I got my daughter her first "motor bicycle" today. ;-) It's an electric 3 wheel motorcycle/scooter, like "power wheels". She hasn't quite got the hang of it yet, but she rode it today.
It's about like this, but broke in already :-)

I sealed up some leaks in my intake both at the carb and and the engine block end. I replaced the handlebar neck since the old one was letting my bars slip no matter how tight I made it. I also removed the broken speedometer from when my girlfriend crashed while trying to turn around :-)

I saw a video of a man in Mexico City riding on a 70cc china kit like that. He put a rubber automotive hose on it, clamped over the stock muffler pipe after cutting out the muffler guts, so that it extended down near the ground and was slash-cut at the end, supposed to take some of the high frequency sounds out of the engine noise.

I finally got to ride it more than just around the block.Not very far at all really. Maybe 4-5 miles there and same back to Sonic to get the wife a breakfast burrito. Then a few blocks to the store for onions and a third trip maybe 2 miles each way to visit a friend and show it to him. I'm thinking I might still want a motorcycle for anything more than a few miles at a time. Just wish I could find one for the money I have in my motorized bicycle.

It's not the speed. I left the governor hooked up on mine so I could make it go a lot faster, if I wanted to. This bicycle just doesn't have enough mass/weight to be safe at highway speeds and to get anywhere really, one needs to be able to travel comfortably at the same speed as the normal traffic. I also don't think these tires are safe at more than 20-28 mph. This is just my opinion on how I want to feel about my safety.

I started the day with some drywall sanding and remudding as I am remodelling my kitchen. Then, enough of actual work, I replaced the rear wheel (complete with new sprocket and chan) on my bike. Riding it in a few downtown to try it out. My old wheel, actually the third in a month, went bad due to a couple busted spokes and bent axle. It can be repaired, but I had this new wheel waiting. It is supposed to have a stronger axle shaft. Picked it up from the guy I bought the bike from for $5. He needed a beer!
