During the awesome 20% off sale 1977mopeds and treats had over labor day I picked up a bunch of new toy filled easter eggs. The thing I’m most excited about it this Peugeot 50cc Racey kit. I decided I wanted to throw a kit on my pug, I didn’t want to get too crazy and go liquid cooled, clutch pulleys or anything like that. Just going for a cheap fun modest build, something similar to throwing a kstar with a circuit pipe on a Puch e50.
I put up a thread on moped army asking what people thought about it, but I didn’t really hear anything. So I figured I’d throw a little review together with my first impressions.
On 1977’s site they recommend the simonini circuit pipe with this kit which is priced the same as the kit at $99 dollars. Since I only have screw style Peugeot mounted pipes at present I picked one of those up too. Not a whole lot I can say about the pipe until I run it, but the construction seems very solid. There’s no ball joint or swing arm mounts to mess with, it just mounts up like a stock pipe. There was a restrictor right in the top of the header, but it was just held in with a tack weld and was easily removed with a dremel.
Here’s the start of the review I figured I’d do one with my first impressions during assembly then I’ll do another once I get it running.
