Mag X has a bad crank

Looks like I have a bad crank on the Mag X. 
It was a stock roller crank but seemed fine with I build it.

Mag X first start

Got it running last night. 70cc Airsal, High Comp head, 15mm Bing, Treats CDI w/piecard 4021, Puch Proma. 

Update. Fixed the carb. Its a 15 bing and had the wrong slide and atomizer. Now it has the correct 217 atomizer and 24 slide.  Runs way better.

Magnum X kick start lever replacement

The magnum x e50 has a different angle for the kick start lever. So a regular kick start e50 lever will not work. I didn't want to order an expansive one from Europe so I started looking at other levers. I found a Tomos lever and it was pretty close. 

I had to cut off this tab. 
Make a notch on the top. 
And flip it upside down, and it works great.

Magnum X80 runs

I hooked up the throttle and kicked it over. Started right up. I rode it around a little and it is super fun. It has the power of a mild Hobbit Dr but has gears. So much fun, I cant wait to ride it more.

Update: Puch Proma bendy

The Proma I put on the mag x was hitting my leg so I had to get bendy with it.

XT250 Project

I picked up an XT 250. Runs great. Sounds like a big fart. 
Plans are to swap an rm80 small wheel front end, lower the rear, change seat and maybe tank, new exhaust, and get it road worthy. 

This is a spare frame that I am swapping things over to as I build it. This is the wrong end mocked up.

Lots to do yet. Just getting started. 

I also made a block off plate for the oil injector.

Magnum Stuff

Working on Magnums. Big ones and little ones. 
Picked up a crappy Magnum XK and got it running last night. It just needed a carb clean. Still have to adjust cables and general maintance, But it should be good to go. I will have to do something about the gas tank. Someone creamed it but its flaking out. I might soak it with MEK and melt it out. 

I have also been working on my Mag X project. I got a little bendy air filter pipe so I dont get blowback. My last Mag X with a bing had horrible blow back so the back of the bike was all gassy and collected dirt. This should help with it.

Puch Magnum Project

Picked up a 78 Magnum from an auction. Looked pretty rough. When I got it home it turned out to be in pretty good shape. It has 347 miles on it and started with fresh gas. The seat is trash so Ill have to find a new one or make one.
