  1. This one looks okay too... Classic lines.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 awesome! Its butter smooth to ride, actually handles like a dream. Seriously impressed with it.
  4. 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.
  5. 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???
  6. 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.
  7. @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.
  8. Hell yeah! Such a tidy job all round looks great.
  9. 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.
  10. 50cc or 150cc...same, same. Picking up tomorrow...yes!!!
  11. Dam it, I've gotta go to Auckland. Was keen af new toy to bring Brommmm brrrroommm!!!
  12. Whats ceacklelackingling this month? Anything happening? When? More questions than answers...
  13. Looking good. Cool project, keep up the updates please.
  14. I'm always blown away by how far out tbe ports etc can be from "matching". Simple blueprinting can make these little motors so much snappier and responsive.
  15. Seal imports? I always seem to find something that'll work, or can be made to work from those guys.
  16. Funny...we both posted above at same time. I'm of the opinion these are just slow motors, after doing a lot of geeking out online. Best way to go fast is do what everyone said to do at the start and find a Yamaha Jog motor. I didn't understand how scooters bolted together back then, now ivd had them apart a fee times, I can see it's not a big deal to do. Just keeping an eye out now for a crashed one.
  17. Nope. I'm not sure how this one works, but it has chain driven gears that somehow gives it 2 speeds? *Image stolen off the internet.
  18. Pic to sum up the last couple hours... #blackwheelsmatter Plus while apart, I cleaned out all the grease inside the brake drums with brake cleaner, then sanded everything to freshen it up. Brakes now work good. Success!!! Ending the day on a time now.
  19. Cool. I'll get back to you at some stage, may take a week as I'm about done with scooters this weekend. Thanks
  20. And just so the Yamaha doesn't feel left out. It handled the 12km trip with ease. However I think I could probably walk faster up some of the bigger hills? And then downhill it hits some kind of limiter at 55km/hr and just won't push through it. Feels electrical like a speed limiter on the coil? Not sure? But the honda does 70+++ downhill, its right off the speedo.
