OK, that's NOT a round headlite, right? Nice looking wreck to start with, I believe that soon you too will proudly ride a 10" largeframe.

Now then, MORE pics plz? (Duh)
And start a list, post it up.

I thought you were shopping for a vintage scooter lift!
Apparently I was 2/3's right - which frankly - I'll take.

Signed up to follow this one - and happy to loan a hand - by "storing" one of your extra scoots if you need it.

Thx all ... I think. Not sure what Iíve gotten into yet.

The bad: Missing right cowl, headlight, some other bits, engine seized, been sitting outside for ages, shift and throttle tubes stuck solid, everythingís going to have to come apart and get a good cleaning.

The good: Whatís there is original and unmolested, frame is pretty straight, no rot or major dings. Didnít cost too much.

Sjanuary: Ha, maybe ROM 2021.

Christopher: Yep, digging the sticker. Original owner was an army guy who rode it around the base back in the day.

Voodoo: Yep, trap headlight, 10ís. A big boy.

More pics to come.

Love the GL. Great lines, 10" wheels, simple engine and electrics.

That engine cowl is going to be tough.

Ok, more pics for those following along...

Plan is simple ... take it all apart, see what's what, fix what's broken, straighten it up, and make it run again.

I'm guessing these two port GLs were not speed demons so any tips or any suggestions on beefing the motor up, gearing, etc. welcome.

john: thx for the tip on cowls. Putting an order together now.

charlieman: garage space is getting tight... be careful what you offer, I may drop a scoot off, or two.


Full frontal


Came with the roached old saddle seat frame ... I'll replace with a bench seat


Clutch cable bodge


Lever bodge


Rear tire on backwards


drip tray intact


not bad for almost 60 years old


Siem ... worth saving?


wheelie fail... worst of the dents


secret under cowl kill switch! (but no cowl)


frozen solid, missing flywheel, crank looks rusty. starting to regret ...


foggy but in nice shape ... speed appears to be mph?

Regrets? No, no, no. Once you dive into it and get it all taken apart, you'll feel better. I went thru the same on the Sprint and was bummed because I could not save the original paint. And the engine looks like yours, so total rebuild is in order. Hopefully the rotary pad is in good shape as well as all the gears, tree, etc....Upside is you have scoots to ride when you need to clear you head. Take your time with this one and enjoy the journey. If you need something, say something. Good Luck

Wouldn't be hard to weld if you got a guy that can do aluminum. You'd need to drill & retap it M8 of course.... I'd be tempted to drill thru for an M7 bolt, use a wedge block on the far side under the nut and do it sort of like a P if I couldn't get it welded. Looks like it should clear the pivot bolt fine.

Oh Damn, that sucks. I feel your pain, this mirrors the scoot I have now. I am on my second can Of PBlaster and I keep the industrial heat gun within arms length. Still had to drill out many bolts and screws, I could not even get the jets out of the carby without heat and blaster. Upside is you are keeping this out of the landfill. And it will be a cool ride. 8)

Let's just vote, you first? (you got a welder guy and a spare twenty?)

If you do get it welded, you could try clamping it up, tapping it clean, dremelling in full chamfers at the break then installing a copper bolt and crossing your fingers it'll be fine after it's welded and you pull the bolt.
