I am looking for a Morini engine were can I purchase one?
Morini is no longer making engines so used is the only source for TRUE morinis.
But the clones are just as cool.
Great ,thank you
Do you want an air cooled or water cooled?
There is also the KTM clone..... http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/KTM50-AIR-ENGINE/602744_627840002.html
I want Air cooled
When I first saw the motor i said "what a great price then I said "Wow, shipping is .39 more than the motor".
I know, that's crazy. But the price overall is decent.
call them, full of knowledge
I've been looking around for a air cooled morini too, clone or not. My trouble is $500 is the cheapest I've found and that's a fair bit of $ for me to drop, especially on something that's a more or less a hobby to me.
Anyone know anywhere cheaper? Anyplace sell used ones? Thanks
Look for KTM 50cc bikes for used motors.
Lem, Cobra also used the same engines in a few models.
Be aware, $500 is about standard for these gems unless you take a chance buying used. I prefer to hear and see a bike before I buy it, but some have gotten decent deals fron fleabay on used engines and bikes.
You can find out an awful lot of information here;
ktm uses ktm, lem uses morini, and cobra uses cobra motors. early ktm's used morini s-5's anything 2001+ is what you want. morini's are masterpieces but parts are iffy, cobra's are rocket$$$$, and real ktm's are bulletproof. buy the whole bike running and you got everything you need down to the chain. china ktm's are chineese ktm's nothings written in stone but after a $370 tomar clutch, a stock 3hp morini s-6E aint so bad
1997 franco morini engine any good?
Yep. Look around the bottom of the motor or cylinder for the model number. Let me know and I'll help with the info.
I just ordered one of these a few days ago... https://www.treatland.tv/franco-mor...start-eng-p/franco-morini-complete-engine.htm Anybody know anything about this one? Info online is very scarce at best and it was used in the 1980 - 1982 Motobecane EW50 dirtbikes. I got it because I like the CVT transmission as well as the 70cc upgrade kit... Still hadn't decided on what type bike to put it in but I'm leaning toward a cruiser frame or a large frame mountainbike.
I think you done good. just find a pipe to fit and your good to go. looking forward to the build.
I haven't purchased the dirt bike yet but the owner said its a 1997 franco morini with 2 bolt manifold on the cylinder no reeds? I am looking for some thing for all out speed ....
I just want to purchase a good motor to start a good foundation
Some of the older Morinis had reed valves in the cylinder so they look like piston port engines from the outside... I know the one I just ordered I thought was a piston port but after finally finding a manual for it it shows a reed valve right at the inlet port on the cylinder. The newer ones are case inducted so it looks more "proper"
