Re: What is the easiest old-style moped to convert?

The TYPE of moped bound to be easiest has a complete frame independent of the engine. You see them with the engine providing structure as either the swingarm or as a stressed member in the frame, which means either you build a replacement to the presence or you let it be in the way adding weight. If...

Re: Looks like this is my next project: Razor RSF650

The bike is stable at that speed? Just a reminder that stability can be not so much in the eyes but in the hands and seat of the be-sitter. I find shocked forks and that better rear shock combined with those fair sized wheels promising, but it's still a smallish bike. And don't forget those hydraul...

He's been mentioned here before. The article makes one important point: People DO want Bitcoin. So maybe they'd be smarter to listen to Mc, but we're talking about PEOPLE here, mind you.

Re: Looks like this is my next project: Razor RSF650

Intermission. Dang, totally missed there was already a rear shock. It looks like nice wheels and tires for 55, but isn't it just physically small? What is the new shock? I've thought this could make an interesting bike, I'd just want someone's old one cheap, not a new one. But maybe I could put the ...

Re: Looks like this is my next project: Razor RSF650

Let's see how much I can write before the string ensemble starts. Razor parts are way interchangable, my mx650 forks are bound to fit your bike and you'll have front shocks. What a kind and caring company to do that for us, right? When I over volted my mx 12mph 650's they went maybe 3mph faster. Was...

Re: scorpion fx

Oversteer? They're expecting that you'd shift a lot of weight backward? I think the guy might just be guessing. The faster you're going the more serious oversteer would be, but my understanding of tadpoles is they tend to understeer, so this would be quite a reversal. He might be thinking that it wo...

No, that wealth would be AVERAGE. Such as if everyone worked as hard to get the rare earth metals from the ocean floor they'd have about the same amount, right? https://www.cbsnews.com/news/rare-earth-elements-u-s-on-sidelines-in-race-for-metals-sitting-on-ocean-floor-60-minutes-60-minutes-2019-11-17/

Re: scorpion fx

Not to disagree with what he's saying but since they do make the configuration you want it might go without problem. My first thought is you should figure out if the Scorpion 2 swingarm will fit. Picture won't prove it does but you might be more or less confident after a look. I'd say if you're pluc...

Re: The future of our forum - facebook versus web forums

My thoughts are on the value of podcasts. Spotify is certainly a LESS obvious site for podcasts than ES. I don't see why that's hard to understand.

Umm, you don't think podcasts are relevant? Then YOU are one of the people I'm aiming the article at.
