    Traditional method would be sheet metal, formed with a thing called an english wheel

    I had not considered vacuum forming my own - I'm not entirely sure how to do that. An interesting thought though. I'll rig up something to protect the electronicals temporarily while I figure out what I really want to do with it. At the moment its an ugly mess lol but it runs and drives and stops when you tell it to - can't ask for much more than that.

    If you're concerned about body panels, don't be...if you need reassurance on that, take a gander at the Honda Ruckus and its various Chinese clones.

    Have you considered vacuum forming your own body panels?

    lol not italy - georgia US. Between amazon and ebay I can usually find a good deal on just about anything.

    Except those gods forsaken body panels which apparently were made in secret factories with unicorn horns - and can't be found anywhere anymore.

    I've found that amazon has good prices and free shipping on most parts. I can pretty well completely rebuild the engine for about 100$. I'd say thats reasonable as long as its not something I have to do every year lol. I just wish I could find body panels.

    Around here the insurance cost would turn you off wanting any scooter that doesn't have peddles.
    I looked into insurance around here - its nothing. At most 140$ per year.

    ... Just for a hoot I priced out insurance for that bike and me riding it just now, I theoretically get the cheapest insurance available here.
    Came to 476$ per year for minimal coverage.

    If I get it road worthy probably wont take me long to put a couple hundred miles on it to test that 2100 mile ceiling lol. Down side to living in the middle of no where everything is far away. Where I live very rarely sees snow and it never sticks around. These people freak out about a light dusting and some flurries its unreal.

    Is made in china besides 2100 miles is pretty far to ride a little scooter in a part of the world that sees snow for a third of the year.

    I will look into that for sure - I know very little about this scooters history. The vin tells me its an 08 and all but beyond that I dont know at all what sort of mess its been through for wear and tear. 1700 miles on it - someone told me these engines don't last much longer than 2100 miles. Would you say thats typically accurate? 2100 seems really low.

    Drive belt looks to be the most disposable part on the bike, you might want to get a spare or new one of those.
