whitey the motoped

ok. this isn't totally a standard build thread like the guzzi, which i basically fabbed everything from scratch (and may one day actually finish ). this is more of an assembly of parts. i'll do some cool custom stuff just because i can't leave the cnc machine quiet for too long, but nothing spectacular. kinda like orange county choppers sorta work. in addition there isn't really a build thread for a motoped that i have found which doesn't feed some bullshit about how perfect everything is, nor do they have the details of the whole assembly.


so here we go. gotta start somewhere. why not build a stand? welded this thing up using scrap that was lying around the shop. the hinge is to adjust engine and bike angle later on so it all sits nice and flat like.

sorry. had to run off there to the powder coaters to drop the frame off...

so picked up a new 125cc engine with 4 speed manual clutch and mounted the bad boy to the stand.

here's the stuff that comes from motoped in their base "frame only" kit. they do use a special hub, but it wasn't in the box. next step is to find out where the hell the hun is! frame removed and dropped off at the powder coater this afternoon. going to leave all the other bits in their sexy annodized state



and some close ups of the parts and their dead sexy welds.

swingarm with a little glimpse of the stainless exaust




the muffler does not appear to be coated with anything. may have to look at either powder coating it, or some spiff high temp coating.



and the tig welded bracketry on the frame

sorry mate... it has been on pause due to a major move, followed by reno, followed by trying to make some money. this motoped shouldn't take too long, then back to the goose full time! i have some new plans for the tank and seat to make it more of a hooligan than an old skule cafe bike.

Great to hear! I was worried you'd abandoned it!!

I like the motored tooo

I have a 50cc Guzzi Robin and I swear it's as fun to ride as my full size Motos (in a different way)

The burning question... What will become of the tank & seat!?!?!? Are they for sale?

Don't forget the build list.

Very curious about the parts you chose and why plus where you sourced them

Are the parts you chose better than those that come in the complete kit?

Did you save money buying the parts yourself vs the complete kit?
