Re: My 1966 AD1T

Rear brakes I ordered some rear brake shoes from Juergen Kamm.GaLabau@t-online.de £54.00 IMG_8433.jpg These are unbranded, the 'meat' on the shoes is 7mm thick. The old pads below still had meat on them, about 4mm, but it looks like there are three different brands of pad on the rear, if you look at...

Re: My 1966 AD1T

Re: My 1966 AD1T

Ok, I think found it, it is this one: Immagine 2022-05-20 151047.jpg I phoned an official Piaggio reseller just now and it sadly confirms that part does not exists anymore. But, you may be lucky: if you are willing to share the exact measures of the one you dismounted I'll call again and will let y...

Re: My 1966 AD1T

@MarioNYC - The battery tray is wider than the original, I am trying to source a 6v gel battery like the original but it's proving hard work, for the moment I am using a motorbike battery cable tied down! I've checked the manual and I cannot find any adjustment mechanism on the rear brakes, which is...

Re: My 1966 AD1T

With the weather being dry for once I took the Ape for a drive round where I live, in total I covered about 5 miles F<) She drove well and put quite a few smiles on peoples faces as I zipped passed. I called to get some petrol £1.65 per litre :(( IMG_8372.jpg The next job on my list was to fit the n...

Re: My 1966 AD1T

Progress update I've fitted all the new cables now, they were quite quick to thread through the frame if you use the other cable as a draw-cable attaching the old and new cables together end-to-end with gaffer tape B-) The gear cables were a little trick to adjust, the gears are a little hit and mis...

Re: My 1966 AD1T

Another update C-; I've had the Ape running ok, driving it round some of the quieter roads near home, there is still a problem with it starting so I order some parts for the carb. I've documented each of the parts I have bought hopefully it will help others who are rebuilding a Dell'orto shb 25 -22....

Re: My 1966 AD1T

I was on holiday in Italy a couple of weeks ago and I used the opportunity to source parts for the Ape, as it turns out none of the car parts shops stock parts for a 1966 Ape even the Piaggio dealer doesn't have parts....oh well. Yesterday another parcel of parts arrived C-; This time from a company...

Re: My 1966 AD1T

Other news After spending months arguing with the DVLA I've finally go the Ape registered! I also managed to find a place who make legal plates the same size as an Italian plate! The story behind this is that when the sell came to de-register the Ape in Italy he wasn't allowed as the Ape did not hav...

My 1966 AD1T

I thought I would document my Ape and the rebuild / fixes that happen along the way! I have always liked the Ape, ever since I saw one donkeys years ago when visiting Lake Garda when I was 15, some 25 years late my wife persuaded me to buy one! The first one we looked at in April 2021 was MP550 is v...
