SOLD! Lauri picked it up yesterday. Kind of sorry to see it go, but I don't have time to work on it. Thanks Lauri, hope you enjoy it and get lots of miles from it!
Didn't mention it still has the tire pump inside one of those plastic covers. I am in North Jersey (Morris County).
Actually its not white but sort of a cream color. Kinda of dusty from sitting. I have a Sunbeam Alpine that I'm working on and just don't have the time to fool with this.
I have a very nice 1977 Puch Maxi for sale. It has 1,124 miles on it. It was running fine until this summer. Then wouldn't start. It turns over, but does not appear to be getting any spark. Located in New Jersey. I have a valid NJ Title for it. Asking $300. Call 973-584-8476 evenings
First, YOU CANNOT RIDE A MOPED WITHOUT REGISTRATION AND INSURANCE IN NEW JERSEY. In fact, even though Mopeds are legal in the state of NJ, some towns have outlawed them. Check that your town allows them. Next, police in NJ have been checking that your Moped is indeed pedal powered, too many motor scooters (without pedals) are popping up with Moped plates. I believe there is a list of certified
Bob,I buy 2 cycle oil at Auto Zone by the quart. I use regular gas and mix the oil with the gas (in a separate can) about 24:1 (I also use the mixed fuel for my leaf blower and weed whacker). Be sure to mark the can so you know it has 2 cycle oil mixed with the gas for your moped. Be sure to carry a little bottle of 2 cycle oil with you so if you have to fill up, you will have oil to pour into
First of all, remove the carb from the moped completely. Put it on your work bench. Where the fuel line comes into the carb there is a bolt, remove it and you will find a tiny little mesh basket-clean it. Then thouroughly clean the carb in carb cleaner. Make sure the float valve is free to move. Make sure you have a gasket between the float chamber and the carb body-if you don't-get one.
I have been fighting with the same problem for quite a while. My best solution so far has been paper fuel filters... carry a spare to replace when it clogs up. I tried many different chemicals and none really did a good job.. still lots of red rust comes out with fuel. Janius
My son gets about 70-75 MPG at full throttle (25-30 MPH) on his totally stock 2006 Kinetic. However he is one big guy and weighs about 250 lbs.
I've got a very, very nice 1977 Puch maxi 1.5 HP moped and would like to use it to visit my daughter. She is less then 5 miles from me on moped safe roads. Except that there is a 2 mile long STEEP hill between us. I don't need more speed, I need more torque to pull this hill (and no, I don't want to search out a 2 speed Puch). Anyone have any suggestions?
My son bought a used Kinetic last year. He is over 6 feet tall and weighs something over 275 lbs and is built like a football player-he rides his to work everyday the weather allows and can get it up to 30 MPH. His gas mileage is only about 65 MPG, but that little bugger is hauling alot more weight with alot more wind resistance then most Mopeds and seems to do a pretty good job of it. When it e
This is really only academic as I live on the east coast. I have a Huffy cruiser bike that I motorized- 2 HP 2 stroke (49 cc). Goes great and is a lot of fun. Where would that fall in California? In my state it has to be titled, registered and insured.Janius
Check out my moped... it is made from a Huffy bicycle! You are right, it is an awesome feeling to be zipping along on a bike you built yourself. Picture is in my user profile in the membership list.Janius
Hey, anybody know where I can moped insurance on-line cheap? I am paying $125 per year and that seems very high to me.Janius
Since I don't know what kind of base you are looking for, this may be good or not good information. But I use Radio shack for many of my bulbs, they have drawers full of various voltage and wattage.Janius
From my experience, if only runs choke then either there is a clogged jet in the carb or a burnt valve. Take the carb apart and clean it in gasoline and then try it. If it is a 4 cycle, then check the valves.Janius
One good part of this is that my wife considers me a genius for buying a Prius in March of 2003-I got over $4,000 off the list price and a good trade for my old Toyota pickup. It consistently gets 48-50 MPG.As soon as it gets warmer I will also start using my moped much, much more!I look at the rising price of gas positively-it just means that more and more people in the world are getting rich en
OK, here goes.....CompUSA, BestBuy and those big discount computer stores often sell Notebooks for less then cost-watch their sales fliers and those "specials" etc are indeed below cost. You will not get a new notebook cheaper. The reason they do this is that they try to sell you an extended warranty for a LOT of money-that is actually where they make their profit. You usually don
Try Harbor Freight and watch for sales. Got a 11 piece combination wrench set for $9.95 and a socket set for $2.99Janius
Will,I am terribly sorry to hear about your friend Tom. All of the stresses of the modern world do not help! People (parents) often get carried away with the need for "good grades", getting into the right schools, etc. A big mistake, they should instead teach their children how to be happy and how to enjoy themselves (of course maybe they cannot teach that because they do not know it
Hey Brock, why don't you just write one up for Ilya- sell him his Tomos Moped!Janius
If you check out my listing, you will see a picture of my "moped" it is a converted Huffy Cranbrook bicycle (from Walmart!). I bought a kit on e-bay from a fellow in Montana and it installed with no problems. The bike is perfectly rideable as a bicycle (but is a one speed) and has the luxury of 49cc when you meet a hill. Unless you meet a really serious hill, the 49cc can carry you up
Had a similar experience, I went to the DMV in Morris County (NJ) and all they seemed to be interested in was NOT registering and titling my moped, went out to Warren County and they went out of their way to help me-really very nice people.Regarding the police crack down here in New Jersey, it does not surprise me as there are "pocket bikes" all over the place and those electric scooters
Has anyone else built their own motorbike? I bought a gas engine kit on e-bay and a Huffy Cranbrook bicycle at Walmart and assembled them. The result was a really retro looking moped. It goes great and I am having a ball running around with it. Still working some bugs out of it, but overall it worked out to be a really cheap ride (under $200).Janius
