This is my first moped that I am building. I am hoping to get the razzing that the "Canadian Cafe Racer Style Moped" post got. Reading that post inspired me to take a few pictures and put up my shit guard. Cause I know I am going to get shit...
It is a 1977 Safari with the pedals gone and foot pegs. The forks are MB5 and the wheels are KX80. The rear wheel has a front 17" rim and custom spokes. The rear sprocket had to be mounted on the inside of a carrier for chain alignment. The brakes are KX80 also with the front caliper carrier flipped over for the MB5 forks. Still making the rear carrier and link rod. The rear shocks are light Emgo motorcycle bumpers selected to raise the rear the same as the front.
Yes it has turn signals, but they are small LED. As a matter of fact all the lights are LED, even the H4, dual beam headlight. The rear turn signals are a combination of tail light, stop light and turn signal, yes 4 wires on each. The light switch on the ugly bars is suzuki, rewired for my harness. Yea, I have to find some better bars.
The engine is mild, a stock jug ported and decked. The intake is bored to 16mm and the exhaust 19mm. Found a 16 Mikuni to fuel it, with a UNI filter. I am building a better engine, but I want to get this going sooner. I am going to use an aluminum honda kick start lever, but bump start for now.
The battery is for constant power to the lights, and 12 volt conversion.
Lots to do yet. Finish mounting the rear brake when the tie rod ends come, finish the wiring, drill and tap the engine case for oil temp sensor, drill the sprocket carrier for the speedometer sensor magnets, make a seat +++
