I got into scoots by getting a hand me down 86 Honda Aero 50 from habits1979. It had been bought from the junk yard for parts for his 85 Aero 50. I pieced it back together enough to ride.

So then last year I bought an 09 Metro from a older guy in Virgina that used it as his daily. Its started out looking like this. And sorry but all I have are cell phone pics!

Image

Lets see if I can remember what Ive done to this scoot. I bought a ruck swingarm from MopedMotion and it came with a wheel and tire. I put on a longer rear brake cable.
I put a couple hundred miles on it riding around locally and in OC. I bought some parts from advanced auto and NAPA and put together an intake. I put a Polini Hi Speed variator and a bunch of different weight combos. Also a polini belt I have 5.5 gram sliders in it now. I re jetted the carb with a 80MJ
Excuse my shitty broke cell phone camera pic

Image

Then I got ass ended by someone riding my Aero while in OC so I decided to get it painted. Got my brother to mix up some free paint from work and paint it.

Not much to update. I got my stem extender and stem a while back. Finally got around to Mounting the new bar. I still need to put my new grips on and knock off the little tits on the stock controls.

Image

Sorry for all these low light cell phone pics. I need to get this thing outside and get some decent shots. My cluttered ass basement shop sucks.
I need to save my penny's and build my ass a shed to store these scoots in.

Cool color. You trimming the rear plastics? Also, That rear shock is completely compressed right? So its pretty much a hardtail?

Like the rear shock mount.
