    The colour is candy apple red it looks much better in the sun. The hubs are powder coated chrome and the rims are powder coated anodised red.

    That is a nice red ! I wouldn't use the stainless pipe if I were you, they seem to be difficult to jet properly.

    I might use the sip box exhaust they are ment to be better for low torque and touring. I have a high reving motorcycle if I want to rev high. The red is amazing in the sun its a shame its hard to see in photos.

    Stainless steel button bolts and nylon washers for the front mug guard. Before they were just normal cap heads like the two in the pictures.

    i have some pictures if the engine no that many but the cylinder kit i chose was a VMC 177 cylinder kit. The main reason i chose this kit was because the cylinder head sits on top of the cylinder flat if that makes sense unlike kits like the DR kit where the is a groove for the head to sit in.Because VMC head sits flat it will be easier to get the port timings where i want for the longer stroke crankshaft. because when i work out what i can space either the base or both so i can make a head spacer.

    yeah its good condition ish its all there most of the lugs on the body work are broken. wont be long until that one gets restored. i wanted to finish the red scoot first before buying something else but started looking at other stuff and see it so just bought it. it was a 3 hr journey to get it.
