Just got my first moped!

Scored me a stock 1978 PA50II. Already bought a bunch of go-fast parts for it (Polini kit, Mikuni carb, etc., etc.).

I've been lurking here for awhile, but I thought I should introduce myself, so "hi" everyone!

Great site!!

EDIT: Wow--The Off-topic Forum, LOL! (edited)

Get it running good stock first before you start futzing with performance parts.

Re: Just got my first moped!

Thank you!

My BF is super-good with old motorcycles and cars, and he's shown me enough basics that I've figured stuff out, and have done just that.

He purrs like a kitten!

It only took me three times to get that darn carb cleaned properly. That idle circuit is tricky for a noob like me.

I'm going all out and building the entire engine, and not just kitting it. (edited)

^^LOL, exactly!! Glad I'm not the only one. I figured that out after I read the Wiki that I was not alone.

i'm sure this is covered under etc, but i gotta say that you NEED a stuffy crank if you are pull on a hobbit. I personally really like the dos 6roller variator, but the treats 6roller is good too! happy blasting

I hope you’re financially prepared for the rabbit hole of mopeds that you’re about to go down in.
