Go for it!

If you want a dual front disk, but not a verry expensive 13 inch front wheel.
Or a big 16 inch Beverly wheel.
You can also use a 14 inch Peugeot Satelis 500 front wheel.

Piaggio delivered the Master engine to Peugeot, and they installed it on the Satelis.

The rear wheel of the satelis is also 14 inch.

front wheel
Front forks wont take a bigger wheel, however a mte has a twin front disc specially designed for scomadi race scoots.

Just a question.
why don't you use a Scomadi TL125, and convert that to a 500cc.
Then you can get that registered as a heavy bike, because it already is a small bike.
This way it is road legal.

Here in the Netherlands that is the way to go.
Don't know exact how it works in your country.....

125
A tl 125 frame and a tl 50 frame are exactly the same, the difference between a tl 125 scooter and a tl 50 scooter is about £1,200. plus the 50cc scooter has twin shock mounts and the tl125 only has 1. most of the bigger engines use 2 shocks, not a mono shock, so for me a 50cc is a no brainer.

But never road legal then?
In holland you cant go from a 50cc to a 125 or more.
From a 125cc to more is possible and legal.

Road Legal
I have converted many 50cc into 300,s all have been registered with no problems what so ever, ive built a 400 burgman based scomadi , and several lambretta series 2 with gts engines also fitted. The last lambretta done was adapted for a guy who only has one arm, so hydraulic rear brake lhs throttle and switches etc.

fabrication near the end
most of the fabrication is done now, just mounts for regulator ecu etc. I have a small problem with the throttle body catching the frame work, I have ordered a mp3 500 intake which is made from alloy, so it can be cut and welded.
