 Post subject: CH250 Spacy/Elite Skelly Aussie Style
PostPosted: Mon Sep 11, 2017 5:35 am 
Hi,

Am new to this Forum so still trying to suss out how it works.

I have gone skelly style with this ch250 Known as Spacy over here, but you all may Know it as Elite 250.
I appear to have limited access at this stage so if you can let me know how to change this please do.Also best way to share fotos as I had to open Flickr acct for this post -if there is a better way let me know.
Anyways about my scoot-
Is modded along the lines of its purchase price $31 @ 25 $US.
Has LED blinkers at front
Fireblade Seat
Razer (Kids scooter) running boards
Dr Pulley sliders
Aftermarket shox with correct bushings ie no shimming or extended bolts.
Twin headlights with shortened radiator mount- closer to steering stem.
No slop in engine mount/swingarm rubber bushings replaced with Full bearing races.
CBR600 replica mudguard
Braided front brakelines.
Rear brake relocated to left handlebar.
and we've only just begun.


Yes cost me $31 charged battery gave it a solenoid fresh petrol and started in about 10 secs
33000 km's (@20000 miles) on speedo so feels strong.
Not yet registered as my club felt it's not quite "original "in its appearance
Will focus on further improvements when on road and all is good riding wise.

Feel free to let me know what you think


ps is called Abomination to piss my club off.

Use imgur. There is a how-to in the how-to section.

Looks good. How does your club work? I know when I lived in Melbourne the biker clubs were really just fronts for organized crime (you didn't even have to have a bike to join, just a nose for crime (pun intended))*. But those were the outlaw clubs. I imagine a non-outlaw club could ride together.

Most scooters on this board look nothing like the original bike. That's kinda the point for some. Is it hard to get japanese parts?

Looks good. Glad to see some decent scooters down under.

* biker gangs sold alot of speed.

you need to make distinction between biker and bike clubs.
There are many clubs for specific interests ie Jap, old brit etc.
I am a member of VJMC which has branches in USA.
Anyway we have "club rego" scheme which allows you to rego a 25 year old car/bike on greatly reduced cost.You need to be in a authorised club to use this scheme.
In regards to "biker" clubs there has been much effort to extinguish them so they really are outlaw clubs.
AFAIK this may be the first skelly over here and so far it is mostly confusing people.
In regards to parts we have a couple of spare ch250s which we got cheap and all were running etc Main pain is fairing panels with crash/age damage.
