The end of the 2017 riding season is close, we celebrated this eventful year with a party. We the local artist and rapper L:Ron:Harald come by, to make us some grafitti artwork. While he was busy spraying, we rode our mopeds, raced them and had other fun challenges.
Another spreadsheet i’ve made, to calculate the speed of your moped at a given RPM. You need to know the details of your engine, gearbox, sprockets and rear wheel. You can find most of it in a spare parts catalogue, or simply count the teeth on all sprockets.
I’ve made a spreadsheet that you can use to calculate the ingition timing, to convert mm before top dead center to degrees, and reverse. I think the file is self explanatory, click the link below and try it out.
My friend Allan had a dream to build a low and simple Puch maxi for shorter rides. We found a Manet Korado that had a good engine and some nice 16″ rims. We kept the parts we could use and sold the rest again.
Another Small Pistons member had a rigid kickstart frame for this project, all the other parts where bought new at JMPB.
We kept the design very simple, everything that isn’t necessary for riding is removed. Allan wanted a low Maxi in black and white design. Check the gallery how that turned out, remember to read the image comments:
