I came home tonight and found this rad beast in my garage. Its a magnum thats been modded to hold a huge battery pack and electric motor. All the moped elements are there (pedals, MikeThomas disk, freespirit seat, 5 stars) and it look sick. I guess it belongs to one a friend of my roommate, but they left and its past my bedtime, so the specifics will have to wait until my next encounter. In anycase though, wow!



nick made tri-tip ($2 a pound vs. $4 for ground beef), and we made another pie. The berries were a bit more ripe, and I made more crust so I wouldn’t have to crappily weave it. Jon Kho added more sugar and we rounded it off with some vanilla ice cream. 10000x better than the last one.

Tony liked it a lot so he liked everyone’s plate cream as well as the tin.

Next I decided I wanted to build a new bike (never mind all my broken bikes and far-off projects). It’s Freespirit mixed with the beautiful c5/laguna tank. The freespirit seat pan fits the lines of the tank beautifully, so time to get custom. Lower the seat, put on a bar, build holders and weld it all up. Mockup with wood is best.

I didn’t know what size shocks were in stock, so each potential length was marked. 370s in stock, so less custom work required.

Sean did a good job welding it. Not 100% pro-status, but certainly better than I could do. Its not going anywhere. Some more mods in store, as well as a motor build, pipe mod, fork swap, wheels fixing and probably other stuff I’m forgetting right now. It’ll be done by the end of the weekend.

Motor is gonna be a bit boring. 65 hero kit, 19 phbg, selettra, 75cc derbi zen all on my kickstart e50. I want to ktm clutch it eventually and put a better cylinder on. It should be a torque monster.
