Re: First moped repair!

thats impressive! replacing a throttle cable is SUCH an ordeal.

Re: First moped repair!

next step: sand the decals off the tank and paint over the ltd edition fenders.

Re: First moped repair!

Ya that black chrome is ugly as hell. Nothing unique about that.

Re: First moped repair!

I got rid of the LTD and now i have magnum XK.

Re: First moped repair!

You needed help to change a throttle cable? That's some serious repair work there. How long did it take, two or three hours?

At least Joe has an excuse for ridiculously long repair times. It's a real bitch to fix anything when he's blackout drunk.

Everyone's gotta start somewhere...

Should have posted this on your twitter or FB wall instead of here.

Unless your magnum goes 68+ mph, AND looks brand new, AND you did it all by yourself, all you'll get from this peanut gallery are yawns and put downs.

Your next purchase is a Gilardoni (no just kidding).

bump because this thread sucks.

Re: First moped repair!

I started with brake cables, but I also didn't make a thread about it... at least I don't think I did. But hey. A throttle cable is a start. Good going.

i still struggle with putting air in my tires, i just stopped and ride them flat all the time now. feels like i'm riding a fish.

Re: First moped repair!

You just...got rid of.the LTD....i mean pfft.

Re: First moped repair!

Pay no mind to the haters, it is a feeling of accomplishment to fix a bike, especially if you do not have previous mechanical experience. Good going. Everytime you do this you get better aquainted with the bike and learn something, how else do you learn?

lol dude I'm like 4 weeks ahead of you, and I've already managed to buy an MB5 now too... let the addiction sink in...

oh yeah and don't expect to impress anyone until you've managed to get so good at fixing peds that you've turned your own smugness and lonliness into a paper maché mix of semen and sheets of paper from moped repair manuals... then compressed it into your own vintage puch frame, and built the rest from the ground up...

Re: First moped repair!

Re: First moped repair!

I'm glad you sold the limited and got yourself a good first bike. I better see you blasting at rallies in a couple years.
