How Scooters Ruined Shakotoms Life


Recommended Posts

Looks like Ive got something else to learn about now....

Just picked this up this afternoon




Its a 1986 Suzuki FA50








I know bugger all about scooters or two stroke stuff really, but have bought it mainly for commuting to work on.

But after reading all the scooter gang threads on here, I donned my  denim vest I purchased a while ago and spent this afternoon terrorizing my 'hood




Its pretty sweet and runs well.

missing a couple of lenses, and needs indicators, brake light and horn hooked up.


Just want to get some new tires as the fronts a bit perished.

Heck yes! Welcome to smelling like two-stroke all the time.

I've just had my Yamaha V50 put back together and am trying to get it up here from Chch.

Will have to go for a ride sometime! 



Oh geez, I will donate real money to the "GuyWithAviators is gonna ride his V50 from CHCH to AKLD and take pics and write about the trip" fund !!

Ah also have to sort speedo

Works sweet up to like 20kmh then all of a sudden spins off the clock


Sounds like you doing rolling skids with all that powah puhuhuhuhu.

I sold my 4 stroke bike today so can now work on my 2 stroke ringading. Keen for a cruise etc.


Also this thing is lush. Feel free to terrorise my culdesac too. It could do with a bit of that. Locals getting too complacent etc.
