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.

Whitewalls?

My whitewalls come in a can, applied with a brush.  On youtube some guy made whitewalls smoother with a flapdisk on a grinder before painting but i don't really like the idea of thinning my sidewalls.

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.
