Just bought this wreck yesterday from the first owner. Guy bought it back in 82. Looks like I will have some work to do on this one. =) Found something the lady can ride once it's built.

Ok so my buddy Rice247 and I rolled out from Mira Mesa, to Ramona to pick up the bike this afternoon. Thank goodness for Rice247, and his truck or it would have been really a pain in the ass to bring the scooter back to the house.

So about the bike as asked. It's a 1982 and actually on the VIN in smaller writing it says 9/81. So i take it that's the created on date or what not. The owner I actually handed me the original PINK SLIP. Yes I really do mean PINK SLIP. It's about 3x3 in size and has the purchase date of it was a 3x3 Square of PINK paper, kind of cool. Some info on the PINK slip.

Date First Sold 00/00/82 Wow that's impressive.
Body Model Type = MC == Which classifies it as a Motor Cycle
Total Fees 32.00

Now thoughts on the Build
Color: Satin Black or Gloss Black don't know if they do satin colors with powder coating.
Engine: Either figure out whats wrong with the stock engine or move over to the Lifan semi-auto 125, or depending on if i can get some kind of clutch lever installed i would love to go with the 140cc manual Lifan.

So that's it for now... Now time for some photos...

Hahah the freeway legal Passport. Only $1,599.00 for that engine right???? I think our buddy could say something about that...

So I got a PM from the Wolfmanradio last night around 9:30pm. This is what he had to say about dropping the 140 into the passport.

Quote:
If you are asking if you can put a newer manual clutch engine in an old passport or trail, then the answer is yes. You will need a set of Met/Ruck handlbar control parts, like left and right brake levers. The left brake lever will now be your clutch lever on the passport or trail. I dont have any posts about this stuff. You should join the "Honda Clone" group on Yahoo. Just google it. Unlimited resource that is. Hooperimports.com is the best place to buy a new engine. Don't buy the 140cc engine. The 125cc is the way to go. The 140 has oil cooling issues, and the oil cooler kits dont work and always leak.


With this said about the hand controls maybe it's best for me to get these anyways since mine are pretty shot and unrepairable. I will take photos once i get home tonight. I was also thinking that the color scheme i may go with is satin black, and anything chrome will be Black Chrome. So the scooter will be technically Satin Black on Black Chrome.

Looking into tires or tyres as the British spell it... Seems kind of expensive to me about 30+ bucks for each tire and not including the inner-tube. Also what your guys experience with these tub type tires? For me if i get a nail in my Zuma 125 tire oh well, if it stays filled with air I'm all good, or i plug the tire in a few minuets.

I found this site... any other places with better deals.

I get my tyres from dratv
I think like $40 each, then raped for shipping
I think maybe $30 because of the size
I always get new tubes its so much easier to push in a vacuumed out flat tube and not risk it getting pinched and a slow leak
save your self the hassle and just get new tubes when putting on a new tire


as for tire I got what was available and looked cool
you can go a couple sizes wider too if you want I went stock which is very skinny
next ones I get will be wider


if your doing a 125 save yourself the hassle and get semi auto and electric start
wont have to worry about controls
if you have to have a clutch get the lifan thats n,1,2,3,4 pattern
2 reasons
first they are known to slip out of gear with the other type shift pattern
and with the other type most times you have to be in neutral to kick start and cant touch the clutch
where the shift pattern I posted you can be in any gear and kick start with the clutch pulled in
so if you stall in traffic its really quick to get going again, instead of trying to roll the bike into neutral, because its so hard to shift into neutral its like 1/8 of a difference pressing down usually you go into first
takes alot of practice to get into neutral from a stop

if your doing satin plasti dip it then
makes the same color and easy to apply



oh ive never had a leak yet with my oil cooler on my 140cc but then I spent $150 on my cooler
there are cheap ones that use small lines, crap connectors and a block for a cooler
mine is a radiator type, stainless braded hoses and an fittings
got 1000 miles on that setup

got yourself a nice mess right there
looks like a nightmare
did you label any of those connections?
they get confusing

no interest in seeing if the engine runs yet instead of tearing it all down

I need to order a ignition and key set. i just said the hell with the motor since it will be out of the bike soon. Once out of the bike i can pull it apart, and get things cleaned up. I will probably end up doing a compression test while it's out. Hook up the Zuma battery to the electric starter and get a compression reading and go from there.

I want to get the bike prepped for powder coat... Then i may decide to go with the 125 and don't have to deal with this old motor. SDRuck lent me some ruckus controls and they are a little bit bigger than the C70 handle bars in diameter. Maybe i can use some kind of shims... The controls i have are beat. Also having a hell of a time, removing the brake cable from the right hand control. Seems like the brake cable end is pressed into the hand control.. :headbashing:

I said like 3 times the bars are smaller then normal bars
you have to weld on larger bar or shim it to fit controls
safer to sleeve it and plug weld it
I can do that

yeah i know what you said but then again in Wolfman's post it made it sound like they just fit. I will end up putting some shims in. Also the ruckus ones hit the metal headset area.

I'm looking to go with these on the left hand controls
http://www.ebay.com/itm/390531202109?ss ... 1438.l2648

notice it has the choke adjustment on the hand controls which makes it nice.

you changing the throttle side too
I would be worried the shims cant grip enough and cause everything to move
and on the throttle side thats no fun
had it happen before


see if the bars remove easily I cant remember how they looked under the cover
replace with 7/8 bars

you start patching things together and it wont last long with the extra vibrations the new engine will have
just like the gy6 swaps everything comes loose sooner or later unless you cotter pin everything
when you do the rear wheel take off the sprocket bolts and red loctite too
they can vibrate out, get sheared off from the swingarm if your lucky
