So, starting a new Thread for all of my Mopeds, gonna start with the Maxi S:

Started its life as a Supermaxi LG2 wich my Father Frame Swapped to a Maxi S about 6-7 Years ago, this is my first Moped and will be the last, dont care how much i have to spend on it, had a ZA50 Supermaxi in it:

IMG_20160918_190643.jpg

changed a lot since then and has an E50 with a 65cc Airsal, 22mm Exhaust and 12mm Bing,, also a Hercules Front Fork because they are a lot better than the normalish EBR Forks:

Oh, sorry for the confusion, thats not my Lift, the Pic is from the Seller, wich is a Moped Mechanic.

Also, this sould be a Project thread for my Mopeds, going to Post updates and stuff like that, want my Hercudreck to look like an old 50cc GP Bike when i am done with it, kinda like this:

images.jpeg.jpg

"Problem" i have right now is what setup to use, i would like to stay with 50cc and kinda want a Cylinder with big Fins like they are found on Sachs 5 Speeds, a 6.25hp Cylinder would be to Peaky for the 2 Speed, they just start to accelerate at 4'000, under that you will bog down even in 1. Of a 5 Speed Engine.(edited)

Sorry, no Pics today, made some and just now noticed that the Camera was full of grease, but still, here is a little update:

Black Puch:

Today i rebuild the Cluch of my E50, wich is apart right now, changed to Blue Springs and long Shoes, its a 3 Shoe witch i want to engage at about 3'000rpm.

Hercudreck:

Modified the Tank of the Hercules a little, it had a Teardrop-ish Style Tank from factory, wich i am probably going to reuse, need to look if i can get the Dents out or if Putty/Filler will hold there, might need to change the Tank. also looked how a Rear Fender would look in front. I would like to get a different/already cut Frame for it because i will need to remove some Brackets from the Frame to get it how i would like to have it. Probably going to test what Top speed i could get out of a Stock cylinder and Piston so geared ultra long with a 28/70 Exhaust and a 12mm Bing, stock is 16:40, maybe going with 18:40 or 18:36, will see when i get there.

I kinda like it:

The Rack probably needs to go.

Re: My Garage, Maxi, Hercules 623 Luxe, Hercules 624 Sport, Supermaxi and more

I'm not too sure. It looks a bit bare in the middle.

Re: My Garage, Maxi, Hercules 623 Luxe, Hercules 624 Sport, Supermaxi and more

Chöschi21 C.K. /

i know, it's just stuck together, probably going to cut a Rear Fender apart to mount in front, rear Fender will be shortened to, dunno what Kind of skirts i am going to use, maybe none, maybe bend some my self, probably not going to use the stock plastic ones, maybe some of the stock metal ones. have to change the seat a Little, cant get the Pipe for it out of the Frame right now. and i NEEED some Spoke Wheels.

Also would like to mount a Side Float Carb on it when it's done, coolest would obviously be an old 14mm Dellortho Downdraft Carb, but i would even be Happy with a Bing 1/12/228

Edit: would be great if i could find a Florett "Eggtank" for it(edited)

Re: My Garage, Maxi, Hercules 623 Luxe, Hercules 624 Sport, Supermaxi and more

There's plenty of "eggtanks" for sale on www.marktplaats.nl they are pricey though. (You can search for eitank, ei tank or Kreidler tank)

Re: My Garage, Maxi, Hercules 623 Luxe, Hercules 624 Sport, Supermaxi and more

Chöschi21 C.K. /

Coo! Thank you, they seem to cost about half of what i would have to pay around here for a good tank. I will keep it in mind.

Re: My Garage, Maxi, Hercules 623 Luxe, Hercules 624 Sport, Supermaxi and more

So, rode my Supermaxi today, its slow, but i didn't care, music on and wide Open throttle, also had to stop at the Town sign of "Evil"

Re: My Garage, Maxi, Hercules 623 Luxe, Hercules 624 Sport, Supermaxi and more

Like those puchs.

I wish we got super maxis here in the u.s market.

Re: My Garage, Maxi, Hercules 623 Luxe, Hercules 624 Sport, Supermaxi and more

Chöschi21 C.K. /

jup, they are quite fun, also have a lot more Torque than the normal Maxi's, even if it only has 0.16hp more than the 1.2hp model. Puchs realy aren't that good in terms of climbing hills and accelerating.

These are 260mm Dampers, the lowest i can get, in the Rear, it is 6cm Lower than stock but still looks like a Monstertruck.(edited)

So, I am tryling to tune my 12mm Bing right now, it's either running good at 1/4 Throttle and to lean at 3/4, when changing the needle position it gets to Rich at 1/4 and good at 3/4, how can I change that?

Re: My Garage, Maxi, Hercules 623 Luxe, Hercules 624 Sport, Supermaxi and more

Took some time to work on the Hercudreck, finished the wiring and mounted a Bicycle Headlight in the Back wich i am Probably going to remove and mount a different, round, egg shaped Bicycle Headlight or move the now installed one, need to tint the Plastic/Glas Red, Painted the Tank, the Dents how they were, probably going to repaint it in Matt because the Black gloss doesn't fit the Bike. Maybe paint a Number on the Side?

Just mounted a 2.75" Rear Tyre on the Hercules, well, to say it is Flush would be an understatement, i have about 4mm between the Fender and the Tyre.

I can feel ya bro...

I have an 86 herc basketcase I got for 75 but finding parts here is pricier and or unavailable..

Said and done with cost to title I am over what I could ever get for it.

A long seat from a Tomos a3 will fit with few mods. A batavus Springer will with the oem Sachs seat post clamp.

Nice bikes...

I feel like i am going Backwards with this, any ideas for the Rear? i hate how it looks right now, maybe put the Lamp where it should normally be? The Handlebars will be swapped.(edited)

Slap a CEV on it and call it done...

The Italian one with the plate holder and fender brace it fits through that hole in the frame.

That herc is the exact frame I found and titled from scratch as a p-1. So what is it? Mine has a shitty modded 505 1a. Y that's a 3 speed on yers ...

Cool.
