Put the new clutch in, put the motor in, put the PIPE on, and FIRED IT UP. That pipe has the SWEETEST sound i've ever heard... Now to go ride!!!


Shit! I attached a phone video. didn't work...however in the meantime I just took in down the block and back HOLLY SHIT!!! Between Gick and that pipe it's BRUTAL... front tire kept coming off the ground... I didn't hook up my back break thank god for front disc... I have to figure out how to get the video up

GICK... It WORKED!!!! Big time... I'm about to explode (more than normal) Laughing emoticon


Now I gotta go hook up my break, do the wiring for REAL (couldn't wait)
and try to figure out how to put a video on here. It's a tank. I did it on youtube, here a link.

Thanks brother... I have to get a good gps, and a go pro... I can't tell you how Fast that thing is... and with the new clutch like Butter... it's a scary pleasure to ride or fly... Gick did amazing work inside my motor, and what he did agrees with that exhaust big time.. I just stuck a 350 main in (used to be a 280), left the 45 idle and boom... the Vespa Gods were smiling... Runs amazing.
I gotta take it tomorrow on longer rides, and do chops...
Shit I gotta go hook up my brake, I keep forgetting... def. need it.

I fixed the hinges on a top case that came as a option in 1980. I really didn't want the top case but the OEM bug lights that came were worth the hundred. plus two tires.

Nah just trying to ungum that filter (decided it had too many gaps and was too gross). Off to SW tomorrow to buy a new one, some jets, gaskets and other bits. Seems like this bogging bug is going around, by all the posts on here. And y'all gotta see Vader's P in person, it's a work of art.

Oh stop, it's not a contest, and trust, me they've all got little imperfections and shit that'll drive me crazy for ever... That P (hidden by my photography) actually has a bunch of holes drilled in the engine cowl (partially covered w/ an M-Man sticker) I was going to do a nice grid of vent holes, grommet 'em, and put some black mesh behind, but I slipped on the 3rd hole, F'it up (at least in my anal mind), wife was buggin' me, phone wouldn't stop dinging and I got angry and just drilled the rest like a crazy man, and they're not in a nice straight pattern... so I've gotta come up w/ a fix... (maybe body shop'll do something cool, but then it's back to find that yellow in a powdercoat etc. etc. etc. so don't be jealous. When I build my version of the perfect bike, I'll share, and maybe then... but who know's if that'll ever happen.... expectations WAY too high...

Thanks though brother. I'm a big fan of your GS... I can only dream.
Cheers

22 degress in West Mids, got the "Karshar" out for a bit of patio cleaning, then got excited and did the driveway, then the car and finished off with the bike.

Its now gleaming. Still waiting for the clear indicator set, the white walls and the St George (ready for 23 April) sticker to arrive...


Only problem is, my once shiny bald head, is now pink. And hurts a touch. Point to self. Wear hats in warm weather now my hair has gone!

It should be a lot quicker than your 177 if it was set up correctly.
