Toronto moped

Jon Dalton /

I went to this guy's house to buy a Dellorto carb from him for $60. Me and my fiance ended up staying for dinner and talking about mopeds most of the time. He is a year-round mopeder like us, and used to fix mopeds in downtown Toronto. We saw his photo album with chrome and gold plated mopeds and stuff.

Anyway, this guy is pretty clever with mopeds, for example he put a Batavus head on his Puch to increase compression and make it go faster. He told me how to modify a carburetor jet using these really small files made for cleaning the tip of a mig welder. To make it smaller, he fills the jet with solder and starts over again. This interested me because my Torrot had a #64 jet in its original Dellorto carb, and the biggest jet I have now is a 52. It only runs with the choke. I have a deadline to get this bike up and running and sold, already have a buyer, and not much time to wait for a new jet to be shipped, so I might just try this method out.

We told him about Moped Army but he doesn't touch computers, it's too bad because I think he would have a lot to add to this group.

You can call Mike at 416-772-3300. He does have a lot of moped parts, some of which are for sale, and also 2 whole Peugeot mopeds.

Re: Toronto moped

Who is this guy Mike? Try to call him if your in Canada and have him post pictures of his gold and chrome moped parts.I thought it might be Targaped at first.

It's a scooter rally but apparently a bunch of mopeds show up too! You can see on the list of past participators...It's supposed to be a race but I'm planning to go just for fun.

Re: Toronto moped

I've been in the last 2 mad bastard rallies . Lots of fun , but it isn't easy to ride 750 km. on a moped in one day . I recommend a 150cc scooter at least.

John Joedicke /

He knows what he is talking about. What is your theme this time around?

Re: Toronto moped

Yeah, I don't plan going all 800km. Don't want to risk a breakdown in the middle of nowhere. I'm just there to hang out for a few hours with people with same interest. Are you going this year truckerick?

Re: Toronto moped

I live in Thunder Bay NWO, I'd like to ride aroud in TO.

Any organized moped groups around there?

Re: Toronto moped

there's a facebook group for Toronto riders, I got rid of facebook though so I can't link you.

Re: Toronto moped

brap brap. interesting stuff... hey curb! sell me that yamabob! :D

Re: Toronto moped

I still don't know if I want to enter the next mad bastard rally .

No ideas for a theme either .

On the other hand , it's in Barrie so I could stay at my sisters place instead of a hotel !

Re: Toronto moped

The military theme you had at the last MBSR was cool Rick!

Ven dont waste a panic - 800km in one day is just compressing a couple of weeks moped commute into 24hrs, if your ride can not go for two weeks without breaking down then there is something wrong. Even if you break down there are good people there AND on a moped you can pedal the course (think there must be a trillion points if you pedal the entire course on a moped)

Re: Toronto moped

Curb

Ive only met him once and i got a free maxi so ive been screwing around with that, i havnt got one running reliably yet but by the time i can drive them ill it running

Re: Toronto moped

† CH∆D † /

Re: Toronto moped

† CH∆D † /

Yeah ok. Ian Mingo I think.

Im jealous of your been in Kingston. Place is rockin!!

Re: Toronto moped

speaking of Kingston , I bought my 51v from a guy in Kingston last October .

Re: Toronto moped

I am glad you bought that 51v Rick - it was driving me nuts to see it on kijiji!
