YEah my scooter functions just fine, but when I was replacing the belt and rollers I noticed the uneven clutch shoe wear.
I WANT A HELIX!!!

When Roxy and I ride the ch80 two up, we are seeing 45++ mph on flat ground. Together we weigh over 300 lbs. Pretty darn quick for a 4 stroke 80
Happy about that, at least. With just me on it it cruises at 48-50.
Been loving the economy. I put a dollar or two in it a week. I've even been splurging on the ethanol-free rec 90 stuff.

I put together a running bike out of the black 99 parts bike. Its now running AWESOMELY. Spent a day or two tuning it and having some fun with it and sold it for a tidy profit.
Still doing R&D to come up with a bulletproof clutch solution for these ch80's.
I'm going to try some Malossi and NCY stuff.
And I'm going to try 8.5 gram rollers and another brand of kevlar belt.

Snow on the ground here, scooter season is over for me.

East coast. Now take that money and get something done on your bus.

I'll be getting back to bus work soon enough.
Enjoying the 80* weather and low gas prices though. Winter here is where its at for working on buses.
I've not had the kind of access to my bus I'd like in the last couple months.
Typical bus storage drama...

Scooters have been keeping me busy and I've been having a blast.
I've got four ch80's and two Derbi's in the garage and carport at the moment.

I just moved my bus again due to no access to work on it for the last year. Now the season is over. Time for me to tarp it over again.

The Aero 125 is a rare one. The last of its kind really.
There's an Aero 80 for sale locally but from all I've heard they weren't the best scooters.

I'm thinking I'd like to stick one of my ch80 engines onto the back of an Express or something, just for fun.

You could always shoe horn a V8 on it.
