Introducing...the Mintho

Totally normal JBOT /

After frustrating e50 adventures, no clutch allowed me to NOT be limited in my riding style due to the very steep terrain and my fat ass...and it made me crazy. So I decided to make a fun variated bike.

It's so awesome to ride. Not the first to throw a variated setup on a puch, but this is a fully bolt on setup and can be reverted to use an e50 if I ever desire.

Needs some more tweaks, but it's real quick.

Stats:

Pinto roller, hobbit with wizard kit decked 3mm, wc head, Moby pulley and pedal shaft. 11/60 with 2.75 tires.

Very cool, good job!

I just made the mount outta steel scrap.

Need to change the design cuz it's breaking the inner welds out at the hobbit motor mount bolt already.

Going to run an outside steel bar mount with bracing on the inside instead of an all inside mount.

This is a sweet idear.

Re: Introducing...the Mintho

i live bikes built of bits and pieces especially if they look unsafe to ride

i do see a serious problem thats a 4 stroke radiator it wont work for a 2 stroke engine unless you have it reprogrammed by the 2 stroke radiator foundation

Re: Introducing...the Mintho

Luckily I did all the reprogramming and it runs on DOS.

So I'm all set.

Re: Introducing...the Mintho

good yeah that should work

With 8k clutch stall and slightly too heavy weights it just rips off the line and if I dump the launch lever the front end just lifts off the ground in a scary way, but super exhilarating.

Re: Introducing...the Mintho

This is the kind of bike that makes me like mopeds.

That motor mount is gnarley!

Re: Introducing...the Mintho

awesome! I did the same thing with a 40t about a year ago. I sold it before I completed it though. awesome to see the same concept!

That's the advantage of having a hobbit as a swinging engine.

It's got a great stock clutch, so no need for a sketch clutch pulley.

Shit, I watched Chris Hernandez clutch bell going flying down the CA1 at the Bullies rally.

This motorized contraption could only have built by a person with a huge criminal past who is now striving to achieve a sense of normalcy.

The wiring alone mirrors the mind of a perverse deviant.

Note the tightness of the hose claps and the over extension of the motor mount to frame bolts. This person clearly hates my mother.

When the images first flashed before me my stomach moved into my mouth. I want to look away but cannot.

It is for this reason I must enter it high on my top 10 list of favorite builds.

Right near one of my own.

As always I appreciate the mans art. Thanks.

I still hate your mother though.

Re: Introducing...the Mintho

Listen Timmy,

Your tears taste like jism from all the bukaki.
