Local Discussion (MidMopeds) / shop spots`, sunday cleaning?
« on: September 27, 2013, 08:13:41 AM »
So we are basically ready to start offering benches, but I need  help moving all my shit around so you guys don't have to wait another month. 


What about having a shop meeting on sunday at 1pm so we can tear down the wall, move my HH stuff into the old volt riders space, and get the far bay set up for wrenching?   With four to six people helping it should take about three hours. 


If you guys don't step up, it's not going to happen.    I just don't have enough time or energy to get it done by myself or with my workers.

General Discussion / Whats the deets on the URL and server?
« on: May 12, 2012, 11:19:45 PM »
So I see the board is running on the wikilou site.  Has the database always been there, or is it just being housed there temp?  I have midmopeds.com we could use as a front url for a while if we need something until mopedstl is back under control. Just let me know where to forward the domain to.

General Discussion / ZSlinker Memorial ride, May 12th
« on: April 26, 2012, 08:34:22 AM »
We are having a memorial ride for our good friend Zach.  The ride will be going to Hallsville where we have a free keg of beer offered to us from Bad Citezen pub. 

Bring a reliable bike, bring yourself, and get ready to ride! 


Zach will be leaving us to move to Portland.  While in Columbia he is considered youthful, witty, and pessimistic; in Portland he will be considered old, regular, and status quo.    Your all black clothes and attitude will be missed!

Bartertown / Trade Moby for Puch?
« on: March 23, 2012, 08:11:21 AM »
I'm thinking of letting the copper Moby go.   I think the timing has slipped on it, and it has some airleaks.  Needs a new cylinder or somebody who can fix the airleak at the exhaust header. 

I would be up to trade for a running puch, or about $300 cash.  Anybody interested?

Local Discussion (MidMopeds) / Honda Cub rebuild
« on: February 13, 2012, 10:54:49 PM »
Jared was so kind as to give away an old Cub 50 (or super cub, or something 50) that he bought years back and didn't fix up.  Alls I wanted was a frame to start with, and so RK and I stripped the bike down and had our way with it!   I seem to have a lot of parts for the honda 50s from back in my days of pit bikes, so I started collecting them together in anticipation of the build.  For the most part it will be a bolt and build bike!

The plans for the bike will be daily driver and back up bike at rallies.   I will probably have a wheelset with dual sports for going to the farm, I will be lacing my own wheels anyway so why not make an extra set?


Pics of what i have done later, it is all at work now. 


Pic now to make me wish I needed a chopper instead of a comfy bike:

Repair and Performance / HObbit tuning
« on: August 16, 2011, 12:46:59 PM »
I have a hobbit that just won't start right.  I keep cleaning the carb hoping there is something inside, but so far no luck.

Stock 3rd gen top end
stock carb and jet, mix screw 1.75 turns out
boyesen reeds and block
proma circuit pipe
Timing and gaps set to stock


It has fired off a few times when choked, but wont stay running when I take off the choke.   Something in the carb still?  Reeds messing up the mix?  John Rob never meant to have these fancy gas things? 


When it did start up a few times it had great power.  I want!
