    Great looking scoot! I wish that color was actually a factory color. Great job on the paint!

    Thanks, its a great scooter. I really like it...no regrets. You should see my wife's, it gets more compliments than mine.

    The only credit I can take for the paint is the color choice...Vespa Sherman Oaks expertly handle the paint and the R&R. The #1 selling Vespa dealership in the US. www.vespaso.com

    Another red vehicle in your garage?

    Post up the green on too. They are both good long rides!

    I had an altercation with a jeep which destroyed my bondo'ed stock fender. His insurance paid out and I promptly chopped off the stock fender and got myself a hugger. Totally fits the desert racer/hot rod style. :freaky

    XVS504,I`m REALLY liking the look of your scoot ! :freaky

    It probably looked great as it was,but removing the stock front mudguard to reveal the fork leg and adding the hugger looks superb.

    However,I think you should re-route that brake hose along the fork leg to avoid any snagging hazards.

    (I didn`t quote your post as it`s annoying when people do this and all the photos are constantly re-posted making very long replies)

    Yes...I know that.

    But sadly too many people quote a whole lengthy pic heavy post and then just add a comment like 'Sweet' or 'Nice scooter' etc and we get page after page of the same pics just for a few short comments. :norton

    The biggest drag meet of the year for over this part of the world is on tomorrow. I've raced at Nationals meetings every year for the last 22 years........except for this one, the damn Vmax seems impervious to my feeble attempts to fix it. :cry

    However, all is not lost! SOMEONE has to tow around all the dragbikes after a run, so I'm crewing for a mate on his 8sec no-bar 1984 GSX, as part of a cunning plan to be part of the action. I intend to wear my cool "Vespa 90" T-shirt, and tow back 3 or 4 bikes at a time with my trusty scoot past the 20000 spectators. I'm gonna be famous! :rofl

    Here we are, fuelled up and ready to ride the 350km t the track at dawn tomorrow........

    ........and notice the most important things necessary for the ride.
    A helmet with auto sunglass function, a comfy jacket for the trip, and of course, the coffee!
    HAHA! It's all good! :freaky

    Yeah, 250.
    I prefer the 400s, an extra inch in the legroom and a bit more grunt, but really this 250 does it all for what I want.
    60-70000km from now when it's gasping, which is really only 5 years away, I'll probably get a 300/350.
    They're pretty capable these things.
