Rizbiz, nice!

My only question is, how much fertilizer and how often did  you have to water and
weed it to get it to look like that? ;D

Here is Mopey the moped, got it off craigslist this winter for free, new carbs, lights, now it runs great and is lots of fun, it is getting NO treatment of any kind, this bike will be used to tour the gritty underside of the city and needs to keep a low profile. On the DL yo!

I'm 6'1", and for some reason love small bikes. Just the way it is. So I'm sure I look funny riding them. But they are so much fun. I still have the zebra YSR. Wish I had kept them all.

Picked up this 1964 Two Stroke Suzuki K11 (79cc) last week for my wife.

Cost: $175 + a $20 6v battery!

No rust, and took about five  minutes to get started. Someone had the idle and pilot screws in all the way. Rubbers aren't even cracked!

The bike  was from the beginning a piaggio superbravo that i got from a friend. I built most of it when i was 14 (17 now).
I chopped and reinforced the frame, changed the fork, built a new seat and offcourse built the "Nitrous tank" wich actually is my gas tank. I done so much on it so i don't remember everything!
The engine got a polini 70cc cylinder, dellorto 13/13 carburator, modified crank, engine case matched to the cylinder ports and intake modified and a polini sp exhaust pipe. it is still not finished, but it will never be!

Oh, a small bike thread! I'm in!



First out, my very ratty Honda MT50 1988, my first bike ever. Have had her for 7 years now and I rebuild her about once a year when I get bored of her appearance. This is her latest incarnation, it's shitty and ratty, but I still love her.

(http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa417/sixsicktricks/DSC02216.jpg)


And then there's this little bastard, MCB 1254 1974 if I remember the year right. Got her as a frame with about half an engine, built her up with whatever stuff I could find at home, also looks kinda crappy, but that's the way I like it!


(http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa417/sixsicktricks/DSC02175.jpg)


All built by a 21 yo amateur with basically no tools whatsoever but WAY too much spare time ;D

The stuff on the swingarm is just there to hide the rust and crap, I ran out of spraypaint  ::)
But I'm actually quite sure it adds atleast 3-4 rwhp!

Just get to it then, mask it all!

Well, actually that frame and swingarm are crooked, bent and molested in all directions (the poor girl's been owned by a maniac for 7 years) so I'm currently in the market for a new frame and swingarm. I'll never get to work on my cb450 if I keep this up ::)

nice!  That's awesome that you did an engine swap.  Those stock 50cc honda engines blow.  Genuine makes good scoots.

Any of you 49cc engine guys ever get questioned on displacement after an engine swap?


I always wondered if a cop would notice you cruising by at 50mph and make the connection of "that looks like a 49cc scooter..."

my scoot has always been 110cc but in the city people try to pass me.  I think they are in disbelieve sometimes how my 2-stroke scoot launches off the line and screams to 45-50mph.

Most cops don't know enough
About the bike to really mess with you
And most that do I have found are cool enough not to mess around

And honestly it's low in the list of things to ticket someone on

Police are never going to check it unless you're doing something really bad while riding it!

I had a Ruckus before the Metro with a 150cc swap and got pulled over all the time. Just told them it was a 49cc and it could only do 30, even though I could do mid 50s. Most cops were cool and let me go. Never got a ticket but it sucks thinking your going to get pulled over every time you see a cop.

G7s is VERY low on my list of bikes to work on.
i traded my cafe 125 for it to a friend that needed a small running/reliable bike.
i said that i would trade it back to him.  he apparently is getting a C110.  i actually know the C110 very well and really want it so i can ride in the giro events.

so its complicated but i dont know.....make me an offer.
you havent filled out you bio so i have no idea if you are near.
the G7s does have a title and runs, but has needs....

Some fun little bikes on here! They all like tons of fun :D
 
My dad just gave me this but I have no idea what to do with it yet other than clean it, restore it, and get it running...

How did I miss this thread, awesome stuff in here!!

