    I'd love to update this thread, but I'm stuck waiting for Ebay dude to send me the forks i bought... plus, i have to send them to the painters.
    In the meantime i polished (kinda) those chrome skinny bars that end up on the rear shocks, they where heavily rusted and pitted... used the Dremel on those with an OK result, I guess I'll be changing those later on.
    Also, i forgot to install the wiring harness before installing the rear wheel... hope that it doesn't interfere that much.

    The wiring to the tail/brake light does run up underneath the rear fender. It may still be possible to install it, but it should be a lot easier with the rear wheel off. One neat thing about mopeds (with no gas in them) is that you can literally flip them upside down like a bicycle, sitting them on the seat and bars, for better access to some things.
