 Post subject: Peacock88´s Norwegian fatty zoomer!! FINISHED PICS ON PG 8-9
PostPosted: Sun Nov 15, 2015 3:20 pm 
Bought my zoomer back in august this year. I had occasionally seen some rucks on instagram and wondered how people built them. I thought they look awesome and wanted one myself. Here in Norway the zoomers are quite rare and therefore always expensive when someone sells them.

I was lucky to find one online for $750 a bit beat up and lots of miles on it. The speedo said 36 000km!.. YES! 22 369miles. The previous owner said the motor had been swapped some time before he bought it because the mounting points for the center stand had broken off on the previous motor. Totally meaningless if you ask me..

Anyway it started right up and runs perfect so I´m happy!

I have some experience modifying stuff. My first scooter a Yamaha neo´s back when I was 16-17 I modified a littlebit and gave it a full paint job. After that I had a 2009 Vw scirocco that I modified a bit, anyways I like making stuff and building stuff so this is a perfect small hobby now that I´m a student.

Here´s a pic of it. I got the seat reupholstered to a light brown/tan-ish color. I don´t have a pic of it though.
Image

I have lurked the forums for months to plan the build. I will try to finish it for the summer season 2016. Well I guess it never will be finished :lol:

Here are some of the parts that I have collected by now. More will come in definitely!

Shinko whitewall and low profile Kenda tire.
Image

Wheels from machinedmachines. My own cad design based on the Centra type 7 wheels from the 80s. Some black metal valves and I printed the shop manual to have on hand.
Image

Mojo mount, longer cables, back hub, and some yellow lamin-x to the headlights.
Image

Handlebarclamp, some small led blinkers for the batterybox, handlebar mirrors, kick, led relay, grips, honda emblem and a small bottle I want to convert to the coolant reservoir. The handlebar itself I found in the metal trash at school and it was 22mm so I was quite lucky. Bent it a bit on each side. Its probably going to be black.
Image


Next up is front disk brake kit, front hub, levers, gas tank cover, rear brake light and signals, front fender, rear fender and propably a lot more!

I was looking at colors and since turquoise is my favorite I want to go that way. I see that many have done this, but in Norway I won´t see another custom zoomer so I´m not worried about that.
Went to a car paint shop to check some colors.
Image

I´m going to lower the seat frame myself in the metalshop at school, and paint it myself in the paintbooth at school.
I hope I posted in the right section now, please move if its not the right one.

Ørjan.

Took the zoomer into the basement today. Started taring it apart. Did a small job. Took of the headlights, washed them and applied the yellow Lamin-x.
I was a bit concerned about it laying down on the double curved glass. I have struggled with it before on car headlights, but it went fine and layed down nice. I cut along the first border on the glass to get a nice edge on it.
Lamin-x claims the small amount of haziness(glue) will go away ones they get used and gets a little hot. Looks okey for now.

Disassembly is going fast. Haven´t had any big problems as of yet.

Here is the current state. Going to do a mock up on the mojo mount probably tomorrow to see if everything works out. (Please excuse my messy basement)
Image


Bag and tag is going to save me some work
Image

Thinking of blasting this the try to polish it up. If I´m not satisfied it will be painted.

Edit: Changed hosting site since photobucket is painfully slow and their app is shit.. Imgur from now on..

Soo! Hit my first bump in the road. I can´t get the long engine mount bolt of, not even the nut. Is it held on with some kind of loctite? Put all my weight on it and it won´t budge.

Worst case I cut the nut with the dremel... Any suggestions?



Ørjan.

I´ll try a electric impact gun to get the nut off before I try to cut it..


Drilled out the nuts and mounted the first part of the mojo mount. That went fine.

Then it came to the main mount that should attach to the round cross bar. I quickly found out that the zoomer has some extra parts attached to the crossbar. Namely the ignition coil. It is possible to keep the bracket, but I have to get some grinding tools to get rid of some big welds that are in the way. I also had to cut away some of the bracing, but the coil is light so that´s not a problem.
