Wombles Wheels - Horrible Hyosung

Recommended Posts

Amazing just how badly a bike can go to ratshit sitting outside for a bit. My brother in laws nephew has just scrapped a three year old Aerox that had a whole 4 miles on the clock, just cos the gimp couldn't be arsed doing his theory test.

That's one of the few mopeds I've seen that looked worse than poor old Doom as found. Panels well worth having though.

 

The coil packs on all these little CDI ignition Hondas are the same - if you find you are in need I will happily wang you one in the post FOC.

 

You weren't tempted to make the owner a cheeky offer on the KC100 then? ;)

Nah, not tempted with the KC - Ive enough shite old bikes for now. 

EVERY single fastening is rusted up solid - all 4 of the footplate bolts sheared off first crack of the ratchet. the two screws fastening the back the legshields to the steel footrest supports were just a rusty blob - as it happened the rusted foot support steel was so weak it just snapped off when I pulled the plastics back.

Its now sat in the garden leaking petrol whilst I get motivated to chop the last bits up with a grinder to free off the front mudguard and rear lights - I'll chop the engine out and see if the carb can be freed off, if not I'll try and ebay it as one job lot with the log book and plate to a fellow enthusiast nutter.

But I only really bought it for the panels and lights.

Had one of those (still in the shed), they're bloody fantastic to whizz along touching 40 (just).

Watch out for the fuel tanks, i went through 3 of the buggers before i realised the way they make 'em with the crappy welding on the threaded studs means that they will always start leaking after less than 50 miles, however that could have been because my particular one was so vibratey that it could shake the tits off of Pamela Anderson. My mates one was smooth as a normal moped and i think that allowed it to go faster, maybe his engine was slightly better balanced.

Getting pulled over riding it is why i now stick to driving a car instead, the look on the coppers face was worth it though.  :mrgreen:

Oh and i used to replace brake pads every 20 miles, but that was probably because i was too cheap to buy anything more than a £4 set of pads.

 

Edit: Another thing to remember is that motorists don't expect you to be doing 40 if you're not pedaling! Me and my mate used to get cars pulling out in front of us at junctions because they would misjudge our speed.

Not exactly subtle is it...great fun potential if you've got a lot of space off the public road though...

^^^ Mostly it will be used off road.

Mostly.

There may* be the occasional jaunt along the country lanes of Borwick to the pub.

 

Horrible Hyosung back home after a spirited run through rush hour traffic. Must re-fit the mirrors at some point, but I'll use it as it is for work in the morning.
Now the brakes are working as they should its not too bad. Not great, but not too bad.

Predictably this is Foar Sayle

Its OK but giving my shoulder gyp. TBH I didnt really like it from the outset, but the shoulder pain* I get when riding this is justification enough to get rid.

Not a slouch, but a Hyosung GT250 based on an old Suzuki GS500 is never going to be a sublime riding experience. However I was nailing it like a loon this evening with  *cough" not at all legal speeds showing on the GPS, and its good with the traffic light grand prix. 12 months MOT - new battery - new chain, new sprocket,  - brakes stripped & rebuilt - new fluid. 3 Keys V5, couple of spare bits. Starts, rides, stops as it should.

Id like something small and light - not really arsed about the engine size or make etc. Or flog it as is for £600.

*Shoulder pain secondary to a fractured dislocation some 13 or so years ago - hasnt caused me issues for ages till I started to ride this daily

50cc bicycle proving to be a bit of a twat to start.

Ive chucked it in the shed for now. 

Bought a cheap grinder from eBay and Ive been having enormous fun with it - why didnt I get one years ago? Well I was having fun till the cutting disc decided it had had enough and said "fukoffff" as it whizzed past my ear

I did however remove the engine from the breaker vision. Viion now sliced up into managable small chunks and is off to the tip to go on its way to become baked bean tins.
