Hello everyone. My name is john. Good meeting you all. I'm ordering parts for a 1964 smallframe i picked up 20 years ago when i lived in portland, oregon. These days I move between the Philippines and Washington State.
I swapped out the origonal v50 motor for a 125 prima vera and had a polini build done by Sabatino's in Saint Johns, Oregon (nice shop). I'm returning to the US again in july and was considering a set of s.i.p. handlebar-end turn signal indicators.
The trouble is, i dont have the headset in front of me and dont know if there's a place to mount a turn signal switch.
Has anyone here done this? Id love to see photos. Ride safe.
No it's far from standard, has a ok 125 motor with a 135 kit built by kegra and goes like stink, also a disk brake , painted in light blue with a slight metal flake, if you pm me your email I can send you pictures if you want, as I can't load them to site
Pictures can be a black art here, I know a few people use tapatalk,
I do mine a long and complicated way using the office PCs, no access to that at the moment normaly post on imgur.com and get the link from there But it's complicated
I'm still grounded by my boss till 1st july
Nice. I havent done the disc brake yet but i should. Dont sweat the pictures. What year is yours? I came here looking for more info about turn signals. I dont think mine came with them (1964) but i love the look of signals stubbing out of the handle bars. Just not sure how id mount a switch.
My scoots a modern one a 76. ET3 Disk brake is a big help but I know a few here use a PK front end and brake ( fitting can be a little involved ) But the old standard brakes are crap. They just seem to make the front end dive down while you wait and prey that you will be able to stop before hitting the back of a bus
Gentlemen, we have the technology to rebuild it, we can make the first bionic scooter. a $6,ooo,ooo vespa "visit S.I.P. for details"