 I have a ped, I'll take a picture tomorrow. Bone stock 71' Vespa Ciao. Can't say that I really plan on doing anything to it, most of my money goes towards my bigger bikes! :P I briefly had a Elite, bought it from a friend who did some work to it. 65cc (i think) kit, proma pipe, different clutch weights etc etc. Well like I said, I had it briefly... Didn't know a lot about the bike at the time, I was young and stupid.... didn't understand the whole 2-stoke 4-stroke thing... cylinder melted.

Cellphone picture.

There it is. It's pretty small... I mean you can use the regular sized mountain bike behind it as a size comparison. Apparently Ciaos are pretty small, compared to other mopeds of the time. It's been in the family since it was brand new, my dad got it when he was 10 or so. He lived / spent extensive periods of time in Europe so he saw them all over the place while he was there. When his family moved back to the states both him and his brother had to have one. At one point I had them both in the barn, the other (yellow) one has since been given back to my uncle... which is unfortunate because in all honesty, the guy doesn't know a wrench from a hammer so it'll prolly stay sitting in his garage for years to come... That is unless i can convince his son, my cousin, to bust that thing out and throw a kit on it!

Its a cut up CL exhaust. Im going to make a new one. I want to make it out of stainless but i dont want to buy a 20 foot stick just to make one exhaust. But if i was making 2 or 3 then that might be worth it. Would you be intrested in a straight pipe from stainless or are you try to stay low budget? If not I am going to make one out of steel and you can always get in on that.

Heres my old GT 185 twin from about 1976.called "cut the mustard"
 tuned and tweaked a tiny bit and geared to increase the bottom end heaps..
pop the clutch out on the power band and she  would go around corners with the back wheel spinning up and the nose pointed halfway to the sky. oh the joy :P.
a real rat bike at as in rubbish and trash.. if i couldnt make or modify it i forgot about it.. expect new pistons and rings and a rebore to suit.

Here is from what I have found out to be a 78 Cosmo Comet. I restored it as good as a 13year old kid could have. I rode this thing around for many years before I got my first car. Its slow as hell, but reliable. Its been in the shed untouched for almost 10 years now, and needs a restoration. I think I am going to tackle a cafe build for it in the near future when I am done my xs650.

nice man! i really dig the motor color... but think you should do your muffler in black unless you tie some more white down in the lower side of the bike... they are fun scoots i had mine cafed for a while and was amazed by how low i could rip turns... how was the jetting for the pod filter?
Title: Re: lets see your small cafe's and mopeds
Post by: danny_750 on Oct 18, 2011, 17:00:55
The engine is rattle canned in a gun metal color. I havent rejetted the pod filter, but I'm sure it needs it because its leaking a little gas and ruining the paint...
Title: Re: lets see your small cafe's and mopeds
Post by: JRK5892 on Oct 18, 2011, 17:06:28
leaking gas would not be from the carbs bud... PM me so we do not clog up the thread ill help you figure it out... depends where th gas is coming from but i would bet your float is not set correctly

if you do the pipe do the whole thing in flat white high temp powder... would look way better and have the old school hot rod look, to me the white tank, silver on back, white muffler just looks like parts where kind of an afterthought... no offence ment man just being honest.. the bike has a great stance and style just needs the color sceme tied down a bit, you have gun metal, black, silver, chrome, raw metal, white, black wrap, and red filter that is 8 total colors man... that is alot going on and it is hard for the eye to adjust to it... on all my builds i try to keep it at 2 main colors and one accent, makes for a very smooth transition of the eye when you look over it... just throwing out tips bud

1973 CL175, 1285 original miles, with CB Tank and GFTP Tail and minor cafe conversion.  Might do clip-ons and rearsets, but kind of like it as-is.

I'm not sure yet. The screen doesn't look right to me how it is at the moment. So I'm going to get the bike finished without it, and then see if I can adapt/ get a new screen to make it look alright. If it looks good then I'll probably put it back on and if not, no real loss because I've already built the bike I wanted.

