This is the one that you previously posted that you took apart and now need to reassemble right? What do you mean by "tore it all down"?

Why did you tear it apart?

I asked in that thread if you bagged and tagged everything, but you didn't respond

Most people are willing to help another scooterist but it's a give and take kind of thing. It's going to be tough to find someone to volunteer to put it back together for free...especially when they didn't help take it apart.

No I didn't bag & tag. I have motor in it, wiring harness needs to be re-ran, no tires on it. Just wanting to have someone help re-assemble. Willing to pay - just don't know who/where to contact the help. Any suggestions?

You *may* need to take the motor back out to run the wiring harness. I've always found it easier to run the harness first, prior to installing any parts.

If you didn't bag and tag, I'm hoping you separated out all the nuts and bolts somehow, with their appropriate sub-assemblies? I've done a few rebuilds, but It would be difficult for me to remember where all the similar but different sized nuts, washers and bolts go, with the exception of some that are obvious.

Since you are willing to pay, it probably is a good idea to take it to a reputable shop and have them do it. That way they can check everything over and make sure you have a road-worthy scoot.
