Talking 150 Rs is at home | Now with more pictures and a bit of the story behind the bike

Hello friends,

Few weeks ago I started researching for a classic MV as winter project. And after much up and downs, I finally brought home this beauty.

Just want to share with you guys. I started already testing everything, seems alright many parts. Since it's my first classic MV, I guess I will be around asking many mechanical questions hehehe.

Best regards,
Dong Xu

Thank you guys, already found this forum helpful with my previous research. Great info! Now the bike is teared apart for the initial check. Surely after putting the parts together there will be more pictures for you guys.

Alright! After a cold winter here in the south of Germany, and many hours in the garage with this bike. Finally the bike is ready. Well... almost ready.

Long story short:

- The bike was sitting for 20 years in the previous owner´s apartment as "deco bike"
- Luckly the bike was well cared, and no big issues with rust of any fossilized oil.
- Some parts were replaces ( kickstart spring, clutch plates, sparkplug, cables, exhaust collector, oil filter etc).
- The paint was in good shape, so it was only "cleaned and cared"
- For my surprise, the rear light socket was missing. The light unit was simply empty from inside.
- Break switch is still broken. (Should I replace it?)
- After some work, and many calls from my girlfriend for dinner because the time always flies when I am with this bike, the bike came back to life.

So far everything good, but there is a metallic "hammering" noise when I rev up (around +3000rpm I guess). The carb setting feels all good, and the bike pulls well at top gear, and stable at idle.

Here goes some pictures from the other day, hope you guys like it.

By the way, I have spent countless hours researching about this bike... It was sold as 150 RS, but there are few things that are not matching for me.

1. the handlebar is clearly not clip-on type, it looks rather like a GT 150 fork with a club-bar
2. on the engine it says GT XXXXXX, and the frame is stamped with GTS XXXXXX. I read that the early models were simply stamped with GT instead of RS.
3. the original papels of the bike is in Italian, ( I could help myself with it) but the handwriting is not really clear in some parts. It was first registered in 1960 as GT 150 (Sport) ?

What do you guys think?

Best,
Dong

Hi,

Difficult to say something about a noise by internet

You could check the valves clearance, and change the valve cover gasket : when the gasket is thick and hard, the head cover can act as "resonator" at some revs range.

A failing rod big end will do some noise at low revs and on charge.

Thanks GTW36, it could be the valves. I will have a look at them tomorrow. I set them at the factory clearance when the engine was cold. However I will take a look at them again. Maybe the valve gaskets are the problem here, since I could see the sparkplug was a bit oilly. Thanks for the tip. If so, maybe UK club has some parts hehe.
