Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

I bought my 50v about 12 years ago when I was 17. Rode stock for about two years and then went to a Parmakit 74cc, a janky circuit pipe, and 16 SHA. At the time I thought I did a ton of other stuff but looking back it wasn't much more than bar and a seat.

It was fun but I didnt really get the Moby thing until this year. I just wanted to make it reliable. So I got a La Party CDI and a Black Gun pipe. A friend of mine saw it and lent me a 21 PHBG. And then a four year relationship ended and I want deeper into the Moby hole than I thought possible. The goal was 60mph; 55 is all I got.

So in the last four months I have done a crank, variator, case matched, head, cdi, pipe, carb, intake, bars, controls, lights, and I have a few parts on the shelf that never made it. Meanwhile me and my friend are talking about making a super ripper. Then I blew out the threads in the Parma. Tried to JB weld the fucker back in and it lasted about 10 miles. So with a long Maine winter ahead it's time to build the bike.

I'm not sure the speed I'm trying to go but fast is the goal. Curently I have some parts in the mail. An Airsal 70cc Water cooled kit. A Polini race case from treats. An airbox from an ausi Kart comapny, and a 28mm intake. I'm hoping to do a PWK 28mm Stage six. not sure the radiator yet but the mizzimoto seems right. Party cdi, er3 vario, ebr fork, wheels, dics, swing arm, shock, basically all of it.

Carb, bars, and a fairing that broke.

Re: Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

Sweet. I'm interested, sounds like fun.

You might have them but from the list I'm noticing you don't have a clutch pulley, you will probably want that, also a pullstart maybe and an aftermarket spring if you need it for those cases?

Re: Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

Ya. I honestly just got tired of writing. The er3 I’m running has a clutch function and the stock pulley has been ok. But to do the swing arm I have to pull it so might try to swap out for something nicer. I’m on alibaba right now trying to get a Pull start from Brazil. I think the red dipper is easy to come by but want to look into gas shocks first. Setting up a launch lever will be good. But don’t want it to be necessary, more use it for fun here and there

Re: Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

Its been a while and things are going well. The frame is coming along. I have a friend who can help me weld it up but he's a busy man. So i started thinking about the fork and the seat

Re: Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

Got all my engine stuff in and built that, after case matching the ports.

Re: Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

Then i realized maybe your french bikes don't love you, because you don't love them. And it starting to feel like I'm not building the bike but the bike is building me.

Re: Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

Those brazil pull starts only work on the funky brazilian stator and cases. It's a bummer.

Re: Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

Dude I can’t get anything to work on Alibaba. Shits a no go. I’m going to build one once I get the cdi sorted

Re: Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

Alibaba is set up for bulk orders. Aliexpress is the single item dealio. If it ain't there or the guy doesn't want to deal with a single order deals over....

There's alotta threads on making them here. But honestly dude. Recoil starters are just an over complication. I started my Moby for years with just a strap of leather wrapped around the flywheel.

I certainly understand it when your doing the tuning, but once starting is dialed in a 3ft strip of leather that narrows from an inch to a half an inch worked great for me. I even got fancy and added a wooden dowel after a year or two...

I have to admit that the kick-starts are super sweet when working right.

Good job, Sam. Seen a few silly posts on here, but these pics got a good chuckle out of me. Damn frenchies do need love too

Re: Av10 Build Thread: Disco squid

Doing the frame work is hard because I need a friends help. Good news is Becky with the good tools let me come by to start cutting stuff up. In Zeros liquid cooled video he mentioned engine mounts ripping off. So we started fabbing up some reinforcements.
