You should be happy that the taxpayers are no longer paying for his room, board, health and general welfare bills. Before incarceration he was only ripping off fellow greedy persons who somehow figured he had the secret sauce to make more $ than was logically possible...

5 June 1943 the BMA (bicyclettes a moteur auxilliare) class of cycles were split into cyclomoteurs (less than 50 cc) and velomoteurs (50cc to 125cc)The speed restrictions were enacted on 1 November 1963 for cyclomoteur class bikes in France.> Tri-ped Dave O.D.B.

That pipe is designed for regulatory compliance and not speed. All the potential of a 19mm carb is being throttled down by a tiny exit on the silencer.If you still have the stock AV10 silencer you can modify that, but you need to keep in mind there is a balance between performance (noisier) and neighbour tolerance (quieter).
The Novi (or replacement Wovi) style coil will not last very long with the capacitor from the cdi blasting it for every spark. Maybe someone with a 3D printer could print out fake covers that look same-same to a original looking external coil...
i always check that fasteners are tight on any assembly we buy - new or used.The cartridge usually has anticorrosion on it not really grease, so you want to jam some goodly GP grease into the cartridge. Also make sure on the crank the old shyte grease is chased out, then fill it with goodly stuff.The balls should have a light lube film on then, same with the movable cheek where it touches the cen
Open the head to 45mm and cut 7-12° from the angle of the piston crown so the gasses are forced to the center of the head. Stock closed chamber (higher compression) head has a issue with spark plug being very shrouded, so you want to dress the bumps that deflect the flow, and also unshroud the spark plug, so the fresh charge can fill where you want to have the flame kernel start right at the spar
If you run a 15mm or better carb then you need a exit that is at least 11mm so you have containment in the chamber body but not back pressures.> Graham Motzing Wrote:> -------------------------------------------------------> That's good to know, do they need derestricted or do they run good> as-is?>> I just like the form factor, they are kinda racy looking but not> obnoxi
Looks suspiciously like Anthony (Carlos Danger) Weiner...
I will write up a "beginners guide" just for AV10 modifications of stock pieces. The suggestion for searching and obtaining a previously enjoyed Motobecane or MBK AV10 rather than a knock off version is a very good idea. The fit and finish of the knockoffs seem to leave a lot to be desired and the low price lack of quality control gives a lot of porosity on the casings that can be prob
Airsal had core shift problems in the past which had the exhause and transfers higher or lower than desired which created a shyte show on the consumers who were trying to just slap on a kit and go. You can set datum and index for these deviations from norm. I use the extra fine sharpies for the piston marking, I can get those at a dollar store in a 5 pack (blue red green 2xblack ) but any perman

The axle is a modified version of the Peerless 100, bolt pattern for the sprocket is the 4 through bolts, the other 2 bolts are to keep it together when you have removed the sprocket to service or to relube the diff. SUper easy to work on and lots of premade sprockets out there for #35 chain. To work #41 (and derivatives of that series) you can search out various ''weld on" sprock

Port a stock AV10 jug and clean up the carter a bit and she can spin to 8500rpm while staying reliable
Stock stock they only spin at 5100rpm, little mild porting will put her to the 8500rpm range. The reeds give a longer usable curve so you will have a bit more fun than a warmed up AV7
No spark, replace the dang condenser with a external one. Use a Delco 6 cyl from 1960s or a Bosch one from similar vintage, disconnect the old one (blue wire with black stripe) Disconnect the 6v terminal on the back of the magneto and make a jumper to the engine, disconnect the wire going from the grey coil wire to the master switch from hell (use the decompressor to also stop the engine) .

Indeed - companies will build to the specification the importer requests, so if they have a very wide tolerance range they will manufacture to the advantage of their profit margin (ie cheapest as possible), also 'name brands' have same manufacturing procedures which are profit oriented plus QC to ensure the products conform to the requested specifications.> P D Wrote:> ------------
Indeed - excess reversion can be caused by too much advance on the ignition timing

If the carb is on a angle you might need to muck with the float height a little if the bowl weeps.If it is the fuel fog coming out of the carb inlet then that is a normal 2 stroke thing.If it is coming out from the breather holes then it is fuel percolating from the vibrations of the engine.

M5 with 0,9 pitch which is the old frenchie metric pitch for bolts.Current spec for M5 is 0,5 and 0,8 so it is close but will lock up if you try a modern one with out chasing it with a tap you will be sad.

NOPE - best way is to use the new crush gasket and a mechanical locking device if the thread in the jug are slightly worn. If the threads are severely worn then you need to score a oversize nut. https://www.treatland.tv/motobecane-replacement-OVERSIZE-exhaust-nut-32-5-p/mbk-stock-exhaust-nut-oversize.htm. The 0,5mm larger nut is same pitch as original nut, so it will self tap into the cylinder.
Our old school 'standard' measure chief engineer retired, our new chief engineer is very bothered by the 'standard' shyte that was designed, fabricated and appended to machines which are metric. Slowly getting rid of the 'standard' shyte and replacing it with metric (YAY) makes life so much easier.> Graham Motzing Wrote:> ---------------------------------------
