Default MoPOD Mk. III, 66CC

This is my newest (4th) build, and the third in the MoPOD Riding Apparatus series (Motor and Pedal Operated Drive). This also marks the first time I've tried my hand at brazing. That experiment went well; the new seat position is the result (the new piece of tubing came from the leg of a broken futon). Seat is from an old Western Flyer, reupholstered with memory-foam padding added. Gas tank is from an old Targa moped. Bike was a Realm Cycles "Plateau 1.0" from a clearance sale at Dick's, with the front fork and handlebars swapped out for a cooler set from an old mountain bike I had lying around. The vinyl faux-leather and stitching on the front fork pads is my work, with the color matching the seat. Paint job is slightly different now, and I did a little more custom work, so when the weather turns nice again I'll photograph the new stuff.
Also, my thanks to everybody who helped solve the ignition problem plaguing this machine! That's fixed, though there seems to be an air leak somewhere now.
