I even used a Motobecan variator clutch on one motorbike. I had to modify all three circuits for use on a slower turning four stroke. Lots of good stuff on a moped.
msrfan, your post is fantastic and shows just what can be done with little ingenuity, that is using parts from & for Mopeds on our motor assisted bicycles thereby making them in some ways perform better both functionally and giving them better performance.
msrfan, if you could share pictures of parts & components you've used on your motor assisted bicycles that would visibly show others just how those parts are used and what works.
If you could post links of where these parts can be sourced / found that would be another plus for other builders wanting to use such parts and components.
Thanks for your post!
Peace Crazy Horse.
