hello all, let me share to u all what happen last week while i am not around

some folks in local forum invite me and my not so normal smallie to compete in a semi legal fun race and i said yes..

for a while i though i will be just fun race but since i am using largeframe engine in a smallframe body my class were predicted isnt a stock class so i am in trouble since my engine is completely stock Crying or Very sad emoticon

since i also have a pride although i didnt have much money to buy racing part like pinasco nor mallosi or any other u might see in a race bike so i improvide my not so normal smallie with some part for other type of vespa in order to atleast make it faster a bit while the rest will be my skill and luck

enough talking now here's what i do, any advice and input will be highly apreciated


first of all my priority will be the front area as recently i sense my front isnt stay too long in a line, after i dismantle it turn out my fork were moving so i had to make it stiff since i cannot affrod to buy any part i modified my axle fork pin with a brass and put a washer between the fork and the front swing arm, and yes its stay still now and improve the front sector

after that i move on to engine area after i drop the engine

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text
yes its a excel gear, it have more roughed teeth

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text
barrel with 3m piston

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text
excel drivetrain

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text
strada clucth (23 teeth)

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text
a right engine casing to accomodate bigger crank shaft

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text
kinna like this minus the crank shaft Razz emoticon


after putiing all the parts inside the engine is ready

last thing i do, i paint it with my favourite colour in order to bring luck Razz emoticon Razz emoticon

guess thats all and i am sorry if u didnt see any race parts as what common been done when u want to upgrade ur bike but like i said its my cheap method as i dont have much money in my safe box so please gave me cheap advice and input for the final touch

have a nice day and cheer everyone

I think even with a stock-ish engine you have an advantage due to your frame being a good bit lighter than a p series. Better power to weight ratio is always a good thing

hyhy the barefoot one is my friend that gave me all that spare parts for $30

i will be sure post a pics of the race day but i am sorry it seem i wont be able to participate as the race took place in a sentul international circuit so all rider that participate most use safety gear which mean a full face helmet, racing suit and shoes alongside with the gloves

my biggest problems will be finding the racing suit that come in my size, and i've look all over the shop that rent suite for race but none possed my size Crying or Very sad emoticon Crying or Very sad emoticon

we'll see what happen next

ps: still not find the perfect jetting for my not so normal smallie with be1, seem i need to get the be5 for the 20-20 carb which mean i need more money and thats a crap

But I don't know if I'd take this post over "Does my scooter match my shoes?".

Nice work Ebeth. Been thinking about my Indo boys lately. Saw a film called "Chocolate" about a little mauy tai girl. There's a lammy in it.

And my buddy has some festival pics from a village in Pecatu on fbook.

The artist in the villages are spot on. All of the character driven props are hand made and hand painted.

Alright thanks buddy my smallie is currently doing nothing - although I 'finished' it this summer, I'm thinking about pulling it all apart again. Got a new floor section to replace the rusty bent one (which I sort of straightened with a hammer and disguised with checker-plate), could definately use new steering bearings (and a PK fork perhaps), some wiring (need a horn! and I fancy bar-end flashers too), a glovebox, ET3 banana, and some paint. Another fucking 'paintjob' Laughing emoticon

For some reason I'd like to tear the motor down, and put it back together with some fresh stuff. I'm betting against myself that it ain't gonna happen

Have a good day, Indonesia!

this changeing make the front area lower and suite my height but unfortunatly when i do the test ride to the mountain side the shock were too low and bounce like a wild horse Crying or Very sad emoticon Crying or Very sad emoticon

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text

so i swap back to the old excel shockbreaker i use after all i cannot make the rear anymore low as the fuel seem kinna difficult entering the carb since the fuel tab is sitting lower.. well after all its a not so normal smallie so i guess that just the way how things goin

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text

for now my not so normal smallie upgrade is complete

have a nice holiday and cheer everyone
