Got a new custom front license plate! Whatcha think? Here's the link to the plate. Awesome quality!https://www.etsy.com/listing/291788095/custom-name-plaque-8-character-vintage?ref=yr_purchases
I don't think a pull start will fit with my CDI. And yes, I'll clean up the wires
Added rear pegs and a round metal plate under the tank to put the number "79" on! This thing screams! Need to figure out a way to start it without a cordless drill?
Somehow I got everything to work. Is there any need to run the Rectifier to control surge? Sorry for the dumb questions, still learning. I'm currently running a Trail Tech voltage regulator from Treats for the headlight.
Okay, having a hard time with the wiring. This is the CDI I have;https://www.treatland.tv/HPI-CDI-mini-rotor-ignition-system-for-honda-hobbi-p/hobbit-mini-rotor-210k094.htmCan't find a diagram for the different colored wires from the CDI to adapt to the Hobbit. (I checked this website and could not find it for the HPI CDI.) Need to know what each wire from the CDI is, so I can adapt them to t
Yay! Wiring up the hobbits lights, kill switch, horn and on/off switch with an aftermarket CDI is real fun!
Mmmmm......how the Hobbit should have been made.
Thanks, I did not order the head from treats, but I did just order the 2mm spacer from them. The compression is really high. I had this thing up to 55mph before I backed off! Stupid fast and quick!
Kept hearing a tick while the engine was running. It was the sparkplug vs. the piston! Added an extra head gasket. Problem solved. I'm discovering the compression is too high for "kick starting" the engine. It requires an impact drill and it fires up immediately. Any suggestions for an alternative would be greatly appreciated.
Sparkplug suggestions and gap for this build?Thanks
Got it to fire up for the first time! Sounds mean! Like and old Yamaha two stroke race bike I had. It's dumping fuel from the carb. Still in the tuning stages. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
Been awhile since I've posted. Boys off to the suck! USMC! Got everything connected.
I'm going to drill two holes on each side, use bolts to hold it on. That way it's removable.
Notice the cut near our "essentials!" It bends down at a 45 degree!
Just a diversion from the engine. My youngest made me a gas tank / ignition switch cover in metal shop. I thought he did a really good job!
Now that the engine is basically back together, what should I focus on next? What's the next piece of the puzzle?
Without the cylinder it would easily turn by hand. It's now that everything is buttoned up you can't turn it by hand. It's still really smooth, just snug and a lot of compression.
Baron Von HamiltonI will check that. Thanks for the advice.
The seals are on the correct sides. I tapped the crank back and forth. It loosened up a little bit, but you can't turn it by hand (the seals are on).

Not sure if the head is on upside down?
Okay, a little progress today. I got the Athena 73cc cylinder kit and Moped Factory 47mm head installed.
Okay....been awhile with kids graduating and joining the USMC and other of life's stuff, but I'm back to working on my Custom Hobbit! Heated the case halves, froze the new bearings and crank, everything pretty much slipped together. Used a Treatland case bolt kit (Allen heads).My only concern is it seems a little tight? Everything moves freely, just seems snug.
