woohoo! finally hopped on the moped for a quick ride over to the tunney’s to celebrate little luella’s 1 year birthday!

had to adjust a few things though (and sadly, someone stole my puch odometer, but i guess it looks pretty awesome still). johnny helped fix my front brake and i fixed the idling issue.

the thing about mopeds is that they’re unpredictable. you never know if its gonna stall out or why it won’t start. that’s why having a proper tool kit at all times is a must. other than that, they’re fairly easy to┬ádiagnose.

made it to the house and joey pep got there the same time – he took a spin too hahaha – he’s like a pro!

then we headed to the backyard where the grill was already going with burgers, skewers of awesomeness and sweets galore (there were a lot of kiddies around!) so cute!

the bday girl and her momma!

ADORABLE!

i love this photo…

moped update! i had bradley over at orphange mopeds hook my bike up with a few new things: i got it lowered, put a new kit on it to keep up with cars now, got some new pedals, new wheels, new handlebars, new muffler and a new kick stand. now if only i can make it more environmentally sound…

its been several months, but owning a moped is proving to be quite a handful – especially an unregistered moped. i have a lot of things to take care of before i can really ride this thing around safely and legally. so please bear with me =)

here’s a pic bradley sent me of my newly lowered bike:

moped adventures…

I finally finished putting the parts together and the bf helped me bring it to the Orphanage to make sure it was all set up and ready to go. They let me know that the one piece was all dirty so that’s why it wasn’t running (although, I have to be honest, John and I never even made an attempt to start is bahahahha).

Not only will they be helping me to get it up and running, but I’m changing a few things like the bars and getting new tires.

I had no idea how to get the exhaust on… so I left it off to let the Orphanage fix it hahahah!

Let’s just say he’s not going any faster than I can walk – the tires were all flat.

Should be up and running by the end of this week! Yay!!!

finally! my moped is here!

now… to start assembling the rest of the parts… should be interesting lol!

a few updates i’ll be making to my bike (with the help of the orphanage guys):

  • get lower handle bars
  • drop the whole bike – shorter fork and back shocks
  • kit it up – new carburetor and exhaust pipe (and stuff like that)
