Btw a Vespa engine can fit in the large flat rate box, I’ve done it a couple times before
I see more painting and cleaning supplies there than wrenches.
I was informed you were a flipper and did not want to see this same bike re listed for 950 dollars at the end of the week. I updated the thread with sold at 2pm
My grande is a much better daily, and given my weight and size, I look completely ridiculous on any moped other than a grande
Am I under valueing it? Thought 300 might have been a bit steep for a non running moped. At any rate, my loss, your gain, 300 bucks
Yeah given COVID rn I don’t think I will be going . I for sure can drop it off if someone wants to buy it while they are in Toledo though, not much of a drive for me
The project is always in the details, and I hate the details lol
I have a stock Ciao for sale, pretty darn original will all of the important stuff there, side covers are off. Engine is stock, top end taken apart to evaluate compression, bottom ring is stuck. Engine has spark. I was going to fix it, but have no actual use for a ciao with my grande, and want it out of my garage. Tires don’t hold air. I have a bunch of extra parts including a good stock top end a
Looking for a 10 pin crank, aftermarket or stock
What can you do to Vespa cylinders? I have a bunch of stock cylinders
If Parker doesn’t buy it, I will.
Grande is the best, 6’6 240lbs no issues for hundreds of miles at this point
I started using air filters because I’m on dusty roads up north a lot, and I noticed it really helps keep the sound down.
I have a 2nd gen 6 port to put in this once the 12a blows
I like my rx7, but I also like 2 strokes. Idk if a rotary moped would be any fun to drive, with even less torque
Poor cast aluminum will shatter. It it was improperly seated and torqued to spec, I’m betting it would break/bend the alignment piece on the ignition side.
I have an engine, or atleast the parts to make an engine
Nice, you may want to change the fin design a little bit if you are casting it, the ends may come out with a lot of pockets. Also on the transfer ports, between the fins and the port add a little bit more metal like the rest of the cylinder. With casting a thin spot like that may cause issues
If you want to, take off the front variator and see how much material is on one of sides. This is a speed limiter. Also, I’m not sure for grandes, but check the intake. If it’s square it’s slow. But I think all Grandes had a larger intake
If your looking for trade for some Vespas, let me know.
Is the starter clutch rubbing? Or the rear wheel? Or the flywheel? That’s what it sounds like
If you go to a parts store, you could probably borrow their ob2 scanner and find what code it is throwing.
Another solution I was thinking about that would retain the stock cable end is 2 levers, one for the input and one for the output mounted to transmit the force
Has an M01, can deliver anywhere within a 2 hour drive from Ann arbor
Siezed bottom end, I got this from Detroit moped works as a project. Top end is ok, has the carb and all parts. Clutch stuff is disassembled, bottom end looks ok from the top, but I think the bearings are just locked up. $200
Compression is another possible issue, see it the decomp lever is stuck and do the thumb test. Replace the spark plug as well, some will spark fine out of the engine but under pressure and heat won’t
I believe most puch reed intakes will fit, you may be able to fit a carb in front of the engine on some of the subframe models
