SUNL Conversion

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_D...2/DSC00492.JPG
I hope you guys and gals can see this converted SUNL 150cc scooter. My friend took my old scooter's plastics off, found a Honda 350 older one, used the lights, tank, blinkers, and then added a tractor seat, plus a riding lawn mower battery. Now he is cruising it. I'll try to post a before pic if this post worked ok.

Nice.
I know that seat. Under the right condition those holes will pinch your skin.
Looks like some welding was done on the frame.

Thanks George

Thanks for posting the pic. I'll figure it out again someday. I did it once before, but, I forgot how. At first the only welding he did was the tab on the front of the tank for a mount. A couple of hours since I posted the above post. Now he has cut off the pipe and welded a chrome pipe on where the muffler was. I will take more photo later.

I checked out your blog, but must have missed the part where you got the dent on the leftside of the silver scoot. What's the story?

A local classic Vespa/Lambretta club here in Phoenix invited us local "regular" scooterist for a morning coffee meet and wonderful ride today. Lots of neat and well loved classics. I haven't smelled that 2S premix in a LONG time!

Thank you very much guys!

I was driving too fast... tried to stop for a photo... had pretty bad back breaks and had to use front as well... front wheel locked on the gravel and I went down. I broke my ankle and had to finish majority of the trip limping. I didn't say anything on my blog because our parents were reading and I didn't want to worry them :)

Thank you very much!
Sergei

I hope the right conditions don't mean naked?

Doesn't everyone have crashbars on a Vespa?

My neighbor's beautiful, beautiful girls. The middle one is my scooter buddy and has ridden with me a bunch of times. Nothing but trouble.
