FS: Unique BMX-style 70cc water cooled nc50

Rob GasketFace /

It hurts to let this go after all the work I put into it, but I rarely find the time to ride with two kids and it's a shame to have it just sit in the garage. On the other hand, it's so fucking fun to drive!

70cc water cooled kit, Polini pump, pull start conversion, powder coated everything, paint stripper can gas tank, VM18 carb

I got it to 50mph once in perfect conditions, can easily get it into mid 40s, some tuning work could get you into the 50s reliably I'm sure (I suck at tuning VM18s), but 40mph is plenty fucking fun on this little bike.

More info and photos (with old carb):

I'm in South Bend, IN. Near Chicago and Southwest Michigan. Swing by on your way to a rally and show up to your rally in style!

Asking $950 obo

Don't low-ball me because I'm looking for an excuse not too sell it.

Worth every cent....just needs fenders....LOVE it, bump!

Pretty sure I have the original fenders, will check tomorrow. They're orange. I'll throw in a big box of odds and ends like that with sale.

Browsing Buy/Sell I realized mopeds are selling for more nowadays than 4 years ago when I was last active here. If I get more than one offer with a few days, it goes to the highest bidder. If you're lucky enough to make the only offer, I think you're getting a very good deal. I put more $1000 into it in parts alone, don't get me started on labor...

Re: FS: Unique BMX-style 70cc water cooled nc50

so hilarious and awesome; thank you for bringing this to life!

Re: FS: Unique BMX-style 70cc water cooled nc50

how did you do the pull start conversion?

Re: FS: Unique BMX-style 70cc water cooled nc50

Rob GasketFace /

I used this method:

There are some videos for it too if you look. It requires a few spot welds on steel, but they need to be strong so you need a decent welder.

When I was driving it regularly, it would usually start in 1-3 pulls.

Re: FS: Unique BMX-style 70cc water cooled nc50

What headlight pod is that?

Re: FS: Unique BMX-style 70cc water cooled nc50

Sweet express, what is it, a 1-speed '80? I'm not in the market for it as I've got a much runtier, filthier, stockier '78 in my garage in Chi west burbs, but if you have any leftover OEM or performance parts laying around let me know, there are a few pieces I'm still looking for and I'm always looking for an excuse to ride a new train line (the south shore is high on my list)! Love that pull start, mixed with the robo-headlamp and the wild color it kinda reminds me of a Beyblade. GLWS!

I don't remember where I got the headlight, probably treatland a while back.

I do have a bunch of assorted parts, mostly OEM, will include with sale of wanted. If not, I'll hit you up Sam
