Hello everyone. I owns 1986 Honda C50 LAC. Does anyone know anyone can rebuild engine and auto box. Mines working fine. I just want it rebuild and fresh. I lives in Leeds. I would be happy to drive further.
I remember I saw the advert about rebuilding c50 to c90 in Barnsley. Couldn't find the phone number. Does anyone have their number?

Hi welcome to the club, the lac has some parts that are no longer available so a total rebuild is not always possible .A rebuild would only be crankshaft and cylinder/piston.
The LAC is a moped but not to the current standards and as such is not 16 legal .Fitting a larger engine is a problem as well, DVLA will be a pain and if the bike is still registered as a moped it would restrict roads you can travel on.
Alan Cf rebuilds engines he is on here ,but it may be cheaper to buy a pit bike engine :?

If its running fine i,d be tempted to just find another LAC Engine and have that rebuilt as a spare
As mentioned some parts are non longer available.
If it ain't broke dont fix it :D
If you've the licence for a bigger cc bike the upgrade to 90/110 will make it a much better ride.
Iv'e changed a moped to motorcycle with DVLA in the 1990s without any issues but changing it back would probably be difficult

Thank you for replies.
I was hoping anyone give me phone number of Barnsley rebuilt. I phoned him 2 or so years ago. Now I couldn't find him ( I forget his name) on internet. As long as I remember he put the advert about rebuilt c50 c70 c90 for £125 parts not included on ebay. Hope it might joy your memory.
