    I really like the "naked" look like the Ruckus, but I need more power :D . I don't like the look of the Big Ruckus as much. I've been looking for a Burgman/Majesty/Silver Wing which is driveable but with messed up body panels (laid down) that I could strip down. I've never seen one of these with no plastic. Some of the sport bikes look really knarley under the bodywork. Would this be feasible to make a naked scooter by removing the body panels? How hard would it be to clean up (hide wiring/hoses/etc.)?Anybody know where I might look for a donor scooter for a good price?

    Try the photo section at FF Web, there are pictures of a naked Silverwing and others in the Mega Scooter section.

    Yeah, I've done it. Looked like a wet poodle.

    Otter,

    Thanks for the link to the FF Web site. I've been trying to find naked scooter photos but haven't seen any. That site was just what I was looking for.

    Mike :D
