I scored an SE50 parts bike without plastics. So, I've decided to build a naked scooter. Sort of a Ruckus styled Elite.
The build progress is here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/eyuzon/sets/72157626350214757/
Basically, it will have a stock motor with mild mods. I've put a Unifilter, 90 jet, removed variator speed limiter plate, 90/90-10 tires. I only have the 11:1 gears but theoretically I should be good for 45mph if I hit close to 8k. I based it on calculations. Cosmetically, it will have Metro graphite rims, front fork, diamond plate floorboard, MTB stem and straight bars. At the moment the motor is done (honed stock cylinder, mild exhaust porting, new stock piston & rings). After getting it all on the frame, it wouldn't fire due to a bad exciter coil (open). I tore it all down while looking for a replacement stator. Today, I blasted the frame and will have it painted by tonight. I also painted the Metro fork clamp lower, the centerstand, rear handle, stock exhaust, heatshield and the front lower bracket. I've also cut up the harness to clean it up since it will be exposed. Electrically, I removed the turn signals, high beam, oil level & kill switch. Also, I moved the bystarter resistor towards the rear. There was a lot of redundant splices that could be relocated. I'll re-tape it all when it's on the frame and cleaned up. I'll also cut down the big fat stock seat. Maybe something thinner and smaller like the Ruckus. I have yet to pick a headlight and taillight.
