Presenting my scooter

Hi! This is my scooter. It's based in a 150cc Chinese GY6 motor, manufactured by Lifan. I have it since 2004 (when new), and I have made some cosmetical changes to it.

This is how it started... it should be my wife's bike... she used it for less than a year, then she prefered to use the car.



When she decided not to use it, I sold it to a friend. When I got back the motorcycle, 6 months later (due to some business) the motorcycle didn't have the plastic in good shape (all of them stretched with masking tape, o plastic straps), so I decided to take everything off:



This is how it looked with everything of (I also rewired the bike completely, cause a big short circuit made a small fire on the harness, burning like 35% of it):



With some ideas on the head (trying to emulate a Honda Ruckus), 1 can of yellow spry paint, and an camouflage fabric, it ended like this:



The idea was nice, but I had 2 main problems: Using it on winter (raining season) was a mess, due to the fabric (it wasn't waterproof), and also without fenders... I ended eating some soil from the steets. The other problem was a bit more stategic... having all the internals exposed, it is a lot easier to repair, but... also to steal some pieces, so I decided to cover it again, but everything done in metal. So, almost 7 years later, this is how my scooter looks now:





Comments welcome!

That's quite a contraption! Looks like you've had lots of fun with it over the years though.

Good job keeping her going! Most people just punt that stuff to the trash heap because they don't know which end of the nut to turn.

Evidently you're a troublemaker... because as far as I can see you've gone and created a Ruckus ;)

Nice! Has definite character
