Thats some quality motorskootorlidge right there matey!
Do they have minimoto races anywhere near you?? Endurance skoot races? pocket bike class?? COuld be some good advertisement ... maybe.... to have this thing .. zipping.. around the track!!
I hate fat chicks, but they aren't going away either so might as well have fun right?
Nemo....thats fuckin cool. Once I get this rat running, I may have to go see how hard I can push it on the old ass tires. The date codes read older than the tires on the Sabre were. I'll pump them up, and go run up and down NN until I slide it lol
Got the scoot halfway stripped, I need to grab my tape and label all the connectors next so I can finish taking it apart. I need to take it to the car wash and blast the shit out of it. 'tis a little difficult to work when you're pushing through tons of grime. Carb is apart and on my desk, I need to grab a can of carb cleaner when I'm out and a new plug. With any luck, it'll fire up after this. Also need to grab a bottle of 2stroke oil and a little more gas. Gonna flush the tanks out as well. I'm thinking it just might fire up today
So I've got the gauge pack here in hand....debating if I want to find a replacement, or have a custom replacement face made....
I got both tanks pulled off, and I'm trying to decide if I want to do custom tanks, or reuse the originals. If I keep both originals, then I can use the original senders. If I go with different tanks (and I have a couple in mind), then I have to make sure they are deep enough to retain the senders. I'm not so worried about the gas level sender, but I like the idiot for low oil. I can see through the stock oil tank for a visual reminder, but the replacement I have in mind is solid metal. If I go with replacement tanks I'd have to relocate the battery, but I'm ok with that. I might end up moving it for shits and giggles anyway. I said I want to retain the front and floor bodywory, but they're 2piece.....I think I just changed my mind, at least partly. I think I need to pick up some more diamond plate to make a new floor. I do still want to keep the front plastic.
Handlebars are some goofy looking shit..... Think bicycle but with a MUCH taller riser... stock actually might not look too bad once everything is cleaned up and the wires are bundled through some techflex... Just repaint the bars.
Backhalf of the scoot will look kinda nice once cleaned up and now that the rest of the junk plastic is out of the way.
Anyway, should know in a couple hours if she'll run
Just ran down the street with it. Must have looked hilarious when I pulled into the gas station. No front plastics, no floorboards, just the tanks and seat, open bars, no lights. Runs like shit. I can't go WOT on it, it bogs out. Choke on is even worse. At the moment I don't have the airbox on it, I'm thinking that that could be part of the problem, but more than likely I should order a new float needle and petcock kit.
I see my tractor and minibike Oh wait...thats my yard :doh:
Story of this moped is it was on a platform carrier that goes into the regular 2" hitch on the back of an RV. Old folks didn't tie it in right and it tipped down while still being tied at the bottom It was dragged for MANY MANY miles.
