Look what followed me home today!

Always wanted each and every one of these bikes. Gonna be a lifetime fixing them up except the gyro. That is pretty nice. The trike I'm gonna ditch the tomos stuff and use a motron frame with minarelli. The mb5 is going into the shed for hibernation until I can get to it.

Tomos looks like an ice cream or pizza vendor rear end

Re: Look what followed me home today!

Yeah it has a tag that said it had a fiberglass box

Yeah it needs everything. Top end is off. Front shocks are stuck. Switches and cables junk. I got the other bike with v1 polini kit so it will be pretty easy. Not a tomos guy.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

Close to a dream score.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

That is so awesome.....store the mb-5 well, fogg cyl etc....had one just like it, to this day kick myself for selling it. Very happy for you, keep us posted.....looks like your gyro tires are good, they are hard to find.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

This one has 3.00x8. I thought that was strange. The mb5 has been sitting in my buddys shed for years. The motor needs a rebuild. Bearings sound pretty crunchy but bike is complete. I will put it in storage until I get the hankering to fix it up. Probably just gather parts for it for now. Gyro is super cool. Super small but should be a hoot.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

If you need tires for the gyro, z50 tires should fit. They have 8 inch rims. Webike has a vast selection as well as chp or dratv.

I cant find any 3.00x8 tires. All I find is mobility scooter tires.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

You think 3.50 x 8 would fit? The rims are probably pretty narrow on that bike but I think you could use that size.

Shinko makes a 3.50x8 tire.

Not much room between the tire and engine. I did find some 2.0x8 tires that may work. Just as long as the heigh is about the same. Don't want to go smaller and lose speed.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

Trike has new rear tires so that is nice. Did a little measuring and gonna have to do a little trimming on the motron frame or modify the small frame that works with the tomos. Also got a kick start v1 that would be perfect for the trike. Gonna be a fun project

Re: Look what followed me home today!

sick! come to Cleveland and cruise with our tomos trike, gyro and MB5 someday!

I mean honestly those are 3 of my favorites in our entire stash and of all the junk I've owned. very cool.

Yeah when I got the chance to get them I was pretty stoked. I'm gonna get a fantic lei also. I like the strange bikes.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

If I had a garage I would offer a thousand Cash for the tomos trike.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

I'll gladly give up my tomos trike for a grand haha, though it is probably my favorite bike in the quivver

Re: Look what followed me home today!

Lol awesome hahahaha

Re: Look what followed me home today!

The reason I say that it's because I like painting and repair and Makin my moped look as good as it runs. It's the hobby. You moped people know that feeling when you are in the zone finishing something on bikes that works out perfect. It's fun hobby.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

Always wanted a trike so this is not for sale. Gonna be a fun ride.

Re: Look what followed me home today!

Sounds like you will treat it good! Congrats on the score

Re: Look what followed me home today!

I got new Sava 18's for the MB5 you can have

Got them from a good friend. He is slowly reducing his moped inventory and we made a trade so we both got what we wanted and both felt comfortable.
