Attempt to make it fast or screw it

A S /

My experience at this point is limited to cleaning carbs, cutting gaskets, adding performance exhausts, springs and upjetting. All on hobbits.

I got my hands on a Columbia Commuter with a sachs 505/1A and realized it might be a pain in my ass. Runs well and does 25 mph.

Is this worth trying to increase the speed? Will adding a performance pipe and upjetting the square bing make any difference at all? This thing does not like hills....I do like the look of the bike however.

I'd hate to take this thing apart, get parts and not get results.

What speed increases can I expect adding performance parts? (Within the realm of my experience, pipe, upjet?)

Is it worth it or should I sell this guy and try and find another hobbit?
