BUILD DESCRIPTION

This is the bike where I got to meet the Cassarollers! I got this bike while I was working on an extended project in the Duluth area - well I got two of them, but the one isn't running yet. It has some really sweet Pirellis on it, which paired with its 2-speed shaft driven powertrain makes it a really fun bike - even when stock. I've got the MLM People's pipe for the QT50 on it. We found a kit on eBay for 47 bucks! This kit even came with new studs, a "high comp head", a soda can head gasket with cryptic Japanese writing on it, a new con rod needle bearing, and a weird generic spark plug. Stuff for the PW50 is still made, bolts onto the LC50, and is super cheap. It does have the oil injection delete plate from Treats, which simplifies things. I rented a truck to get down to Minneapolis to pick them up, the guy I got it from was pretty cool, he had a decent collection of mopeds and vintage scooters - I told him to get to some rallies, maybe the Casserollers', but he just wants to build mopeds by himself for himself. Maybe someday...
