How fast can a kitted bike go?

So I have just gotten into the world of moped after owning a '59 Lambretta Series 2, '65 Vespa Super (with a P200 motor w/ racing exhaust), and a '65 Honda CB160. I know with Lambs and Vespas when all kitted and tuned up you can damn near top out at 100mph (and cruise at 60-70mph)

I have been researching motors and kits and it seems like the biggest kit you can get is a 77 or 80cc kit. How fast can a kitted/tuned moped go?

P.S. what I really loving about custom mopeds are that you can build them into hard core vintage cafe racers which is 100x cooler than a Vespa. I just wished I knew about this 5 years ago..HAHA

I'll trade you my fast as shit Cafe'd out Hobbit for that 65 Vespa.

Seriously.

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

the Vespa is long gone... as I had to sell it when I moved from CA to Philly 2 years ago.

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

Kitty daily driver peds can do 70+ and cruise comfortably in the 50's/60's. Strict racers perhaps a bit more but u tend to sacrafice driveability. Like any other motor sport: Lots of reading+wrenching. Healthy pocket book doesn't hurt either.

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

Britchez now that at bad at all! whats are good frame to start with (tube type). I see Hobbits go for cheap and also like the J.C. Penny Pinto. I'm thinking about running a kitted Puch ZA50

I'm super partial to puch e50 powered peds. Love my rigid kickstart swinger, and my maxi but for comfortably cruising at high speeds, shoot for a magnum w/hydro forks.

Read this spread sheet for rough ideas on top speed: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AseU2kk9COgXdDVRSGlFYnV1V1J1MnBnZEZ2U2d0QXc&hl=en_US#gid=0

Please do a complete search of the moped wiki and these forums as almost all questions have been already answered. (edited)

Danger Dan that is the best tech sheet ever made. It will really help with what will or will not work

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

Around here in NY they clock mopeds and if you are caught going high speeds,(as a rule, 30 mph on a flat surface will not get you hassled even though the laws says 20 mph and under) you will get a whole bunch of tickets (not just for speeding) but having altered your vehicle beyond the registration, not having it registered as a motorcycle (and if you don't have an M class on your license) for driving without a proper license and having your license revoked.

Trying to push a moped up into those types of speeds (50+ mph) will require major frame, shock, wheel and gearing mods. You are building a motorcycle with pedals.

Slooooooooooowwwwwww

Mopeds only go 30max.

They can be made way faster than the capabilities of its brakes. You're taking your life in your hands.

Truth !!!!

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

How fast can a kitted bike fast, if a kitted bike could fast fast ?

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

maybe faster than a non-kitted bike if you do it right.

Check out this Youtube video and it'll

give you an idea of what is possible

with 50cc's and really deep pockets.

Not a moped^

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

well if you have deep pockets and love board track racers (1910's -1920's motorbikes) check out Sportsman Flyer 200. This guy is building the whole bikes from scratch and using a go cart 4 stroke engine. Yes it has pedals....

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

^ The spinning sprocket on those are pretty sweet. otherwise fuck 4t.

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

But you can't register that as a moped (it has a 200cc engine). I would want a 200cc small motorcycle to go a whole lot faster than 50 mph. I used to have an old 125cc Harley dirt bike that would crank a lot faster than that. It is nice looking little piece of work though, I'll give you that.

Officer, there aren't any mopeds that are capable of speeds greater than 30 mph on level ground.

Re: How fast can a kitted bike go?

My 90cc 2t does 70mph.
