Electric starter, I mean.

It is indeed CDI, so that is good. I feel like the met came with electric start and kick start...but dunno which years/models had which.

Budget & Progress Update:

400 - Scoot + packaging and such (shipping still undetermined)
32.75 - Motorcycle torque wrench
25.50 - Spineless manual
-20.95 - Sold manual (made copy for myself)
FREE - Variator roller weights
--------------
438.30 - Total

Still an indetermined amount to be spent on parts, but it looks like it'll be less than 150 worth to get it going.

So that lead to the original owner tearing it all apart? That's odd, I sure hope there's no hidden problems they didn't tell you about.

It was stolen and recovered, hence the missing things that broke and such...

I want to have it shipped on monday, so sometime next week, I hope. Depends on my odd money situation right now.

An interesting page: http://home.venturecs.net/shrocky2/i...p?gopage=metro

I certainly hope to get mine up around 40...if I find it not fast/utile enough it will just speed the process of selling it and getting a rebel or something such.

I was hoping stuff would show up by friday, but it didn't, which makes me nervous...hopefully tomorrow.

I need to resize things before I post pictures (which won't happen tonight), but I'm pretty upset with this guy. The first package was just a jumble of things with no care taken to the packaging what-so-ever. I called him and increasingly less politely told him to do a better job, and I hope he got the message, but we'll just have to see. I hardly have time to put together a scoot much less fight with him because he broke things in shipping or left things out or things like that.

On a project related note though...my girlfriend's parents brought me some of my tools from home so I'm set up to work on the thing, I have the two peices of the subframe together and some other stuff, but I'm still waiting for the bulk of things to show up...It doesn't seem like it will be all that bad project wise unless I need to fight with this fool over things.

Anyway, I'm hosting a very expensive (6k+) speaker through a group I started (Dartmouth Vegan Society) on thursday, so perhaps I will give a real build progress/picture update on fridayish or sometime this weekend. If something really excites me (good or bad) I'll post up before then though.

I'm trying hard to make something interesting to invite scooters/bikers to this site!

Is there no GS equivalent for the scoot/bike crowd?

You could lure them with links to stories such as:

Practical example of the gas savings of scootering instead of driving

(EDIT: the guy's getting 70 mpg)

There are many sites dedicated to scoots, my favorite is urbanscootin.com, but they are more about scootin and many don't even figure out mileage (most just want to scoot and see the FE benefits as an aside or something that just happens).
