Jeebers man, sorry to hear about your tools... I've really enjoyed seeing your builds. If you're anything like me you'll just keep building anyway with whatever you can find lying around.
Adjustable spanner? check!
Screwdriver? check!

Arty Dave, it really was a very hard blow. :(
I believe that next week I will be able to buy some tools and continue on some project

even with some difficulties ... front wheel and tire honda super cub. some adjustments will be necessary but there will be few. the wheel is a little bigger and the tires wider. but as I have the triangle loose it will help me adjust everything

frame adjustment to accommodate the new larger and wider tire.


the frame was enlarged by 3 cm.

the fender supports had to rise 2.5cm

Did you slide a heavy tube over the chainstays to bend each one, or something else? The tack welds don't look like they can hold a spreader tool. Are the frame tubing walls on the thick side, or not so? And what did you do to make the bend by the fender lip?

The moped rim and tire look:cool2:

when I found this frame he had the triangle bars loose at these points, it helped me a lot in the adjustments

the lip of the fender was a little curved originally, I only slightly increased the fold with the pliers.

That fork looks very much like one off an early Honda mini trail. Nice work. Glad to hear you’re back at it.
