  1. I've mostly just been using it for well any excuse to ride it. The amount of shit I can fit in the glovebox never gets old for me. Da da dada dada da da da.... And my hat and sun glasses snuck in there too. disclaimer: ***No pastries were harmed in the making of this transportation photo*** Then I gave it a service, changed out the gear oil for spec found online (first line GL4). Someone put a lot of effort into writing this, so I blindly followed their advice. The oil still looked okay. Not just done yesterday, but luckily not last done 10 years ago either. So it was mostly a feel good exercise - just nice to know its had a charmed life of pampered services where someone cared about it. I will continue with this love.
  2. I got 2 coffees home, 10km from town like this. Well one dropped off to wife on the way. Didn't spill a drop! Did 120kph downhill...it loves it!
  3. This arrived today. Just need some snifter green paint to make it match...
  4. I did wonder that. But I just ran my wife down the road and asked her that same question. She reckons its fine, in fact initially she held onto the bar, then decided to just hold on to me like normal as it felt more natural.
  5. Im loving this seat. The springs are sweet...it squats down as you excellerate, so forgiving and super comfortable. I made a slight mistake by applying some armorall to shine it up...but that just ended up making it very slippery. I've done my best to try remove the "slipperyness" and its certainly not as bad as it was. Lesson learned. Ive ordered a brown leather cover set to replace the black covers. Should look lush! I don't hate the black, it looks sweet...but im keen to try brown? #brownseatsmatter
  6. Double seats...yeah buddy! So stoked to pick these up. Really transforms the look for less than 5 minutes work.
  7. Thats my old trike, I just put that up in case anyone was curious what they go like. This new one isn't finished yet, but should go faster with the cvt. Though I haven't fully figured out the gear ratios yet. Think ill just send it and see, then change it if I have to? That logic has worked out for me most of my life.
  8. I've got a lathe you're welcome to use it if that helps?
  9. This one looks okay too... Classic lines.
  10. Yeah, removing it was a serious intention. But yes, its like a Tarsus in there. I reckon you'd get a 2L of coke or milk in there. Another trip to town and ill find out. I keep googling cool vespas but the ones I really want are stupid money. The (1948 - 1950) model 98 are seriously cool. But like €65000 or something like that. Think I'd rather have a dodge challenger if I had to make a choice on what to spend my imaginary money on.
  11. Did my usual testing track run down to the gas station. Found a use for the glovebox. Does 100kph on the straights, if you assume the racing position. 120kph downhill...so awesome! Its butter smooth to ride, actually handles like a dream. Seriously impressed with it.
  12. Look at the size difference! Took it for a ride late last night, its so fast compared to my other two scooters. Easily sits at 80-90kph. It corners surprisingly well too. Can't wait to ride it today and get used to it under better conditions.
  13. Its just a mockup, but I've accumulated enough parts to pretty much get it done. Going to try a cvt on this one. I've never used a cvt on a trike yet, but I think I may be on to a good thing. Time will tell???
  14. Okay, I've got a crush on this paint job. And the double seat. It really transforms the look. So.... I agreed to buy this one. I'll get it redone in brown leather. Ummm eventually...when I can afford to, aka I'm broke arse again after buying this shit. But hey, a future project for me to start obsessing over.
  15. @cletus roughly what ballpark number will the under side blasting and painting cost? Its on my should get it done, but other things come up I want more list.
  16. Hell yeah! Such a tidy job all round looks great.
  17. I take back any and all derogatory comments I've ever made or implied regarding vans, and any suggested links to pedophilia. Cheers Mike...legend! Scooter safely getting transportation in the luxurious comfort of a sexy van of fine distinction.
  18. 50cc or 150cc...same, same. Picking up tomorrow...yes!!!
  19. Dam it, I've gotta go to Auckland. Was keen af new toy to bring Brommmm brrrroommm!!!
