Here's me and my moped at the "Lanai Lookout" on my way around to "Sherwood Forest" in Waimanalo for a get together! Talk about being loaded down. Two cases of bottled water, lots of snacks and prizes for the games we played, and...

hi this is sansei and a while ago,i came back from my friend's moped shop in kapahulu and they did a 6 month checkup and it only cost's me$60.00 plus oil and they shared with me that i need a new airbox which is connected to the moped and then i need new backbrake's which wouldnt cost me to much so maybe at the end of this month,i'll make one more appointment and then have them replace these two new thing's and my moped will run like new so i thought to share this with everyone.

hi this is sansei and in response to madrussian,i learned where the airbox is located and it's on the side where on a sym moped,it's next to the kickstand and it's the blackbox where it cover's like the pulley inside and the rubberpulley inside is rubber so if you go to yahoo and put in moped airbox and look under peugot airbox,you'll find what im sharing on this is about.

So sansei are you grounded? Sorry it will take so long for you to get your moped back. On the other hand, you will be saving on gas for a while!

hi this is sansei and today at the time of 5:30 pm,i just returned from my friend's moped shop in Kapahulu and since i came in early without an appointment,i waited until 5:00 Pm until they somewhat put together my moped and then the mechanic, who took a look and found that my Moped,.

Need's new gear's and new bearing's from the front wheel and back wheel and then my friend would charge me of $300.00 so soon when i make my apponitment,i wont wait to long so when i have these changed,my moped will run way better and they suggested for me to put one chain lock in my trunk and one under the seat so it wouldnt weigh to heavily so i can put my helmet under my seat so i thought to share this with everyone.

hi this is sansei and since my previous visit to my friends moped shop,when i went,i learned i need new gear's and new front and back wheel bearing's and hopefully all of what i need will come in and my friend who own's the shop will call me and re-arrange my schedule and then i'll visit his shop when he shares with me when to come and when i return after my moped is done,i'll post the result's here.

it was shared with me not to leave heavy lock's with in the moped and that i can only use my light lock unless i need the heavy lock and then i take out my light lock so i thought to share this with everyone.

well thank's for your time

This is good news Sansei. I am happy you are pleased with the work on your moped and it runs well now. Now, use that moped to go vote for the candidate of your choice, which I think is McPalin. I wish that more people in Hawai'i used a moped like you do. By the way, did you know know that John McCain owns something like 8 or 9 automobiles and Obama owns just one for his whole family? I think they should both ride mopeds like you do! Can you imagine a President of the United States riding a moped? I think it would be onolicious!

Talking Re: Menehune Man's New Ride!

Last week I blew up my moped!
The bearings on the connecting rod (between crankshaft and piston) shattered. Destroying my motor.
So, instead of just rebuilding it...

I had a brand new stock 100cc motor installed.
Got it back today and it's "Oh sooo nice".
Quiet with a lot more power.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN...

Did you really want to tell us about how you're breaking the law? I'm not sure that's a very good idea.
