Just got me one today.. Yahooooo. I am a mini bike fanatic. For the last 10 plus years I have owned a pair of ct70's and now adding an unmolested barely used 1989 tw with 2700 miles on it. I swear I think it's never seen dirt. At least until now. Hahahhh.



Just wanted to sat hello and looking forward to many many mods. I'm the type that just faint leave things alone.



Anyone know who has the fastest shipping for parts? I need a carb rebuild kit but yet I'm sure it would be easier to buy a new carb but yet I haven't found an affordable yet.



Thanks

Kelly

I came from the same camp of minis. I had a new Chinese ct70 clone with a 90cc engine. Swapped in a 125cc and larger tires. It would run 65mph verified by GPS with my 300lbs on it. Now I'm up to the larger minis. You will love the TW! Congrats!

Welcome to the board
. I agree with Kwizard about the carb there easy enough to work on and a

great way to get started in learning how to work on your bike. As for the pic you may have to do

what i did and open a photobucket folder its free and upload your pics there and then link using the

img code it will give you. Hope that helps.

Finally........ That was like pulling teeth to get this pic on here. Once my A.D.D. Starts kickin it's just impossible for me to put up with technical difficulties



Soo. Thanks so far to all who have great advice



I got the bike to run. But it's rough. I took the carb apart the day I got it cause I bought it not running. The thing was a classic description of a varnished carb. Soooooo clogged. Now I just need to really rebuild the carb or buy a new one.

So here are the CT's



The green is a1970 that I redid about 11 years ago. I did the 125cc motor swap and paint and chrome etc.... I did the motor swap back in the day when it wasn't as common. Soo all the resources now would have been a great help but I sure didn't have any. The wiring was a nightmare.



The red is a 1974 with an original 70cc motor that runs like a time piece. I have had this one for about 6 years.
