So since no one cares I came here from the motorized bicycle world. That was until law changed here, putting them into even more of a grey area.
At the time I had blown through a china kit on a $100 bike, 5000km and the needle bearing exploded.
With the general lack of quality on the china engines I thought I would go the morini route some others had done, but a little toned down. I didn't need a wheelie machine to get to work. So I picked up a S6E, was $500 ish, + shipping and more ups fees down the road.
Got everything built on a decent Giant frame with a dremel, drill and a hammer and a wrench. rode for a good year or so until I found out about the law changes.
A few people got hit and hurt bad on china bikes in the city, so I figured it would be best to legal up.
So I put the Morini away, missed it and got into mopeds.
It was a really nice engine and it deserves to be used, and I dont want it sit on a shelf for the rest of it's life. So it's going on a Tomos. I trashed another main gear on one of my tomos engines and this seems like a fun way of solving the problem while I find a cheap replacement.
The pipe is a cali flat port puch pipe made for tomos.
Put on a couple tabs for the top mount that I'll probably box in
I've got a little work to make some brackets for the rear mounts and likely some gearing to do, but it's going easier than expected.
Probably more at some point as I continue on.
