Well, obviously I'm going to have to be more than flexible on the price, LOL!
I had no idea what it was worth, based it on what I saw on Craigslist.Mods, please delete the post, if possible, thanks.
Thank you very much. I'm taking it off now.
I'm selling my wife's 1978 Honda Hobbit (PA-50-1) moped. It's in original, unmolested condition, as it was stored in a garage for at least 20 years prior to it being given to me to "get running".It's in remarkably nice shape with only a couple scratches on the front fender and tank having started to rust. It comes with its original tool kit, owner's manual, and
I am going to bite the bullet on my 2008 Revival TS and get the Tecnigas exhaust. However, everywhere I see them sold they're either out of stock or come from a place with a less than stellar recommendation.Any ideas on the best place to buy one of these pipes?Also, Just how much "modification" will I have to do to my bike to get it to fit?Thanks,Joe
Well, I got a 24 tooth rear sprocket from Heeters this weekend. After installation, I was amazed by how much of a difference it made. My cruising speed went from like 26 to 31 without losing much acceleration at all. First gear now stays in till about 15 mph.I'm looking at cheap mods here, so would I gain anything at all, if I put a unifilter and upjetted the carb? Or should I just save u
I'm going to definitely have go get a sprocket and exhaust....I've read on here that the sprocket and carb upgrades are not worth all that much without an exhaust.The engine just feels like it is cutting out when I hit 30 mph going downhill. I don't know if it's a fuel issue, a breathing issue, or a cdi issue.
What, generally, would be involved in a tune up to get it to 30 mph? I'm not looking into serious mods, yet.
I just bought a Tomos Revival and I really like the bike, but it seems to have trouble topping 25 mph on flat ground.Even when I go downhill and it nears 30, I start hearing a knocking sound that seems to be coming from the front end.Should I take the bike back to the dealer for repair, or is this something normal?Also, What's the quickest and/or easiest way to gain a few mph?Thanks,Joe
I pulled the carb yesterday, and it's a 68 main jet which corresponds to the Murray manual's information for a 2 hp Puch e50. I will look for that restriction in the intake.I'm going to upjet to either 70 or 72 when I get the powerfilter on.Exhaust will be my next move, after I get some cash.
I'm going to be installing a Powerfilter on my 1980 Murray. It has a Puch e50 engine which is stock (from what I can discern). I'm a bit confused about the type of carburetor I have on this machine, though....the Murray manual says it's a Bing 1/14/164 or a 1/14/163. On the moped wiki in the Bing section, there is not a mention of either of these carbs.Should the main jet have a
I have a 1980 Murray moped with a Puch e50 engine. I want to get some more top speed, so I am thinking of changing the sprockets to 18/42. Would my stock (otherwise) bike do ok with that setup?I'm also thinking of getting a hi-flow air filter and re-jetting the carb.Thanks,Joe
I got a Batavus moped today, and I believe something is frozen with the clutch because I can't even pedal it to get it to move. How do you go about removing the clutch in a Batavus 48 motor?Thanks,Joe
Do the new Tomos bikes that have electric starters have alternators that recharge the battery while running?Thanks,Joe
I covered up part of the intake and it ran worse.It will run fine, at least until it's given full throttle. What position should the needle valve in the carburetor be set on? Middle?Thanks,Joe
My 1980 Murray with a Puch e50 is bogging down from start to finish. At the start, unless I increase the throttle REALLY slowly, it will bog down. If I "floor" it at takeoff, the engine will die completely. At speed, when I'm at about 25 mph, if I move it to full throttle, it will bog down.The engine is stock with a 14mm Bing with a 68 main jet.Is this an issue that a bigger main
I'm going to be re-sealing the case halves on a Puch e50 engine and I'm thinking of using Yamabond 5. I have had luck re-sealing 2-cycle mower engines with this stuff, and am wondering if it will work with my Puch.Any thoughts?Thanks,Joe
Well,I got an engine on eBay....hopefully the replacement will not have that defect.It's a real shame, because it ran great.Joe
Last night I removed the kickstand from my Puch e50 engine to see where the leakage of tranny fluid was coming from. I found that there was a really bad crack that ran along the groove for the kickstand and up both sides of the back of the engine. I've since purchased another block, but I'm really worried about it cracking.Is this type of destruction normal for an e50?Thanks,Joe
Yeah, I'm sorry about the lack of pictures.The JB Weld stuff is on the rear of the case on either side of it.The grey matter is definitely oil based, but it's not reddish.Suffice it to say, I'm looking for a new engine case.Thanks,Joe
I just got my hands on a 1980 Murray Moped...and I know next to nothing about them.I changed out the gear oil (wasn't hard, as there was none in it) and soon noticed that I was getting some leakage in a couple of places: dark grey fluid from the kickstand, and red transmission fluid from the side of the transmission near the clutch cover.I am not too worried about the clutch cover stuff, bec
Still have a bunch of good parts left.The tool box is still available, as is the gas tank, carburetor (25 mph version), wiring, and engine.If there's no further interest, I'll put it all on Ebay.
Ok....no interest, so I'll reduce the price to $1300.
I'm putting my Tomos Revival up for sale because I'm going to test the waters of a traditional cycle.It is basically brand new with only 50 miles.I'm asking $1500 or best offer.Please let me know if you would like to see pictures, etc.
No Battery or turn signals.
Sorry, but I don't have the air filter or any of its parts.I do have the clutch and magneto covers in worn but undamaged condition.
Here are some pictures. I'm fairly sure I have the clutch/magneto covers, but not so sure about the rubber band and clip. I will look in my parts box.
I'll work on getting some pictures tonight.
I have a red 1976 Batavus moped. It is in excellent condition and complete down to the tool box on the back. Unfortunately the engine is frozen up and I don't have time (too many projects) to get it thawed out and up and running again.The fuel tank is very nice without any rust and it has all the switches, wiring, etc in excellent shape.I'd like to get $100 for the whole thing, but if
I live in the DC area.I can be there tomorrow to pick it up.
