Bump for pics!!
How's the beast looking Acey?
I am really really close to pulling the trigger and making my Helix a skelly. A lot of the lower panels are kinda cracked, broken, scraped and otherwise plain old crappy. The rest of the scooter is really nice though. I need some money, and have been looking into selling the Helix, but I would kinda like to get best of both worlds. Sell all the Helix parts I dont need, make some money and keep the Helix.
The only downside is that I kinda like the front end, and the wind deflection it provides, and the trunk space. But I do have a Givi rack/box I could put on for storage, and without the dash it opens it up to any handlebar I want.
I'm thinking you could clean up a lot of the wiring by running it through the frame. Or in nice harnesses/tubes or something like that.
The seat worries me a little (and neither of your guys' pics really show a full, stock seat or with everything totally naked). Does it look too big and out of place with all the panels off? (Not like everything on the Helix is big, awkward, and out of place with all the panels on anyways)
Also, Leo (or acey), is that big hoop around the back tire (trunk support) welded to the frame? Or is that just bolted on? And what all bolt on to the hoop?
FACT: I'm gonna start a new thread called: "NADSCAR - we don't race in the rain..so fuck you"
