Some random kid who wanted to sit on the scoot and have me take a pic--

the mini fatty doesnt allow for much clearance with this shock-so i had to grind a bit of material away on the shock body to get about 3mm of clearance--not much but enough

the basic making of the home made mini-fatty

i can explain more on the mini fatty later, all thats left is polish the forward frame I guess

well got bored and decided to paint it again and a light polish on the frame. Also clean up some of the body work (tubing work?) I rushed on last time.

Some white off an Cadillac Escalade with rainbow flake and scored some bride material for 20 bucks so i recovered the seat. Crummy pic but you can get the idea. got some new parts coming then i am done with it, I think, until i do the motor swap.

did some more stuff to my scoot. Zach and I decided why spend money on stuff lets try and make it....soooooo. Got rid of the mini-fatty and made a fatty (7inch), sold the ATR extension and made one, shortened the PWJDM kick stand by about 2 inches, repainted gas tank, and put back on stock shock (had a swift death shock) until one i like comes back into stock or I find the airbags I need for the rear, got some boppers, and wasted (or i feel like i wasted) money on some j-speed pop up grips

Props to zach for fixing up my rear $48 dolla fatty (i lost patience trying to get it true).

tentative future plans include some front wheel mounting point lowering, some round kijima front lights or something less bulky than the ones i have, make a proper shock mount, redo or even integrate the seat bracket to the frame then time for new paint again.

then who knows some speed stuff maybe a PC20 and CDI. Wanna go GY6 but just cant pony up the dolla bills. so will try to get some easy bolt ons and see what happens

So pics.


Image
the new extension is something like 11 inches, super easy to make but it does require welding, and some grinder love to clear in places.

Image

the fatty is a 3-4 ATV wheel with the stock brake drum in it. also painted it black with rainbow flake--but cant see that as there is not sunlight on it. the tire is a 130/90-10 bopper stretched on to the wheel...gotta love having to use ratchet straps to get a tire to bead up :banger:

Image

Image
sucks the thing is sooo low I scrape the kickstand on sharp turns....scary to say the least

Image

Grips are kinda cheaply made should have gotten some uber sweet MT bike ones. And yes i know everyone will be asking "is that a custom brake lever?" yes it is....I crashed it broke I took a grinder to the other side to match ha ha ha

Lame, I put the white ones on mine... was hoping for more for the $$. You're right though, they do feel a bit cheaply made.

I was just looking through your thread and noticed the swift shock. I'm glad you got rid of it. Too many people getting fucked up with those. Bike looks good man, I like the white way better than that olive green.

thanks. Never thought about it as panda style.....but true I guess. As for wheels on the scoot or the car. No ha! Simply cause then I would need to buy more which means my wife would be pissed.
I don't like my wife pissed :D
