amsterdam to the northcape with old honda 4-stroke moped's
hi, im new here on this forum, and want to let you know about my next travels in the summer of 2013.
after many travels on my thrusty old friend the honda ss50 from 1972 to several place's in europe, i found that its time to take a big leap and go further than i ever have been in europe and see if i can make it to the end of the north-side and back (and maybe in the future go south to the other cape, but that is stil in a deep dream fase).
i already made many big trips on my ss50 (witch is conferted to 70cc, to make travel a bit easy'er on me and the bike engine).
my first big trip was from stockholm to amsterdam(i got to stockholm by a old fishingboat from witch i knew the captain)about 15 years ago, green as grass about big travels and a lot of needless yunk bound to my bike with lots of cheap elastic ropes and straps i took the jump into the unknown and loved it strait away.
after that i traveled :
nord danmark- amsterdam(again by boat to danmark)
amsterdam-zweden(mora)-amsterdam 2x to friends that live there.
amsterdam-luxemburg-amsterdam 10x with a collection of about 30 honda fourstroke mopeds for a long weekend to party and drive.
amsterdam-berlin-amsterdam to party at a festival(vuuv).
this upcomming trip i invited a friend to join the fun and drive with me, instead of driving by myself, this is a big switch to my previous endevours all by myself.
he also drives a conferted honda 70cc, he drives a belgium build honda c320 1968 witch is now conferted to fit a modern ohc engine instead of the old pushrodengine.
i will soon replace my trusty old friend, the ss50 for the new love , a honda cd50 from 1970 because metal featic and a bend frame on the ss50 is not good enough anymore for these kind of travels and abuse.
im getting a new engine done by a good friend with mostly original new old stock honda parts that i colleced the last 8 years, and some new chineese bami parts that i buy from the builder(triple plate clutch, 300% oilpump), and it's nearing completion as i speak .(link to builders site) www.rzracing.nl
the bikeframe is ready for buildup and some parts are now being stuck to the frame in a slow but good fitting order, instead of lastweek weldingjobs and hurryup stickytape actions.
will update soon with pictures and progress reports on the bikebuild and travellingplans.
