My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

So...I've been building this for the past few months. I finally finished with the assembly of it yesterday, minus some pegs or pedals...I haven't decided, and most likely a water pump since my thermosiphon setup isn't getting hot really...but there is quite a bit of pressure in the lines, so it's finding several joints like my water temp senor to weep out from. But as far as temperature wise...it hasn't seen above 230degrees F.

Now...all thats really left to do is tune and dial it in right and put tons of miles on it. This bike isn't going to be babied, and I built it to be my daily rider. Although, sometimes it's hard for me to leave it chained up outside.

A little back story, I got the bike with no engine. So, I decided that since this was one of my "dream" bikes, and I never thought I'd find one...that I would build a pretty decent engine from scratch, but still make it super reliable to be my daily rider.

The setup:

Heidenau K56 tires, 2.5" front, 2.75" rear

Full race Polini engine cases

70cc Polini H20 kit

19mm PHBG

Polini Radiator

Giannelli Sport Carbon exhaust

Doppler Clutch pulley

Malsossi Variotop variator

Polini engine spring

4 Pedal Boysen reeds

MVT internal rotor CDI

Replaced the internal front fork springs with others for better stiffness and adjusted it for the proper preload for my skinny ass. I went through several pairs before finding the right one for me.

Only other part that needs replacing is the rear shocks since they don't hold up well to city riding. I was thinking of ordering a pair of custom built Works Performance ones...but not for this bike as my daily rider. I already dumped the money for a pair on my race bike and I think a pair of Hagons will do just fine.

So...I present, Penelope Peugeot.

First day I got her.

Pretty much complete, with a different pipe on there.

Her setup, currently as of yesterday.

i heard stock carb goes just as fast

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Fine Seth...I changed the post to add the 19 PHBG for you.

nice colormatching on the cdi, you should consider those orange wheel inserts...

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

^no you shouldn't, that'll forever be the ugly motobrokass look. do not.

looks like a nice little motorcycle. way to bring it back to life.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

I'm actually taking off the orange MVT stickers. It's too blaring and I want to keep this bike low key. Although, it's kinda hard to do that anymore with that Giannelli pipe.

super clean, i approve

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Very nice. Very classy.

Did you ever consider M bars over clip-ons?

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Tim, I actually put on a pair of M-bars originally, but it just didn't look or feel quite right to me. With the M-bars on there, it just caused the look of the front end to be too high and disconnected from the rest of the bike.

The M-bars are generally my favorite handlebars on any moped, but just didn't feel quite right for this one. I had them on my Derbi Variant, and it was perfect in every way.

As of right now, the clip-on's feel great, but I do wish the seat was a tad lower. I'm thinking of picking up one of the 77' TSM seats to redo the seat foam with race foam and reupholster.

supa clean

Beautiful. Go with pedals, for easy parking in Brooklyn, and you won't have to push-start it with pedals, right? High comp engine on a crowded city street can be a pain in the ass to push start.

i challenge you to a race.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Andy, it's really not as hard to start as you would believe it to be. I only need maybe 5-10ft of pushing before I lean down on the back to get it started. I think it's because of the MVT CDI giving such a strong good spark, the bike just always wants to start.

I do however kinda want pedals just to keep a little bit of "moped" back into the bike.

Mr. Clay - I accept your challenge to a race. I say we meet halfway riding on the bikes...and whoever's bike is still running after that and win's the race...SHALL be VICTORIOUS!

Or...if you're coming to the Richmond rally, this is my one and only running bike right now. So we shall see then! God...I'm hoping not to break this kit at the rally seeing how I just finished building it. Oh well...it is a moped.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Hell yeah! top notch build!

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

sadly, i dont know if i will ever make it to an east cost rally now. im getting to old for such shenanigans. that being said, you should totaly come to the sac rally for the TSM THROWDOWN OF THE CENTURY...NAY...WILLENIUM.

and yes the mvt premium is so worth the money. i dont even really need the decomp. its currently making a mess all over my pretty cdi.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

I would love to go to a West coast rally.

And it's true...the MVT does magic. My liquid cooled head doesn't have decomp, so when building the bike...I was worried the whole time that it was going to be ridiculous to start and ride everyday...until I started it first time super easy. And now, it just starts every time within 2 seconds of pushing.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Nice work Larry!

I'm glad you got a Ganelli pipe! It's probably a better option than the Doppler.

If anyone was going to beat me in building a 70cc water cooled TSM, I'm glad it was you! Mine's at least a year away from completion. Till then, treat her nice and one day- you, Seth and I can ride through brooklyn all samsies.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Did you add pegs to it since the pictures? Feet are going to get lonely. This looks great - hope to see it in RVA.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Moped Game Sally Struthers /

ohhh cheeky custom swingam.. the stock 103 swingarm might be the worst concieved anything in the history of everything.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Adam - I have not beaten you in building a water cooled TSM...we shall see if i'll get my ass handed to me when yours is done. I've been contemplating about getting the Malossi boxed swingarm for the reason that it seems to have more room for the carb to sit.

I really want to put my 24mm Mikuni Flatslide on this bike to really get the most out of it...but since it is a daily rider, the fact that I would need to weld a intake that swung it out so I kick it all the time annoys me. But the Malossi swingarm just looks to have a little bit more room. Maybe even enough dare I say, to fit my 24 Flatslide?

Mick - I haven't put pegs on yet, I've been busy so I haven't been able to hop on the lathe and turn some down. Plus...my knurling tool didn't come in yet. I rode it the other day, and let me say that the 1.25" of pedal shaft next to the clutch pulley spinning at 12k rpm isn't easy to find nor is it nice to have your foot next to that.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Larry - consider square top for those custom pegs you make, if they are going on the pedal shaft. My homemade rounds pegs get spinny when I stand up on big bumps. You have to be careful not to slip off.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Thanks Mick, I'll keep that in mind to make 2 sets while I'm on the lathe already. Might as well take the pieces off and throw them on the mill to make a flat surface. Thanks man.

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

Larry,

What intake would you use to get that flatside carb on there? I have a flatside 24 Mikuni kicking around on my Gila e50 build. If you have an intake, we could mock it up on my TSM and see if there is room. I have Malossi cases though...

Re: My Liquid Cooled Peugeot TSM

As far as a intake for my bike, I was going to use the Polini SHA intake plate, bore that bitch out on the mill, and aluminum weld a matching tube with a decent wall thickness onto it to spigot mount to the 24 flatslide.

You actually might have some luck. I was lurking at Seth's TSM the other day, and saw that his intake on his Malossi cases actually offer a little bit more room since it doesn't angle up as much. But then again, the width and deep float bowls on the 24 Mikuni probably won't work either way.

I did however manage to get my Flatslide onto my PHBG intake just sticking it on for looks...but it's so big in that little spot, that it can't variate anywhere or it'll just hit the carb. I'm sure it can be done...but I'm just going to have to fanagle it to get it sitting within the subframe or at least in between the width of the frame.
