Yeah, no, they're fucking horrible. Chrome bumper conversions can be done, but that's so far down the list it's not even funny.

Yes, it’s absolutely still possible as long as the bike meets the necessary criteria.

Bummer. I’ve had 4 or 5 Mobys over the years. Hands down my favorite mopeds. They’re just so..... French.

I'm sure I'll accumulate some more old bikes, they just seem to find me. Got everything I sold for cheap and not running. I just enjoy putting things back on the road. Happened to win more than I lost on those gambles and ended up not having to pay anything out of pocket for the Suzuki.

Sounds like we’re in pretty much the same boat. Blue book was $2100. I paid $2400 and still feel like I got a good deal. I’ve seen them around for mid teens, though a few years older and with quite a few more miles.

Thanks. If anything, just practicality mods. Storage rack, slightly larger front sprocket, stuff like that.

I love my CB125. Great commuter bike, and, around here at least, $600 is a steal for a runner.

LOL. Oh, and I work in a corporate headquarters. No issues with running it in my office.

It’s got a dead tube :( Need to order a replacement. My office is where I keep all my cool shit. I actually had a weekly Facebook feature detailing all the crap in there for a while.

What do you want to know? It is, as far as I can tell, Chinese. It’s surprisingly well made, though there are some parts that are epoxied, which might make repairs, if they’re ever needed, somewhat difficult. It’s easy to run, and comes fully assembled. Despite the video, it’s actually relatively quiet, making a

Very cool! I have a tube radio in my office that I replaced the capacitors in myself. Easy job, and will definitely get rid of the hum. Nothing sounds quite like a tube radio or amplifier.

Since they’re used in MRI machines and particle accelerators, they need to be as stable as possible. I’m guessing the titanium alloy is pretty non-reactive.

Yeah, that guy was my original inspiration. This one is lightly etched, just to give a little texture. I tried one etched deeper, and found the protruding titanium somewhat uncomfortable.

I know specifically where mine came from, but they’re surprisingly cheap on eBay if you wanted one.

That is super cool! I have a few of my grandfathers tools. He worked for the Virginia Electric and Power Company. It’s just a few pairs of pliers and such, but I love them enough to not use them. He had an AMAZING shop. I wish I had been old enough to take in all his tools when he passed.

Cool. I have the original tool kit for my ‘73 Honda Trail 90. The tools are definitely not ANYTHING like those, LOL.

No shame in riding it as-is while you can. I dig it! I rode my CT-90 to work on Friday, and probably will again tomorrow, and it looks exactly like it was dragged out of a barn last year after 42 years, which it was.
