Can anyone tell me if you can get a gas tank for the 1980 Minirelli moped?

I don't believe any mopeds were sold under the Minarelli name in the United States. Minarelli manufactured moped engines which were installed on a large variety of moped models manufactured by various companies. There are, therefore, a bunch of different of gas tanks hooked up to the Minarelli V1 engine depending on the bike.

You need to figure out the brand of the moped before looking for the fuel tank. Got a picture?

Pacers came with Franco Morini motors.

Before we can answer your question, we need to see a photo of the bike.

Can you post one?

Lar is right. All Pacers had the Morini motor. I put a tire on something about 2 years ago that had a Minarelli. I see very few mopeds other than Tomos here. I don't think as many mopeds were sold in Georgia as in Florida.
