Girls dig 50cc engines...

A few weeks ago, I picked up a 1980 Fantic Motor Concorde XKE. It is pretty low mileage, the speedo says 380, but it quit working. However, everything has very minimal wear, so I wouldn't think it's much above 500.

The engine runs great after a good carb cleaning, with mileage this low, should I be concerned about tearing the engine apart to decarbonize? I think it's running a bit rich, so I'm going to do some plug chops and rejet if I can.

I put on new tires and tubes, new chain, repacked the bearings, and I checked the exhaust - no significant buildup there yet. I also replaced the crappy plastic rear sprocket (yes, I said PLASTIC!) with a steel one. I plan on keeping it mostly stock for now, but what else I need to do maintenance wise? The brakes shoes are in great shape and the Tranny oil looks good.

Any other riders in Savannah?

Re: Girls dig 50cc engines...

Sorry, didn't realize there was a separate repair forum because of all the girls distracting me.

Feel free to talk freely about chicks and mopeds.

Re: Girls dig 50cc engines...

I was thinking, for a while, about getting a riding shirt that said "I drive this tiny vehicle to compensate for my enormous manhood"

But then I decided it was too tasteless, and more importantly, too much effort to do.

Re: Girls dig 50cc engines...

how does one go about getting ped head? was the ped in motion while this was goign on, the only way i can fathom this goings on, would be if a midget was involved.....

Re: Girls dig 50cc engines...

You could receive a reach around on a ped.

Re: Girls dig 50cc engines...

Unless the girl is an indie chick I doubt shes going to find your moped cool.Best bet is to just flash your penis and hope for the best.

This isn't a response,just a post to anyone.

Re: Girls dig 50cc engines...

what if i am riding my moped while flashing my penis to prove that i am undercompensating?

Re: Girls dig 50cc engines...

Then you'll have to ask her after you climb out of bed and get dressed,what did she like more? Your meat or you bike.

Im guessing she'll say the first though.

Re: Girls dig 50cc engines...
