I'd just clean it up.

Check on the year for that crank.

I thought a skip tooth came on that year but could be wrong.

Not today but yesterday.....took my lump down to the shop to borrow their impact wrench and clutch remover tool. Replaced all the seals and the cruicform. PO stated the engine had some work done when he bought it. Bearings looked good so I left those. Took her home and threw some permatex on the gasket, mated the two halves.

Dropped the stator off with my mechanic to rewire....everything was getting rotten so he is gonna rewire.

Now everything is cleaned up and almost reassembled. Gonna clean up the cylinder and head and slap those back on there. I got a spare set of rings around too so I may measure the gap on those and see if I can use them with this cylinder and replace while I have this thing apart. Old rings look good too though and swapping rings is less of a PITA to me than breaking in new ones. May just run it as is.

Moar buffing and polishing. Paint is coming along nicely and the legshield trim is now a mirror finish.

BTW....this is a P200e I got for $500....think I got about another $150 in parts in it. Liking this bike so much I may sell my other one if this comes together nicely. Very original and very unmolested. Me like.

I'm going to try to take the scoot out for a nice long ride, as it will be the last one for quite a while. Tomorrow morning I am finally (damn Medicaid only took 2 years) going in to have my elbow rebuilt. So my summer will be spent in physical therapy instead of on the scoot, and or about a month I will be sporting something like this (and yes thats attached to the bone )

Good luck with that. Surgery sucks but hopefully it will get you right in the long run.

That's an interesting array of bikes. What's that brown and black thing? looks like an old BMX frame with a motor in it.

I do believe that is exactly what it is. Pretty freaking scary if you take a look at it that giant fly-wheel spins directly under your pant leg...

Driving home from work this morning after night shift a truck ploughed into the car behind me who ploughed into me. Glad I wasn't on the Vespa! nobody hurt but not much left of the middle car. Couldn't help thinking what if I had been there on the scoot. Best not to think about that shit I guess.

That sucks Bobo! glad you didn't get mangled!... the thought does creep into hy head some days when I'm riding in traffic... just waiting for some dink to plow into the cars behind me.. or just into me.. everyone's in a hurry and not paying attention.. and you're right.. being rear ended in a car is one thing.. on a scoot.. that'd be a World of Hurt! Glad you'r not whiplashed or anything!

Another badass Honda picture by Scootnwinn!

Today I...

Woke up to the sound of a kitten meowing very loud out side. Go outside and see it 25-30 ft. up in the cottonwood tree. Pulled the classic phone call to the fire dept. They got it down and called animal control. We gave it some food and water, and told animal control that it ran off. Went to my buddy's place and played his 1951 bowling arcade name. Went fishing at a private pond with his family afterwards. Ate a Cool Ranch Doritos taco at Taco Bell. It was another 20 mile day on the scoot. The Gickspeed Special is fuckin rockin the house!

Bobo,

I must confess... I have a weakness for cats. I have a 19 year old sybirian tiger looking cat that just went blind and a black polydactly (the cats with mutated paws). Also have a pretty badass turtle and white lab. Animals are tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!

And I....

Well....

I am a....

We called the fire department about getting our cat out of the top of a 40' oak tree once, and the guy told us the cat would come down when he got hungry. He said "we haven't found a cat skeleton in a tree yet." My wife was not pleased. The cat did finally figure out how to come down on it's own after a day or so.

Thanks Ebeth!

Astro,
That sucks. Glad the cat made it down though.

Bitsa,
Lets see this twistie. It better be painted flat black by the time you give it back.

Birdsnest,
Thanks for sharing the cool menu

"The Slayer" should be some hot spicy food that makes you shit for the entire day after eating it.

Thankfully there is nothing on these menus called "The GG Allen".

Haaaa.. I saw GG twice when I was in college.. and I wouldn't want to post what I saw here! I'll just say.. there was a banana, an ugly naked guy, and his buttholio.. Razz emoticon and of course the cops.. both times! A can of spray detergent, a bic lighter and of course blood were involved too! Lovely man that GG!
