Might be slightly early Christmas, but my scoot will be getting fresh oil and filter, fresh hub oil, Dr. Pulley sliders and variator guides, a new belt, fresh coolant, a tightening of the glove box hinges, fresh brake fluid, and I hope a rubdown of ACF-50.

And it just got a Heidenau K61 rear tire.

I think I have it all....

I've spent my entire allocation for PTW $$ (and then some) on my 1949 Harley-Davidson this year. I'm giving it a complete rebuild. All the way down to the bare frame. I'm rebuilding everything from brakes to transmission to the engine. My P200e has been getting hard daily duty since August. Paint on the Harley should be done soon so my hope is that for Christmas I can give the P200e a break and start riding the Harley on a daily basis again.

Everyone's giving me money for christmas to get the damage fixed, but I've told them not to bother, because it's likely I'll just leave it looking a state, and get a new exhaust.

My small frame 90 is getting the rest of the parts for its rebuild. The Bev and the P200 get new Italian flag stickers (looks really good on them) full washing and wax and the Honda Met gets new cheap ass shiny chrome mirrors as well as a detailing with the other bikes.

It just got new fluids & a fresh rear tire. Since I'm feeling generous, I think I'll wash it for the first time in six months. I'm also treating it to a day at the toy run tomorrow. It is excited to meet 15,000+ motorcycles & a handful of scooters.

A carb rebuild and a whole host of tweaks that I can't do with my meager allotment of tools and lack of workspace. And TAGS!!!

It's not much, but we're perpetually broke working in the arts. So, it's more than many neglected scooters get

An oil filter to have as a spare "in stock," chrome brake levers, Givi backrest, and an OEM front rack. It always gets a new registration sticker around this time, too.

It's already received an early gift...

A new cover.
The old one was a bit oversized and, well, old. It was re-gifted to the motorcycle. *

...and will receive a late gift...
Belt, rollers, oil/filter change, and a few other things already purchased but waiting for Spring to spring before installing. Maybe I'll see if I can figure out how to install that front rack I purchased last year in time for Amerivespa next year.

*Fear not. The motorcycle doesn't feel neglected. Being new to me this year, it's already received a new luggage rack, sissy bar, windshield, clock, tank bag, and is also awaiting winter's end to have the 12V plug installed.**

My scoot has had Christmas every few weeks for the past six months... but I like to spoil my plum. So as an early Christmas present it will be getting a full top end build. Polini cylinder, malossi head, and malossi cam. Get the Carb cleaned while its under the knife and replace some random body screws that have gone missing. It just got a new malossi variator today... to replace the polini that was in there.

I have decided to deflate the tires and put in some fresh air. I was going to change the oil, but it has been only seven thousand miles and I don't want to spoil it.

BENNY won't that be covered under warranty? It should be. Good luck. MIN thanks. Everybody has their thoughts but i was told the Malossi is better than the Bitubo. Lasts longer with less problems. The red would clash with my plum scooter as well.

If Iris keeps being nice to me she will get her beloved floor mat back which was taken away from her shortly after purchase. X-mas also came early for her when whe got a termoscud. For stocking stuffers she will be given some new decals to cover some new and old scratches.
