Re: How much $ was it, how much have you put into

Tuning it to 45mph and seizing the engine = Priceless.

Im about to start a project of the same magnitude so we'll see...

Re: How much $ was it, how much have you put into

60mph maxi ~$1400

watching it burn down = priceless

Re: How much $ was it, how much have you put into

Jake Shaughnessy /

365, u made out ok. $125 on a free spirit, 100 on a kit, 35 on a hi comp head, 90 on a carb, 80 on a exhaust and 150 on another one since i changed my mind, 30 on a intake, idk i think it was 40 for a kstar clutch, drop bars, tires for that bike. Then i almost spent what you did just on a maxi N frame

Re: How much $ was it, how much have you put into

Yes, Very Good, and months later, costs undoubtably have changed, and I wanted to see the Original Price Factor.

Re: How much $ was it, how much have you put into

$650 - 50mph Tomos from Samz

$120 - Trailtech Vapor tach/speedo

$120 - Dellorto PHBG 21mm racing & jets

$50 - Malossi 4 petal intake

$50 - Boyesen reeds

$40 - Driving lights from Autozone

$10 - Exhaust gaskets, exhaust mounting hardware

----------

$1040

Still going to be some more $$ to get a proper intake made to work with that carb and the Malossi reedblock, plus a 31T front sprocket, and possibly a 20T rear sprocket if I can get enough torque with the new carb.

Lil MotoGuzzi Vert /

slocketman... what kind of speeds are you getting from that set up?

Re: How much $ was it, how much have you put into

Not sure yet, I need to get an intake made so I can put that carb onto the Malossi quad reed block. The intake that comes with it points straight up into the frame, with 0 clearance to attach anything to it. Need to fabricate a top plate with a hole in it at an angle and bend some copper tubing to bring the carb around to the right side of the frame.

I'm hoping to see max 60mph. It already does 50mph @ 9630rpm with a 16mm SHA and 26/24 gearing.

Re: How much $ was it, how much have you put into

current build

NVT (non-running) - partial trade for my safari

Re: How much $ was it, how much have you put into

Paid $30 for my 1977 Gloria Intramotor Blanco with a Minarelli V1 with no cylinder or piston,just a crank laying out helplessly.

Got a 14.12 SHA carburetor from my best friend from his old Targa LX for free.

Got a Puch Magnum intake and studs for free from a friend who sold my best friend the Blanco and Targa.

Bought a NOS cylinder and piston kit from Handybikes for $80. Cylinder head is too small so I'm sending that back tomorrow for a working one.

Need to buy a throttle cable and a brake cable for about $9 a piece.

Need to buy a main jet for about $3.

Need to buy a used exhaust for I don't know how much...

Want a new set of Gazelles for about $45.

Need a gasket kit for about $12.

Need a plug and some random oils, I'll guess that's about $12.

Need cylinder studs for about $10...

Thank god I'm ordering all this stuff tomorrow. Thank you birthday money! After all those parts I'll have about $50 for a used exhaust.
