Post March SOTM - Winterizing/Scoot builds
This month's topic will be Winterizing/Scoot builds. Most of the country has been too cold or under the white stuff to do much riding. Most of us have had some form of a project underway over the winter. Lets see who has the most action going on with their scoot. Lets keep the postings to the scoots and the work space. Save the girls for the summer SOTM entries. Photoshopping of any kind will be automatically disqualified. Let the members decide who has the most interesting build. Also post a short description of what is being done. If you post multiple photos let us know which one is the entry.

Remember guys, lets not upset Biomed this month by entering a picture of a hot, half naked girlfriend with a project scooter barely visible and out of focus in the background. :D

after the wreck i decided to remove that huge red square on teh back of olive
before
Image

Image

then i decided that the bucket for the tail lamp was deeper than i thought it need be so i hacked out a bit over an inch and welded the end back on
Image

now its time to cut a big butt hole into olive
Image

and here is the test fit of the frenching bucket with the lamp in it
Image
i still have to weld the bucket in then trim off the extra and get some primer on it all
ok here we go
Image
tail light on
Image
brake light on

Let's try this again, then ...

I'll accept the fact that I was responsible for the failure of SOTM for December, January, and February. It was my fault !! I am truly sorry for my bad influence !! Ha!! Ha!! Ha!!

Did not mean to hurt your feelings. I know you have an entry. I was hoping for a little competition. What can I do to avoid the spam list again? :D

Post Re: March SOTM - Winterizing/Scoot builds
see i should have waited to post my entry
and maybe some one would have posted some simple i rebuilt my engine or i put a bbk pics up

actauly i have even more goodies that came in to add
the new cht guage and i may even pull that off to add a cht/egt guage(i love airplane parts :q: )
im also going to remove the square tail lights and replace them with 2 1 inch diam lights on each side and rewire it all so that all 5 lights are running lights

you can never have enough lights on the back

and i also have a glovebox tray to add
might as well get all this done so i can figure out what color to paint her if im going to chage the color

Maybe you need to have a poll for colors? I would go with something with a little metallic so that is really shines when the light hits it. Maybe keep your classic olive with the metallic.

Harley has a color for their bikes called ... OLIVE PEARL.
To describe what it looks like ... think about the color of the combat vehicles BEFORE they went CAMO ... that color was called OLIVE DRAB.
Same color but with a PEARL finish !!

I was going to repaint one of my black Yamahas OLIVE PEARL ... and then chickened out.
