Hi all!

Just wanted to post a brief update. My after-school Moped "PIT Crew" program starts next week so things will be ramping up in this thread.

So far we've had a couple changes to the original plan.

We will be running kx80 forks in the front with a 19" wheel and disc brakes. I was able to source a setup in CT and will be picking that up next weekend for some braking power. The hope is the forks will be much better at handling the added weight of the trike, as well as stopping it.

Also it turned out the boner pipe I was gonna get was designed for a specific Sachs motor that doesn't have many exhaust alternatives, so the owner wanted to keep it. Ob piously this led to even more craziness. Dos cycles is sending me two mostly-complete circuit pipes which we will be welding up to make into an upswept, scrambler pipe that IDEALLY will travel up just under the seat and let out right over the crate in the back.

Other than that we've just been collecting the small parts.

Monday my students and I will make a rendering of the bike as well as disassemble the main 505 we will be working on. Additionally I think with all the parts we have we will one able to make a backup single speed motor, great extra practice for the students.

Oh I also found a real sexy motorcycle speedometer that seems to do alright with a moped speedo cable so I'm hoping to use that. Should look good on the kx80 front end.

Sorry for the lack of photos, next post will hopefully have a ton!
