Free Spirit Hobbit Swap

I have been working on a free spirit hobbit swap. So far I made motor mounts and shortened the frame.

Tomos Revival A35

Picked up a Tomos Revival from a guy who said he stopped riding it due to an oil leak.
It is a pretty cool version. It is an electric start A35. Not many of those were made. It ran fine and started up easy but made lots of noise. I tried to fill the tranny with fresh fluid and it all drained out the bottom. . . Upon further inspection I found the case was cracked. I pulled it apart and one of the bearings had completely let go and there were loose bearings grinding around in the cases. 

I got new cases and will be doing a full bottom end rebuild. This bike is super fun and strange at the same time. It has so many random bits that are unique to this bike. Like the fake plastic tank.

Polini X3

Picked up a Polini X3. They are really similar to a KTM 50, Husky 50 with the Morini Franco engine. But the Polini is all its own. 
Got so many extra parts with it. A spare 70cc top end and even a full set of individually wrapped Polini spokes. 
The bike did not run, the ignition and carb were taken off and the clutch was not shimmed properly. I found the parts in the box and put it back together and it ripps.

Puch Magnum Seat redo

Redid a Puch Magnum seat for a friend. Used the old seat cover as a template. I used rivets and trim to attach the seat cover to the seat pan.
