The disc fluid reservoir is clear so you can see the level at-a-glance- you won't have to put off those vital checks until you have a spare moment! The balancer shaft also spins above the 5-speed gearbox helping to spray the lubricant over the gear wheels as it dampens out the vibes. If you are not completely satisfied with our service please let us know how we can improve. In my student flat I spent ages repairing the cracks and painting it up and my dad took the aftermarket smoked screen to work and had the boffins there clean up the melted and paint ridden surface. The chassis could cope with a lot more performance but Honda claim it isn't possible to tune the engine. The simplest performance enhancement; fit an H100A engine! It was mental, really quite dangerous and hard work. It also gained a nose fairing around the headlight and Clip-on style handlebars. Saying that Barry probably had his fair share of birds too.
We also strive for a 5 out of 5 star service in all areas when leaving feedback. A fuel tank breather was also introduced and a revised side stand was also fitted, the ordinal suffering cracks around the mounting bolt hole. Like a first kiss, or similar encounter with another human being, a first bike sticks in the memory forever, spurring rose tinted thoughts of days gone buy and is the reason behind the resurgence of interest in the sports moped scene. On the flat, and with a lightweight rider on board, the top speed could just nudge over the 30mph mark, however, the slightest incline would see this drop quite dramatically. The massive finning on the engine is also said to aid low-speed cooling. By doing all of the above you should stay on the right side of the law! It's a machine that will set new standards, a machine to be proud of. There were all sorts of his mates hanging round whilst I stripped them and I was keeping an eye on my tools to be honest.
Packed with brilliant new engineering developments. The clip-on type bars, the small fly screen and the cast alloy wheels all suggest this bike can move, what a pity it's all a sham. See you outside the chippy…. The Gibson Allspeed pipe looks mottled too and that black chrome finish is hard to redo. You should have seen the taller ratios in the 1st, 2nd and 6th gears. You do get an impression of speed, but that's all you get. I dont need any blow up dolls yet either i may be over the hill but not passed it, i just need the pair them out the garage.
The tyres are still the same 25+ year old set and the tax disk holder still has the paper insert that they were sold with, not a tax disk, and even the key still has the blue keychain. Some people call tall, gearing up, or wide. The extra weight is a result of the fairing. Since the engine produces just about zero power, and therefore heat, we would think that the cooling fin size is designed for looks rather than efficiency. Although the H100 exhaust was ok it did distract from the original look with it being chrome and a bit longer than the original. The pedal cranks axle ran in parallel behind the swing arm axle via a unique swingarm with a secondary chain linking the pedalling sprocket to a secondary front drive sprocket. Being in the dark in that environment was 'interesting' to say the least.
It's from a H100S and as you can see it goes all the way to 75 mph. Typical for Honda the engine is a little over engineered as it features a balancer shaft to reduce vibration and this feature was retained in all of the M series engines. More like a Charlie Sheen, as i use to pull a few birds back then and have probably caught what he has too!! You will also need the exhaust of the H100A bike as well. Thankfully the rest of the bike is well designed, with lots of room on board thanks to the long seat and low footrests that allow the larger rider great comfort, and the brakes work well too. In our online shop you can find countless parts like manifolds, stickers and steering parts. A good example of this is the main frame, each model is similar looking from the outside but, once stripped of their bodywork, the two machines are actually completely different. Try not to install it twisted like this picture oops! This is done by restricting the diameter of the first part of the exhaust, and another restrictor is placed between the airbox and the carburetor.
It featured a relatively unusual design in that the fuel tank stretched underneath the seat so that it could leave some room for the 2-stroke oil tank which is situated at the front of the fuel tank. Here are the gear ratios for the 2 motorcycles. Basically, the power unit is a single cylinder two-stroke with reed valves controlling the intake. Then the red one came along and thought i would do that too, but these dreams never happen. So they have sat around in my garage for a few years with nothing happening to them apart from me getting the black one mot'd now and then with less than two miles between each one.
But how fast can you really get a 50cc bike going? This will make the 1st gear a little taller. It never was a big hit there, as the French preferred French mopeds over Japanese ones. There simply isn't enough power to keep up with the majority of the traffic which flows nearer to 40mph than 30. The sprocket selection will be need to be done on your own, because everyone has different modifications and horsepower. Some people transplant larger engines for other motorcycles, usually it is a lot of work to do, but if you have the skills, then bigger is always better, right? Dampener rod forks in front and twin 5-position adjustable shocks on a conventional swingarm in the rear. I would like to sell as a pair but may split if the money is right do an ebay search see what they are going for Wont be long before they are getting the same price as the old fizzies! Even with a modest amount of throttle you can lift the front wheel by dropping the clutch although it's not recommended to help transmission life! I will give you a guide, but you may end up buying more than 1 set of sprockets after you test.
It was probably originally tidy but by the time a few punters had been through them the bike parts were piled high in various dangerous stacks inside the containers and oil was all over the rotting wooden floors. It's difficult to believe any two-stroke this small needs such a device to damp out vibrations and it may just be a way of increasing the flywheel mass without building a large crankcase to house it. Mental for a small bike and meant you needed to sit forward to ride it or it would freak you out. I purchased an unrestricted rubber link hose to link the air box with the H100 carburettor as the original is heavily restricted. I cleaned it up as I reassembled it so it was mint again. You can order the parts by using our easy-to-use website.
First gear is very low. All of some of the 1979 models had a 4-speed transmission, or gearbox as some call it. Its had two new tyres fitted and a new battery and has been serviced. It seems he bought it from the guy I sold it to, even tho the ad said the company had got it in a trade on 6months prior. I don't want anything in px, unless its your wife and she looks like the birds i pulled when i was 16 i have had all the toys in the past,on the road or in the water, I have had the speed boats, jet skis, road bikes, track bikes off motorcross etc. This is a 2 stroke, 70cc kickstart engine, 5 speed manual with clutch, hits speeds above 55mph, 50+mpg, 1 huge smile ride.
Not Because of me just coz it was raining You guys of my age who are looking at this know that back in the day, if you had one of these the camel toe was on tap! It has non glare speedo and tacho instruments - easy to see even in hars h lighting conditions - well positioned controls, and a low centre of gravity, all of which help make riding easier and safer. The combustion chamber is a new design and this, Honda claim, allows the engine to run at low town, speeds without fouling the plug. Any questions regarding this or any other screen please don't hesitate to ask. All content copyright Jon Wallis 2009-Present. The use of potentially noisy, straight cut gears, was a relatively good one, as the usual helical primary gears do eat up even more power and, with a mere 2. With a nice Ducati sitting in the garage and too much work on, even if i did get them looking showroom would i really ride them? As such all text on this page is protected by enforceable copyright.
