I found this on You Tube this morning.. I haven't seen it here so suspect that the owner may not post.. Not really my cup of tea.. but lot's and lots of mods !! Probably he really messed up his warranty !

Wow - lots of mods.

But somethng is amiss. Look at the license plate and logos, etc - everything is a mirror image - why??

Yeah that is really weird. Muffler on the wrong side...everything is reversed. I am thinking this MP3 exists in a mirrored parallel universe.

It cannot be easy to check the air in the rear tire or change it for that matter. Why is everything backward and upside down? That is too weird.
Wonder what the big orange reflectors on the dash are for? I thought maybe turn signal indicators?

All that work and no HIDs or LEDs! Or would that be DIHs and DELs?

Would hate to go over that windshield !! Never saw that type of "wind breakers", on the leg panels ? Wonder if he really wanted a H-D ? Lots of work done on it.

W-O-W, I've never felt so Conservative!

Pretty impressive, regardless whether or not you'd want it done to your own scoot. This guy certainly threw everything onto it that he could think of.

I'd like to figure out where he got those Side Wind Deflectors.

Wow! Now I see why shipping costs have gone through the roof! And I thought it was fuel cost increases. Silly me!

Its as if it was shot on film and the video transfer was done on the reverse side of the film, causing the reverse image.

Chances are he coverted the video from another format and trip the invert function in error.

Thanks for the nice work on the flip, traz! Now my brain can flip back to 'normal' mode.

Well obviously he lives in Hawaii. That's a Tow-Pac trike kit. He's obviously proud of his rig. Not my cup of tea.

At least the garish looks and screwed handling nicely compliment the woefully underpowered result of adding all that weight.

Looks like a big pain in the butt and wallet, if you ask me. My only mod in 4 years is a 65cm Fabbri screen. I don't even have descent side bags. That things looks like it could spontaneously combust at any moment.

Easy on the judgements, folks. Half the fun of owning a bike is making it your own ride. It looks like this fella has put a lot of work into making his MP3 to be the machine that gives him the most pleasure. It's not what I would do, but it's not my ride.

For what the guy was after, it looks like he's accomplished it in spades. I don't have to pretend that his ride should be set up like mine; I don't even have to pretend to understand his motives. He's done some good work and he's happy with his ride. That's ultimately what's important.

That whole "ride your own ride" concept shouldn't be forgotten here.

I don't know, perhaps the inspiration came from this snazzy little number?

I just watched "The Big Bang Theory" with the time machine. Penny said it looked like something Elton John would ride through the everglades.

Now I finally know what someone means when they say they have
a 5th wheel

Honestly I'm surprised he went for a scooter w/ 3 wheels when it
would seem the intention may always have been to use the kit fitment.
But defo a inspired person to 'make it his own' if ever I saw one.

looking at this two things came to my mind:

1st My states law says two or three wheel its a motorcycle or moped (won't go into the technical law differences here) Four wheels it's a car, Hmmph does five wheels make it UGLY?

2nd He missed a possible Mod; No roof.

I love the JC Whitney catalog as much as the next guy - and that is a 4 start smoking credit card vehicle of AWESOME!

I wonder if his helmet matches his gear and scooter, or if it is a contrasting color. We need a poll about that.
