I just aquired an APC Mini Chopper bike in used condition, that hasn't been started or rode for about 2 years. I know that Pep Boys used to sell these for about $400-$500 a few years ago and I noticed the bike company is not around anymore. I'm just tinkering around with it and was wondering about a few things. I would like to find out more about the hobby and possibly enjoying this chopper with my kids.
What is the cc size of the engine, 43 or 49?
I do not have the key and I was wondering, is there a way to reroute the wires, so that I can turn it on without a key and what wires go to what (2 yellow, 1 green, 1 black)? All of the wiring is fully intact, I'm trying to hopefully bypass the key switch.
Will the bike start up with the pull start, without having the key or do I have to disconnect that wire, that is connected to the engine?
Last question, for now, does the choke have to be all the way up or all the way down, before I start it?
Before these pics were taken, I've cleaned it up alot, wiped it down, got rid of most of the rust, filled the tires, greased the chain, changed the spark plug and air filter. Before I go ahead and start it, I'd like to make sure I touched all the basics of what I need to do. Hopefully some users can help me out with any ideas or helpful hints.
Thanks in advance and I will now continue browsing the forums and getting more ideas. I didn't know that this was such a big hobby and it's great to see what people have done to their rides.
