Tomos ! Tx 50

Hey! Just snagged this little ripper for $120. Wasnt running when I got it, so I do what's done first.. clean the carb. And boom! She fired up.. took it down the street a few blocks and she sputtered and died out.. couldnt get her to start back up. Took the 52 jet that came with it and replaced it with a 57 out of another a35 dellurto carb I had laying around and she hasnt gave me an issue sense.. top speed i hit with gps was 26. Not shabby. Looking for the right plastic if anyone has one haha.

I was wondering if the a35 that came with the tx50 was the same as the ones found in other tomos like the targa.. If so, what are the differences? Got 2 project tomos targas lx underway and possibly a few more added to that this weekend! Thanks!

Re: Tomos ! Tx 50

Sweet little ride right there. The engine is the same on any a35 tomos of that year. I dont think they did different internal gearing setups, so the only difference is the larger sprocket they put on them for more low end, and to limit top speeds.

I feel like you have all the plastics that bike comes with already, what is missing?

Re: Tomos ! Tx 50

Thanks for the info! That's what I was thinking as well.. I'm missing the right side plastic.. unfortunatly treats has a bunch of left sides, but no right. (edited)

these are fun as fuck. we have one at our shop. i have a burn scar on my thigh from wrecking it.

Re: Tomos ! Tx 50

The motor is the same a35 that is on any other tomos bike. Your best bet for a shock is to buy a pitbike mono shock, I used this one on my build, but I also added big wheels so I needed a longer one. If you weigh more than 140 Iā€™d suggest getting a stiffer one.

Re: Tomos ! Tx 50

Thanks for the ebay listing. The ones I was looking at were 80+. Actually been thinking of extending the rear swing arm and possibly change out the forks and run some 16s from some other tomos I have.. kinda want wires though haha. Post a pic if you have one. I'd love to see it

You have 3 options really, take a tx50 swing arm and extend it like I had done with sliding in metal stock on the hollow arms and bracing it. Take 2 tx50 swing arms and combine them, or or take a revival swing arm and weld up a mono shock mount.
