WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

Im looking for a new ped in Michigan, West side preferably. I have a 1978 JC Penny Pinto with brand new proma GP exhaust, upgraded air filter. Would poss trade for a Maxi or Tomos. Just want something different. Can't seem to get this ped over 28 mph.

All you GR peeps must have something you don't want anymore that will run...

Should say new "old" ped...me fail english...

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

I have a sorta running trac top tank moped that i would trade. it starts and runs but around 15 it gets choppy and wont go faster. i ran perfect before that, i thinkit was the fuel flow because the petcock was clogged.

I've got a qt50 with a boss pipe 15 sha and its switched to pre mix. turned thee old oil tank into a second gas tank so that it has a better range

does 34-36 but its not a Bing fan of the cold

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

@andre Im really looking for something easy to find parts and info for since im pretty much a n00b when it comes to small engines.

@ascoute im pretty meh on the qt50's I dont really like the style...

@newzac what exactly is your orange robin? specs? pics?

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

Do you have any other pics of your Sprint?

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

any interest in my robin or no?

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

Why would you want a maxi or a tomos if you already have a pinto. Just get a kit for that bad boy!

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

dont talk him out of it you fuck head!

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

Well to be honest, this is my first ped, and with your convincing I may keep it. But it's kind of addicting and I want another. Poss one which is already tuned so I can take some notes or something because I'm having a problem getting this one tuned. NEwzac thanks for the offer but I think I'm going to pass, seeing as how there's less info on those than the one I already got. But that robin is pretty bangin'!

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

Don't worry newzac, you were never getting the pinto anyway...haha

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

There is a shit ton of info on your ped man. Its a Puch engine, doesn't get much more common than that!

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

don't buy from scrapmaster!

just kidding he is an awesome dude!

and email me about this pinto I'm sure I can help you with tunning, did you upjet? what is your gearing?

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

Bumpity bump.

What y'all got?!

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

make your bike run better.. buying another one if you cant fix minor problems isnt going to help you in the long run.

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

ive got a friend who would buy that pinto from you, you could use the money to find a running bike? just an idea

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

You want a Hobbit?

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

do i want a hobbit? or Jose?

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

The pinto runs, I decided to keep it. Gonna throw on a new carb. recheck for air leaks (again) when it warms up. It will run better.

@Brian what are the specs on that hobbit, i may be interested...

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

@erinl You may be right. Im sure getting more practice with different small engines is not the right way to go. Im sure that wont help me at all...silly me for trying to expand my knowledge base.

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

It's a 79 PA50I converted to PA50II. Has a Jammy pipe as well. Pretty nice bike - even has a title.

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

What price you looking for? I recently aquired a Bat Starflite VAII, needs an airbox and poss a new tank if you would be interested in a partial trade +cash. Otherwise whats the cash price, if im not interested I may have someone who is...

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

Was thinking $400 or so for it. Sorry, I'm not interested in Batavus mopeds... :) Already getting another Bat top tank regency just to rob the frame, tank and seat to convert my other top tank Hobbit,

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

Got any pics?

Re: WTB or WTT for new ped in MI

I'm in Texas working for another week. Could email some when I get home. But you could look in the photos section - its a 79 red/black PA50I that is in excellent shape and very clean.