Here is a 1966 Solex I restored a few years ago. It was made from parts from so many donors I nicknamed it "Frankenstein" So I replaced the neutral shift knob with one I made in Frank's likeness. I think it's the slowest, most dangerous thing I have ridden with a motor and 2 wheels. The throttle is designed to be on full and the front brake lever reduces the throttle and then applies the brake. Dont fall off though - she will run away at full throttle  ;D

I have thought about getting a Tomos Streetmate and turning into something brat-ish for the girlfriend to ride. She used to like riding my Yamaha Jog around. My friend and I had matching purple 1996 Yamaha Jogs. They were pretty rad, 45mph on flat roads. He sold mine to me for $600 but wrecked his which was his only means of transportation. So I sold mine back to him for $600. Then he got a Zuma and decided to sell the Jog because it was single seat. He got $700 for it and then it was back up on CL a few weeks later for $800. I would have bought it back, he gave me the opportunity, but I had other shit going on.

I've also thought about a board tracker using a bike frame and Minarelli engine with Yamaha Jog CVT, or perhaps try to put the same setup in another small bike or moped frame. In CO if it's under 50ccs and doesn't have a manual clutch you don't need an MC license.

So I found this tank on Ebay and I'm definitely wanting to get it.

My bike is all black and I think this tank with the patina would look brilliant. The only thing I would do is get rid of the little rust on the inside and leave it as is.

Thoughts?

Will go find it and confirm.  I know I gave a few of my oddball tanks away a while back but I think that one is still in my rafters.  I'm in Canada, so you might be better off buying a cheap one on eBay and having it shipped within the US.  Shipping the tank from here is likely to run $40 easy.  But will go find it.

The one on Ebay is going to be $40+ with $18 shipping. So I'll probably still be interested. Thanks for the help!

Here's the other way that I'll do the tank I have now.

Picked this up last August/September.  I jumped online today to do some digging hoping to find some ideas and solutions for some mechanical issues I'm currently having.  I haven't really looked online for anything G3SS related in awhile... I had seen Mitey F's build right after I got the bike, but it looks like there are a lot more of these things floating around now and some great builds and performance mods being done.  Anyway, love this little bike!

It is an adrenalin hit that is for sure. Bumps can be murder if you hit to big of one since there is no rear suspension.  The 8inch tyres don't help either.
It is still a great feeling to get off a bike with the shakes. Reminds me of riding when I was a kid.
The bike is not quite finished how I would like but mechanically it is. I had the idea of powder coating it cherry red but that is a bit away.

He had an MB50 & as he made his get away at 30mph I thought "he's f*cked, but i'm home free" at 45 on my 1976 Suzi AP50. it must have been about 2 quid a tankful.  jeez we were badass.

70 top and maybe 50-60 cruising is perfect for commuting around the 45mph city side streets.    Get to work and get about 80 mpg.   Nothing wrong with that!  I hope to have my 125 done by summer time and commute to work.

Yeah, the Mobylette counts. I'd actually have fun redoing one of those, very classic look.

I'll have to drag the bikelette (CL100 with CB pipe) out of the barn and put it back together. Need the fuel economy and the 100 needs a lot less work than the 250. My 652cc single only gets 60s or 70s mpg, the 250 is rated for 80 something and the 100 used to get over 95 mpg.

Man this thread is giving me a chubby. I love the U-frames with top tanks and long seats. I never would have thought to do them that way. Opens up a ton of cool possibilities.

My next project will definitely be an MB5 if I can find one.

I originally built this bike when I was 14 years old. It was a 1974 cb125s. First picture is when it has a 100cc motor, ported, delortto carb, made a manifold on a lathe, rear sets, clip ons, aluminum seat that hides a stock honda tailight underneath, and a strait through megaphone I made. It was a blast but eventually touched a valve. I through in another 125cc motor and rode it to a Moto Guzzi in Oquawka Illinois from Huntley Nebraska, when I was 16.

