Looking nice Diane!

How happy are you with Pirate Uphosltery? I'm thinking of lowering the seat on my LX150. What material did you use?

I likes!

I like the seat. I have been imagining a new black and dark blue seat with dark blue reflective piping on the seams. I wonder if Pirate can do it? One way to find out....

Also, I am curious how you came up with the number 37. Can you share? I was considering the number myself to note the age I was when I bought the scoot. Or is there a pop culture reference there?

Lots of cats can drive, Toonces is probably the most famous.

Hi Nancy,
The black seat has gray stitching; it's made of Whisper Vinyl. I missed the Mod's vs Rockers this weekend, did you go?

Boonkers, no real significance on the number 37. I just thought it looked good.

I think all cats can drive an automatic, I don't know any that can drive a stick.

The Blue dot tri-bar is mounted to the fender crest. I filled the crest with JB weld and drilled thru, turned it 180 degress and secured with large washer and nut.

Hi Diane. Really nice.
And fine that you write under the pix what you've done and where you bought
But it seems to be some chrome around the headlight.
Can you tell more about it?
Thanks

There's no chrome around the headlight. There is black electrical tape around the top of the glass on the headlight to hinder the reflection of light on the windscreen at night. It barely shows up in the pictures.
