Daves Scooter thing (The Meth Ped)

Recommended Posts

My mate has a triumph Tigress buried in a factory somewhere I gave up pestering 10 years ago to sell it to me, thanks for reminding me as hes having a hoard purge.

Will see what i can find at swap meets in summer if not.

Been looking for a 10" rim for ages this is the closest thing i could find with right combo of sprocket and disc. Will replace the knobbly with a normal scooter road tyre (once i melt it all over the concrete out back of work)

Hopefully the spokes can handle the torque.

Since ive padded out airbox as a seat ive been out on a few hoons, it handles so well i leaned it over so far the other night i bottomed out the rear of the Hardtail, taller rear tyre will move this up about 40 mm and fix the proportions, bloody keen to get it on a go kart track.

You can tie and solder the spokes where they cross each other. I've done this on my velobike as everyone said I was going to die using the wheel I chose. I soldered them...didn't die...so must be good?

If you got a body shell like that, then you'd be a wolf in sheep's clothing. It would certainly help keep unwanted attention from you...

Got my 10" wheel..... its pretty skinny i guess i can throw a wider rim on it at a later date but for now will just get it on and use it.

I need to address noise i don't really ride it much in built up areas but even when i trailer it to the middle of nowhere i either get thumbs up or sworn at. Ive always loved the oldschool as Supertrapp mufflers or even the Harris style mufflers from the 90s but im not spending $700 on either. Will probably be one of these Aliexpress knock offs if anyone has used one are they shit?

The Supertrapp style mufflers are all good, I added more baffle and took some rings out to quiet it down a bit.
