Damn... who would have thought that 15x29x7 bearings would be so hard to find.

I'm settling for 15x28x7 and MrE is gonna machine me some spacers.

No more pics yet, but I did get some more work done.

All the spokes are off the wheels and I only broke one. I was thinking about cleaning them up and reusing them, but the spoke sets for the this bike are $25, so I'll probably just go with the new stuff.

Old bearings and races have been removed from the hubs, but the freewheel is stuck. Going to take it to a local shop and see if they can make a dent in it.

I priced out a new CDI/stator kit and most of the rest of the parts I'll need.

After chatting with the crew on Facebook, I'll probably be converting from AC to DC and keeping a battery pack on the bike somewhere. Headlight will be removed and replaced with bar-mounted flash lights that run from USB. I'm trying to have things serve multiple purposes.

Got everything taken apart and piled up so I can get the correct color on the correct parts. Engine cases split. Sad to see a rusty crank. :(

Loose hardware is enjoying some time in the tumbler to get cleaned up.

New crank is a bit over $100.

I might start working on mopeds all the time now. I'm only $300 into this build so far.
