Yup. Already have a buyer for it.

This is where she stands right now. Waiting on the seat, tank, shocks, and a replacement rear axel. The one I got from treats had a weird cut in it and they are sending me a new one.

I put in sealed bearing on the wheels and got some wider pedal arms. The left arm did not fit on my pedal crank due to the spacing difference, but the right side fit which was important because the kickstart setup is so much wider. I even had to bend the arm out to get it to clear. The left side will just get the stock arm back on it. It should clear the pipe or I will bend it out a bit. Don't like bending pedal arms but I could not find a better solution.

The forks were not able to be removed which is why they are seen attached to the frame during sanding and painting. Turns out that someone broke the key off in their fork lock when it was engaged. So. They just forced the handlebars to turn and brake the lock. This caused the threaded shaft to get a knarled bit of steel from the force of breaking the lock. It prevented the tube from groping out of the frame due to the bearing cups. The bearing cups could not be forced out with the fork tube still in the frame head tube so a decision was made and now I have some sweet orange forks. Rather than some much safer and shiny chrome ebr. But who wants safe on a moped anyway.

For now while I wait on my parts, i have a ssxl that needs a rebuild and lots of go fast parts added. I will probably share some tidbits from that as well.
