A new freewheel and sealed bearings that fit snowflakes for the Maxi Sport.New fuel line for the Pinto.New tools for the fleet.
Kevin is a solid dude. He helped John K. Recover his stolen Maxi after spotting it on Craigslist. John was happy as hell to get it back. He'll be happier when I have time to figure out WTF the thieving did to it...Again, props to Kevin for his instrumental role in recovering the bike.
I thought that bike looked familiar...Yeah, it's NOT a liquor cycle. Ever.
Thanks Tyler. I just added three more. The comparison with braces off the Hammer and the Jammer, and a Jammer Shoe on a Hammer.The Jammer will need the radii of the slot filed square in order to fit the Hammer hub. The Jammer shoes were also a bit heavier than the Hammer shoes: 35.5gr for the Hammer and 37gr for the Jammer.
Maize, I'm afraid that my oldass phone doesn't do quality photos, but try these on for size.
The fit wasn't too bad. Between the two clutches, the average hub arm width was 12.67mm and the average shoe slot was 12.91mm.I did notice that the slots in the shoes are slightly tapered and have a touch of slop when they're not sprung together. I took both clutches apart and swapped bits until I had one that seemed to fit together best. I'll put the other one in my brother's
One minor correction. The Jammer shoes may have a non-aluminum slice in the shoe. Need to take one apart when I get home from work. Probably gonna Loctite 'em too.
Ordered two and received them today. One box has "Made in Taiwan" written on it, the other had "Made in Scotland" written on it. I wouldn't be surprised if somebody got one with "Made by Keebler Elves" on the box.Build quality looks pretty good at first glance. I got out my v2 Hammer for comparison and aside from the difference in friction material and graphics,
Which air filter?Vegas is at a similar altitude to Tucson. For a otherwise unmodified 14mm Bing, I generally start with a 70 on a stock filter and a 74 with the Treats metal filter, then fine tune as-needed. When I tossed my modded stock pipe for a Proma GP, I had to jet up to a 74 to keep things copacetic.58 is good if you're running a 12mm Bing with an improved air filter at 2500 ft.
As previously stated, it's an Elite. Not a moped. Deets on this model:http://www.motorscooterguide.net/Honda/Elite80/Elite80.htmlSeconded on checking hondaspree.net. There's also a Honda Elite 80 Yahoo! group.
I bought one off Brad during one of his last parts sales. Bearings were fine, needed new seals. Shafts, shims and bearings were A-OK. I'd bet this one's even nicer.I see an oily brake pad as an opportunity to put on a 15mm pad over an 11mm pad; totally worth the extra stopping power.
That hole is normal. Just clean the crud out of it.
So far, things are off to a good start. More riding, less wrenching.I hope one of use gets that photo ticket from the Ruthrauff Rd. cameras. I'd also love to take that one into the court. It's a 45 zone, we might have been doing 31-32 and the camera isn't supposed to go off unless you're doing like 11 over.
Nice! Had to "import" my '75 Maxi frame from Ohio.Found that Allen bolt set for an E50 last night. I'll bring it by later.
I wonder if that frame came to Tucson? We have very few Maxis here, most of the bikes seem to be Vespas and Kinetics.
I hate how minute amounts of trash in the gas tank cannot be dislodged while cleaning it, but always manage to come loose and find their way to the fuel tap/line/carb while you're out riding and bring the fun to a sputtering halt.
Tucson, the land of very few Puchs. Sad when one of the prevalent models of local peds are fricken' Kinetics.Dude, I have a few E50s if things don't shake out.If you find a Si, or even just a frame, lemme know!
Zach,You gut that Pinto you were riding at the first Shell Shocked?
Here are those clutch parts. You're welcome to them.
I've got some clutch parts that came with a 207. Shoes and a nice clutch bell. I'll get a pic this afternoon. You can have 'em if you want 'em.
For reference, here's the intersection of the wreck:http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Tucson,+AZ&ll=32.227804,-110.94814&spn=0.002208,0.004772&oe=UTF-8&safe=active&hnear=Tucson,+Pima,+Arizona&gl=us&t=m&z=19&layer=c&cbll=32.227804,-110.94814&panoid=wpFE2OYoJ9vb_dyxAcpSHw&cbp=12,104.33,,0,0It's a weird intersection for anyone taking a left off of
Sachs Madass saddle, maybe?
Damn dude, that sucks! I'll keep an eye out for 'em.
My day job pays for my moped habit; I consider it a necessary evil.
My Ciao SC is not slow.Big talk from someone who needs a variator to blast.
A metallic green 2HP Maxi with a production stamp of 2/1977. Bought it at Lambert's Auto Salvage in Manchester, NH for a whole $10. They used to have a pile of bikes just inside the front gate, on the right. There was a yellow Hobbit (PA50 I) in the pile too, I remember checking both over before going for the Maxi (the green got me). Took it home in the back of our '84 Toyo Wagon and stu
I believe it means "Super Confort". Saw it mentioned in a manual or sales brochure at some point.
