Welcome to the group Pogo, you're English is just fine!
You've got a beauty there, has the seat been recovered?
The one's I've had and have are different, as in they had stitching.

Hi roadcap,

thanks for the welcome . indeed my beluga is cute , the man who owned it before made a new paint years ago , and stored this scoot for many years without using it , dont know why ......

The seat is original , not recovered , but the "Yamaha" behind is almost gone , maybe I will make a new paint one day. Actually they do have stiching , but it is not apparent.

I believe the Europeans got a different seat than us Canadians. I think the fabric and stitching are different and the Euro seats have a spot for the toolkit.

Pogo, welcome to the site! Your scoot looks amazing! You should pick up some Yamaha decals from your local dealer to complete the look. When you scooter was repainted the guy mustn't have bothered to replace the decals.

P.S. that's interesting that you don't have the glovebox, only the storage slot. I thought all European CV80's had the glove box.

hello chaps,

been a lurker here for a little while, after i bought cooperp's cv80 from her. but a lurker i shall be no more. the scoot needs a little work so expect some updates as i repair and modify her. and with the help of the forum it should be a relatively (fingers crossed) painless experience.

cheers

actually i'm a yank. cooperp was a member for about a day she had a question about pre-mixing the gas which was answered quite quickly. the auto injection system is probably broken and has since been circumvented.

I just signed up today.
About me: I'm from Montreal and have many hobbies and projects. I find scooters fun, but far down my list of priorities, so unfortunately I donít spend too much time in the garage or riding.
About my bike: The manual says itís a CV80J. Apparently, it started its life as a wedding gift, where an aunt tried it out and drove it into a wall. It was patched up and stored in an underground garage, when someone tried to steal it by drilling out the starter but the theft was stopped by another wall. So then (about 20 years ago), my brother and I bought it and Ďfixedí the forks with the leverage of a windsurfer mast. I rode it around one summer and had fun (especially when taking air whenever riding over manhole covers), and then stored it in my garage, only to take it out for the occasional spin around the block. About 5 years ago it refused to start, so last summer I removed the shellac from the carb and petcock and it ran fine (except for the pools of gas it would leave when stored without draining the tank). Today it refused to start unless I blew compressed air into the drainage tube of the carb (for extra gas goodness), so itís time for another carb clean. It has some rust due to humidity, but less than 5000 km. Everything seems to be original, except for gas and oil. (yes, tires, brake pads, brake fluid, lines, etc. probably all original). I donít think the Trans Am eagle in front is original, but I didnít put it there.
The future: I hope that one day I will have the time to register and insure and actually ride the bike further than around the block again, or I will sadly sell it.
I look forward to your feedback on the bike and for some encouragement to keep me interested in this project!

Hey all. Found this forum a while back when I was looking into a scooter because my roommate left and took the car. Just registered today because I finally took possession of my new CV 80 today. It's got a manufacture date of 4/84 and I picked it up for a song. 975 original miles.



Not sure what happened with the side panels, but you might notice that they say "YAMAMA" on them. The seat, VIN panel, engine parts and anywhere else that matters confirms it's a legit Yamaha, but for some reason those vinyl decals (probably self-applied some years ago) have the pretty funny mix-up.

I'm going through the arduous Chicago titling/licensing process now (need to take a safety course to get my "L" endorsement, and the seller didn't have the title so I need to prove it isn't stolen, re-title and plate, etc.) so I probably won't get to drive it for a month (aside from some clandestine test rides up and down the alley behind my house, of course), so I'm interested in fixing it up and making it awesome for the day I can take it out on the street. Probably going to replace the front mirrors, maybe re-cover the seat, and go from there. I haven't owned a scoot since the mid-80s 50cc Honda Spree I had when I was kid, so it'll be a learning experience all over again.

That's where you guys come in! I look forward to browsing the site and getting your input.
