Hi everyone, I've been on this forum for years asking stupid questions and getting honest answers. Everyone here is MUCH more polite than on the moped forum. In the past I ran a bumble bee bolt on engine that I liked but chewed the living snot out of my tires. I rebuilt an old Sears friction drive which didn't have enough power to move my fat keister around. I got a great deal on a 77 puch maxi moped that I was able to take apart and put back together and get running pretty well. I could stop there and be content but I don't roll like that. I wanted to dance with the girl who was the reason why I showed up in the first place. I wanted to build me a china girl bike.
I have never been one to do things the easy way so I got a weird old bike a guy found in a barn in rural MO
It was rusty and crusty but it was weird and I am into weird
the next step was to strip her down and paint here green
I rattle canned her (don't judge)
I was afraid I would have a clearance issue but it seems ok. though there is pedal clearance problems I need to address
and here is the mock up. I have a long way to go until it is road worthy. Either I need a clam shell or a different rear wheel. I need to replace the crappy Chinese bolts and solve that pedal issue. Either a conversion to a 3 piece or a wider 1 peice. I haven't decided yet. Wish me luck because I am gonna need it (more updates when they come)
