 Post subject: 2WD (2 Wheels of Destruction) - Version 2.0
PostPosted: Wed Aug 17, 2011 4:23 pm 
And so today begins with the reconstruction, remake, rebirth, re-whatever of the 2006 Vino 140, also known as the 2 Wheels of Destruction (2WD).

Here's a brief summary and history of the infamous 06 Vino.

Bought it used for $1600 in April of 08, got stolen in front of my work in Oct. 08, recovered in Feb. 2009 and morphed into a 140cc speed machine and good times ever since.

This is the pride, joy and daily driver of the C-Dawg. It went on rides as far as San Francisco, Las Vegas and L.A. and local rides around SD with the bros of O-Side, Southside, and the Total Ruckus Crew from LA on Super Sunday 2010.

Hell, it even lead SuperFadedCon 2010 from D-Town, cruised around Mission Bay Park, Mt. Soledad and eventually over the bridge to Coronado. So many countless rides and meeemories... until one faithful, Memorial Day weekend just this past May.

It was going to be an easy solo ride from Paradise Hills to Ft. Rosecrans in Pt. Loma. About 10 miles into the ride, just passed the airport, it finally met its end due to low oil and started to chug for half a mile and crawled into a near by Ramada Inn parking lot in Pt. Loma. Pretty much cut my trip short by 5 miles from the finally stop.

The diagnostic from a local scoot shop turned up more than just low oil and a spuddering engine. They recommend a whole engine rebuild and replacement of a lot of worn out parts which includes the belt, oil pump, crankshaft, roller weights, clutch and the list goes on. "Daaaaaamn dude!!!!"

I was left with two options from the scoot shop for the Vino. Option one, go ahead with the rebuild and replacement of parts but it will cost me over $1800. That's the pretty much more than the value of the Vino when I bought it used three years ago. Option two... part it out and sell it for parts. "F*** that yo!!!"

Then there's the third option, which is to go ahead and rebuild it, with the help and expertise of other TR peeps (Filipinobrand & Evil-Step-Ruckus), and save it from the true death.

So begins the rebuild of the 2WD (2 Wheels of Destruction) Version 2.0...

It starts with a search... a Craigslist search for used Vino 125s in and around SoCal. For the most part there are a hand full of Vinos intact and for sale at or above $1000. That's all fine and dandy but what I need is the engine intact to save on cost. Ebay has one for $299 plus another $200 for shipping. It's complete but a little higher than I can afford. Then a search in Menifee turned up a used 07 Vino going for $250 on Craigslist. Why so low? About 80 percent of the parts has been stripped off and sold. Only thing left are some panels, the frame, the wheels, seat and the ENGINE. "Hot Damn son!!!"

8/17/2011 - The Pickup
I dragged Filipinobrand along for this quick field trip to Menifee at 530am in the morning.
Image

We arrived, inspected what's left of it, bought it and threw it on the truck. Nothing much to look at.
Image

Finally got back to PH and unloaded it.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Here's the 2WD as her former self.
Image

Getting her ready for the big redo.
Image

The panels will be repainted. No more "Obey" stickers on the redo
Image
Image

To my surprise I got this in the mail...

Can't wait to watch this thread. Thanks for posting up C-Dawg. This is the kind of meat the Vino 125 forum needs to sink its teeth into.

Sad news. On my way to work, my vino bit the dust. Now its hard starting, feels like the piston is soft seized, because it'll still turn over. Currently at the shop awaiting word, it'll be a few days. If they do have to tear into the engine, I'm going to order them the PSR kit as well. I'm hoping its something simpler (read: cheaper) than that.

This Vino was seriously stripped to the bone. There are very little or no extra screws or bolts when we picked it up. Just what you see along with some panels and a fuel tank I didn't take pictures of.

Later down the line, after putting together the 2WD, I may build another one with whatever is leftover.

8/18/2011 - Cutting Out the Meat

Finally we're getting down to business! I am separating the engine away from the skeleton frame of the donor Vino. As I am doing this I will do my best to document/picture each procedure as I go. Why? Because I am not the most technical dude on scooters and I'm sure there are other peeps on the forum who are as technically handicapped. I gotta start somewhere, right? I hopefully this thread will make come in handy for anyone else working on a Vino.

So lets do this...

Getting the donor ready for the engine separation procedure.
Image

Looking for which bolts to remove to make the separation.
Image

And here is where I start removing bolts with a 14mm socket wrench which is first located on the bottom right side of the engine.
Image

Bolts removed. Next...
Image

The other side had only 2 bolts to be removed. The 3rd bolt was probably removed by the previous owner during his strip-o-thon or removal of parts.
Image

DONE!!!
Image
Image
Image

What's left of the donor.
Image

Also removed the rear shock and wheel. Just 125cc of engine only.
Image
Image
Image

This where I will do all the work at the repair bays of the Ruk Riders owned by FilipinoBrand. Thanks yo!!!
