    I found a neck the other day and it looked like it belonged on this scooter,so I painted and polished it and it fits the build alot better...[​IMG]This morning my son and I took a couple builds to the local car show and got alot of positive feedback![​IMG][​IMG]

    Re: BigDaddy Scooter "tribute to Ed Roth" Gettin a 80cc Motor

    I picked up a 80cc engine kit with everything but the rear sprocket for 50 bucks! So Big Daddy is gettin a motor and should let it go 30/40 MPH!!! I started making a mounting plate but Im waiting on the sprocket to line it all up before welding...This should be FUN!![​IMG] 8) :mrgreen:

    Re: BigDaddy Scooter "tribute to Ed Roth" Gettin a 80cc Motor

    What if you spun the tank around so it's higher in front and slopes back?

    Whatever you decide, this is gonna be cool!

    Cheers,

    Re: BigDaddy Scooter "tribute to Ed Roth" Gettin a 80cc Motor

    Thanks for all the kind words Fellas!!! I think I will use the tank but I want to cut the pinched seam and weld the two halfs together,move the petcock to the fat side and shorten the filler neck a half inch just to clean it up abit...Heres a couple pics with the tank turned around,I still need the rear sprocket to figure out where everything will get mounted,Im getting anxious! 8) :mrgreen: [​IMG][​IMG]
