Mine has a sachs engine yes but the one on the picture seems to have Simonini’s own engine.

Cant find any parts on eBay or anything so im guessing ill have to make a filterbox and cage from scratch

I reckon eventually you may find one on Ebay but may have to wait till something shows up and maybe costly.

As you say though it maybe possible to craft/ create one and alot cheaper.
Very cool bike with the Sachs 7 speed! Love these 1970's bikes like this- so rare and unusual.

"Lurked" on this forum for too many years..................therefore am now a New Member! Interesting thread. Had a Monark 125 ISDT Replica back in late 1970's. 6 speed Sachs fitted as standard but toyed with the idea of fitting the 7 speed when it became available. If I remember correctly it used the same mountings as the 7 speed. I think Simononi went down the route of manufacturing/fitting their own engine as the 6 speed 125cc Sachs was getting a bit "long in the tooth" and soon after they did this Sachs released the 7 speed? I don't think the bike pictured has the Sachs 7 speed, looks more like Simonini's own motor. Is it possible the bike in question has been (or was in the process of being) retro-fitted with the 7 speed Sachs? Might be a clue as to why it requires an airbox? If this is possible I think your best bet is to manufacture/mod a box as getting a "correct" airbox might be misleading". Just a thought. Anyway, always been a fan of these small Italian manufacturers ( of this time), creating interesting, stylish stuff with great passion ( check out Ancillotti etc, etc.). Years later had Moto Gori trials with 280cc Rotax disc-valve motor. Hope this is a useful first post?

The -77 i have at home has the sachs 7 speed as original, and my dad actually won a title racing 50cc Ancilottis back in the day!

The bike in the picture is a -79 i think when they stopped using Sachs as you said and moved on to using their own engines

Interesting to hear of your father winning a title on Ancillotti 50. I believe the 50 class was quite popular across Europe,
unfortunately not in the UK. Maybe it was even more popular in Sweden? Going a bit off-piste but have included pic of Monark 50 (not mine). Apparently this bike was a works entry in the 1972 Baja 1000 (or whatever it was known as then) and finished 12th motorcycle overall! Just goes to show what a "50" was capable of. Always loved that Monark colour scheme!

Simonini used Hiro motors in the late 70s and early 80s and that looks like a Hiro reed valve motor in the picture. Italy is your best chance for finding spare parts. Best wishes for finding what you are looking for!

Nice bike!
I guess you have talked to Bengt Lagerblad at Delta Racing?
They raced Simonini and might still have some parts or he knows where to look
