Sanding and Priming and Painting

I spent a lot of the weekend sanding and priming a magnum x frame and tank. I plan on making it as smooth as possible. I also used a little bondo on the tank do fill a larger dent.

Making a Honda Hobbit work

I picked up this hobbit awhile ago and finally got around to get it going.  I cleaned the tank, added a proma and cleaned the carb. It started up great but wouldn't idle at all. I cleaned the carb a couple more time until I gave up. After asking for advise I was told I needed to clean out the idle circuit well with a wire. I used an unraveled throttle cable wire and stuck it thru the idle circuit and wiggled it around for a while. After putting it back together it runs great!

Yamaha RD60 Rewiring

I spent a lot of time rewiring my RD60 this weekend. When I picked it up a couple of years ago it was hardwired for spark but  nothing else.
This weekend I stripped all the wires off and started fresh.
I went with the original 6v system. I added blinkers and an led brake light.

Puch Maxi finished

I have been working on a Puch Maxi for the last couple months and finished it this weekend.

LED par 36 headlight retrofit

I found a company called Larsen Lights that makes Par 36 retro fits for tractors. Most mopeds also use par 36 beams so I thought I would try one out.  It mounted just like stock and is super bright. They are 12v so you do need a 12v coil.
