My favorite Motobecane variated moped racers. It’d be exiting to watch those 3 riders battle it out in a world cup motobecane race!

Tomahawk Motobecane 50cc air cooled race moped.
I won’t bring or race my Peugeot 50cc h2o moped to have more time to enjoy the races, bring some footage and help with the organization but Ryan a local racer will be racing my Motobecane 50cc air cooled moped.
Here’s the latest video:
The Tomahawk shop in Filipino town is done.
My back is sore but it was worth it. It’s a nice little nest to build custom bikes, repair and restore mopeds. We’ve got the tools, the bikes, now we just need to hang a photo of a moped babe to make it a ligit shop.
It’s party time tonight Friday night at 7:30pm. Come and hang out with us. Honest Mike from Scoot TV will be there to cover the event. I saved plenty of room on the red doors for his stickers, yeah!
Next Monday I’m finally back to fixing mopeds, I can’t wait. We’re gonna build some amazing bikes there and we’ll happily serve the LA moped community.
Thanks everybody for coming, it was really fun. We’ll try to throw more moped parties in the future.
Video by Honest Mike – Scoot TV Show. Thx dude, that was fast editing!
I got these 3 Peugeot tanks on ebay France a while ago.
Apparently the 2 gold ones come from the Peugeot TSA (around 1975) and the red from the Peugeot BB3 (around 1970).
I’m thinking about using them later with a cobra or custom frame. -cn
We officially released the beast at Casey’s garage August 7, 2010.
Congrats Casey ! And welcome to the Tomahawk tribe.
Many thanks to you and John for the awesome photos.
Toecutter first start:
- Old Bidalot 50cc air cooled VS new Bidalot 50cc liquid cooled
Here’s the new engine set up for my Peugeot RCX race bike , ( ported and assembled in France by my friend Remi expert in 50cc variated race bike at http://www.karaokeman92.skyrock.com ) :
Bidalot 50cc H20
Bosch electric pump + large volume radiator
Bidalot vintage exhaust ball joint with ring ( Remi’s treasure chest )
Malossi cases + 360 degree rubber intake
Dell ‘orto 21 or 25 carburetor
Bidalot G2 replica exhaust modified length
Bidalot variator 100mm
Bidalot engine spring rubber mounted
Giraudo clutch plulley
Gearing 11 x 68…..74
On paper it should be way faster than my very old engine that i could never get in the high rpm zone anyway. I can’t wait to test that new engine on the track !
Grange’ motor circuit would be fun. I wish we could start our own race here in Southern California next year.
The birth of that new Peugeot almost brought tears to my eyes !
Still tuning the carb, variator, engine spring and gearing…
Sorry, I had to ride to the Hollywood sign again… it’s becoming a ritual for every new bike I build.
Casey, gear up ! If everything goes well, I’m planning on delivering this weekend. – cn
