Wow, cool maniac57 I just noticed yours. Did it come in black or is that an angle of the photo that makes it look black / Have you a larger photo?

My wife bought mine for my birthday in July of 2011 from Advanced Auto I almost pooped myself when I found out what she paid for 2 of them.

So WHEN i GOT MY NEW MOTOR I just swap out the cover.... as well as my trusty ole 48cc cover on the other side ..

I might've mentioned this before, but here it is again.

For years, I had struggled and wiggled past the access "arm" at the parking ramp's access. I even ran into the pillar with my motorcycle helmet. A couple years ago, I bought an access card which raises the arm and allows me to drive up the ramp. So I used to wrestle my card out, trigger the access sensor, then wrestle it back into my pocket.

Now I leave the card in my wallet, and my wallet in my left pants pocket. The sensor post is on a curb. Now I drive up to the sensor, place my foot on the curb, then the card in the wallet in my pocket triggers the sensor.

Passive access is great. That way, I'll never misplace my card, unless I misplace my wallet. No wrestling, no fumbling.

Skulls are kinda a thing with me. Every single motorized vehicle I have ever owned had a skull on it somewhere...
I found a skull ring in the very first dirt track car I ever raced and it became my lucky charm when I won my very first heat. Had that ring for 30 years until a house fire destroyed it. Thats when I started putting skulls on all my motor toys.
And yeah, The two metal skull emblems I bought at autozone were over $20 bucks.
Still, it was worth it. Mine are chrome like yours, it just looks black at the angle of the pic.I had one on each side but the sticky stuff wore out on the mag side and one fell off. I still have it and I might just drill some holes to screw mount them both again someday.

Here are some more pics of my Pig


Here is another bike I used to own. Different skull.

If your fuel valve doesn't end up in the right spot after being tightened down in the gas tank, you can get 10mm shims used on RC cars in order to adjust its final position and still use the fiber washer.. Hit up the local hobby shop and ask for 3Racing part number 3RAC-SW10, Yokomo ZC-S100S, or Tamiyha 53588. Or order online.

I installed my 4-liter peanut tank on my rear rack. The rack broke, so while replacing it, I decided to hide the tank.

All I did was slit the bottom of a gym bag, slip it over the tank and voila!

Gym bag on a bicycle.

I bought two new tires today I got those half street tire, half knobby and hate them even pumped up to the max they are very sloppy and my lean/ dodge bumps has suffered immensely. I gotta get myself some real street tires, these junk ones are Kendra cheapo's from Benny's . I figured the softer feeling rubber would give me a smoother ride. Boy was I wrong these things are all over the road.
I will give them a few tanks and see if they improve

When breaking chain on the bench but checking length on the bike, use a zip tie around the link you want to remove so you don't lose your place and make it too short (or long).

High quality, cloth covered 5mm fuel line is available from your local air-cooled VW parts house.
