    There is quite a lot of these in France, they look rad, 75cc version would be great

    oh man, I think the wajax had something like a 12mm carb on it, and i thought a 19mm carb was almost too big. LOL at 28mm being a good size

    Spending 10 minutes with some rubber doesn't sound so bad now eh. Actually just thinking about it, using part of a seatbelt would probably work really well

    Thats basically what I tried before, but it moves too much for the thick stuff to be flexible long term I have also never seen one of those things for sale, they are just always crusty when you look under cars

    hey man, I made a new handbrake cable holder thingy for my escort. First I tried making one out of a thick bit of rubber, but if fell apart quick as the rubber wasn't flexible enough, so new one is made from 3 or 4 layers or thin rubber, Its been on the car for a few years now and its sweet as. Got the rubber from para rubber from memory

    after looking at cars to buy in USA, there is no way I would buy a repaired or body modified car from the states. We looked at some hydro'd cars, holy shit that stuff was crazy. One guy told us he thought the car would break apart above 100kph as he was trying to sell us the car in 'good condition, just needs a little TLC'

    you should also ring up rarespares and tell them what wallies they are. Bad repro parts are such a pain in the arse
  11. Kimjon's resurrection of Pete's wajax velo bike

    awesome man, whats the speed like? From memory, when I had it as a 2 speed setup, I got it up to around 65-70kph how is the engine running with the new carb? It should rev to about 9000rpm. When I first had it, it would get up there, but as things broke it started to have a break down in ignition

    good luck welding fuel tank back together, will be a good test of welding skills
