Riga22 progress update 12

riga-mopedas

I think this may be the last update post about it, because I’m pretty much done with it. Moped has been restored. Looks like it just rolled out of the factory :)
Last time I wrote that I fixed the electric system, wasn’t much of a hassle. This time I just did some finishing stuff.
The first thing I did was repaint the fuel tank. The white color really fits with the red body. After the paint has dried, I put a rubber tube around it. Originally there was some rubber around the joint and I didn’t have that. However I had some nice rubber tube that fit just right and looks as good.

Riga22 progress update 11

Oh boy it’s been a long time since I last posted such an update. I usually work on it when I have the time.
It turned out that the new power router and stabilizer was shit. The one I bought and was said that it is new and works, was actually not so good. It worked, yes, but barely. I didn’t know at that time and didn’t consider it to be a problem, because it was new and all. After many months of pushing it around and just trying to pinpoint the no so obvious problem, I finally gave up and brought it to the market where I buy parts from. Dudes there took a look at it and fixed the same day. They changed the stabilizer and a carburetor, now it seems to work as it should. Always starts and doesn’t need much effort to even ride it.

Riga22 progress update 9

I feel like I am taking one step forward and 2 steps back. Yesterday I went to the market, bought the parts I needed and assembled the motor. Today I tried to start it and it was fine, just that the kick-start lever started to fuck around.

Riga22 progress update 8

So last Sunday I went to the market to get something which I got – a gasket for the clutch hole and a turn-signal relay.
Latter one I haven’t used yet, but I put the gaskets in and assembled the engine to understand that it still leaks oil!! Damn.

The time has come for an update yo!
So like I said another progress update. Mainly I fixed most of the issues that came up earlier. Still need just one little part to finish the technical part and continue with electronics.

I know I said that next time I’ll write about this will be when the electronics are working – but electronics are not working… well partially.
Felt like posting a progress update because some complications came up.

Time to write another progress update, this time it isn’t very large, probably all of them weren’t, but one thing’s certain – it’s coming to an end :D and I am very happy about it too… spend lots of time and work with it and today I managed to get the engine to start… what a great feeling it was :D

So today I had more time to work on my Riga-22, since the Axe was broken and all the stomps were chopped… today I managed to paint all the remaining parts and clean some dirty parts. Tomorrow I might start assembling it all together.
