Is it oke to said i finish the bike my cam aint that good in night will tske a pic in the morning, as for what i done to the bike, i buuld a custom seat, put a lamp on the horn place retouch the paint, use a 120-70-10 on the rear tyre and a 300 on front, the engine itself isnt alive (till i add fuel) but i manage to put all in, its a latest px 150 engine with a 7 spring clutch, a rescued barrel, and a 20-20 carb with a SaigonScoot exhaust, maybe some wacko carb cover that will make u guys laugh

Till tomorow, have a nice monday and cheer

That looks outstanding, Brother E!

I can't wait to see it in the light of day, and also what you did with the light in the horn. That's sounds so cool.

Thanks guys this is the morning pics, just need put fuel and away it go maybe fix the seat later when i found a velcro, and yes Brother Chandler the light in the horncase is a must cause i dont have a headlight in the handlebar maybe i will put it there when i found a used one

Maybe Bitsa will proud, as this vespa is indeed a bits from this bike and a bits from other vespa, and the majority of the cost to build is $70 from scratch and 10 months but i will always try my best to make it clean to make Vader proud as well

Epic Brother E. As always. Howís she running? Have you had a chance to take her for a spin or is the lockdown preventing that?

Well ... I read and followed the post ...
If there is one thing that comes out victorious from all this, it is not the Vespa but the will and skill, having tested yourself is a great undertaking.

Thanks guys, i do have the vid, i just dont know how to share it, the engine rev strongly and no issues, several days ago i lost the kickstart, and realize that i have a taller stut hitting the clutch presure plate, grind it down and have no more issues (i forgot that years ago i modified the stut pivot (something that look like numbrr 9 that hit the stut) to be able using older stut, so when i put a new stut brass they were too tall )

Keep on the vespa spirit and cheer

Is that an old helmet made into a windscreen with a headlite where the horn usually goes?

If so it's RADICAL, props for thinking outside the box and doing what you can with what you got!

I nailed it
Finally my sprint project is wrap, i cheat tho put the pink engine in the sprint and call it a day since my right thumb is active again so i test ride the bike for 80km and i am happy, its been 6 years since i ride a sprint and it sure does fun

I even help my nephew the no oil boy fix his bike on Mr. Tony place and admire the new custom rear shock that Mr. Tony make

Will ride the sprint further and beyond until then have a nice day to you all, stay safe and cheer
