my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

1977 puch newport, drove 4 hours to pick up this basket case.. got everything almost all the stock parts from a nice dude for $80..

1st pic - basket case

2nd my place of work

3rd final product

70cc kit, stuffed crank, 15mm bing, 22 tooth front sproket, 35 rear, 28mm header big boy stockish exhaust, new ebr forks.. eventually put clipons on there, and lowered the seat

painting the frame was horrible.. soo much rust, i had to soak it in that rust goo shit just to get it off.

Re: my first moped builld

skimped on the exhaust? why?

Re: my first moped builld

oh yeah, due to the throttle i was using, there was no run/off switch or light switch of any kind on the handle bars.. so i made this little box, one switch is kill, the other is to turn lights on/off for stealth mode. wires look pretty messy in this pic, but they cleaned up nicely and i tucked them away

liked the stock look, easily got up to 58 with this exhaust.. if only i put an expansion chamber pipe on there..

Re: my first moped builld

i'd remove the lame stickers - they don't make you go or look faster

Re: my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

already did =]

Re: my first moped builld

58..? KPH?

Re: my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

mph. but with that gearing it had horrrrible acceleration.

Re: my first moped builld

58 mhp with a stock pipe? that doesn't sound correct to me. video or it didn't happen.

Re: my first moped builld

Andrew Browning /

Either

A. Your GPS is set to KPH

B. Your the best tuner in the State

C. Your bike is vibrating so much , you cannot see the gps or speedo your reading

D. Your adding a few mph for good measure.

Re: my first moped builld

I swear to god, if you actually hit 58 on that FLAT GROUND with a stock pipe...i'll give you all 11 of my mopeds right now.

Re: my first moped builld

Andrew Browning /

It could be done. But not by that moped.

No offense.

Look don't you guys know he's lying ?

He is David christian the bad seller on the good vs bad seller list

Re: my first moped builld

Andrew Browning /

Oh in that case we wont spare feeling.

That thing is HIDEOUS looking

Re: my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

its not stock

Re: my first moped builld

Andrew Browning /

obviously

Stock Maxi's didnt sell cause they looked terrible.

Christ wrap it in duct tape or SOMETHING different

Re: my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

obviously the bike Isn't going to look GOOD, the whole point of the first build is, hey, I got a ped. I spent months learning how they worked, and built it piece by piece to a working condition. This again, was my FIRST moped, these pictures are 2+ years old and I've gone thru many more peds with time.

thanks for the no offence andrew.

and Ken, who are you? I don't know you, you don't know me, yeah I'm on the bad seller list because of what happened between myself and a few other mopeders 2+ years ago. Whats the point of bringing it up on a thread non related to selling anything other then being a troll.

Re: my first moped builld

different bars, and i agree puch stock pipes SUCK. no way you hit 58

thats

Re: my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

did you not read that I replaced the bars and that's not a stock pipe? =/

Re: my first moped builld

Andrew Browning /

Its all just typing.

Your bike does not do 58.

Re: my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

hmm.. 70cc+22/35T+an open road.. yeah its completely plausible

Re: my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

lets say you have a stock bike. 50cc+11/35T gearing going 30mph that seems pretty legit

if you take your drive gear up to a 22, that means at the same rpm that was taking you 30mph on the 11T gear, will be taking you TWICE the speed on the 22T gear, BUT it just takes longer to get there.

2+ years ago? Fuck off.

You fucked over so many people!

You sold the same things to so many differnt people? And took everyones money.

Re: my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

Re: my first moped builld

Re: my first moped builld

Re: my first moped builld

Salsa Salsa /

Register at totfest.com. come race!

Re: my first moped builld

apollo christianson /

sold it to some college kid in Madison, SD, after the rod bearing blew out to help pay back the dudes on here, might be able to hunt him down and find it!

Re: my first moped builld

you sold the bike 5 hours after making a thread about your first build? uhhh... what?

Re: my first moped builld

22x35? Whaaaaaat? That is the steepest e50 gearing I've ever heard of. That wouldn't even have the torque to spool out that ratio. LIES.
