Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

This is an awesom build!

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Nothing fits in a samurai! Dangle the front wheel over the back door if its a soft top. Pics!

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

My BMX Express is coming along, the wheels are good, the seat and gas filler hole figured out. I hammer printed a seat pan to fit the pad. A lot of fun!

Hammer printer. Lol. I have a few of those.

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Had to get out the persuader a couple times;)

The back side, I cut 2 steel rings. One ring to shim the hub out 3/16"~, the other ring welded over the top. The puch bolt heads welded thru 5 holes drilled in the cover plate. The outside has holes drilled to fit the coupler nuts thru and welded into the cover. Recessed, welded and polished with 80grit. It spins straight before and after tightening the sides together and welding. Straight every which way. Turned out great!

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

I took a rattle can to it to get some momentum. The tubes were lightly rusted so I'll be blasting it anyway for powder.

you're a fucking maniac. that seat is insane. what?!

can the wheels point the same way?

I used FA50 forks - they're like the perfect BMX style and fit 16's but has a shocks so it's less brutal of a ride

also looking back, that flandria totally fits in a samurai. it's gota morini on it now tho. more fast, same fun, runs outta gas in like 10 miles.

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

It's a springy taint buster, balls bouncing around like the mega lotto ;) I like the the FA forks a lot. I have this gas cap cut down to fit inside the frame tube and was looking around for a seal seat. Should I cut it off an old gas tank...? Then I picked up this electric scooter headset cup. It needed twist lock notches cut in and the chrome removed before I welded it in there. locks good n tite, ill drill an air bleed valve bung in the top bar. The wheels can be flipped any which way.SURE.. (I have a bunch of time :)

I just used a section of pipe that fit the OD of the lil ciao oil cup caps. easy, slides right in.

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Right on! The name's lousey. "_Honda Lousey" that is!

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Guess I need to step up. Kid up the block has some vintage BMX frames.

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

BMX moped shit bores me, I'm on to the next one.

Exercise-Bike-Moped, check this beauty out. Seats in great shape, never seen handlebars like that on any bike. Side covers and graphics are in great shape, and with a name like Aquarius2000, ill have to run a snorkel setup so I can go swamping on that bad boy.

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Found the culprit! The plastic seat, I covered it with tape to get the pattern that will fit the pad. Then I guess I hired a beaver to cut a plywood template.

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Can anyone here say what sort of mechanical structure within the engine makes for the free wheeling effect? There is the ratchet and pawl design and then whatever the Tomos one way method is. Old Saab 2 stroke cars had this feature I believe

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Thread jack update, filled up the frame fuel tank then dumped it out n measured, 1/2 gallon. 1/2 fucking galLON!! After all tha...

Hacked into the frame to add another handfuls.

Look how thick the steel bars are! DaYum!!

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Wish I could see better to weld! Occipital Neuralgia from bashing, but I'll get it patched up.

Debating on mallossi kit or metraKit.

The bicycle arm slips into the frame/motor mount bracket, then I'll drill and tap thru the pipes with an M6. Finish it with a little button head bolt.

Re: BMX MOPEDZ! a Flandria Apollo build

Both of these BMX builds are really awesome good job guys

damn dude, you are a maniac. that shit fucking rules.

I have been riding my Flandria a lot lately. mostly to work and back.

I bailed on getting creative with the stock motor - it is just way too unique to modify to any real benefit.

So now it's got a morini s6-E motor that I got from a dude's abandoned kart build, apparently originally from a 2000's ktm50 kids dirtbike.

It goes steady at about 50mph, 53 max GPS'd. pretty scary on that little thing but hilarious passing cars on a BMX with a weed whacker on steroids. thing revs to the moon and sounds ridiculous. but it uses gas like crazy. your 1/2 gallon of gas is gonna be a pain in the ass, I can hold ~2/3 of a gallon which is just about barely enough to get me 10 miles to work and back.

it also runs retarded hot, like 500+ head temps, but it's got 18+ hours at those temps and it cools down quickly at idle to ~400. I think it's the Al head and high comp is just intended to dump lots of heat outta the head. maybe it'll seize, but there's no adjusting the timing, but i've got a retarding box and i've got it jetted awesome with a little rich on low throttle just cuz it makes me comfortable.

it rips, it's super fun.
