copy-saturno

Post by geert pardon » Sun Dec 03, 2006 7:03 pm

I just saw the pictures of the new cagiva mito 500.(husky 510 engine in mito frame)
it should have 60+bhp and the weight only 133 kg.
this sounds prommissing and the bike looks good.
but after all it is only a copy of an allmost 20 year old saturno. (but a good try)

Hi, Hi,

nothing special.
12 years ago there was a lonely Mito framework and a lonely Nordwest engine meeting together, see what happened:

The story about the bike:

The bike was modified in 1991 by a Gilera dealer using a brandnew Cagiva Mito framework and a used Gilera Nordwest engine. Bike was even legalized by German TÜV authority for road use but unfortunately never registered.

With around 380 km on the speedo the Mito was stored for around 10 years in the cellar of the bikeshop covered with dust. I was informed about the bike by a fried who knows the dealer well but it took same time to convince him to sell the bike. In 2004 I could welcome the Mito in my own workshop.

To check and to make sure that the bike will be as per my own specifications I had to clean and to dismantle framework and engine completely.

I renemed the bike to CAGIVALERA as a combination of the words “CAGIVA” and “GILERA”.

Engine is a series NORDWEST 560 cm³ motor inclusive electric starter to make the bike reliable. Ignition system is standard too besides the not installed rev. limiter. Inlet ducts are modified slightly to fit a twin carb Mikuni THM 34 assembly with K&N filters. Exhaust system based on a PIUMA two in one pipework with a negligible damped muffler producing nicely deep toned 100 dB(A).

Carbs and exhaust system gives you a imagination of some more extra power but the bike was never testet on a Dyna for the real truth.
Frameworks front and rear damping components are modified for higher engine weight. Tire sizes are 110 front and 150 rear using Metzeler Sportecs which are good enough for dry and wet use. Bike handling is still similar to a 125 cm³ but without getting nervous on top speed. The bike runs only for track use and makes you smile at anytime.

At present there are three more Mito frames in the workshop waiting for engines but there are too many other projects to complete first.

...here is a not so lonely BMW F 650 engine in a Cagiva Mito Frame.
Bike is with TUEV (at least it got proper paperwork once :D ).

German road legal???

The Mito has a aluminium frame. How did you (both) fix the engine?
Everything by adapters and screws?
Or did you weld something at the frame?

Hi Joachim,

this one is not the only street legal one in Germany.
These engines had also been fitted in Aprilia RS 125 frames (also aluminium).

In my case I use the original rear engine connection (also die hintere Motoraufhaengung) for the swing arm (its a Husky swing arm - the Mito has a "banana swing" for left side chain drive - the F 650 has a right side chain drive.
For the front engine connection an adapter plate is used (here you adjust the actual position of the engine in the frame).
Top engine connection with a small aluminium pipe subframe, mounted with adaptor plates to the original frame.
