Oh man! That’s awesome!

So, is your “shop” right next to your bed? That’s hardcore...but totally get it. I lived in NYC in my early 20’s and used to use a GoPed to get around a lot. Lucky to be alive to be honest but I had to do more then a few repairs on my coffee table. I’ll never forget the look on my friends face when he walked in to find me mid way through a rebuild. He had NO idea what was going on. Haha

Wait!! Maybe you can make a table out of the yellow plastics!?? Cut and finish a piece of wood or metal to fit the cavity inside perfectly. Now THAT would be a great conversation piece!

So because I've been stationed in Japan without my wife (thanks, Army) I was put in the barracks. I'm fortunate to have the room to myself because of my rank, some people are TWO to a room this exact size. For the last 7 years I have been building, restoring, and well whatever else I want in my small closet sized rooms. Not going to let lack of space stand between me and my hobbies. I've had leadership come into my room and ask what I'm doing, "Don't worry, I'll clean it up", is generally my response.

My garage in my new home will be 2x the size of my living space for the last 7 years. It hasn't sunk in yet. There is so much room for activities!

Just added another zero onto my $300 basket case. I didn't put in gas or oil and try to fire it up because I have to drain it all for shipping in 3 days but I'm confident it'll work when the time comes. Yes, I have new decals for the top cover, just too lazy to do them right now :D



Oh and here is the banana mobile. I picked it up cheap because it wouldn't start, gas wasn't getting to the carb. Pulled the tank and the petcock is missing it's filter/screen and it was completely gummed up. A blast of carb cleaner and it fired right up. I'll buy a new petcock to be on the safe side.



And here is ole great white, the whole family.

It was fun for sure. I'll try to get stationed out here again but it'll be difficult while I'm still in. Easier if I get out and get a government job.

Happy travels going home.

I posted a bigger monkey in the monkey/gorilla thread. Maybe you have seen one of those before. ;)

Just got the notification that the bikes are all due to arrive 23 NOV! I'll be sure to update this a bit when they arrive.

Regarding the Motocompo - I've been reading and seeing a lot of posts of guys running QR50 carbs and it being a night and day difference on their bikes. So naturally I picked one up and it'll be here before the bikes. I'm excited to see if it really makes a difference like they say. If it does, I'll probably buy two more so each one has one.

The gang is all here! Haven't had time to start up anything or mess with the bikes. The white one leaked a ton of oil from somewhere and the yellow one had the kickstand feet punch through the bottom of the box and get bent, so that's odd.

Happy to have everything here. I plan to put my 108 motor into the Baja at some point, so I'll keep you all updated when that comes. Since this also turned into a Motocompo thread as well, I got some custom tail lights and a QR50 carb for probably the white bike! So that'll be fun.

The motocompos look so funny sitting there. If you didn’t know what they were it would be a real brain scratcher.
