Tyler - I didn't know that about the Peugeot dealers and TSM's and I think you are the second person on here to mention something like...or maybe it was about the Grand Prixs... either way, good to know. Also, thanks as always for helping me with my collection.I also intentionally left names out so the owners could chime in for the most part and when I read back I realized a couple alr
Here's some photos for quick reference:Motobecane 50EV: Turkish 105 "Cobra":
Ohh shit, I also forgot Kevin Meuller/Orange Robin had another Peugeot Fox, so add that to that count. Maybe some of the Spicy Boys can chime in with what's up with that bike. I had to wear him down to get mine from him even after knowing him for years.
I can add some insight on the peugeot related front...Here's some to add to the existing list/count that I have:Peugeot Fox - RedBatavus Mondial - BlueBatavus Grand Prix - BlueI know of several Mondials and Grand Prix in the states, so they may not really be that rare...I think if I tried I could come up with at least 20 Grand Prix I know of.Here's a few that I have that are not on Jason
I am not aware of many riders in Des Moines, but I have rode in it several times on my own. It's got some fun roads and spots. If you skate, the new skatepark, which is now like the largest in the US, is right downtown and quick access to some of the more fun routes I have ridden there.When I first got into mopeds, there seemed to be a few people there as I think I bought like 10 bikes in one
I'm in the process of moving up to Michigan and won't have all my stuff up there until mid December, but if you haven't found one by then, send me a PM here so I get a notification and I will look through it. I have all sorts of weird stock peugeot stuff, may have one of these for you.
I am guessing this is a third party replacement engine. If so, here's a couple of items to check:#1. Make sure it is air tight. We purchased a third party engine like this years ago for a raffle build once and that thing leaked from every sealing surface (crank seals, head, base gasket, decomp seal) and then even the cases cause the castings were so poor. I've even had Malossi cases and
Title says it all. Looking for a general 5 star tank - Will consider beat ones. Let me know what you got and what you want for it.
Here's a simple trick to try before going all out on starter clutch shoe mods, if the starter clutch dip is your issue:Use the closer starter shoe spring posts, so that the springs have less tension on them.This makes the starter shoes grab almost instantly, which is a bit obnoxious while pushing your bike, but in most my experience has been sufficient to get rid of the starter shoe dip in rp
One of a couple peugeot dirt peds I got:
Graham, I designed/copied and cut those on a plotter. I can scrounge up the files if you need them.For reference on decal sets, this place will send to US and their prices are awesome and they have almost everything except TSM interestingly:https://moped-lovers.com/moped-lovers-autocollants-stickers/
I don't have the peugeot codes, if you are a purist. However I did find a good/comparable pearl metallic white basecoat/clearcoat that I think looks good on mine. Your are not likely going to find anyone in the US who has one without fade, so no one will know the difference. Check the picture of mine below (lighting does hide the pearl a bit). If you like it, I can track down my can of paint
The weekend is drawing near. Hopefully you have been working on some cardio...Below is a map of the track layout and general details for arriving at the event:Please enter via the drive marked by the yellow line, just to the west of Masters Drive. Pull up to the pit/camping area. Don't block large out building to that area's South. From there we will organize any parking as needed.You ar
Two week notice.Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces as well making some new friends.
Thanks to MopedGP Midwest (specifically Shane, Tom, Jesse, James, Aric, and two others I am completely brainfarting), we have much more information on our timing/lap counting system for this race!Also, as a point of reference, this course is setup more like a rallycross course, not a motorcross course. So, don't worry about having to do doubles and all that jazz. Almost any bike stands a chan

That's why the rules are a) very forgiving regarding frame and b) allowing for as large of a pitcrew as you would like. We hope to see some curio

I am confident it will go down again next year, the format/location might different is all.

I also missed the other big question here.If it was my baby this year, I would let you race in at least our unlimited class no questions asked and I would likely let you race in the variated class.We typically do class by class open sessions for 20minutes to get base lines on lap times and pole positions. In the worst case for you, if your bike demonstrated you had an advantage, I would still let
> Brett Epp Wrote:> Does anyone have any info about the track? I would like to start> figuring out gearing.I typically organize the Midwest GP, but with doing Bakers Dozen this year, Shane Johnson and Tom Harmet were kind enough to step up to keep the momentum at the track.Trackwise, here's the webpage for the track itself that has some description:https://www.61kartway.com/our-fac
Derbis are great for moped people who don't want to ride mopeds. Had one in the past, sold it for more peugeots. haha.
Jesse, I will definitely be there.Bike wise, if I can get to them in time, I will have my stock race peugeot that is now parallelgrammed for the hell of it. And then I will have another parallelgrammed peugeot with the mvt cylinder/pipe on it. It's nothing too crazy. Then I may try another single speed peugeot again, just to be the only belt driven in non-variated class.Depending on Tom and S
Normally, I organize the event, but this year Shane Johnson and Tom Harmet are.I will hit them up and tell them that they got folks asking the big questions here.In the mean time, the track is great, the past 3 years have all been a blast. The track has lights, awesome elevation changes, and the owners are cool and helpful.Daniel, if you or Alex or other Seattle peeps can get to Omaha and just wan
The wiki has had a document in French with some good starting points for tuning a 102. I translated it a while ago for some people. I just added that translation to the wiki if you want it as a reference.
Sweet.I can confirm for others that if you can find the drum and clutch off this specific setup will bolt right onto a regular 103 crank. With the XP specific stuff, you do lose the starter shoes. However, I think the raffle bike indian 105/Cobra thing still had starter shoes, so it may be an option for those who want that. I think Turkey/India as a source for parts is something a lot of us states
Jbot, I think what you are describing is more or less the setup from the XP. Here's the photos from the manual on that bike:
This is all about deciding the tradeoffs as usual. If you want to keep pedal start that adds a major complexity. However, if that is not your concern, then I think there are a lot of options and putting on something from a different bike is doable and gets even more doable as I posted in the past if you go clutch pulley.That being said, Lee, the trick with the hobbit vario/clutch would be the tape
