DIY Projects for that old scooter

Did some searching and I couldn't find some of these helpful projects in the forum. A lot I've either done to my Elite or are planned future projects. Great way to bring some new life into that old scooter.

Changing tires
Tubes;

Tubeless;

With a relay (if you plan to leave things plugged in or it's a usb);

This thread's a work in progress, have a few more links at home... adv at work to entertain me on nightshifts.

Or if you have anything to contribute I'll add it up here. Just trying to make a generic list for people that pick up an old 80's scooter and scratch their heads thinking "now what..?"

For anyone living in cold areas, and really don't want to pay $100+ on a heated jacket...

I made this using a $4 thrift store vest, a few dollars in wire, fuses, solder, etc. I did a ride at -20 C and it didn't feel like death.
