    You guyz crack me up !!!

    Although I doooo have a few ideas..... Get rid of the 4" wheels and go to 8's, A 48 volt motor upgrade and mount the batteries in the tool box with a pigtail to scooter, Place the seat on the back of the toolbox so no spring upgrades needed...... Cow catcher and helmet mandatory equipment !!!!

    Yep..... It's a kick back in the ole lazyboy weekend...... "Rain drops keep fall'n on my head"..........

    Staying dry may be a challenge...already clicked over 2 inches today...
    I was thinking a little more radical on the scooter upgrades...
    Maybe the drivetrain from a YZ250...and it will need a good 8 track player...
    You gotta have your Jerry Lee Lewis tapes.....and maybe a few parts from the Tijuana Taxi....

    I figured Daisy Mae would be sitiing wedged between the handlebars..
    And her lil sister Petunia would be on the back to make sure the toolbox didn't pop open...there won't be too much extra horsepower....
    Just a whole lotta shakin goin on.....

    You're right....Didn't mean to scare my buddy. Dutch...
    Retirement should be enjoyable....The modified scooter might be too disruptive for him...now...if we could get him a sponsorship from the local Hooters.......

    OOP's. I guess I left the bait in the water a little to long--now it's turned into a feeding frenzy.:laugh:

    I ran across this unit a year ago and I'm still thinking/dreaming of ways to modify it with a drive train and hydraulic steering. A street level mounted stagecoach type seat would make it quite handy for mobile duty.

    Just celebrated my 53rd wedding anniversary this past week so the Petunias and Daisy Maes probably wouldn't pan out--particularly the types Rob has described in the past. Now, if I could trade in a 73 for a couple of 24's and a 25, of the right type, I might be able to make that work--but not for very long
