Wow impressive before and after, cool little build. Those tires plus expansion chamber make it look like a blast.

Particularly ingenious use of duct tape on a tyre!

Must add that technique to my repertoire.

I just want to know how the master of trade wasn't able to get this dude to budge.  Surely, you had a duct tape wallet or some shit to offer.

So she runs!....slowly...im thinkng air leak, and it may be jetted a bit big....oh and i snapped and exhaust stud trying to chase down that damn airleak!....so it will have to come apart, get drilled out and re tapped and then i will give it another go.

So you guys ....You gotta know....this .....moped.... fuckin .....rips!
Holy Shit 45 mph is no joke on basically a bicycle....yesterday i was jetted way high....i put an 88 main in the carb anticipating getting a 2 speed version of this moped...didnt happen....yet....anyways i tried a 74 main jet....major difference still kinda slow on the bottom end but kept picking up speed til 30 then it blasts to 40..... Tried a 70 main....Different Animal all together.....tons of low end then it jumps on the pipe in the mid range and just hauls fuckin ass....did 50 mph down a hill....ill have to get more video of it and post that shit...
The drilling of the broken stud didnt go so well....broke a drill bit off in the hole on the grade 8.8 bolt i used in there....i was gonna cry... And throw things and have a tantrum....but i ate some pizza instead and went back and made a temp fix so i could run it....Sooo glad I did
