factory kick start model!
The 05 Sprint I picked up for 300 from its original owner has pedals though.
Heck an A35 kick start engine is worth more than I paid for the whole bike! Yeah, it was an excellent score!

Oh and I FINALLY have the clutch/drive all sorted out on my CH80. Had the bell cleaned up professionally and the clutch weights resurfaced with kevlar by JW Parts Plus in Flint Michigan. Excellent service and now with a new kevlar belt and some 8.5 gram rollers I'm RIPPIN! The intake ended up cracking and I had to replace it and the o-rings but now the thing is doing really well.

Glad you got it all sorted out. Ive never heard of clutch weights? Do you mean roller weights? And if so, please send photos, ive sanded them down before, but never resurfaced. I dont even know what that would mean.
Glad you sent it to those guys in Flint, they do good work.

Those clutches and the ones on the similar year ch150/200 are weird. The whole packing gease on a dry transmission thing is bazzar.

I had a 2014 piaggio BV 350 that I had the pleasure of taking the transmission apart on. Thats a crazy one too. Its a totally submerged wet (30w) clutch, also in a classic gy6 ispired dry transmission case. Worth youtubing...

No the clutch shoes are weighted so they are usually called "weights".

Seeing the pipe on you new toy reminded me of story:
I was working at a performance bike shop. After being there a couple of years, you can tell the boxes of dead projects that stay on the shelf. There was this beautiful expansion chamber hanging on the wall-work of art-just really tiny. "Whats that go to?"
" I got a customer in the Bahamas-I build his moped motors".
"Mopeds?"
" Yup. They have a 50cc limit on the island. So if you want to be a gearhead, you hop up a moped."
"How long has the motor been here?"
"A couple of years. He got busted for having his motor punched outand is in jail."
" You can go to jail for having a hot rodded moped?"
" Yea-the cops have a P+G." (Pump + gauge-a tool you can check displacement with)
I guess with so few rules, they REALLY enforce the ones they have!
I had suspisions of this being of this being more story than truth-till I found out a buddy I race with lived in Bermuda as a boat mechanic for 5 years. I told him the story-he said oh yea-the cops check you out big time.

The kickstart models of Tomos are registered and MC's like scooters are here..
The pedal model I'm leaving more or less stock. Stock bore at least. The Biturbo pipe sounds awesome. Has an older dirtbike thumpy kind of sound. I dig it, so I'm planning to use it on the black ped and Go with a better chamber and pipe for the green machine!

I've heard similar stories too, especially back in Moto Tech school.

I had a ct90 I got for $100 and fixed up and sold for $1100. That was before I got the skoolie, looking back I should have kept the scoot it would have been perfect for taking on trips. I have a 1978 kz440 that only weighs about 300lb or less, I might try to figure out a good rear platform to haul it around on trips.