Fast forward 10 plus years and 3 motors later, it is now nesting a stock xl185 (180cc) motor and 5 speed. It easily pulls me at 75mph but goes flat on the top (due to the mellow cam I believe) after that.  Its still a work in progress but I will never sell it as it has been through so much. Tons of fun and will actually wheelie on the throttle in 1st.

Fair enough. I'm probably overly-sensitive to that crap with a baby in the house... that and every Hardly Davidson douchebag within a 5 mile radius likes to drive down my street (the only two-way street for blocks) with their throttle wide open and their cocks flapping in the breeze.

I hear you. I've got 2 small kids myself and live on a 25mph residential road. A few years back we had a pack of sport bike "riders" that like to hit triple digits and catch air over the rise just past my house. I threatened a few with a katana and it's been quiet ever since.

I hear you guys but I gotta say I have a love hate relationship with loud exhaust. Both the mad ass and my 1980 Harley Sportster are loud and I love opening them up but I try to keep the full throttle rips to more desolated areas. My Ural on the other hand has a nice quiet exhaust it's no wonder that it's the favored bike for both my 5 year old and all my neighbors. But I guess I'm just getting old and that's enough of that lets see some more cool small cc motorcycles.

Actually it's kinda cool. Guy I work with brought over his '72 Kawasaki G3SS for me to "restore" for him. It was his bike as a kid that he pulled out of his Grand-Dads barn after the old Gent passed away. After I checked over, seized engine, both wheels locked up and severly rusted stem to stern... I told him it would cost more to get it running than it would be worth. So he goes and picks up ANOTHER and drops it off!
 Now I am seeing double!  :o
Second one is in much better shape mechanically with half the miles. I ought to be able to get him a decent little ride of the two.

You've seen that a right, base is a Yamaha FS1, that I'm going to convert into a café style black-bomber! Kind of a "Baby Black Bomber".

I'm not a "KEEP IT STOCK!!!" preacher but I do wonder why bother changing a seemingly very tidy bike.  I like the Yamaha speed blocks and the look of the current bike.

Well quite simple really. I've been thinking about it for a while! The gas tank and sidecovers look neat on picture, but in real life they look way more worn. Scratches, paint becoming dull, speed blocks damaged, on the other side a rust spot,..
I've been working to make all the rest tidy, now everything looks good but these. (Also I had a little accident a while ago and now my handlebar is a bit warped. With the money to repair that I found some nice looking cheap clip-ons and headlight brackets.
Sounds like a good excuse to start a cafe racer styled conversion, does it not? :P

Also FS1's are quite popular here in Belgium. Also even more in England and the Netherlands. Yet I haven't seen many unique projects (except for a few, but these can easily be counted on one hand). Everyone's just restoring them in original state, wich is very nice, but not my thing. I want something special and truly unique that shows people what kind of awesome things you can do with a FS1!

An amalgamation of parts from Yamahas, Kawasakis, Hondas, a 1940s stovetop, a Norton bolt, Hurst shifter, and who knows what else.. '49cc' block (bored to ~70cc), 3 speed semi-auto suicide shift tranny. So. Much. Fun.

Mine and my friend's bike. His has the same motor, but with a 4 speed. Started as a simple restoration, but hurricane Sandy ended up necessitating more...

I've become the proud owner of a 2005 Tomos Revival moped, the one without pedals!

Not sure it fits on this forum as there's not a snowflakes chance in hell of it doin' the ton! Speedo tops out at 60kmph and I'm told it's comfortable between 25-30kmph! Wave as you jog past me.

If you've never heard of it don't be surprised. They're made in Slovenia.
 
It needs a bit of TLC to get it up to rego. Parts are not available in Aus. so it's going to be a bit of a challenge. I was however able to pick up a part for the rear brake from the local pushbike shop!

It boasts 49cc of pure Blue Haze with a two speed automatic transmission.

Plan is to have it registered sometime before Christmas.
