Interestingly enough, it's the only scooter with a 500 amp alternator!

All of these replies has made my day better. Just called my wife over to look at both the picture of the scooter and some of the replies. She laughed too.

Thank you.

I'll bet he did, several hundred times.

Any of you familiar with The Who album Quadrophenia? That's simply a kitted out Mod scoot. How about the Continental kit on the back?

Even if the alternator was large enough to feed all that....I wonder if the engine would have enough horsepower left to go anywhere!

It's like a Harley chopper. It doesn't matter if it goes or not, you're just going to trailer it to the bike show so everyone can bask in its magnificence. Yep, an OCC scooter.
