Success

The Magnum80 is running now. Cruised around today for about 30 miles, working on setting the rings, it's starting to idle nicely, so that is a good indicator they are settling in. I still haven't wound it out, but it has torque, which is what I want. I've got a 19mm PHBG on it instead of the 21 that most people go with. This bike has basically been built very superficially. I wanted a Metra80 because that cylinder is perhaps the best looking one. I ditched the Estoril for an 8p because of it's sexy black lines and its sweet exhaust note. The bike sounds good, I'm excited to be riding a moped again that has some power to get out of its own way. I'll be shortly putting one of those new-fangled Hero-Puch CDI's on this bike, and get out your ear plugs, with that 12v of power, she will have one loud horn. I'll snap a few pics tomorrow.

By the way, WB2 was a riot, a great time, nice to meet some new friends and catch up with old ones. Rally rally rally, everyone.
