    Rusty bead breaking tool

    I apologize if someone has posted this tool before. I’ve had for nearly a year and used it a few days ago for the first time. A little pricey, but well worth it, if you’re pulling old tires off on a regular basis.

    Simple wiring for aftermarket 12v engines

    Rebuilding a Z50 K3 with used and random parts

    Z50’s are a little outside of my normal area of build projects. I typically stick with CT70 and bigger horizontal Honda’s, but this looked like a good challenge. The goal was to build a rider with as little expense as possible.

    Lifan engine swap - start to finish

    All the parts installed totaled $450. I would have swapped sprockets, if I had them. Bike does high 40’s mph with current setup. A 16/33 combo would push closer to 55mph. I chose to stay stock exhaust, but something free flowing would also increase performance. Sorry, this is a long video.

    CT70 / Lifan racer

    Took my Lifan powered CT70 to our local flat track for some Halloween shenanigans. They built a make shift moto coarse in the infield and offered 10 different classes of bike races. The mini bike class was the largest and the fan favorite.
