Re: New Project
Let's see if this works. Here's a link to my photobucket album that has the pictures:
The frame is a 60's Columbia (unknown model), the fenders I cut down I think came off a Western Flyer bike from the 40's, the engine came off (I was told) a sidewalk sweeper, and is in almost perfect shape, excellent compression and spark, started on the first pull. I got it because it had a gear reduction unit and I knew I needed those holes to mount the torque converter, but what I didn't realize is that it had a spline shaft instead of the normal one with a keyway... I think I need to find either another motor and swap the crankcase cover, or a different crank... And the Motobecane moped is what the wheel hubs, fork, handlebars, controls, and maybe some electrics are coming off of. Not off of that exact one, since I actually ride that around, but basically the same model and same pieces. Any suggestions for the gas tank? I haven't found one I really liked yet.
