An exquisite Motron, if I do say so myself.
You should be able to get an 11 tooth front sprocket, and I understand they make 12 and 13, but those require that you do some case grinding as the chain will hit. You could also go down to a 36 rear sprocket and a stock motor can easily hit 40 on level ground. Definitely get a bigger carb and intake.Send a pic of the bike. One cannot have enough Motrons.
I went to Upper Arlington several years ago to pick up parts for Rocketman. Avery showed me his Charger and so many of his cool bikes while I visited. I loved seeing his rare bikes.Fast forward two years, and Richard, Avery, and I were riding together at Mopitt last month on bikes that Richard owned or had rebuilt. Richard's bike chewed up a main gear and he had to drop out. I got separat
He's been bitten by the bug. Now he has to get all his friends hooked.
Oh, sure. Sponsor a ride to a football stadium, but help me out with my 30 Ballpark Challenge? Nope.Lol
The OP mentioned his kids being past that phase in regards to mopeds.This is a foreign concept to me.
Yeah, I think I sent you a motor with a bolt instead of the proper cap, Richard. I'm sure I got it back with a good cap...
So now I need a Motron that flies? It figures.
My daughter just graduated from the University of Cincinnati with her Master's in Nursing. After the ceremony and a lunch at Hooters, her idea, I asked the wife and son to indulge me on my quest for another stadium pic. This t-shirt and model have some miles on them. Five down, 25 more to go!
I had done all my wife's laundry and stripped the bed for her the day before Thanksgiving. The bed WAS bare. She pulled out a bunch of stuff to wrap packages for her family and headed off to the west side of Cleveland for dinner. She's spent the last few nights on a bare bed wrapped up in a blanket, instead of making the bed properly.This year's holiday photo includes 5 mopeds; H
^^^plus it's a Motron story
Remember, when passers by smile at you on this bike, they are laughing at you, not with you. It is a nice looking model, though. No sun-faded plastic .
It's not really the money, it's how much you piss off the wife that's important.
Less than 90 minutes from Cleveland...
My answer has to involve Motrons, of course. Every green Medalist I have found came with a book rack on the gas tank. The rack never came on the Sprint or Fairway yellow models, and the black Classic that I have came with a book rack of a slightly different design.So I suppose it would depend upon what was going on at the factory one day as to whether the red or silver models came with a rack or
Saddle bags, front rack, and leg shields for all that extra-nerdy goodness, and free as well. You couldn't ask for much more.
Do you need a V1 manual or a Roadmaster manual? I'm pretty sure I have both somewhere
My buddy rebuilt my E50 with stronger clutch springs. The single speed "feels" like it's shifting when the springs completely grab. Could this be the third gear that you feel?
$100 plus free shipping for MA members, after all it's just a 58 year old bike and there are always so many of them listed these days. (That was sarcasm)
I noticed it needs a speedo cable. It may have originally came with a pancake exhaust. I added a bracket to accommodate a stock long pipe.
I'm debating what to do with mine. I have way too many minarelli bikes, especially Motrons.I've just serviced everything, installed new tires, tubes, rim strips, petcock, and any needed cables. The tail light is not original, I grabbed a trailer light from Tractor Supply. It's got a genuine SHA 14:12 with a 12 mm intake.The engine has been rebuilt by someone who knows what he

The variator in the front is farther apart at start presenting you the smaller size giving you better take off. As your rpm's increase, in closes and presents you the larger size, giving you faster speed.At the wheel, that variator is closer together at start giving you more torque as as your rpm's increase, it spreads apart giving you more speed.So the variators work opposite of each o

Definitely Motron.I'll have to check, but there may be 3 different color combinations. Usually it's red, white, and black, but they made a model similar to a UPS color and those are brown and gold. I actually have tank side stickers that I could scan, so you could get a really good sample. Just edit the colors to come up with the brown and gold.I also have small square stickers for th
Everyone on Moped Army tells you that a non-running bike should be $100. And they are going to want you to ship it to them for free. So expect to not only give the bikes away but be out another $50 per bike to cover the balance of shipping. Then they get the bike running, give it a power wash, and flip it for $500. It makes one feel great about a lot of the members here.Yes, this is sarcasm.
Do you have a map for the ride?Sure would be cool to get a photo of mopeds in front of progressive field and first energy stadium for my 30 ballpark photo challenge
I picked up one about 3 years ago in Buffalo for $350. After new tires, handlebars, and an engine rebuild, I probably have another $350 into it, so $800 ought to be a good starting point these days.
V1's CAN take 3 different fan sets, an aluminum one, and 2 different plastic ones. The fan can be compatible on the older 2 styles but not the newer plastic one.I saw a General the other day and it had the newer plastic one. Not sure if that style is specific to the General which might have a different head.Do a search on here to figure out if you want a 103 or 108...
