Thats Nyles show bike, the one he and John Built for Vegas.

There are pics of the whole blinged out scoot online.

Was talking to a powder coater today at work (local phone company BTW) and after I mentioned to him I had a scooter and was looking for some podwer coating (wheels, maybe flywheel) he mentioned that he now has red chrome! Anyone have any examples? Would love to ditch the check stripe for some red chrome trim and rally style stripes.

Guys...look at the cases... it's still clearly a P200 engine ( or some variant )

It's got a water cooled top-end ...hence the lack of fins.

He's got that alternator bolted on top of the engine, and it's powered by a pulley hooked up to a custom CNC milled looking flywheel ... it doesn't have the usual fins you're used to seeing because the engine is water cooled, so it doesn't need them. So, under that pulley is probably the same old stator / magnet system you're used to seeing.

He's got a big carb mounted backward behind the alternator on a manifold.

The amount of money in chroming this thing i bet was really substantial.
