Thank you - couldn't have done it without you!

I got a real surprise - I couldn't seem to get the clutch adjusted right because it didn't seem to release as you wheel it around indoors. Prior to that I was convinced the motor would need to come out and clutch revised. But it seemed to run just fine with it in gear and the clutch pulled.

It'll only rev to maybe 2500 at the moment. It does only have a tiny little stock 125 pipe on it that's about half the size of the exhaust port. As soon as I get the roadworthy and registration, the proper pipe is going on and as Jack says, the jetting will begin!

Congrats, Ginch!

I love it! Not just the scoot, but also, speaking as the Ed Woods of Scooter Videos, the video, too!

There was a fair bit of snickering going on as Craig put the video together!



Thanks everyone for the kind words!

Hahahaha!
Awesome boys!
Cant wait to see/here the piped jetted version after road worthiness nonsense is dealt with.
Very cool group effort to create this one.
Some day someone will find that thing in an Australian barn and be like - how the F*@K did this get here?!
A moon rock indeed.
Congrats.

Most excellent BlueBadge, Sir! Nice vid as well.



Can't believe it's the same bike!

Guessing you are SO tall, you don't wanna use that sweet original Piaggio seat?

Well I will be using it - I found what I thought was a smallframe seat cover in my stash and put it on... think it actually might be LF though. Ran out of time to neaten it up as we had the next one to assemble!

Congrats Ginch! The video is priceless

The front fork with the hydraulic brake is an upgrade I've been contemplating for some time. Looking forward when you get things dialed in and take the smallframe out for a thorough workout.

Finally watched the vid! Priceless Milestone! Congrats on all your work finally paying off.

I'm curious about that MC, as I'm looking at it for my own projects. Looks great and you said it fits well too; so thats a good start.

Thanks guys, Craig did the video mostly on his phone. Now if they had that phone to go to the moon, they may have been able to stop off at Mars on the way home!

GeekLion, let's know if you need any details re the m/c, happy to measure for you.
