Another year, another bump...
I still haven't got around to firing up this scooter yet. For some reason i haven't been too motivated to finish up a few details on it...such as the wiring. All i need to do is buy a battery for it, then i can build a battery tray, wire in a relay and fuses, and hook up the ignition switch wires. It would literally be a one day job, but i've just been unmotivated to by a single flippin battery! I must be lazy or something.
BUT, i did install a LED inside my taillight. I used an off the shelf trucker light (that i bought from Six-States). I figure if the light can handle the riggers of being on a semi-trailer, then it can surely work on the back of a Vespa.
I simply gutted out the stock taillight housing enough to just barely fit in the LED. Then i gooped in a bunch of epoxy. Yes it looks ghetto, but once the lens is back on, it hides a multiple of sins. The bonus about using a "trucker" light is that they are pretty darn bright, which is always good thing when it comes to being seen on a moto.
