Hey Guys I know I got one build going but at the same time I recently picked up a metropolitan for cheap! When I went to get it the owner said that it wouldn't start for him... I paid him and then right then and there before I loaded it up I used a battery I brought and it started right up and ran like a dream!
On the way home we ordered a battery online and within a week we were cooking!

Image

I rode the thing until it got a little bit unsafe to ride and then put it away for the winter.

Image


It was during this time that I decided that I wanted to have the Met semi built so I started buying parts!

Image

For now I think I want to do:
Ruck Swing Arm
Aftermarket Rear Shock (I would love to buy some shock tabs to run Ruckus Shocks on my MET!)
Airbox delete
Radiantz taillight
After market Vari-Thinking Polini- Including Gates Belt and Sliders

Here is the Met with the Ruckus Swingarm and Wheel!

Image


AirBox has been removed! Just waiting on a filter and stuff to come in!

Image


I am wondering if anyone knows where I can buy some of these?

Image

They mount up like this!

Image


ALSO I am thinking about ordering a Radiantz how long should I get and what should I use to mount it? Or is there another rear light that is baller!


Eventually I hope to do
Kijimas- Intagrated fender blinkers
Foot Pegs
Paint Job
Aftermarket Exhaust-Hoping HotLap 2
Handlebars+Gauge
LED front headlight
Front disks

I am still in college and I am getting married soon so this will not be a fast build or an expensive build! Feel free to send parts cheap though as a Wedding Present!

So I've been ordering parts and getting together a list of things I need still...

I received my brake cables for the Met in the mail!

Ordered and received a shock adapter from Mike155 Great guy to do business with!

I started making my new intake.... From what I was told from different people and what I've read this is my best bet!

Image

Running a 3 inch UNI filter on the end of it.

I am just wondering, Do I need to keep this? I think it is the PCV solenoid

Image


I was wondering if I could just remove it?

Also I am so confused at which one is my pair valve Is that right by my spark plug? Since I have a 2009 Can I just block it off? Thanks for all the advice!

Just ordered a NYC shock... I was told not to get the low-down because it would rub... so i didn't, The person giving me advice didn't realize that I had the shock mount and that I had an extra couple of inches.
Long story short I ended up cutting up the frame so that i could run the shock without the extension

Dont remove the pvc. It'll help with the longevity of the motor.

This guy came up with a new bracket if you still planning to use a stock rear wheel. Hit'um up. What he came up look solid.

Keep up the good work !!

And now some downtime to work on scooters... I got a lightened flywheel that I am thinking about throwing on as well as a polini Vari. What belt should I be running with the Polini for best performance? I got to install the tach this weekend also and get her tuned in!
