I want to build a bike just like this, I think this is the nicest moped build I've ever seen and I have some questions!
Bike looks awesome! Where did you get your handle bars from?
Added a pull start to this minarelli. The starter clutch plates fail easily and are getting harder to get, so I adapted a pull start for it. Works awesome.
I have since mounted a hydro disc brake to the rear on this build. The 5 inch drums just don't cut it. The hydro brake mount is welded to the spacer on the axle so it slides with the wheel as the chain is tightened.
Did you have a rear brake on this bike? if so where to you mount it?

This is beautiful, sir. I have a few questions for you about this build regarding the powdercoating, shaving, and hardwiring procedures. Can you please shoot me an email so I can ask you a few questions? It would be an awesome help, as I am new to the whole moped thing. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This bike is so sick. I'm glad to see the name changed! ;)
Dave, this bike turned out great! Well done!
Some build notes:

tank and forks painted
(lite pinstriping coming later)

Cylinder =stock - port matched
all cables, wires, and fuel line are raced thru the frame for extra clean look

Oh yea, Thanks to the folks (Dan and Jed) at 1977 for help and many of the parts on this build
Standard maguro controls with some foamy grips. nice and soft. :-)
