Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Not today, but yesterday I fired up my bike for a quick ride. This was the first time I've been on it since I broke my toes (not bike related) in September. Once my foot was back together, it's been kinda chilly for riding here in Maine. In the mean time, I had put on a new seat and a layback post from sportscarpat. That new combo is great, feels much less bicycle like and much more motorcycle like. I don't expect I'll get to ride again before spring with the temps coming down but it sure was nice cruising in warm 50 yesterday.

Just took my mobi for a 2.5 mile spin. Taiwan speedometer works fine. I didn't take my GPS along, but it seems reasonably accurate.

Ouch Knightscape!

Ya can break any thing and still function. But any thing foot related is a big ol' bummer.

Gets ya to the work. (or the party. Optional thing)

I actually did it last week, but didn't get around to posting it till now. The darned thing would run pretty well, (for a couple minutes) then almost die, Then take off again for a minute, Then almost die, WELL, I cant ride it like that So I checked the head, intake and all that cause it's gotta be sucking air from somrwhere! The only thing left was a bottom end seal. SO having all those good bottom ends laying around with bad cranks, I picked out the best looking one and traded out my crank and clutch shaft. threw it back on the bike and it runs like brand new. Rode it about a 8 mile round trip to a Dr. appt. and it performed GREAT. Rode in the traffic lane all the way home because I was passing too much traffic and getting too dangerous. Kept up and still passed some in the 35mph zone.
I LOVE MY HUSSY

Such a shame that I have to get rid of this bike.

Finished up all the small stuff, blacked out what I could. Took it out for one last ride, didnt care if i got pulled over.

I got it up on the usual spots for sale. Im asking $350, but thats not even close enough to get a decent electric bike. If anyone is in South Florida and wants a good deal, let me know.

Nice bike. It's a shame indeed that your state doesn't allow motorized bikes. I was thinking about that last week, because I visited northern Florida and had to leave mine home.

They are now legal, but you have to register them at the DMV, get headlight, brake light, turn signals and a horn.
They inspect it, if you pass you get a registration and a tag.

But most importantly, you have to have a drivers license. They can and will arrest you for riding a motorized bicycle without a license.

Was just gonna say the same thing, Curt.

Is a great point, Chained. Some thing to consider, any way. Even if ya have to regular bicycle, bus it for how ever long.


$350 is crazy low for that bike, too. Me tinks Mon
