I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

This popped up on my battlefield today. I fired one over the bow, and he gave it up right away. Offered $75, but could maybe go a bit more since it was close. Gave him $100, since it had all the plastics minus air cleaner. It’s missing speedo & switches too, but I’ve got spares. Turns over free, with good compression. He said it ran fine til air filter fell off while riding. then he couldn’t get it going again without it. Of course not.

Not a bad deal. Not bad at all.

I friggin love the trailer light!

True moped fashion. I also kinda like the bicycle stunt pegs crammed on the grips too.

Mopeds.

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

I wish I had the space to buy all the derelicts that I see...make the rat live! Love it man!

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

I brought it inside and threw it on the bench. Wiring is all jacked up, in goofy switches and the best moped duct tape available,

Oh, and a Dellorto PHVA 14, with something missing from the top. No wonder it quit.

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

Nice^^! Especially the price. I love FreeSpirits. He woulda taken my original offer of $75, but I felt bad for him; he was hurting for cash. Besides, it’s Christmas and I felt generous.

Pray the rosery and say 3 "Hail Mary's" for your sins, or something like that

The piece thats missing is the choke

And all the adjustment screws it seems

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

Yeah, I figured out it’s the choke. But those holes aren’t for anything. The two little ones aren’t threaded and dead end, and the big threaded one goes in about 1/4” , but is a dead end hole. Not drilled thru. Just a dummy hole, but I don’t know why it’s threaded.

The idle adj and air adj screws are on the other side.

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

I guess the carb is off a Tomos A55, and the og chokes go bad. Replacement lever chokes are available at treats.

Here’s the adjustment screws on the other side.

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

Ditch that carb and put a 14 bing on it. The adjustment screws are all on the wrong side.

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

Not a scooter

That too. Yeah, I’m gonna put a Bing on it, for better or worse, til seizure do we part.

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

I haven’t decided what to do with this bike yet, after I get it running. It’s my third Free Spirit. I have the red one with a Treats 70 kit. My other silver one has a Gila. But I don’t know what to do with this one. Maybe a ported stock plus build? Or maybe a 50 cc kit & pipe? Any body holding a NOS cast iron Metrakit 65? Polini? Suggestions?

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

WOP hero kit. That's challenging...

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

Here’s one I had. Polini with stock 14 bing and airbox. It’s certainly one of the nicer free spirits I’ve seen.

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

^ SO nice, what are the wheels from?

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

^euro pug wheels. From a 103 I think. I got them local but they came from Will Jensen overseas.

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

That’s beautiful! I love it!

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

I put it up on the bench today. Turning the flywheel by hand didn’t feel right, so I pulled the head. Then the cylinder after what I saw. It lost the top ring, eating the top end and bearings. So, since it’s gotta get the full rebuild, I’ve made up my mind.

This baby’s getting a Polini, 15 Bing and Estoril.

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

Nice!

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

Should run like a scalded dog!

Re: I couldn’t say no. I’m too weak.

Kreidler tank and aren't the wheels kreidler too? Look nice on that!
