I thought those in the roady section might know this as since some of you predate mtb by some way you might have come across this 60's weirdness.
I have aquired a Co-op Commuter frame and fork which the Clark company of the IOM converted to moped status. Mine is frame and fork only and I hope to get it roadworthy as a bicycle. Problem is I can only find pictures, details of the Scamp moped.
Does anyone have any idea of what sort of spec it would have as a bicycle. Just simple things required such as wheel size, seatpost diameter if known, what sort of gearing etc
I'm a sucker for weird bikes and found this in ebays BMX section :?
Any help or directions to sources of info would be good.
Cheers
Velo

Apparently they're a wee bit heavy but they've got massive tyre clearance :D
