Tonight I'm halfway done with the taillight/plate bracket. My cell battery died though so pics are coming later.

Here is an early mockup of the bracket.

Image

Here is also a breather hose, awaiting a tiny filter and a secure location. And since spring decided to throw 8 cms of snow at us last night, I still have time before the riding season...

Finally some workshop time again.
The taillight is assembled into one piece, the light/plate bracket is painted and mounted on the scoot. A new license plate arrived yesterday too.

A CD case donated a piece as a plate light lens, mounted inside the light housing:

Image

So this is how the whole thing looked:

Image

And with the light turned on, looks a bit weird with my cell camera but really good IRL:

Image

I think it turned out rather well! Maybe it would have looked even better a bit lower and to the rear center of the wheel, but it looks all right where it is and has at least some visibility from both sides of the rear. With an extra, hidden, LED-bar for an extra brake light it should suffice for the occasional night riding.
The turn signals can actually be seen on each end point of the small lens, but I'll have to drive like I have no turn signals. Maybe they'll be legally enough if the police would check for turn signals, but as for practical traffic use they absolutely suck.

A few minor things since last workshop session.

A set of breather filters arrived...

Image

And one of them got a mount made and ended up here, with a new steel braided hose:

Image

Yes, the wiring is still a mess...
Finally, I found an unused green LED-light that has been rattling around in my toolbox for years. So with the BB just mocked up I tried out a "ghost light", for when the ignition is turned on:

Image

The green light turned out pretty sweet, where it "leaks" out of the BB. I hope it will look even better in the dark.

...and some stuff from Standard Functions is on their way: a set of extra long rear brake + throttle cables, and a pair of these:


Image

These babies will hopefully let me see traffic from behind while looking sweet tucked into my Texas style handlebar.

A bunch of small stuff came together today, so this is the look right now. Waiting for longer cables, a Doppler air filter, a rear fender idea, rearview mirrors and some minor other things. I suppose this is how it will look when the riding season starts, with a few tweaks and some elbow grease to complete it for now.
Can't wrench all the time - must ride also!

A Doppler air filter mocked up.

Image

Subtle? Not really. But great looks and hopefully decent performance too.

Almost everyone with extended Rucks on TR seems to be running fenderless. In Western Sweden, no no no. Such foolishness shalt be punished. So I chopped, trimmed and can-painted the stock fender so it actually looks quite all right.
Image

The bar end mirrors came yesterday...

Image

... as well as the extended throttle and rear brake cables from Standard Functions.

Image

Hopefully I'll be riding within days!

First ride of the season today!

Image

Still a lot of small stuff to do, but at least the scoot is alive and well. Bring on the summer! :banger:
