Hi folks. I'm David from Bristol, UK. Very Happy

This is my first post but it certainly won't be my last. I am about to attempt a restoration of my wife's 1982 CV80 that last turned a wheel in 1988 when her motorcycle licence expired. It has been stuck in her sister's garden shed ever since. After nearly 25 years it is looking a bit sorry for itself and the engine has seized up. It's my winter project and I am sure I will be needing a little help along the way.

I was amazed to find this forum and so many people interested in keeping these little scooters running. Thank you all in advance for your patience in dealing with my dumb questions. Embarassed

Wow....that's a lot of time spent in a shed. Best of luck for the restoration. Hopefully you can post up some pics.

Thank you for having me!

Just recently took over my mom-in-laws Sachs Hercules CV 50, right after the vehicle was part of an exhibition in Upper-Austrias Federal Museum.

Hi everyone,

I recently came across a quirky old scooter in the local classifieds for $100 advertised as "not running, for spares". I'd discovered this site while researching about it, and all the helpful information here convinced me it to get it!

It's a 1982 CV80 Beluga, and it was surprisingly complete (but had been left outside for many years). Cleaned out the carburettor and the fuel system, topped up the fuel and oil, and it miraculously started!

It still doesn't move, though - when I get on it and turn the throttle, it feels like it is slipping, bogs down, and the engine cuts out. Am going to try cleaning out the variator/clutch/drive belt and install 6g rollers to see if it'll help.

Some photos:

Hello all,

I just started re-building my 1986 CV80 and wanted to share my progress. I am taking pictures along the way and will do my best to upload to this forum.
