True to my word, from last video: I did not give up.

Here's some more progress from stem swap, custom carb mount, caliper clean, custom throttle housing fit, Friday frame "unbend" attempt, leading up to a Saturday spray and paint.

Ya haha.
"How come it's easier to turn left than right? Why are the bars doing that "tank-slapping" thing when I hit bumps?" The answer is always a let-down, "somthin's bent". It's ok, my jog came with a bad fork, had to swap to a weird tng vino-like front setup. Now I'm worried to let my girl ride it :/

ya those tng venice setups are just as bad, stock vino's is woeful.

still haven't figured out which cpi scoot these disk forks came off of, but they're a step up for sure. even with bent frame lol
