Wink $10 Oil breather cap carb intake air cleaner hack.

Last wens-day i took my bike out for a bought of employment application canvassing when to my
great disgust i realized i had lost my stock air filter of the carburetor. I guess this is one of the
reasons everyone greately stresses to regularly check your bikes nuts and bolts to be sure nothing
will rattle off, it could have been worse like a possible engine mount going and jamming up your power train and sending oneself flying over the handlebars.

Anyway after a quick trip to my local Oreilys Auto-parts store i found a rather interesting and mildly compatible MR Gasket Co brand Oil Breather cap that only required about 15 minutes of dremmeling and a few drill bits, one Computer shell screw, and $9.74 +tax. When everything was said and done i had a rather amazing professionally looking replacement air filter.

I was able to take a few pictures of the assembly minus the bicycle install as my girlfriend has yet to find the appropriate cable for her external digicam and i am forced to use her i-Mac's built in camera

Well i got some more pictures of the moped transfered off of my girlfriends digital camera. as you can see the baby is nowhere close to stock, with a good ole american recast cyclinder, head, #RL95YC Champion spark plug, new silicon high temperature spark plug boot and wire going to stock coil( for the time being until i start making my own coils), bastardized lawn mower fuel tank, fuel grade line, fuel filter and fuel shutoff valve. Recently i have updated to rather nice reproduction schwinn sting ray reproduction handle bars i got from a local bicycle store called Re-Cycle Home Page located in down town Omaha,NE.

Below are some newer better images of the build.
