The one where you put 1/4 cup of sugar in the tank every time you fill up to double the horsepower?

You mean that one?

I don't really care for all those 500cc type deals, they cost more than a motorcycle, and don't really get good mileage.
Not sure what size this scooter is,....

if I'd have to take a guess it's a 38/40 DDD, 20 liters, no foam...

Nah. Can't do it.

It's got to be lime green or some other sissy color for my wife. She wants to make a fashion statement with it.

I hope she doesn't want flowers painted on it.





Actually, sissy colors are just fine on scooters. The body styling makes such a bold design statement that colors don't really matter, IMHO.
