BEFORE YOU START CRYING this was a super f'd pinto with no wheels, no motor and a crusty tank. It was $40 and had been sitting for months. The fellow mopeder I bought it off of was thrilled to see it being used - even if four stroke.
I sold all the parts SUPER cheap off of it as a sacrifice to the moped gods.
I started this thing in november when I started rebuilding my $20 CL motor (which is now got waaayyyyy more than $20 in it), our welding shop at school got shut down, I searched for a month for a place that would let me weld and a redbull sponsored welder let me finish the fab at his shop - Preston Farabow in knoxville. The general tank I pryed out of the hands of an ebay seller trying to get insane monies for a v1 general, the forks were pieced together from egay, the magnum swingarm was leftover from a variated magnum project from robert prichard in nashville.
After I got it built it ran but didn't run right. I assumed timing was set because I gapped the points but I assumed wrong. Trouble shot compression and valve timing for a month when it was just timing - gapping points is NOT timing on these motors. Timed it and it blasted, then discovered a cracked exhaust valve, so I threw new japanese valves in the head. Replaced valves, and then the clutch couldn't handle the power so I had to throw race springs in that.
Rode it in richmond pretty much for the first time outside the neighborhood. It's a blast.
I love two stroke and I've got two stroke builds going on right now too - so hate on the bike but not me.
