Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

So cool! Can't wait for 2020 rally season! Year of the mini peds! Keep it up!

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

This is a DOPE build!

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

Very cool. Bonus points for the cat pics

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

More parts cleaned. They pack these variators full of grease from the factory so it’s a huge mess.

Gearbox went together and rolls smooth! I accidentally chipped a tiny corner of the case with the press putting in the main bearing. I’m pissed but what can you do. It won’t affect anything. It’s just toys. Pics later.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

Now it's time for an Stage6 R/T 70..

Hondas love Stage6 R/T cylinders. I know you already know this.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

Nah, too much shit to deal with, with the LC and too much power for a bar of soap where you sit over the rear wheel. I decided on the 46mm parmakit. I’ll get into porting it once I have the bottom end finished.

I have my hobbit with the stage6 and it’s nuts enough already, goal on this bike is simple, reliable, portable

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

Pics of the spot I broke in the press and JB welded back on. Doesn’t really matter hut just super bums me out because this engine was like perfect. Nicest powedercoat I’ve ever had done. Oh well.

Also think I got the kickstart gears figured out. (Reminder, this came as a box of parts and I’ve never built one before). Need to order more m6 stainless hardware and clean up rear pulley and I should be able to button it up.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

So rad. I like all these packable mopeds with gnarly engines ive been seeing lately. The kickstart on these are super annoying!! If you’re planning on any sort of variator tuning, drill start it and don’t bother with the kickstart mechanism until it’s dialed.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

This Motocompo will need attention to the front-end.

The factory fork and brake reach their abilities even with original engine specs, factory "bearing" in the steering head is worn out easily.

Some 10" Scoot-Forks (Macal, Malaguti) could deliver a stabilized front.

10" Wheels with greater drum brakes are in Honda Elite/Spacy 250 scooters i.e.

Great to see this!

I have no knowledge of a 8" Rim with a bigger brake drum...Maybe in the Monkey, Gorilla, Dax-Scenery? (edited)

Sounds like all the reasons I would want all that power :D

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

Great info! I’ve been looking into monkey wheels and machining my own rear adaptor to go from spline to 4 bolt. I want to at least get a rear disk on it with possibly a bearing support on the right.

I was at a loss for forks. I see all these Japan dudes with super cool forks but couldn’t find them anywhere. So thank yuh for this knowledge.

I’m pretty hard set on still running 8in wheels because I think 10s throw the proportions off and it looks really dumb and donked out. There are a lot of nice monkey 8 in wheels around

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

Good idea! Yeah I got this as a rally bike and I’ve always loved them since I’m an oldschool Honda nerd and still have a CRX.

But smart in tuning, that cover seems like a bitch to take on and off.

You can find muckled Aprilia SR50's for pretty cheap, and they have very sick forks that could be made to work. I have a set in my shop, I will grab a photo this weekend.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

Older vespa scooters run 8in tire so I'm sure you'll find something. I would just leave the brakes stock your not going to need much more than what it came with in reality. Figure those same pads are on Hondas with much larger wheels. As the size of the wheel increases the breaking effectiveness decreases the opposite as wheel size decreases the brakes are more effective. There is an abundance of info on wheel size and braking all over the internet for cars and bikes a like.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

Get some mega cheapo Lowdown forks for a ruckus or dio. Cut some out of the springs and legs, put some oil in them and be done.

You could get a 8" monkey wheel and run a disk, or get a drum hub. both are available. I am not sure on what diameter the monkey drum hub is though.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

Yeah I considered that, I used to play the Ruckus game years ago and had a cammed GY6 ruck. I remember NCY made some decent stuff. I’ll look into this as I get further along

NOS seat from treats, my old one wasn’t bad, but had some weird glue stains.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

The NCY stuff the lower legs are still too long.

You need the el cheapo slammed legs. I heavily modified a set for my spree a few years ago because spree's are also very short.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

I think you can find them under the RRGS or JISO brand.. but they look identical without the stickers

Trees you can use metro or jazz maybe?

holy shit bruv its even right hand drive. those are some sweet toys your holding.

Re: 1981 Motocompo Build

CHT wired in along side the stock harness up the control stock thing whatever it’s called. Don’t need that oil light anymore because I’ll be using premix.
