My new ped! - '78 A3 Bullet

So today I picked up my new acquisition, a 1978 Tomos with only 514 miles. It starts on the first kick, but only makes it up to about 25mph because it's the dog version with an encarwi and all, but I picked up an A35 engine for it last week. It'll also get an estoril, dellorto 15:15, and a custom 15mm intake. I plan to port the A35 a little bit, but am going to be happy to have a Tomos that'll run like a modern ped AND actually look good! Never thought I'd own one, but I sure like this one.

It has a key! My first moped with a key!

Re: My new ped! - '78 A3 Bullet

a-3's are infectious little buggers, you think 'grr crappy tomos' then you start working on it and have it going 35 in a couple hours...pretty soon you're hooked.

Yea, well its possible. We are still fine tuning my brother's bike, but its doing 45+ with a 12 sha. It takes work, but its doable. Secrets may be unleashed soon.

Re: My new ped! - '78 A3 Bullet

is that a real 45mph, or just tomos 45?

Hell, this ped stock does 2mph standing still! (seriously, check the speedo pic)
