Re: 67cc big bore for nq50 ??

The choice to modify a Spree engine is a poor one.
The better choice is to modify the Spree chassis by adding a
AF16 and assorted goodies to make it a much better bike in the end
without spending a bunch of cash to end up with a non-variated Spree engine.
imho... :urban:

Re: Help with Value

Value is different from state to state.
NOT running, as is, maybe $200-$300.
RUNNING, with new tires, battery, cables, clean gas tank, $600-$800 most places.
Slightly more on West coast.
I don't want a Spree...ever again.

Re: Graphite9 is back :)

Congratulations on making it all work Brandon. Your contributions to this page, and the scooter kingdom at large, are to be commended. When early efforts resulted in difficulty, you made it right, sucked it up, and did yourself proud. I am very pleased to know this endeavor has moved forward. Welco...

Re: Screwed

By the way, when building this reply, I suffered the same problems as motormike when trying to use the attachment tab to include the four photos. I finally gave up and included the photos using my old reliable method. I always read through your posts Vaughn as you have become one of the premier mem...

Attachments

Since this new format, I have trouble getting more than ONE photo to actually attach to the post.
I have been trying to put 3 images on a post, and when I hit Submit, 2 of those images will disappear.
Who can tell me what I am doing wrongly ?....mm

Re: Aero125 belt question

How does this one look? #66G3081 Gates G Force CVT Belt. 795 x 17 x 30. Pretty darn close to original spec of 794 x 18 x 30. Can get it through NAPA for $41. Service manual indicates original belt service limit to 15.8mm. I would interpret that to indicate more narrow is better than too wide. Start...

Re: Aero125 belt question

That 35 year old OEM belt WILL fail without a doubt. I made the mistake of trusting the OEM belt to make a 200 mile trip. IT DID NOT. I was left on the side of the road after 50 miles or so, on a Sunday, with no possible source for a new belt. I recommend buying and replacing that belt before you al...

Re: Wandering through Japan

Thanks for sharing.... :smile: The one vehicle that will never be sold is my Gyro S. I plan to give it to someone when the right time comes. I <3 that Ruckus being left as a fully suspended, proper street machine. And that Bobby sure brought a smile. I had the U.S. model known as "Champ". 80cc 2T f...

Re: Bike and Pets

My dog Magoo was a blind Jack Russell that absolutely loved to ride in a milk crate. He would tuck his nose up under my armpit to get it into the wind. I wheelied and lost it in a gas station parking lot. Magoo was okay, and continued riding...he really had no choice. His life was cut very short an...
