwise the same as the 750 model.
