I've never cranked it over far enough to scrape the pegs with the stock Kendas! They might scrape!

I got the shocks from a vendor over on ZF. You know the one. I don't know what brand they are. No mods to the front. I'd like to get the big rotor kit, but I'm really trying curb my spending on the thing!

This is my latest mod:





Mabey I should cool it on the Zuma pics and save it for the Zuma thread(s)

It took me about 5 years to finally get this done. I bought it the week my second daughter was born without an engine. This is a Vespa clone made in the 80s by a company called Bajaj. It is a 2 stroke and nearly identical to 70s Vespa Sprints. It has an LML (aka Stella) engine imported directly from India by some dude in Denver. I also heavily modified the front fender to fit a P series fork.

I think it's SPAM, not a scooter, unrelated to thread.
Here's my newly acquired Burgman under $2k:

The is-it-a-scooter debate might be endless, but the fact that you're basically posting random advertising shots makes it very spam like. How about some actual photos of you or your own scooter instead of just the company you work for?

i'm no authority ... but i always viewed a 'scooter' as a bike that your legs could pass threw and you didnt have to throw a leg over to mount.

jsut my vision of what a scooter is.

I don't consider a Burgman 650 a scooter. It's a step through motorcycle with an automatic transmission!
