The Blow Hole makes it first full voyage!

peugeot 103 blowhole edition!So last night was epic for me and my bike. For about a year now I have been tuning, wrenching, blowing up, slipping, sliding, and so on. Finally last night the Pug made a good 20 mile ride with no problems. To date I have to thank a few people for there help with this bike.: Master tuner and all things french, Naz (Michael Mike), My friend Casey G, Dean at Seattle Mopeds for letting me use the moped shop several times to continually rebirth this bike, and special thanks to treatshq for draining my bank account! Anyway with that said the pug is really great and tons of fun to ride, It still needs some top end tuning and such but other than that it feels solid. I am running an er3 variator and a clutch pulley as well at this point so I don’t have to worry about disintegrating clutches any longer.peugeot varitator setup To date this bike has received:
Powdercoating Job 150.00
Malossi bottom end 150.00

So yup french bikes cost a lot to make fast and reliable. Lesson learned. Time to start another one! Ps this doesnt include the other 120.00 in pistons I roasted. whatever! This has been spread out over two years, so I didnt even notice the money fleeing my pocket.
