Default Re: Moped Parts Being Used? What Works What DOESN'T?

Of course, these "pins" are a invention made in ****. a lot of old bicycles in europe use them, it makes me sick sometimes. to remove them, you get at best a flamethrower to heat up the crank and then hit the "pins" with a big hammer. It works mostly....
by the way, when you use a moped-engine think about bigger brakes to built in. i found out, the normal rear-bicycle-hubs are to small for the enginepower, so i used a rear moped-hub with great success.
on this picture you see left a Fichtel & Sachs bicycle-hub and right a moped-hub. they are made in the same time (around 1955). the moped-hub is a little greater and wider then the other, but is fits into the most frames. It should also work in your frames....and the best : the sprockets are screwed on, and not bolt on with screwes and nuts into the spokes....

improved me when I write incomprehensible^^
