It needs a copper number plate like we can get here in Arizona.

That exhaust spoils a beautiful scooter. And fancier wheels would be nice.

Otherwise, stunning!

That is stunning. Now you just need another one, one to keep shiny and one to let it go green. I bet it would look gorgeous both ways.

That is really a cool looking scoot! It certainly is a eye catcher!

JK i thought the same thing. Man the chronics over here would have that thing stolen in a NY second. They once stole the cooper piping under a jodo mission temple while people were inside. You can get a lot of money when you recycle copper here. You even have to fill out paperwork to prove it's yours. Think they've stolen the copper electrical lines on the H2 freeway 2 or 3 times in the past 10yrs.

Its really excellent craftsmanship. I'd guess its copper plated rather than solid copper. Copper plating is reasonably easy for those shops that have the equipment.

5400 pounds is pretty inexpensive I thought. I presume they finished in lacquer to keep the shine. We did a copper project 15 years ago. We left it outside overnight and the dew settled on it and streaked the fresh copper. We liked it so much, we lacquered it and its been the same very since.
