Most excellent Guzzitaco
I have a 74 R90 I'm modifying and I like a number of the builds- lots of great ideas. Keep them coming if you can!
I'm still researching frame bracing, weight lowering, and a rear fender.
I think the semi raised fender of a scrambler is practical and is distinctive.

As far as the aesthetics go, a motorcycle is a toy we like to play with, therefore form or function is important most to the owner. I hate choppers, but there are some styling cues that an be practical too. Just love the diversity.

Too bad BMW doesn't do some retro scrambler bikes a la Triumph.
The old scramblers were pretty bad dirt bikes. Anything we make now could be a vast improvement just because the suspension and tire choices are so much better.
