A friend brought me this smallie he bought a year ago. Needs some TLC. Loved the quotes left on by the PO...

That's a sweet looking bike and I'm guessing has potential to be pretty zippy, too. And I LOL'ed at the first quote, too. Even if I then thought...wait a minute...it should be "quieter than your girlfriend," unless he's trying to say he's UNtalented....

Already zippy enough. Has a Parmakit 144 with a Mikuni TMX 30 on it. Exhaust, I think it's a JL VSP Race...

Cleaning up the bench for the next engine. Rally 180 lump to go in the GT160 or the vbc177 to go in the supah?

MotoBi wiring makes the Vespa look sophisticated.

Tarting it up a bit by running new wires inside the bars

Most excellent. I vote the Rally 180 for the Spanish Queen. That'll quickly become your favorite.

Hey there forum-mates.

I finally bit the bullet and installed artificial turf in the backyard here at Casa SoCal.

Now I'm looking for a sweet, old skool 2-stroke leaf blower. Naturally they're no longer sold new in California.

Anybody holding or know of one for sale?

Thx in advance.

on the real a blower is a game changer. depending on how big your area is, and what you're dealing with you might not need a Johnny kickass 2T backpack blower.

I have two makita blowers, one is a small jobs/bench top kinda deal the other is a long tube dual battery big boy. both work great. and if you're not moving a ton of material and have a reasonable sized yard then the dual battery might be the jam.

that being said, if you've got property get a backpack 2T unit. I have an Echo and it absolutely stomps the guts out of the makita and while it weighs a ton, it doesn't run out of battery 1/2 way thru the job.

also, I hit the superfecta over here: bougainvillea, crepe myrtle, Eucalyptus and pines. my green bins get a work out

and, yes, I do use the blower to clean the shop floor!

Better deal than the blue Scott's shop towels.
100 more for 12.00 instead 13.99 and just as durable.

Update - 9.50 at Walmart!

Good info g. Was thinking battery-powered might not have the juice to do the whole yard. Might have to get one and give it a test run.

to be fair... I ask a lot of the equipment. a person that has a reasonably sized yard would be more than satisfied with the performance of the makita. it's a XBU02 and uses two 18.5V batts and one of the attractions is that all my other batt power equipment is makita so I have a plethora of batteries.

it'll handle the usual blow off of grass after mowing and leaves in the drive and on pool deck. it's just when I want to blast *everything* it comes up a little short and it's always at the end of the driveway and I have to walk all the damn way back to the garage for another set of batts!

big perk is that it's not unwieldy and fairly quiet as far as blowers go.

Actually yesterday, but here we go.

Went to town for errands with my 5yo daughter on Hexagon 180. It's more comfy for kids to ride on since it has a windscreen and a seat big enough for three. Coming out of a mall I noticed something curious. Another Hexagon right in front of the doors with it's owner so of course I had to chat him up. Turned out his Hexagon is few years older than my 2000 model. It was sporting a bigger carb along Malossi 172. We exchanged numbers since I have Arrow exhaust for Hexagon waiting on my shelf since it did not give any benefit with stock cylinder and carb. Might not sell it but at least he can try it out to see how it works with the Malossi setup. Also he likes to ride his scoot SEA style with his two kids

He said the exact same thing about his scoot as I have many times said about mine: It's so ugly, that it is actually cool

Speaking of odd scooters, I just saw saw my very first Lambretta LUI 50 CL. 1969 so over half a century old, but looks like it could have been made today. What's really different is it looks like no tube frame, was it really made like a Vespa???

It is a pretty little thing, so Italian! I had no idea these existed so thought I'd share. This one's for sale by BELLO MOTO @ $7,995.

Those things must have been seen as absolutely futurist radical in 1969. It still looks damn cool today.

Yesterday, I took a break from smallie air leak hell, did the jetting adjustments on the GL that I've not gotten to for three months, then took it out on the road a little. It now happily shoots along at 70 on the highway. Fully heat soaked, CHT was at 365, which is a tiny bit higher than I'd like, but nothing I can't live with. More importantly, the 1/4-1/2 throttle 50-60 MPH range is now staying cool, which was always super-annoying.

I also discovered the real reason that the idle was so lean. I didn't have a 55 idle jet, I had a 35 . Upped that and it made a big difference. Stupid tiny numbers. Even with a magnifying glass, they're hard to read.

All's well that ends well, though, and it was a beautiful day to get out and put some miles on the GL in any case.

Joe Strummer, clash guitarist would put stickers that said that on his guitars. I think he started some time in the 70's?

Sorry... yes what Greasy said. It's a "cool kid way" (Read: Nerd Level Way) of saying "Imma Clash fan".

I picked up a HF lift for $200 last week. Cleaned up nice. Today was move a trailer, take out the Kendon lift and get the HF in.

I would say I'm getting too old for this shit but I'm a hobbyist so I'm tired and happy.

The last thing was a trip for a piece of rebar for the missing locking bar.
