Chopped the rear mud flap.

The USA version has lollipop blinkers on the mud flap but it's easy to re-wire the blinkers to uses the original blinkers in the taillight assembly - has this pattern:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
blinker | running light | brake light | running light | blinker
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I relocated the license plate using a vertical mount frame with integrated LED lights. I used the original wiring from the license plate light. The options are to either mount the it to the lower strut bolt using an L-bracket or to simply bolt it to the plastic airbox cover. LED License Plate Frame (Radiantz):

The 500 is, I think, by far the best maxi scooter out there. Looks are second to none against the other maxis, unless you count the elegant brilliance of the Morphous:roll:.

How would it look without a windscreen? Compliment the back better?

Looks great, but where did the plate go?

On the left side, using a vertical mount frame with integrated light - custom chopper-ish. More information in the original post (above).

OK, I just couldn't "picture" it.
