Just a pic of my 5 year old putting the light plate back on this Starflite I'm working on. She also helped me a little doing some work on an HS50 earlier today.
My Batavus HS50 rear lights stopped working. At first I thought the bulbs blew but it turns out the line was loose under the rear fender and rubbed up against the rear tire... which neatly shaved the wires in two. I fixed that and I took the panniers off cause they kept curling into the spokes. Not worth it. THEN after all that, I got some replacement covers for the transmission and the flywheel... but when I covered the flywheel, the engine died. Long story short- because the flywheel itself is a little rusty, when I covered it it kept the tiny particles inside the casing and gummed up the points so it wasn't moving as it should... no spark to the plug. So I cleaned that out with compressed air and know that I can't put a cover over it until I swap out the flywheel with a not rusty one. Ugh. But now shes running strong and happy and the lights work. So yay :-)
Hope my girl keeps being interested in wrenching. My oldest loves to ride. He will have to get into fixing lol. Anybody else got kids who may dig the moped life?
