Hobbit Magnum. VROOM VROOM.

After ten long years of work, this moped is done. BEHOLD! A Hobbit with a... Magnum tank.

It sounds kind of like a scooter when I ride it and I think I might be a little lean in some spots. Should be ready by Moped Monday though, boys!

It's got a Polini 70 kit on it, 24mm OKO with a Honda Dio reed block, HPI CDI and the Motomatic pipe to exhale all the exhaust. Oh, and the TJT with a Fast Arrow belt. Thanks Treat Monster for all the wonderful parts!!!

The rad thing is it's still pretty light. I can carry it up the stairs where I live, I am quite strong though. This is probably because there isn't actually a bar welded in for the tank. Dr. Michael Mike Naz just welded some tabs onto the top tube and the seat posts for the tank to rest on.

I gots more words and pictures 'n stuff on my blog HERE if you're so inclined.

Yup.

SWEET moped!

Re: doh! hers the pic

Vic-a-licious: I told you, come up mid week and we can ride mopeds into the sunset.

I.R.E.: After riding around my neighborhood for 20 minutes the CDI has not blued up my motor. It got dark so I had to go home. I'll put the lighting coil on tomorrow.

Z: I have no clue what you is talking about. Hearts, dummy.

I know the Lil Wayne song is what convinced you to put that giant tank on there.

29 gallons!

Things that in no way relate to this thread...

1. Lil Wayne

2. Kanye West

Thanks for playing though.

Re: Hobbit Magnum. VROOM VROOM.

how'd you get side covers over that TJT without cutting?

Re: Hobbit Magnum. VROOM VROOM.

p.s fuck kanye.

Re: Hobbit Magnum. VROOM VROOM.

Rob @t ATTN! Burrito /

i hear kanye beats women

Re: Hobbit Magnum. VROOM VROOM.

Ack, yes the variator rubs on the side cover, so it's off right now. Hopefully that will all be solved with some spacers and junk. In other news, the TJT seems to work without changing out the rear spring. Win.

Re: Hobbit Magnum. VROOM VROOM.

Re: Hobbit Magnum. VROOM VROOM.

Rob @t ATTN! Burrito /

ok to clear up the pic confustion i'll use a parallelagraph:

In this we have the online moped community represented by Beyonce, because it's fierce independent and glamorous.

travise represented by Kanye, well because there are haters

and the built hobbit was represented by the Connected Four, the object of the game.

Ps the 2tone little chroma valve stem caps are way sweet. nice touch! hobbits rule!

God that is sick. Congrats on having patience and being original.

Re: Hobbit Magnum. VROOM VROOM.

Very clean looking job Travise!

Great job Trav.

I expected nothing less from you though.

It's a stunner, congrats.

And oh yeah, FUCK Kanye.

I still don't understand why people like him...

Re: Hobbit Magnum. VROOM VROOM.

The TJT will work with stock weights if it is on the stand, off the the stand you need to mod your weights for it to do what you want.

If I ever hang with Adrian (he's got the sweet gram scale) out here and remember to do it I'll weigh out my weights for the TJT tuning populations pleasure.
