BUILD DESCRIPTION

Built from spare parts and some scavenged pieces. Tail light made from an old boat marker. Custom pipe. Cylinder is the new two piece Sachs Airsal, not really the Puch version. I have swapped the headlight out for a custom unit made from some Moby AV7 cases. UPDATE 9-8-2014 - Pulled off the custom pipe and installed a peugeot SPX alsil instead. Managed to mount it and keep my pedal clearance, although I do have the left pedal extended an inch or two already. I pulled out the restrict from the header on the pipe and drilled a bunch of small holes in the end of the baffle. Seems to make a significant power difference and is much quieter. I have to GPS it, but when it gets moving it feels as fast as my Puch. I have also went down from the 15.15 to a 14.12. It seems to have helped my bottom end power a good bit. Still overheating after 15-20 minutes, but I may have a bad case seal on the ignition side. I hear a high pitched whining or whistle after it heats up. Also, new development, I have a small gas leak from one of the engine mount welds, left side. It's just a little tack weld that is weeping. Might have to braze it, or I'll just get some fiberglass tank patch and slap it on there.
