Varies so much to your location. In Ca bay area could be anywhere from $700 to $1000 if it's a turn key runner. I like the Euro tail light and different clutch cover. In the Midwest probably 3-5, maybe more. The price keeps creeping up. TV shows, like pickers, have really changed the market. Even ebay is getting stupid prices.
I forgot to mention, that after you get it dialed in, you can super glue or solder the pieces together.
Completely Awesome!!! I'm so glad you spent the money to get those parts re-plated. Makes a Huge difference. A showpiece for many years to come.
Vice & a long pipe. Find one!
Sham......this was a good thread till you came along. Nothing to offer on all your 4 posts. GO AWAY !!!
Many years ago I fabricated some 'tuneable' weights using K & N brass and aluminum tubing, available at quite a few locations, including Ace hardware. Here's some pix. You'll figure it out. You need an accurate scale.
Ike, I forgot to mention that when checking the deck height of the piston, to the exhaust port, the stock gasket thickness was just right with the cylinder installed. A paper hole punch works great for modding or making gaskets for Mopeds and trimming the straight parts with a scissor. I also use a pair of curved manicuring scissors to get into small areas.
Yes, but when you buy parts from Treats, you, or I guess I should say 'I' usually buy a bunch of parts that total $150 & get free shipping. I can only think of twice, that I ordered less than $150 worth of parts, at one time, in the last 10 years.
I think it's exciting even though you don't. Your Puch is exactly the same as my brothers, color included, for the exception his has the ZA. Been workin on him for 15 years to get one & found him one that ran with just a carb cleaning. All the lights worked. We disassembled it to do a complete cleaning and service/lube headset bearings & wheels, cables, etc. Took the top end of
Besides having a build forum, I think having stickys are a very good idea.
I've been using an ultrasonic unit, for several years, and this year started using Ethylene Glycol in it, for carbs. I will agree that it works well. No matter what method you use, you must double check all the orifices to make sure they're clear.
Sorry to say, because you're a noob to 2T mopeds, you need to do a BUNCH of reading before you attempt to kit a Hobbit , or any other Moped. Never assume that any part is ready to bolt on. In fact most parts need an 'adjustment' before using. Get busy!
Not 100% sure, but this looks like a 4T part, and not necessarily for 2T.
I'm pretty sure JBot has a Hobbit cylinder with no skirt & said it was fast.
Our lows (at night) have been in the high 30s & low 40s, and high 50s & low 60s during the day. I feel for you guys.
OMG That was 306 revs per second !
Yup! Gotta have a pipe! But porting really works!
^Lar said it. Start with a clean chain. I do mine in a parts washer pretty often. Grime wears out your chain. Any kind of lube works. I like chain wax, too. Just start with clean!
Every time I see one of your posts, I expect it to be exceptional, and you never let me down. You're truly one of the main movers & shakers of MA !
And then the thread ended? Are you guys still out there ripping this set up?
This thread is Classic !I've been making gaskets since I was 8. 1955. My grandfather taught me how. Lots of things work. My favorite is manila folders, but you have to think about what you're using it for, so it could be lotsa stuff.
Yeah, I'm hip to 'rolled' threads. They screw in easier, too. Seems like hardware, everywhere, has gone down in quality in the last 5 years. I think it's mainly because 'we' don't make quality steel any more. Even APR racing bolts/fasteners have gone down in quality, but they still get outrageous prices.
Here's a great linkhttps://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/read.php?7,3820576,3820844#msg-3820844
DPC I found it on page 67 or 2003 out of 6585 posts. An amazing amount of info. I also bumped the old thread because there's so many new members, that could utilize the info, since the last post in 2013. Here's the link:https://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/read.php?7,3820576,3820844#msg-3820844
Took a while to find this old thread, however it has great info for those who came to MA after the last post. There should be a sticky just for Jbot !
For a 'hands on' person, a mechanically irresistible journey.
I keep coming back to this thread to find out more. Has anyone been doing anything with it? How about some updates.
Did things work out better? Seems like 6mm ones are a bit skinny.
I was going to add a few pics of growing, but then I decided it may not be that great of an idea. Sorry.
