Lokdizzo

by Shong Lee

BUILD DESCRIPTION

Picked up my first moped (Hobbit PA50II) in 2013. Two months later I found this one local from an older fella. I've always wanted to build a stretched top tank so I debated on a few different tanks (Garelli SSXL tank, Tomos Targa tank, a small motorcycle tank) until I settled on a decently priced Magnum tank. Two and a half years later I was finally motivated to finish the project after my dearest friend passed away. As a tribute, I name it "Lokdizzo." Engine: (Pretty much your basic hobbit engine build) Stuffed Crank Dr Kit Machined Jialang Head Vm20 Treats Hobbit Black Pipe TJT Variator (2.5 gram rollers) Camino rear pulley 2k clutch springs Frame: Hobbit frame and mags were powder coated by Precision Powder LLC in Greenville, Wi (Mags are a dark anodized bronze) DIY disc brake conversion Ninja 250 brake caliper Engine mount moved about 3 inches Puch Magnum tank and Puch seat pan off Treats. 400mm shocks Extra Junk: Trail Tech Vapor Unit In loving memory of Loka Lee - 1/27/16 Rest in Paradise.

Shong Lee: Thanks Damian, then forks are just stock hobbit forks. Eventually I'd like a front disc brake set up with mags and possibly redo the wheel powdercoat. Wish it was a lighter bronze. Was told it would look great in the sun by the guy who powdercoated them but still too dark for my liking.


damian daviid: this is insanely beautiful and well planned! what are the front forks? i love how flat against the wheel they are. kudos to a minimalistic beauty.


black garage: Awesome build!


Jared Kaczynski: Love the look!
