So with the immense heat I've gotten next to nothing done on the bus in weeks.
The afternoon floods aren't helping either.

I have been at work on the scooter... And it now has a friend.
Picked up a black on just like it only 2 years older. Needs some work but got it for CHEAP... as in I bartered a CZ52 pistol for it!

These things definitely have their quirks. I've so far rebuilt or replaced the variator and weights, the belt and the entire clutch assembly on the yellow one and now I'm pulling it all back out to replace the bearings and a shaft in the final drive/transmission! Maddening, but man its a sweet lil scoot. With the new belt and rollers and few tweaks it cruises at 50 all day and can even do 55 if I draft a big truck.
The black one I'm going all custom on. Custom exhaust, intake and jetting. Hoping for 55...

Oh, and I may be looking for somewhere to keep my bus. The guy who was letting me park on his acreage has flaked out and turns out he's a total dbag...
so its a couple doors down at my friends property but they may need me to move it. I'll likely just put it in my yard in town and wait for the possible code letters to arrive. I may be able to keep it, though.

Seems storing these things can be a constant issue if you live anywhere near civilization. Once I'm done building it I can live further away from all that.

I normally don't say this...looks around....you can always move somewhere free....like TN, and get a small pc of property

We have lakes that have no salt in them; we have these hills that are so big we call them mountains, and not all the animals will try to kill and eat you.. .......except, mnt lions, bobcats, bears, possums and crazy bearded cat woman up the hollar

we also have rivers for kayaking and snow (white stuff...urgh...white frozen water that falls from the sky)

and I could go on, and on



just saying

Pics of the scooter?

I ride a 49cc Piaggio Typhoon.

Great on gas. I rode 170km on less than $5 worth of gas the other day.

I knew you and I had SOMETHING in common... Scooters and CRX!
I can't quite explain it but I just LOVE scooters and little cars.

Dang! My Honda TTR 225 only gets 87 mpg.
But...it'll do wheelies.

It will eventually hang of the back of the bus.

I was thinking these CH80's would be good for keeping on the bus instead of having a toad. But an actual moped would likely be an easier fit and would weigh less.
I have a third ch80 that I may be picking up for a hundred bucks. 2200 miles but its been wrecked. Would be good for parts though.
Scooters have been a nice shaded break from bus work.
