This is a Tomos TX-50 mini bike. It uses the same 49cc A35 engine and 2 speed automatic transmission as other Tomos mopeds except it has a kick starter instead of pedals. I'm not sure if it's an Eastern Bloc vehicle or not since it was built in Slovenia in 1999 from mostly Slovenian, Serbian and Italian made parts.
It was given to me by a co-worker. It did not run and was abused. Tank, fuel filter and carb were packed full of rust. I eventually had to replace the fuel tank. Air cleaner is a K&N crankcase breather.
I installed new brake cables (from a bicycle kit) which were seized. I had a local motorcycle shop fabricate a new and longer throttle cable. The original one was also seized. I extended the handlebars using water pipe and longer bolts to clear my knees.
I installed a heavier shock. Headlight and a universal voltage regulator.
Loads of fun!
I'd like to install an 80cc or larger kit one of these days but I might as well just buy a bigger bike for that kind of money.

I have received a lot of messages asking about the future of the forums once my car sells. Well today it sold and will soon be on its way to its new home. With that said, for the forums, there is more information under 'Announcements" titled "Future of the Forums' you could also copy and paste this link: http://www.trabantforums.com/threads/future-of-the-forums-donations.1762/
