My 2001 ET2 ... Not had her long and she has her problems (and I've no idea what I'm doing!) but already I love her.

I bought some cheap bar end mirrors off e bay but thought they might be a bit too much. Got the dremmel out and adjusted them accordingly. I've got better vision with them than with my standard mirrors.

What do you mean by "Handlebar and stem conversion"?

I plan on using one of these adjustable scooter stems that goes inside the original fork tube. And then attach a pair of Renthal style Mx bars

My ET4 50cc bought for £100 as a shed. Got it up and running put mot on it last fortnight. Slow as old boots though and what a pain to get at spark plug.

Greetings:

2003 ET4 purchased with 341 miles on the counter. Lots and lots of Projects. Kicker refurbishing is next.
Update: Typo - the scooter had 541, not 341 miles.

Kickstarter now works perfectly.

Malossi variator and belt make a tangible difference in off-line and rapid acceleration, as it allows engine revs to spool up a little and apply real power instead of Chug-Chug with the stock unit.

Shed scratches fixed with Color-Rite Dragon Red pen. 2 Bigger scuffs will require a different approach.

Still on Pirelli tires date-stamped 3706. This replacement probably needs to be next. I hate watching my own front tire tread fling out in front of the scooter riding at 55 MPH.

FYI any DOT-approved road-going tire has an oval stamp like the one in my pic. 3706 means the tire was minted during the 37th week of 2006. It made me wonder why some previous owner decided to replace the tires when the scooter had less than 500 miles Tires might have been damaged, a desire for better performance or the P.O. was following the same thought process. But tires that are only 3 year-old don't generally don't need replacement

Just completed as of today, a total overhaul and rebuild of this 2003 ET2 and it's now for sale. (Will list in "For Sale" section soon)
Installed many new parts along the way, too many to list here but it's all upgraded along with a Malossi 70cc top end, 10% upgear kit, 17.5mm carb, Leo Vince exhaust, new shocks, LX wheels.... the list goes on.
Many thanks to others here who helped inspire me with this project.
Nice work on this rebuild, where did you find the smoked turn signal lenses?

2001 ET4
2001 ET4, stock except for the chrome crash rails on back and replaced the stock mirrors with chrome retro-look round mirrors.
It sat for years until it became mine. Replaced all the dry-rot items and she runs like a champ.
Downside of an old ET4 = hard to find accessories.

I bought 2 ET2 50's for a bargain £600 in Bitcoin back in April. They are both 2003 models but have different engines. After quite a bit of work I put the black one on the road with a fresh 12 month MOT though the blue one needs a bit of welding and a respray which I am currently working on though progress is slow due to work commitments. The pic shows how they looked on the day that I purchased them and I will update the pics when the work is finished. Thanks for looking.

Salut,

Beau scooter! Les jantes rose; Une touche inattendue! Le levier du frein avant me parait un peu proche de la poignée?
