Vehicle Description

Motorcycle 1976 Casal K181

Bike Profile
I bought this bike back in 1977 while over in Portugal. I am not sure of the exact model but believe that it was a Casal K181. It was nothing more than a glorified moped disguised as a small motorcycle. The engine used in the bike was a copy of an engine built by Zundapp. Not many redeeming features about the bike. The brakes were useless, top speed of 45-50 mph
No oil injection, had to use pre-mixed fuel. While touring across Europe, maintenance was an everyday event. Yet day in and day out for 3 - 4 month it managed to haul my butt across most of southern Europe and parts of northern Africa. It did get incredible gas mileage.
