“First introduced in 1966 this slim and elegant single cylinder two stroke developed a healthy 9.3hp @ 7500rpm with the help of a disc valve induction system and was universally popular as a commuter model. Its sporty styling with slim mudguards ad attractive candy colour schemes, available on later models, ensured its ongoing sales success. The very crisp two stroke delivered strong acceleration and a top speed of 65mph-75mph making this 83kg lightweight ideal for city and out of town commutes. This was one of the finest machines of its type at that time and ran on with styling changes until the late 1970’s.” http://www.cmsnl.com/a100_model13054/info/
The bike rode pretty well when I got it but had scruffy faded red paint and needed a tidy up. Have repainted the tin-ware gloss black and replaced the pitted exhaust, rear shocks and seat and various other bits from ordering parts online (same bike is still in production in SE Asia so all part available). Still to do is a 12V conversion, and replacing the ugly speedo with a neater cafe racer item.
