Well i decided i wasnt gunna be cool enough with the Dio nifty, and my CT110 compared to the rest on the penny pinches clan on C50s, so when a pretty rough one came up for $100 i jumped on it. As i picked it up - mostly complete except once side cover (new ones on their way) and a buggered legsheild (will get a new one). Shes an early 1969 model, still has MPH on the speedo. I have already written a letter to transport new zealand requesting to keep the black plate when i re register it. Plans at this stage are - keep the glorious patina, maybe a nice hard cut and rub on some marine wax to preserve -Ct110 rims (slightly wider) painted black, with black hubs and new chrome spokes - get rid of front guard and slight trim / strip of rear guard - nice new single seat -nice new leg sheild and side covers -bar adapter with risers and black bars -gpx 140cc engine for max wheelies - will probably find some nice small indicators and ideally want to run an old patina headlight and tailight, taillight mounted off bottom of rear shock along with black plate on its side. hopefully i dont get distracted / doesnt take me forever to do Im calling on this thing here for inspiration, except with patina / i dont like the straight bars or twin headlights
Ring-a-ding-ding.... Holy 2 Smokes! 196* Suzuki B100p - which is actually a 120cc two-smoke four speed with self-mixing oil - which is what the 'P' is for, Last ridden in 1980 (legally) and ready for a refresh when time permits. Poured in some fuel, watched the fuel hose & tap leak and ignored it. Three kicks and she started. LOTS of beautiful smoke. Pumped up the tires and gingerly took her for a spin. Seems OK - shocks are softish (to be expected) and the brakes could probably do with some attention. Gearbox seal is weeping so a new seal (tube of silicone) and some 20W/40 will also be on the shopping list. Otherwise moth-ridden surface rusted originality. Long term would like to get her registered for Oldschool scooter / bike runs. Good times.
