Any moped owners?

Unread postAuthor: iisthemuffin » Wed Oct 08, 2008 7:36 pm

I recently purchased a moped and im loving it. Its a Kentic USA TFR.

Tops out at 30. (for now).

When i get a new job im planning on buying a new carborator and boring out the 50cc engine.

Anyone else own a moped?

You know, ever since i got the thing, people always say "i have a car".

Good for you! So do i!

I only ride the moped for fun or for short distances such as down the street to a friends house or the store. It gets 100 MPG which is awesome. I dont really care if you drive a flipping car. that is not what i asked.

And im sure Theopia is a great place for this kind of thing but Spudfiles has a none spudgun related section and i intend to make use of that. I think it is crap that everytime a person makes a topic in this section a Theopia reference is made.

Just lay off people. I did not ask which site would be best to post a moped question. I asked if any other people that enjoyed making spudguns also enjoyed mopeds.

I do not intend to be rude and i apologize if i come of as if i am.

I got the new carburetor installed a couple days ago and the drive chain just came in so I put it all together and did a test run to work and back. Still have a lot of work to do including putting brakes on it because it currently has no brakes (why I had to walk it down the hill):

Sounds pretty nice. It would have been nice to see the bike though.
