    Honda 4Mini Dax and Chaly builds

    Couldnt help myself and started assembling, will probably put it all together roughly to see if theres anything missing then pull it all apart again and clean/paint/use correct fastners Edit/ I didnt clarify. This is a 1982 CH50 Honda Spacy. Apparently 10x were imported by Honda in 1982 (this came with japanese import papers). It has a 49cc 4 stroke, ohc engine with 3 speed centrifugal automatic gearbox. Unfortuntely the previous owner has some issues and it ended up seizing this piston. Rather than rebuild the engine I found a replacement unit in Japan which is hopefully a runner (will find out in a couple months when the ship arrives). Other than that it appears to be mostly there and in ok condition. So will assemble, then strip down, wire wheel, paint and reassemble. Once its all running will decide if I keep this or the DJ1.

    Got a safety award in the form of a prezzy card from work, so did the only logical thing and bought bike parts. Lots of little things for the Dax to keep that ticking along and a new exhaust for the chaly (which I still havnt finished attaching the new carb too) Also drove 840kms yesterday to pick up another 80s scooter, probably THE most 80s scooter as shown by the dash However it requires some assembly......

    Still accumulating bits, 125cc Semi Auto Lifan from shore50s (even comes with a 26mm carb out of the box?), major bits left to buy are the seat, tyres rear shocks and exhaust. Once I get the tyre size and rear wheel location finalised I can make a braket to mount the rear guard as the standard location doesnt work/look good with the extended swingarm. After those bits are finalised I can pull it all apart and paint it then get it going and ride it. So still 6months away at least

    Good to see the system works! She warned me I wasnt allowed to speed on my freshly registered scooter, funny lady that one. Jokes on her, its a bare frame. I have a 125 with my name on it also for the Dax

    My ST70 turned into a ST50.... vauge is good. Rego'd my DJ1 and accidentally used the engine number as a frame number. AA lady wasnt bothered

    Slow boat arrived the other day. So here's a 4"rim with 3.00 x10 tyre vs a stock 2.75"rim with 3.50x10 And started mocking things up Its a 5cm longer swingarm, put the 4" rim on the front but will be running 3.5" front with 4" rear. Undecided on tyres as yet, probably go continental twist but unsure what size.

    Just be sure not to spend anything on the electrical side of things until you decide if you are staying 6v with an old engine or going 12v with a lifan

    Sorry for? Just rebuild the rest of the bike and worry about a motor later.
  12. Aaand just found out im on call for this weekend instead of the one after like I thought
  13. Hopefully parts arrive in time to get Chaly going as an option for this, might at least bring the DJ1 along if time allows
