patiently waiting for the frame to come back from the paint shop. Need some better weather to finish painting the engine. Hope to finish repairing the seat soon. Want to see how the purple color turns out on the frame to decide what color to paint the gas tank.
Got some painting done on the HS50. Still need to do more. Been a super rainy spring around here, terrible for painting. Bought this H50 yesterday. Was told it came off A Rupp Shriners Bike. The person switched out engines to have a electric start motor. I love the chrome! It also has the lighting coil. Hopefully I’ll get my frame back from the paint shop this week so I can see if it will lineup. I’m thinking the Mini Bike is from the mid to late 60s so would have originally came with a H50. The crome recoil for it is being sent to me. Should have it later this week.
Had no spark... adjusted the magneto+points and sanded contact spots. Pulled some temporary parts from a donor engine. We got spark and she’s firing!! Hope to play with it some more tomorrow to get it tuned in. I like this engine option. Just not sure how well it’s going to fit because I don’t have the frame back yet. Hopefully get it back soon so I can see what happens..HS50 or H50
had this bad boy running good yesterday, reved-up and idled nicely! Let it sit really running for about five minutes and then no spark. Either something moved or the lighting coil is bad. If it’s a bad coil, I got a great replacement non lighting coil and fly wheel. My arm is too tired from pull starting this darn thing...not gonna mess with it any more tonight LOL
