So jealous.
Also - bit confused.
Did one of the daughters get detention and have to write Danny Divito's name 100 times on the glass?

But mostly - just jealous.

Oh wow. Things just got serious!

Does the scooter still fit in there?

Something to do with some weird meme type thing going around their school. They didn’t even know who a Danny Divito was or (as you can see) how to actually spell his name. Don’t worry - I schooled them on both. My daughter also thought it was hilarious to write “poo bum” in black marker on the door to my shed right after I finished doing it up...

Totally. It is a pretty compact unit (~1.2m) - the bench was still covered in all the crap used to beat the guard and other frame work stuff.

I had to disassemble it to move it. Despite that the lathe bed alone is right on the limit of what I can lift by myself. My back hates me right now.

I’ve been looking for a (not Chinese/Taiwanese) bench top lathe for ages. Missed out on a slightly smaller but newer one recently (no milling unit). There is a following for lathes similar to Vespas... so gotta hunt hard to get one. Stoked to get a milling unit.

Pheas, Nice!!!

And I got this. An Italian low tail light Cosa 200. Yeah, I know, it's ugly and not considered a proper Vespa but I have some really nice plans for the winter. And it was a steal, complete with papers for only 150€...

This makes my dream of getting myself an old Bridgeport look pretty reasonable by comparison.

BC I need more scooter heartache, confusion, and floundering in my life... I bought a Lambretta. In my head, just as I typed that, I heard Red Foreman say - "Dumbass."

Luckily, it looks to be restored in pretty proper fashion. Nice 62 Li125 with a 150 top end done during the recent rebuild.

Be fun to ride around on while I finish up the VNB.

Looks pretty spiffy, congratulations. One of those deals you couldn't say no I bet.

I must say that I do like the color combination!


Was this panel prerumpled for you or is it just the photo?

I believe that rumple is just the photo.
Saw a before paint pic and the cowl looked straight.

Very excited about the Voodoo color. We need to start a gang. Egg-go SC

Why isn’t it considered ‘proper’? Twist grip 4-speed 2-stoke right? Basically a PX200 motor?

Sounds legit to me. And at that price...

What’s the plan?

got a package in the mail from SIP. 4 days from order to delivery by UPS. Took 3 months for packages by DHL/USPS.

It's always random, I've found. My last SIP order via Fedex took something like three weeks while it took a long touring vacation around Germany.

I've had it take under a week, usually if I order over the weekend and pay the surcharge for priorty picking, I'll get it by Friday night, but ordering has been a shit show all year, because 2020.

I'm going to guess that is a good deal.

My SIP orders always get held up by U.S. customs. Always.

That'll teach ya' to live in Wisconsin

I'm hoping that being 3 hours from Memphis will shorten my FedEx delivery times by a day. We'll see.

Good eye. little dent at the back was worse in person. Scoot Arrived today and the rumple is substantial enough to affect removing the panel.
