  8. Nice work Hoff. Not sure about the tiny badge, your scoot though:thumbsup:.
    Why not go for a retro front number plate?

    Or a single spot. Like the Eddie Grimstead dealer specials of the 60s:thinking:
     
  9. Lurch third gear will be cruciform needing replacing. Once did one in 20 minutes cos someone bet me I couldn’t on a campsite in France on the way back from a rally in Barcelona. No money… just pride. The guy was Gareth Brown who was the editor of scootering and a number of scooter books. Think there was a pic in scootering but I don’t have it. The engine, however had been spilt previously so it wasn’t difficult. Probably take me a good couple of evenings these days!

  10. The gear selector cables are definitely loose, so I will be adjusting those.

    I was also thinking cruciform. I had a cruciform blow out on my 150 PGO clone in the late 80’s, resulting in a hard lockup at speed in city traffic. I managed to stay upright but sold it after that.

    Fear of the cruciform blowing out is what keeps me from riding this one. I was 19 at the time and probably had quicker reflexes and more bendy bones back then.

    Your project is coming along nicely. Happy trails!

    What we have long suspected has been confirmed, which has been your ability to clone yourself.
    We are doomed, doomed!
