Can your ped go the distance?

Matthew Westberg /

What's the highest Odometer reading you've ever had

a - without an engine rebuild.

and

b - with rebuilds, repairs - anything at all, even a new engine. Just how long have you kept a ped going?

I have 7100 on my 1979 motobecane mobylette. The spark is on the way out now but the engine still has compression. That is always a good sign. I dont know if it has had rebuilds because I am not the first owner.

It still runs great... for about 5 minutes. ;) But a new ignition parts should take care of that.

Re: Can your ped go the distance?

I have a registered 26K+ miles on my oldest Sebring, but I know that it has nearly 40K,really. The 60cc Polini kit that ChrisMWH sold me must be closing on 20K now, with only the ring being replaced.

My second-oldest Sebring has approx.15K on it. My 3rd oldest Sebring has nearly 4K, and the Tomos I bought for my step-son wernt nearly 13K with no motor work(he crashed it into a pole). I am not riding my StreetMate which I got from Ike's Bikes as a daily rider,yet............it's too pretty to abuse! LOL! don-ohio (:^D

my ped has done over 25,000 km!!! its a 1999 peugeot vivacity 50cc, no problems ever apart from rollers, brake pads, tyres and speedo cable which is all wear and tear stuff. has excellent acceleration you really have to brace your self to stop your head snapping back and it will beat literally anything off the line, e.g. ford focus, new mini, honda civic type 'r' but the top speeds only 50mph so that sucks

Hey Don? You have a Streetmate? Oh man! I need some good hard info on those. (See my Thread in General discussion)

Re: Can your ped go the distance?

This is a message for Patch, you need to DERESTRICT your moped if you want it over 50mph my friend. If you still have your original exhaust either get rid of it and get a performance type or simply unbolt it and remove the washer inside, also there's a backplate that is attached to your clutch that you can safely remove _if you know what you are doing_ . after that you'll notice an increase in power, not like WOW but good enough.

Re: Can your ped go the distance?

Bjerg.........you can't beat a StreetMate........really......they are top of the line. The MBK Sebring was an equal to them in comfort and gearing in 1980.........but since then I haven't owned a comparable bike.

Possibly some Puchs and the Vespa Grande were pretty close? I dunno... don-ohio (:^)

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh MAAAAANNNNNNNNNNN.......

I'm gonna go nuts between now and Spring... I just KNOW it.

Re: Can your ped go the distance?

Patrick Ross /

i have, its a new exhaust (not racing just a bog standard factory derestricted one), and the washer between the variator bits has been taken out. so it think a sports exhaust will do. i havent touched the clutch though so ill have a look with the trusty haynes manual.
