I haven't spent alot of time scootering or tinkering recently. Right in the middle of winter and too ball freezingly cold at the moment to be indulging in much garage time.

I thought i'd share my most recent 2 wheeled acquisition... At least it's a Honda, so it kinda belongs in here somewhere ;)


Now, that looks awesome!

The entire assembly is hinged under the engine. Quite the Deluxe model with torque converter, lights, horn, 10-inch chrome wheels. Found to be a 1971.

So.. this happened today:

Image

Most of the white panels in the photo should be pink though. They are the original panels, but the sun faded the pink into white. I changed the oil, basketized it (until the pink top box comes in) set the tire pressure, and then rode it all day. The Buddy 125 user manual calls the scooter a PGO Ligero 125, and the underside of the battery cover has the PGO logo molded into it. The key also has PGO molded into it. It is light and fast and stops well. After riding a PGO Ligero 50 in Bermuda last month, I'd been watching craigslist for a Buddy 50, when this Buddy 125 bit me.. what a bad disease..

1986 Honda Rebel CMX450.
Took about 3 weeks to remove carbs, order parts, change tires, new battery, clean and reassemble carbs,
re-install carbs, replace petcock, new fuel lines, remove carbs again, clean again, re-install,
reassemble airbox & battery box,....and after all that, currently in the process of shake-down rides
and idle air adjusting. Oh yeah, added an OEM sissy bar...thinking leather bags for necessities.
So nice jumping on a 450 after limiting myself to the tiddlers for a while.... :rock:
