is this bike sold? if not, i'm interested...
Want to buy a Tomos Streetmate R in good condition somewhere within driving distance from DC. Willing to pay fairly, even low end generously for a bike in really good condition. Lemme know!
bought this party kit from treats a few months ago for $125, haven't even opened it up. awesome stuffed crank for puch e50's, and includes all the bearing and seals you need. if you're running a kit on your e50, you'll eventually need a crank like this anyway.full description hereagain, brand new, will sell for $75 including shipping, OBO. lemme know, thanks.
need an age requirement up in this joint.
VA will title mopeds - i titled one last week. you don't need one, but they will still issue one if requested as a proof of ownership.the problem is registering it because you probably would need a safety inspection, and not sure the average moped would pass under motorcycle regulations.
77 pinto, putting in an airsal 70cc, 15mm bing, tecno boss. i was going to take my chance with the stock crankshaft until i talked to sue n, who has one of the baddassiest pinto builds on the site. she insisted on a performance crank, and i'm inclined to believe her. think i'll go with treats super stuffy - thanks for the advice!
you for real, or were you just looking for a place to use that pic?
treats super stuffy or 1977 racing crank?any suggestions or experience with either?
ahh, i see - so i want to finish/bevel the port in the direction of the piston movement so that the rings will have an easier time passing through the ports. does this improve performance, or just minimize wear on piston rings?a couple last questions - do i finish all four ports of the airsal? and how do i do this anyway? metal file? sand paper?thanks!
owned 7 or so peds, but never bothered getting a kit until now. reading up on the airsal 70cc kit for the puch, it says in the wiki that i should "finish the port edges" - now, i don't want to assume i know what that means and totally f my kit, so can anyone go into more detail as to what that entails?
i'm sure that hoodie will protect you juuuust fine.
hm, every news article i read said that mississippi teen was charged with capital murder, but victim's family refused to pursue the death penalty due to religious reasons. not sure where you get your news from timmy, but just fyi, the onion and colbert are not real - just for laffs, yknow?
daaamn, harley, that is a hardcore wreck.NC Crash
so...article is dated 9/22/11, which would make it yesterday my man, not last year.when it comes to getting swiped by a car, run over, and dragged a mile, mopeds and scooters are all in the same boat.
article hereRIP. pretty nasty accident description, not far from where that mopeder got killed last year on july 4th, and those two riders who got hit by the silver mercedes in october. you guys in MD riding on those parkways got to watch yourself, cuz the cars are obviously not watching out for you.
I tried riding it on local streets, but got buzzed by cars trying to pass as close as possible. I feel like if I don't keep up with traffic I'm going to get clipped one day and eat it hard.Plus, I saw that YouTube "Throw A Kit" video and was moved to tears.
Its true that the 50cc kits are the same price, but I think they have some advantages. They're quieter, less prone to failure and stressing out the crank, and the new ones with bigger ports are supposed to be pretty quick. I've ridden on 50cc stock scooters that hit 50. Benji at treats gave the 50cc tccd kit a thumbs up too.
Okay, this is my plan based on my budget and expertise:70cc airsal (or the 50cc tccd??), 15mm bing w 15mm intake, tecno estoril, blue springs in the clutch and 14 tooth front sprocket for pickup. I figure low 40's comfortably with good hill eating capability - does that sound right? 70cc airsal or 50cc tccd? And what are the chances this setup will blow up on me if I drive conservatively?
pm'd for the pinto covers...
@oe800, if i go with the 65 metra, is it worth it go to the 19mm phbg at the same time, or just run it with a smaller bing? will a phbg even fit a pinto frame?
got myself a 77 pinto in great shape, thanks to some stand up guys in baltimore. problem is that it's a little too pokey to ride in DC, and i want to get it to go quick off the line, with a modest top speed of 40 or so. i'm doing research, but wanted to see if people with experience with e50's or the pinto had any suggestions... good kit for an e50, with great low end and modest t
that's the one weekend i'm not in town - but if any of you guys are down for some wrenching, PM me. i have a pinto i'm trying fix up and need some help.
i've been in the city for a couple of years - it's scooter country out here. being asian and riding an ST, i'm often mistaken as the above mentioned delivery guy. but i'd be up for a local ride if one gets thrown together.
whoops, wrong thread! will kick this over to buy/sell..
if so, i want it. preferably within driving distance from DC, preferably from someone who has no interest in making money...well, a lot of it. i'll pay fairly.
there are no custom moped shops, but tons of custom auto shops over in maryland, by hyattsville. if you find one that's not doing any work, they'd probably be happy and more than qualified to trick out a moped, as long as you have an idea of what you want and will pay for it. i had a shop fab a bracket for an exhaust, and they were really cool about it. but you would have to tell them
