Extra jdm tyte
it's a '84 Yamaha QT50 (qt...sound it out...cutie)
50cc two stroke kick start single sided swing arm shaft drive with a single speed centrifugal clutch/transmission.
It should be a moped but it doesn't have pedals so they classify it as a noped which means I have to register it and have insurance on it

I picked it up for $50, but it hadn't ran in 10+ years. put gas and oil in it, made a key and it actually fired up and ran.

So far I've:
Replaced spokes and straightened rear wheel
New tires
New seat cover
Lubed all cables
Changed the oil
New top end bored out to 60cc
Custom intake
New power intake reeds
Bigger carb
New gaskets
Stiffer clutch springs
New front fender from a Honda
New brake shoes
New rear end with taller gearing
Remove oil pump and converting to Pre-mix
Performance intake

Stock it did 25mph on flat and level ground. Once I get it back it should do about 45-50.

I'm way too into this thing :facepalm
