So some of you may remember me from requesting info on a project I was doing. You all were so nice I decided to show you all some results I ended up making the rear fenders removable and light-weight so that they can be carried along. To the bars I added hand guards for those pesky bugs and wind. The gas filler was moved to the floor boards and gas will be stored in the monocoque (sp?) frame. Those were just a few of the innovations. The seat was also changed, and molded into the body better. I decided to go for a lesser engine size because I don't think the time I spent on this project was worthy of the 250cc. Anyway, without further adue,

I for one like it. The gas location is a good idea, the removable cowls is great. Keep up the good work, Beale.

Cool, I hope you got a good grade.

Was the color scheme inspired by one of our own MV member's photos perhaps?

I don't think you are being dumb ... I think you need a new computer

They should just come right up in your browser just like any other graphic ... like the Modern Vespa logo at the top of the page.

Not dumb... from this, and from the problem you're having uploading pictures, it sounds like you really need a better browser than the one you're using.

I would actually loe one for myself, but being as how I am just graduating from college, can't really afford one. Oh well. As for the grade, there wasn't one, it was a project that I did just to broaden my student portfolio. I don't really remember where I got the color scheme from, but I did look at the metropolitans when I was doing research so maybe a subliminal thing. Thanks for all your criticism guys.

Nope, not the MSF Basic, Larry. High school parking lot with my daughter's autocross cones. (She drives a battery Jeep around them in the driveway.)

In Ohio, you can't use your own bike. And she's probably have the face sheild down, too. [/OffTopic]
