My shitty motorized bicycle...


As I had a problem with my computer making it impossible to update my rp, and I was bored, I decided to show you my scrap, but before i will introduce my self...
Even though my nick in Vstanced is Franklin, my real name is Juan, I live in Magdalena, Buenos Aires, Argentina, I am 15 years old, and 2 years ago I almost owned this piece of shit that I love so much




This is a motorized bicycle/mosquito/bicimoto.



Is a bicycle with a 48cc 2t engine kit, 50kmh max new, now idk how much...



Only mod that this scrap got is a short throttle and the muffler internal tube is cutted for modifying the sound a little, now sounds almost original but when letting off the throttle after acceleating make some little pops (Here i let you a sound test video , but in my instagram @bentosjuancito i have more quality pics and some videos, check in my profile and my "bicimoto project" stories)



but i want to swap the carburator for a one from a Zanella, a new exhaust and modifying the head cylinder.

It cost me 2300 argentinian pesos, very cheap but i need to fix almost everything, the steering broke the next day, the throttle broke at 2 weeks, also the clutch, i swapped the rear wheel 3 times, etc etc

This is a money pit, but i love it, the smell of the 2t mix being burned, the sound, the sensations, is a very funny and beautyful experience.

About 3 or 4 months ago the rear wheel broke, also the throttle and clutch , and about 3 day ago i fixed all, and driving it after 3 months was beautyful! Driving it in the oval in my city was just glorious

My plan is make a Cafe Racer Build/tracker buid, retro light, new paint, double christ front, etc



Something like this...

Now if this doesn't broke i will start with some mods when i earn some money...

If i make some progress i will upload it here, hopefully you will enjoy it...

Dunno how easy this is to achieve but you can always apply ceramics to the internals for better performance and reliability.


Also I almost forgot to mention one thing, you should really do something about the angle of the exhaust header or bend the lower part of the frame down to get more space because burning your leg onto that heat pipe would be nasty in case of an accident.

Thank you! Yeah, in monday i was involved in an accident with this thing, i was driving in a dirt street and when i was turning to the right, the wheel slided and i ended with a wounded knee for hitting the dirt and rocks, so yeah, also the exhaust , i will swap it soon for a "Escape Vejiga" (search it in google as Bicimoto con escape vejiga) , i will make that for better sound and avoiding burn my keg, and also my muffler is always falling apart, so yeah, first thing to do is swap the exhaust

Thank you bb! When this thing doesn't broke (bc in my town i can't find parts, that's why the repair took me 3 or 4 months) or i'm not involved in an accident bc the people in my town drive like SHIT , driving this thing is very funny!

Funfact, in monday when i finished the repair i drove it and at 10 blocks away the exhaust gasket passed away, and was making a horrible noise, like a diesel with straight pipe and fartcan, so i went to my home and tooked it out, so i'm driving without the exhaust gasket, but chill, is temporary lmao

Interesting to see stuff like this surviving the ages! Here in Indonesia there were a plethora of them up to the 70s, according to a certain book that I read. Afterwards they're all sort of gone and never spotted again. Take care of it and good luck tuning it! :D

Thank youuu!!! Here in argentina these things were almost trend about 6 years ago, later of that these things almost disappeared and now they're starting to appear more commonly on the streets, here in my town are about 6 or 7 of these, so yeah
