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

Today, Thomas from Neum√ľnster (close to Hamburg), Germany, was king to send me two picture of his newly acquired blue Bicizeta, and it's a beauty! It's a 1968 and I can't wait to hear from Thomas when it will be running!

Bici's new shoes

As it seems impossible to locate the proper Pirelli Mini Motor tires that should be what was the original mount on the Bicizeta, I have opted for some Michelin, white walls ribbed type Y tires. They are the same size and originally made for the Velosolex 5000 which uses the same size tire. Which is perfect because I found some NOS and just received them.

Roller Transmission Belt

One person reached out to me to have the reference of the roller transmission belt. I actually do not have this information and would be interested in it myself. I am asking left and right but if you have the information, send me an email at

Per the engine manual page 34, it says that it is a belt 124 L, but that's all I have, 124 teeth, but which size or reference?? The Book says F1.0352 but that must be a Zanetti internal reference.
