Thanks, the Primavera is taking shape.

Once I got the Primavera motor out of the stand and into the bike, I put the V90 motor into the stand. It's pretty crusty and dirty - this motor will benefit from some attention. I am thinking about putting an ET3 top end on it, and changing it to a 4 speed, but we'll see.

Since I am keeping the Primavera bone stock, and the V90 will need significant bodywork, the V90 will probably get modified.

Hi Quasi Moto, I noticed your engine was exactly the same condition as my 90SS engine when I got so I thought I would show you what you end up with if you have it hydroblasted.

Dry ice blasting is great. No sand to get in the crevices, as with baking soda, and there's no clean up. You just gotta look for someone with a dry ice blaster.

Love the smallie party there, Nutmeg!

Hey Quasi - would love to hear your plans for a 4 speed in the old style smallie motor or is it a newer 90 with the older brake drum? You really want to go through all that work on those cases to only go to et3 performance? I would seriously consider a cylinder kit, they are fun as hell!

It's a newer 90 with the small brake drum. Honestly, I am still on the fence about 3spd vs. 4spd. It may depend on how well the repairs go on the frame, which has a rusted portion of the channel. If the frame comes out fantastic, I might go for the 4 spd and bigger top end. If it comes out looking like a farmer fix, it'll stay a 3 spd 90 - A mechanically sound 3 spd 90.

Ok small frame gurus. Tips needed. The ET3 is the worst when it comes to adjusting cables. Here's what we are doing to get to them.

For clutch cable I just do it on the stand, it's easy access from the fly side. Gear cables, I put the center stand on my wooden stand (2x6) and use a car jack stand on the back for better access. I am used to rolling around on the cement to fix bikes though, never had a lift.

Nut - you have the space in the garage and enough smallies to make it worth having a permanent base to monkey with smallie cables...Back in the day, I made the typical workstand base with a large drop out section behind the center stand and cable side of the motor. Up the ramp, put bike on stand, drop section and plenty of easy access to cables...You might consider it...

A chunk of 6x12 under the floorboards gets the whole bike off the ground without taking up too much real estate. A third hand tool and a 4" section of cable outer between the tool and the pinch bolt makes things easier too.
Simple work stand.

Suspended is my favorite. At first it seemed a little awkward having the scoot free to move, but after getting used to it, moving it instead of me comes in handy. Falling on you would not be good. I now have the lifting point moved to the front of the seat area for a more straight pull.

What keeps the front wheel from turning and letting it flop forward? I see the stand is stable enough, but I'm not sure how the front end stays completely stable.

Don't know for sure ... looks like the center stand boots might help keep it in place. If O'Brien trusts his SS on there it's probably pretty stable.

Are you wrapping the tie downs around the headset like you would tie down a bike? How are you hoisiting the rig up?

Panos, the purple Lambretta is going on eBay later this year. It is a blasphemy according to Lambretta owners because my evil genius friend and mechanic retro-fitted a modern et2 engine to fit. the original j50 lambrettas were horribly slow. this thing will cruise at 45mph now.

I lean it on the other side and take the back wheel off. I seem to remember, [ last time I did it ] that you can get at the cables more easily....

Forgive my ignorance, but what model is this scooter. I know nothing about smallies, but was considering branching out.

The aerodynamic body language says that smallie is full of spent money.

This is prob a post 1974 bike, as you can see the reflection of the bat side door on the the guard rail. Mono seat, repainted, lack of badge, older tail light and cash stuffed in engine makes it sorta custom?

Believe it or not we have never installed a new shock on a scoot. we ordered one from SIP. No crazy money spent and now we have a better front shock than what was on it. not fabulous but way way better than the dead one that was on it.

I have an electric winch attached to a rafter. I have used mainly solid eye bolts for the engine area, and rope, ratchet straps, or lash straps at the handlebars. Before electric, a simple come-along (cable puller). Both points tied to winch hook.

I've had the best luck at the front using lash straps or rope around the handlebars for leveling. With limited ceiling height, even an arms length off the ground would work okay, and not drop test the whole shebang as severely. It is nice to stand up or sit in a chair for some tasks. The scoot being free to move aggravates some people who've tried it.

I also use it for removing and installing engines. Winches with cordless remotes are nice.

Both devices have stern warnings against use as lifting devices. Use at your own risk.

P instead of smallie.

Pacrat let's see that front rack from the front and an angle. Is that the one on SIP that is stated as being for smallframes? I'm eyeballing that one.

If your willing, also one of the inside of the leggy where those hooks go over and where they attach under the horn. Thanks a ton.

Hey sdjohn!

I picked that rack up second hand but new from a local moped genius, but I believe you are right. I'll see if I can find out the model.

I'm away from home for the evening, but will get some pics tomorrow. Stand by. . .

I think it is this one http://www.sip-scootershop.com/main/base/Details.aspx?ProductNumber=25500800

But, I have the larger suction type bumpers on the bottom. The measurements are the same 31 x 21mm

Here are the pics you requested. I do really like having the rack although I don't use it much.
