Looking to get my hands on a white plastic carb cover for my 1967 Honda P50, it is the last piece I need to get on with the restoration of my moped. needs to have all 3 mounting lugs intact. am pretty sure the same part was for all years they made these bikes.Also looking for any other engine parts and electrical, as you can never have to many spares when it comes to something they only made for a
I have one the same, Finding frame parts for it has been a pain in the arse. But in doing so I've found out a fair bit about all the "versions"In Spain is a X20.. weirdly enough they do a X40 too but theres has different forks, more proper bike forks, larger 14" wheels and longer seat, and different style rack.In Germany its a X40, or AX40. also there versions and the Spanish o
Ok I've managed to pick up a unmolested (i hope) Magnum X motor, with 17mm bing and intake. Im hoping this motor and carb will be the start of a quickish and reliable engine to drop into my project bike. so i can restore the original motor to stock.. because other than the motor and exhaust I'm restoring the chassis to bone stock.. its a X40.At the minute the original motor was fitted wi
Glad it turned out ok mopedlar.
4 stroke mineral, or semi synthetic 10w40 make sure its motorcycle oil, NOT car oil as it will knacker your clutch plates, also adjust the clutch its the screw and locknut on the right side as it sorta describes the "feeling" that you mentioned. you tube a video on adjusting the Honda C90/70/50 clutch. takes about 1litre (just under 34 fl oz US) if its anything like the proper Honda eng
C50 performance pipes or pit bike pipes as long as they fit. I'm unsure how large as in dimensions these bikes are. Pitbikes are physically small so the pipes can be a little short for a more full size bike. But a passport pipe would breathe a little better than the c50. As the tube diameter should be a bit larger. A free breathing filter and some jetting and you could have a little more powe
Over here the description of what the now rider would be like is pretty accurate.. most moped riders here only have them to relive there youth, as teenagers all have 125cc plastic scooters or dirt style bikes, the licensing laws make owning a 50cc... or a kitted moped silly when you have to do the same basic training test as you do to ride a 125.. the only diff being a 1 year period at age 16, an
Well none of the 2 stroke pipes would work. Look for exhausts for Chinese pit bikes. Over here there's a whole industry of aftermarket parts for them. From new frames to complete engines.
Ah its fine mopedlar, im way over in the UK. am more your old school large bearded biker sort.. think grumpy Scottish biker and you get the idea. But im glad to help. give me a few mins and ill go sort out the print.
The leg shield can be found in Thailand (ebay.com search), but there repop, and tbh id be dubious about the quality of them, i know i bought a set for my C90, and it was so bad i binned them, and went and got a NOS set of proper Honda ones and the badges, even if it was 4x the price.
to be honest though its fine if you are handy with wrenching. i can strip and rebuild those small horizontal honda motors in under a hr from a pile of parts, as long as its all there and you can source the parts, it wont be a huge issue to rebuild the motor and refurb it, but if not it can prove expensive to get someone else to do it.
Thanks for the email mopedlar, i shall do my best to get it redrawn properly. leave it with me.
i dunno what the going rate is in the US for them here that would command perhaps £600-800 depending on how rough it was a mid condition runner perhaps £800-1200, in mint condition, better than showroom.. £2000-2500 ($2250-2750) and yes missing correct leg-shield is an issue, even here where they seem more plentiful its a difficult part to source. as it was unique to that particular model the elec
I own the later version the C90e Cub. If the kickstart isn't working then it can be a major job to fix. Best place to join is the Honda C90 group on FB (UK based but lots of C100, CM90/91 owners) David silver spares is best place for parts genuine OEM. They are in UK and in US. The engines are easy to work on. What you need is a complete bike with no major missing parts. Make sure it has the
Look I have spoken to Bob both in the thread and privately. It is basically no one else's business. How or what arrangement we have came to. And feel free to go do your own ones on a vinyl cutter. I think you will find quite quickly that you would not be able to replicate those by that method. I own a large format cutter and printer. But it cannot do metallic and white ink. Therefore I send t
Thank you Bob. Very nice of you to help.
I live in the UK. And postage to the states ain't exactly cheap. Nor is the printing free. So no I have no issue offering a discount. But nor can I afford to be handing stuff away. I asked for help to perfect a set for the US bikes I had a full set for the UK bike off my own so I could offer something that was not out there. As a benefit for people restoring a bike. I know that isn't mo
Instant speed improvement.. unbolt that 50cc and whack in a YX140 or US equivalent basically any Horizontal Honda clone motor will fit in there, i own a Honda C90 Cub.. mines is pure rebuilt and restored stock honda.. as that is what i wanted, but the owners group members here in the UK build some wild versions using Chinese clone engines. that do silly speeds for 4 inch drum braked bikes.. the
Right i think i have everything dialled in measurement wise, Gonna print off 3 full sets and one with just the main decals and not all the epa warnings etc. to see how they turn out. I shall keep you posted but it will be a few days until i get the files back from the printer.. if they do a decent job! If i am happy i will get more done and sell them on. remember I'm based in the UK. so the p
if no scanner get a sheet of glass, lay the decal down, lay the glass over, so it flattens everything, straight down view with camera.. job done.. make sure its set for a high resolution photo.. 16mp or above... that my ghetto scanner tip... and make sure the glass is crystal clear.
No worries, am glad to help. :D
heres the jpeg with colour boosted and lines enhanced in photoshop.. but id still prefer to had draw it. as if you look the typeface in "rules the street" is not straight so a simple trace wont cut it. thats why a scan would be a great help as it holds the image dead flat.And the traced illustrator version..
Get me a scan if you can, if not i shall endeavour to do what i can with it.
its ok, but be better if you got it into a proper scanner, the colours arent an issue, its the lines.. the colours can be replicated off the one on that t-shirt pic.. Leave it with me, i shall have a bash at it tonight after I've eaten etc.. (its 7pm here)
Ah right, get a decent scan of it at 300-600 dpi, and send it to me. i shall redraw it in illustrator. then it can be resized to any size you like and printed onto modern iron on decal sheet. and the trace function sucks in illustrator, its faster to just do it by hand, and it produces a far cleaner finished piece, the thing with trace and vectorise is that it produces a file so large and made up
here i boosted the colour a little and enlarged it.. if it was a higher res photo it be better for reproducing. be better as well iff you had laid out the print flatter, or ironed the back before photographing. so i could see the line-work cleaner
Thats a honda C90 Cub thats been electrified, i own a nice restored C90.
Redraw it, i recreate decals kits from old pics and measurements.. if im lucky i get to scan in old ones ive pulled from bikes. Im a graphic designer. so doing that wouldn't be a big issue. so get your crayons out! :D
It would be easy enough to reproduce in photoshop... or even better illustrator.. and then make a new modern copy. the colours would last better too
bobqt50 are you sure the Yamaha decal on frame is 90 mm long by 25mm high? or is that including the clear background, as when i scaled the text, to 90mm long to keep the correct aspect ratio without stretching the letters, its only 21.3mm high. just to clarify its just the width and height of the actual white Yamaha with the black stroke around it i need the dimensions for, not the clear part of t
