Project 'beo
 
The looks just agree with me. I pulled the trigger and bought SikDmax's project 150. Hope I can get it running without alot of intense work.:lol3 Delivery day and SikDmax has got a nice recovery vehicle!

Sounds fun and good luck! Let us know how it goes!

Good luck with that 'Beo. Did you get the rest of it, like in plastics?

I got a nice stable of bikes, but for a quick local ride; my Scarabeo really puts a smile on my face. :raabia

Thanks guys. Yep, got all the plastics. I could use a service manual if anyone knows of one floating around. Are the mirrors standard 10mm ones? I'm sure I'll have alot of other questions.

Well, looks like really bad news.:cry

Anybody have a good engine laying around?:deal

Holy hell!That engine had some issues. :eek1

vtwin 01-31-2012 08:15 PM

Guess I should not buy sight unseen. Oh well, have gotten lucky in the past. Looks like it may be an ebay scoot. Too bad as it's a pretty clean bike.

Forde 01-31-2012 08:50 PM

what in the fck happened to that :huh

If I were to hazard a guess, I would have to say it was killed through lack of maintenance...

The engine is rebuildable though; looks like a complete head, cylinder, piston, and crank assembly. Hey, I never said it would be cheap!

I'll be checking on prices for these, will update as it happens. Some hopping up isn't out of the question either.:evil

Took the cylinder off yesterday, wow!:eek1

I only took a quick look into the carb and didn't notice the carb slide missing.:dunno

btcn 02-04-2012 10:42 PM

Holy shit!:eek2

WTF happened to that thing?

I'd say it ain't worth even trying unless you can find a decent used engine.

That's the plan. A new engine from Scuderia is close to $1700. May as well get another one for that. I think a used one will be cheaper than getting all the parts to get this one running.

Thats not tooo bad. A little more than its worth though I think.

But, if you can find a decent priced used engine, why not? I here this is a pretty good scooter, can do 70-75 MPH I here.
