Ducati cucciolo - Rapida
Este é uma das minhas clássicas. Como podem observar esta equipada com um
motor Ducati Cucciolo (Ducati T50) a 4 tempos 48cc e o quadro foi fabricado
pela Rápida em Olhão (Portugal) em 1954... Possui 1.5 HP com um consumo
de 1 litro aos 100 Km, 2 velocidades com selecção manual e embraiagem
banhada a óleo.. atinge facilmente os 40 km/h mas não mais.. é uma
autentica raridade pois apenas 30 foram construídas com este quadro e
nenhuma é igual pois eram construídas a maneira do comprador e com o
motor que ele quisesse. Restaurada por mim a 4 anos.
This is one of my classics. As you can see its equipped with a Ducati
Cucciolo (Ducati T50) 4-stroke 48cc and the frame was manufactured by
Rapida in Olhão (Portugal) in 1954 ... It has 1.5 HP with a consumption of
1 liter per 100 km, 2-speed with manual selection and clutch bathed in oil
.. easily reaches 40 km / h but no more .. is a genuine rarity since only
30 were built with this framework and no equals since they were built the
way the buyer and the engine he wanted. Restored by me four years.
Historic vehicle Torpedo V4 1909
Motocykl vyroben v jediném exempláři v letech 1908-1909 firmou Trojan &
Nagl sídlící v Kolíně. Pravděpodobně nebyl nikdy prezentován na
veřejnosti a o jeho dalším osudu nejsou žádné zprávy. Neobvyklá
konstrukce o objemu 1600 ccm je dána zdvojením dvouválce téže značky.
Dochována pouze jediná nekvalitní fotografie, ze které se vycházelo
při stavbě repliky.
Motorcycle was made in a single copy in 1908-1909 by Trojan & Nagl, from
Kolín. Probably has never been presented to the public and his fate isnt
known. Unusual design of four-cylinder engine with capacity of 1600 ccm is
given by doubling two-cylinder engine from the same brand. Only one
low-quality photo survived from theese times and it was used to build a
1915 Henderson Motorcycle Model E
1915 Henderson Motorcycle with modern rims and tires. It has later 1918-19
front forks, which is all I had at the time. I will change these when I
paint later. This bike was rebuilt to ride in the 2010 Motorcycle
Cannonball which I did not participate. Runs beautifully, with plenty of
power to climb hills and get up with traffic. Wonderful ride!
