I have to say that after a multitude of changes, fixes and tinkerings that have spanned 4 years, I finally have this little BladeZ the way I wanted it form the beginning. And, I have the forum to thank for it. It is now about 10% original, but isn't that what it's all about! I took it out for the first real test ride today and was blown away at the torque and acceleration...just what I wanted from this particular scooter. My big E(36)48 is faster and more refined for getting around, but this "Electrical Banana" is just for fun...and that it is. I can easily lift the front wheel and with a little practice feel like a kid again. But, I'll take it easy as I've seen some of the road rash you younger guys have experienced. These are the last pictures of this project I'll be posting...PROMISE!
Thanks again to all who helped!
