Athena hobbit

I havent posted since July. well, i moved across the country. i live in San Anselmo, CA now. nobody here rides mopeds. nbd. 

It doesnt look like much yet, but its getting close to being done. Athena, hpi, oko24, dio reeds, devin pipe. streetmate front end. 
The tank is off, but it looks cleann. Pics at a later date I took the puffy seat foam off i might chop some foam and put it back or do some thin racerfoam.com stuff
I had to sand off a few mm from the stator plate to get the flywheel to seat without rubbing. Also I took care of the head myself using sand paper and a tennis ball. I think its called the crazy wayne trick. it worked great. no performance reports yet but it looks cool. next time i take apart the top end ill take a pic of the handy work.

This pipe is sickk. its the devin special. more stages than peoples pipe. I bought it december 2011. this project is moving slow

mlm intake, metric reed adapter. dio reeds in therr

plenty of room for clearance. im excited to try oko. ive heard only love and hate stories. I have faith. Power jets is a good idea. 

Lastly, here is the first bike i ever owned. i got this for my 13th bday. 1979 honda z50. it still ripps. 2stroke is way faster than 4.
