It's literally made of aluminium panels riveted and bolted to a tubular steel frame. I don't see any sign of fancy rubber body mounts. The engine sits on a subframe, but that's quite secure.Here's where the fork meets the frame. For scale perspective, those are 51mm fork tubes! Those six massive bolts securing the headset don't seem to be going anywhere.
Oh, man I feel for you. I made the mistake of casually attemping to watch Grave of the Fireflies myself once... it's not a movie one should watch alone.
I don't think it was play in the wheel so much as the wind buffeting its massive surface area with no fourth wheel to resist it.
Replacement parts are tricky, because the engine isn't used on any other US market vehicles. So, you either pay big bucks for "official" replacements, or you buy from overseas. I had to replace the air filter housing, ordered it from Korea pretty cheap, and then if you need english it was used in a UK city car.With the governor, 40, without, supposedly they can do 70, more than fa
Hyundai just makes the engine, the body is made by one Westward Industries in Canada.I'm guessing the one you used to have was a Cushman? But yeah, tipping... Not so much a problem on the muddy road as it is on our hairpins. The previous owner had ripped out the lateral thrust alarm and put in a clock, and I'm soooo glad I asked him to put the lateral thrust alarm back, it really help
Sweet of you to do that. Does that trike have both a drum and a caliper brake on the front?

Cheap, small, efficient, and interesting? Check. Car? Not quite but, here goes...I recently bought one of these deathtraps, here's it when I picked it up from port:Got it up at my friend's workshop atm while I fix a few things, here's it with the hood off:
I tried to quit facebook several times, and always came crawling back... It tempts me with promises of social interaction and connectivity, and then crushes me with how wonderful other people's lives appear and how no one responds to my not so peachy life.The last straw was getting into some political debate with someone on FB... and I was stuck thinking, I love this person too much to unfrie
Although the above post was clearly flippant, I feel obligated to note that:• 3 mile island is exactly the type of nuclear reactor I'm saying is woefully inefficient and should not be built.• Typical home- and utility- scale solar panels do not require REEs.• While most wind turbines do use REE magnets, they are sometimes made with electromagnets instead, as larger generators usually are
You could use this battery from Treats, I keep it under my Streetmate's seat where the lead acid battery used to go, it's a bit less than 1/2 the size and 1/4 the weight of the original:https://www.treatland.tv/trail-tech-sealed-12V-battery-pack-p/trail-tech-battery-040-batt3.7.htmI use this to charge it at home:https://www.all-battery.com/nimpackcharger_01025.aspxAnd there's loads

I used to haul pillion passengers on my Streetmate all the time, including one guy who was probably about 300 lbs. Running a kit, pipe, and beefier, longer shocks, that is. There's so much room on that seat, I'd lie down and take a nap on it.

Have you uncovered that bracket I PM'ed you about?
I do use the passenger pegs on my Streetmate when going into a tuck, so I understand wanting to have your feet back there. Could also be he's running a pipe that interferes with the TOMOS footpegs.Ground clearance would be another legit reason for dispensing with the TOMOS footpeg bracket, although a) longer shocks would be better for that, b) you sacrifice the protection the footpeg bracket
LibreVox.org has public domain audiobooks, including some of my favourites like the Bible and the Communist Manifesto.And if you've really got a long time to listen, there's The Silmarillion.
The little metal strip is present on your flywheel then, I take it? If so, I think you've established either the pickup or its wires are bad by testing it against a good stator (verified by the 2 wire CDI) and two new 4-wire CDIs.I suppose you might be able to test by hooking up a multimeter to it and moving the flywheel by hand, but I don't know what reading would be considered good or
If the 2 wire CDI works but 4 wired CDIs don't, assuming you have everything connected properly, then it sounds to me like either:- someone swapped the streetmate's flywheel for an A35 flywheel - like an 01-02 Revival flywheel which would have starter teeth but possibly no metal strip for the pickup? I've never actually seen one.or- the pickup is bad
As someone who loves her own Streetmate, please don't be making troll posts about it. They get little enough respect as it is without this.
No pedalsNo lightsNo rear suspensionNo padding on the seat!?No styleNo moped
I grew up awful sheltered. Wasn't able to get into music at all until I was 18, and never saw anything more than bands playing in cafés until one time in 2010 when I was hitchhiking from Vermont to Oregon, someone gave me tickets to this GrassRoots festival near Ithaca. There, a navajo punk band "Blackfire" became the first band that ever got me to dance.
Ohh, sweet! Maybe I can point my brother-in-law at the LSLB.
Y'all got it easy. My Streetmate will cost $140 + insurance to get it back on the road for one year. Under 2 HP bikes are cheaper, but still $65 a year is probably higher than anywhere else.
Fukushima was another case. TEPCO was warned four times their plant had major vulnerabilities, but they never made changes due to the Japanese cultural obsession with saving face. Later they admitted to have knowingly abstained from safety improvements, fearing the consequences of public opinion. Now I get radioactive debris washing up on my beach!Seriously, I've gone down to the beach wit
Hey, that's neat! For all my research, I've rarely talked with anyone who actually works on the things.But, yeah, enriching and reprocessing, the more you do it, the more energy you can extract, but also the better the bombs you can build. I think the reactors Canada makes and sells to places like latin america run on unenriched uranium, so they pose the least proliferation risk, but,
Ooooh, that Jawa type 20 is amazing! Only pic of a bike posted to this thread yet that I'd prefer over my Streetmate - yet, so, here:this one's not as nice, but it has all the things: pedals, leg shields, long seat, luggage rack:...now there's four.

Personally I don't care about registration class. My Streetmate was technically registered as a "motor scooter" because it's over 2 HP, and having that instead of "moped" meant I could carry a passenger, ride in any lane position, and legally run a kit. So I'd be all over a 125cc moped if such a thing existed.
