Hello everybody, listed here’s a 66cc motorized 1983 RBC tandem bicycle from Sun City, AZ. This used to be a project bike I built in my spare time during the last year. Now that I’ve perfected it and had a good time riding it, it is time to sell it and move on to a new project. I will list what I’ve done to make it look and run good:
*Entire frame used to be sanded down, repainted and clearcoated.
*Wiped clean and regreased bearings on wheels, derailleur, bottom bracket and steering fork.
*Wired together and soldered all spokes at cross points for extra strength.
*Both wheels have double rim strips, thorn resistant tubes and Mr. Tuffy tire liners.
*Upgraded brake levers to heavy duty, adjustable Shimano grips.
*Each single bicycle bolt used to be got rid of and reassembled the usage of blue Loctite.
*Grubee Skyhawk GT5A 66cc engine has better quality workmanship and hardware than the typical Chinese 2-stroke; still, I completely disassembled the engine (apart from for splitting the cases), checked for burrs and imperfections, and reassembled engine, the usage of blue Loctite, grease and anti snatch compound where needed.
*Rear pedals were got rid of in order that rear passenger couldn’t interfere with pedaling when starting after a full stop. Footpegs will have to be easy to install will have to you wish to have them.
*Broke engine in properly for 40 miles the usage of petroleum based 2-stroke oil at a 20:1 mix. Now you’ll run it at 40:1 the usage of full synthetic oil.
This bike runs great. The long wheelbase assists in keeping the handling smooth and steady at all speeds. It has numerous low end power for steep hills, and runs sweet with very little vibration at 30-35 mph.
I’m asking $425 for the bike. I’ve $600 total into it, and wish to sell it soon to move onto other things. Text me with any thoughtful questions you’ll have, and I will answer them as best as I will be able to. We will be able to converse by phone call if you end up in a position to come over. Losers and dirtbags – you already know who you’re – don’t waste my time. To everybody else, thank you for having a look, and have a good day. Jeff K.
