Another issue: the stem attachment is quite different between the two. The Chinese use a pin through a hole in the stem (see previous photo). The Honda folks machine two grooves down alongside of the stem -- needless to say, one is much cheaper than the other to implement (can you guess which one?). If I decide to keep the Honda-style stem mount, then I will need a new stem head to bolt the handlebars to. Well, turns out there is a vendor for that right here in the USA. See: https://scooterswapshop.com/products/honda-elite-aero-bar-clamp. Not cheap, but at least I have options. Looks kinda sweet too. P.S. Note the machined pin in the stem shaft hole.
