Second Stroke Mopeds

Brooklyn, New York

Second Stroke Mopeds is New York City's primer moped shop. We sell new and used mopeds, service and restore vintage mopeds and offer moped repair classes.

Once in a while, something breaks.  Most of the time, in this modern world of moped hysteria, its moderately easy to find a replaceable part.  However, in this case that was not an option.  We must recreate a part!

This gives us an opportunity to redesign it as well.  For this part, we used steel instead of plastic. 

On our minty Velo Solex the decomp lever snapped.  It had been previously glued back together… but this time using the lathe to create the cylinder part, bench grinder to shape the lever and the welder to put it all together…  bam
