It's been a while...

I have not added new posts in almost a year - shame on me - but I was mostly working on my Solex fleet during the last 12 months. 

I plan on restarting the Bicizeta this year and ride it, so watch this space.

Meanwhile, I found on Ebay Italy a Go-Kart which looks factory made with a Zanetti Engine similar to that of the Bicizeta - I grabbed some pictures from the site - it looks like fun

Transmission Belt - Cinghia Dentata 124L

After some research and without actually opening my engine yet, I found out that the transmission belt type which is described as 'Cinghia Dentata 124 L' in the manual, means that this is a '124L' type of belt, and not 124 teeth. 

This belot is actually quite easy to find. I bought a Gates in 0.5" (inch) width, they are also available in 0.75" and 1" - extract of the original manual is below:


 

Here are some pictures of the belt I bought for a few US $, Send me pics of your Zanetti Bicizeta by sending me an email at zanettic50@gmail.com

Scooter et Cyclomoto - Mars 1969 - N 196

I have found a copy of the March 1969 french magazine 'Scooter et Cyclomoto' which includes a fairly thorough test of the Bicizeta. It includes all sorts of test, speed, braking, with two different users of different weight.. it's interesting to see how detailed the review is. I am including a scan of each page below

Original Ad

Today, i want to share an add for the Bicizeta that was advertising the moped when it came out - it is in Italian, but gives you an idea of how it was pitched. Click on the image for a full resolution 600dpi picture

The Argentinian brother

It appears that the Bicizeta was produced in Argentina under the name 'Pumita' in the city of Cordoba. I saw some pictures on some Argentinian website, including the below which was restored by Jorge Ferreiro in 2008

If you have information regarding those, please contact me!



I have not posted anything in a while now, I am however still on the lookout for information. There is no indication in the engine manual I have of the specification for the drive belt between the engine clutch and the roller. If you have any information, please send me an email!!

As usual and like Tony from Belgium a few weeks ago, send me pics of your Zanetti Bicizeta by sending me an email at zanettic50@gmail.com
