Thank you! I'm thinking it won't be too difficult a build at this point. I feel like I have the basics down for assembly and it doesn't sound too complex in terms of tuning. Hoping to pull the trigger soon on some parts.

I'm going to have to build it in stages to spread out the costs. Better in the long run than trying to save money by cheaping out on parts. I have all winter. Goes like this:

Stage 1: Bottom end

Stage 2:Top end

Stage 3: Carb and clutch

Case is already on my bench.

Glad you will be following along, but don't hold your breath. It's going to take me a couple more dives under the couch cushions for some change before I can get this started. But it will get built by spring.

I really like the paint and wear and tear on your scooter. I love 2 tone, but it's hard to do without making it look like a bodge.

Thank you very much! I can't take credit for the look of the bike as it currently sits as I bought it in it's current state. After our rally in November she's getting a good ol tear down for paint and bodywork. Knowing me I'll start a silly thread about it with too many pics and a crap ton of stupid questions!

I'm generally not a fan of two-tone, but I really like the look of yours. Share some good pictures before you tear it down for inspiration to the rest of us.

That green, along with the overall style, has a very vintage vibe to it that makes it all work.
