Re: Turning reeds around...is this a good idea?

Great job on the tensioner, sometimes its hard to make them work right.

Thanks, it's my second/third attempt at it.

V1.0 wasn't a bad idea...it just didn't work as well as I was hoping for. This one V1.1 is possibly still a little light on the spring tension, however it's working fantastic...So I'm going to not do my usual and "try fix something that's not broke". If it ever does let me down I'll just increase spring tension then.

Hi guys, been a while since I've checked in here. I've got a bit of reading to do in order to catch up...

I've made a few more things lately:

And here it is on first start up with pipe on. Since this video I've upgraded the carburetor to a larger walbro.

I finished Mitch's trike. Using industrial chain now, as opposed to the junk Chinese chain I'd been previously buying. So much better!

And just started this one. It's going to get a water cooled pocket bike motor on it. Should be a bit of fun once completed.

And the reason why I'm putting a pocket bike motor in it? Well I got lucky and brought 4 water cooled bikes for $100usd. Plus an extra motors, frames, forks, wheels etc etc...so much stuff. The guy raced 10 years ago...but gave up, and I got lucky.

Well, looks like some ones been busy, the water cooled deal sound real good. I am still looking for a coil bracket and water pump pulley, hard to find now.

No rest for the....

Here's the pocket bikes I just scored. Haven't had time to really go through it all, having just picked them up tonight. However I'm stoked!

They all work, and the guy really knows his stuff. He drained all the fluids out prior to storing them. He gave me some o-rings for the water pumps, saying these normally need replacement. And heaps more stuff.

Here's some photos off the auction site:

The bikes that go will be kept that way. The spare motors in the parts bin will go on my latest drift trike and a goped bigfoot that I'm currently working on.

#17 looks like a GRC GP, all alum frame, like my avatar bike, or 50cc Banshee Sho. Does it have a Blata W/C engine?

Yes, replica. 2 are blata steel chassis replicas and the other is aluminum framed replica.

I got so much stuff off this guy. He was so generous. I haven't had a chance to unpack every box yet, but there are 3x complete bikes that shouldn't take much to get going again.

And enough parts to make a 4th...plus a brand new motor as well. Boxes of carburetors, manifolds, air filters etc...etc...

Got it all back home now. In the weekend I'll unpack it all and figure out what I've actually brought. Keen to learn more about it all and get stuck in.

Re: Turning reeds around...is this a good idea?

Just one bike is worth $100 USD, what a Steal, lol. I remember the C2 now. When I bought my 50cc C1, @ Tsunamibike in Canada, the had that alum framed C2 also. There are 2 W/C engines, the 39cc and the 50cc. 37mm bore and 39.5mm bore and both have a 37mm stroke.

Thanks EPR, he said they were 39cc. Theres a couple motors in a box taken apart, I'll measure those up out of interest.

I did a bit of research last night on water cooled pocket bike motors transplanted onto gopeds. I found thus bad boy!

So that's going to be my inspiration going forward. A version of this, but with my own parts made to adapt it, as it will be done on a budget...unlike this one where he used top end parts purchased from stores.

Next (or more likely simultaneously) I'll start the water cooled drift trike build.

The C1 Bigbore with 39,5mm bore has 45cc.

Re: Turning reeds around...is this a good idea?

I figured around 46cc. Everyone rounds off the cc numbers. Honda 750, 736cc, my CB1100F was 1050cc. I ordered a new 50cc cyld & head. Some how it was bored at the China factory to 40mm, they gave me the parts, I modified a 40mm Banshee Sho piston to fit. It was .028" above the top of the cyld so I had to mod the piston top to clear the cap. It has more compression than stock.

Just for a laugh I put this monster tacho on my trike that I'll be racing.

I made a 12v battery using 8x AA batteries in series hidden under the seat.
