60's Atco

Just taken ownership of this beauty(?).

  

From lots of Googling and this site I think it's a 14" made in 1960/1.

Most obvious things it is missing are an exhaust and the recoil starter. It came with a bit of knotted rope so the missing starter isn't a big issue... 

I've Googled the engine a bit and I think it's called a Villiers lightweight 50cc but I'm not sure what model number that makes it.

Any idea where I might get a silencer to fit this engine? It looks like there are 3 studs shared between both the inlet and exhaust manifolds so I think it the flange needs to be a particular shape.  

Richard.

Hi Richard, 

Hi Richard, 

Snap

 

Just about to start my restoration too. I have a slight advantage with having all the parts. Although I'm struggling with the pull start at the minute, a thread will be created . Hopefully we may be able to help each other on the way. Mine will probably be a slowish restoration, even slower if I don't figure out the pull start!

 

Good luck
