I present to you my own T50

Post  Duckrider on Sun 8 Jun - 23:15

I bought it 10 years ago with 45000 kilometers.
I turn it to pieces and I rebuild it from the beginning.
Unfortunately I have no photos to show the previous state.
So, here we are now, with 54600 Kms







Made in Japan ...









49cc, small engine less gas







6Volts regulator







A lot of work, i did not buy many new parts, i decide to rebuild the old ones, for example the handlebar switches, i paint them in black and paint after the white signs by hand.

Admin drgaz, i am trying to find a connection between Brava and C320 coupe , but i can't find one  Laughing 

My Brava is the only one 100/16V full extra in Greece. She has the classic problems as all the cars from Italy.
But i have this car for 14 years and it has only 65000kms.

Where is the Diy section in this forum?

Thank you once more for your nice answers.

Do you know where i can post a ''do it yourself '' for my T50?

A Fiat engineer, what a life, i did the same but for aircrafts.
Last years i work on C-130 as an radar engineer.
I like working with everything is a machine.
I can't imagine myself without a tool in hands  Laughing

Very nice restoration, I would think that the climate in Athens meant little rust to deal with, unlike UK.

JohnW thank you for your for your kind words.

Yes you are right, we did not have problems with rust. Only owners living close to the sea.
I had a small problem at the connection of the back fender , but not serious.

The problem here are the high temperatures during summer, we use oils with SAE 15W-50 or 20W-50 to prevent problems with the engine lubrication.

Admin drgaz, F104 is not an airplane, It was a rocket in the form of aircraft for its time.
When I joined the HAF was still in use this wonderful in design and performance aircraft.
I worked with Mirage F1, and Mirage 2000EG, now after 30 years i prefer to work on easy carriers like C-130 Hercules and not on fight Planes.

Talking of engine lubrication the Fiat Brava relies on a spray bar that sits above the cam shaft and sprays oil on to the cam lobes and bearings in the head the holes block and course the cam to wear the head out. worth checking out easy job.

Really nice restoration you have done, looks very nice in metallic green, is it a standard colour for Greece. Where did you get the decals that are below the seat.

adespinthank you for your kind words.

When it was time for the painting of the Green Caterpillar , I had begun to search for the original color.
Unfortunately the local delegation could not give me the code nor color.
So I went to a car paint shop using spectrometer found that fit the color οf an old car, the code is Ford 935 Green  :d\\'-\\':

Sorry, i forget this ...

These graphics are not removed when I painted.
Before moving to painting knew that are hard to find.
So I decided to cover it with tape and paint the color after I removed the tape and I painted the glaze.

I've found graphics in Greece here:

, but I don't know if he has the specific one, these are not genuine but reprinted on vinyl.
