50/50 done....

fuck yeah is all i got to say.

may i present the "hafter" half harold, half rafter. i got to sactown with my motor, and mike rafters pinto frame torn down to pieces ready for powdercoat. slapped that shit together in an hour and 45 minutes.

sick low end, crazy top end, ok midrange. got verified doing 50 by multiple people and still ripped off the line with the best of them. this was with 18x45 gearing. if i dropped to 40t rear god only know what kinda top speed i would have. keeping it just like this and gonna port the cylinder just a little bit more.


ported cylinder

portmatched case

bored carb and intake

clutched tightened 2.5 turns in



korado #22 cylinder


simonini exhaust

monza stator

fuck patches i think i might get a 50/50 tattoo

Re: 50/50 done....

Sick! How extensive was the modifications for the ports?

Re: 50/50 done....


Re: 50/50 done....

Fuck yeah!

Re: 50/50 done....

well its really kinda weird what i did.

there was a chip on the head side of the exhaust port. in order to smooth it out i had to dremel the port into a rounded triangle pointing forward. i also widened the exhaust port a tiny bit, portmatched the intake to the cylinder, roughened the intake, perfectly matched the transfer ports and polished the exhaust port.

this motor is all elbow grease. that god damned pipe makes a huge difference too.

Re: 50/50 done....

lol the seat post was chopped, and the seatmount was bent as fuck. ended up duct taping it down and then duct taping a small pillow to the seat. i would post pics of my bruised asshole but im not sure how much u would like that.

editing the video now. expect to see me passing peeps left and right soon.

Re: 50/50 done....

nice! where did you get that pipe!?

Re: 50/50 done....

oh man, now i have a benchmark to build to.

Re: 50/50 done....

HA! you can't pedal it tho.

Re: 50/50 done....

yeah no pedalling.

its funny though. in moped army you are only cool if your bike has pedals. but you are even cooler if you never use your pedals except sarcastically.


here is a vid shot while on this bike.

Re: 50/50 done....

I get angry when I can't use my pedals. My left pedal is welded in and the weld on the back kept hitting my pipe. Still the Halfter was one of my faves at the rally.

Re: 50/50 done....

"why the fuck are we stopping?" "who gives a shit, i need a fucking ass break"

Re: 50/50 done....

those sick tireflys probably added a few mph... hahah

Re: 50/50 done....

Harold,Good job! I am impressed! Congrads on making the 50/50. If it has the bottom end pullin' like you say, I would have to see how fast a 36 would get me.Even if for just a speed run. Bragging rites you know. Again, Good Job! Brent

p.s Send me an email with your addy, so I can ship out your swing arm.

Re: 50/50 done....

at 4.20 its so funny, its so obvious that guy is not going to make it round that corner as even before he starts turning lol

also, love the song!

Re: 50/50 done....

Coincidence that the time marker was at 4/20 when all hell broke loose, HMMMMM????

Re: 50/50 done....

Harold, It aint done til you put on a RAG!



Re: 50/50 done....

Cleats Onionpockets /

Bah, I'll never have that kind of speed, cause I weigh too much. The engine would never get up to speed in order to engage the simonini.

Speaking of which, how much did you pay to import that sucker?

Re: 50/50 done....

RICH! stop cockteasing me!!!!! you son of a bitch.

nathan, i got it used with 100 miles on it for 90 euros. i bought it from a guy that i was already buying a kickstart korado engine from.
