Further, torque transmission is carried out also with chains connecting the sprockets of the intermediate shaft with the sprockets of the wheels (from the rear transmission scooter “Electron”).
Here, on the free end of the intermediate shaft, mounted disc brake. Preload the brake pads to the disc, manual, cable. Brake also used as Parking with a separate driven lever located between the seats.
The wheel turns with the engine when rotating the rack the steering mechanism through the tie rod and control arm, welded to the rack. The steering mechanism is attached to the crossmember of the frame with three bolts. For greater rigidity in the upper part of the steering shaft is installed sleeve, attached to the base of the instrument panel through the rubber cushion.
The steering wheel is made with one knitting needle, bent in such a way that it springs under axial displacement of the wheel, for of risk of injury at. Under it is a gear shift lever associated with the mechanism providing the switching speeds independent of the rotation of the engine.
1 — engine, 2 — swivel stand, 3 — joint rod end, 4 — absorber, 5 — clip disc brakes, 6 — oscillating arm suspension 7 — wheel 8 to the sprocket wheel shaft, 9 — the big sprocket of the intermediate shaft 10 — small sprocket of the intermediate shaft 11 is suspended a star !2 — output shaft of the engine, 13 — carburetor, 14 — disc brakes, 15 — muffler, 16 — frame vehicle.
Another was the muffler. In comparison with the standard it has a smaller length, but larger diameter and consists of not one, but three series-connected spherical cameras. The exhaust gases pass through the perforated conical nozzle.
Now about the external design of the car and the cab. All devices external lighting and alarm systems, with the exception of the brake light, attached, installed on the racks separately from each other and do not extend beyond the dimensions of the car.
Special made also the instrument panel. It is formed by two elements: base closes the front part of the cabin together with the steering shaft, and block devices in the case of the oval form, mounted on the top slanted wall of the base. The latter resembles the box with edges beveled in the direction of the steering column to the periphery, which provides a more convenient entry and exit from the cabin. The panel color is black. For the allocation of the control devices on the flap has a stripe of Burgundy. In the same color painted all handles under the steering wheel.
Tests showed that the car has sufficient acceleration performance, stability and maneuverability, which is especially important when driving in the city. Maximum speed at full load was about 90 km/h.
