The time had come for my little Express to take on a new form. I bought it to chop up and I've been ripping it around as is but it's got low compression and a knocking in the head and it's bummer that it takes over 5 minutes to get it warm enough to ride.
So we're going to get the engine straight and maybe a light juicing up. From what I've read I'm thinking a 1.5mm base gasket and a new carb and pipe. Just want it to run better and keep up with my wife's Puch.
As far as the chop side, I'm using this as an excercise to give me something else to build other than motorcycles. Goals are to just have fun with it and use stuff that I've got. I have access to lots of fancy tools but I'd like to do this without it turning into some crazy project like most of my projects. KISS. Keep it simple stupid.
Here she is in all her original glory.
