Help required for restoring Fury 175 gp

My friend, you might be to know that the Germans not invented the Moped — even invented the name That was because, after the they were at first in making motorcycles no larger 50cc. that restriction only a very short but during that time the new became very popular. A was looked for, and it was agreed Moped for MOtor velociPED, motorized bicycle in French Later the term was used for PEDals, once bikes kick start were (which were then Mokick).

In Germany once existed a large number of makers of of which Zundapp, Kreidler and were only the largest. many MANY brands own frames and used slot-in such as Zundapp’s immensely CombiMot (on which Zundapp’s actual moped, the Combinette, was or a whole range of Sachs You can even find mopeds firms like Miele otherwise known for washing

Only due to the HUGE popularity of vehicles in Germany they sweeping whole Europe, non-German manufacturers producing for the market first, then to sell in their own country

The concept went around the as did the German-made mopeds — rode Zundapp in Australia and the for example, and manufacturers there suit — and finally the that truly mobilized was born and managed to outlive all, Honda’s legendary Cub which was first made in and ist still being made virtually unchanged, over 60 of them already!

In Germany, it all began, meanwhile the manufacturers in an arms race — faster, faster, so much the authorities had to start restricting new classes were born, the moped suddenly was only to go 40 km/h and everything else was a class now requiring a driving and even later another new even slower, was born for the — the Mofa.

And as the original ones became too (as mentioned in the late 70’s an 50cc easily exceeded 100 some exceeded 120 km/h) the was scrapped altogether in favour of a new with more power but a speed limit to 80 km/h. And since the popularity has declined, as the fun was and truly out. Foreign particularly the Japanese, overran the with their cheap and one by one the traditional German manufacturers

Zundapp being the last of the big while Hercules managed to on because they also bicycles. Hercules in a sense still exist — have been bought up by previous engine supplier which is now the company’s name.

In days, Germans ride more than ever because of the insane petrol in that country (where 85% of the price is tax!) many can’t afford to use a car, 50cc’s are popular to whizz in citys, nowadays these are Taiwanese scooters (rolling as they are called) that are sold in supermarkets and the like, are easy to ride and a car driving still allows to ride at a speed no higher than 45

Germany may produce some of the and/or fastest cars in the but Germany will probably be the first country where can afford to use one any longer as the taxes going skyward. one of the reasons for me to say bye to that country and vow never to
