Polo 6n1 1.4 AEX turbo – I think this may be happening…

So I’ve been umming and aahing about this for a while now. Lots of people saying it can’t be done, don’t bother etc, but also some notable folks who have done it.

The examples I’ve found have varied from very DIY to full “proper” installs…but I think I have a plan to move forward with this in a staged way which won’t require huge investment up front.

I’m still working out the details but I’ve actually started collecting components for the project so I guess it’s maybe really happening.

Yamaha NEOS 2002 stretched / “fatty” build – part 2 – Fuel sender modification

This is a quick catchup clip for my yamaha neos 2002 stretched “fatty” build. It’s a regular yamaha
scooter with much of the plastics removed, 7×12″ rear rim from a mini-classic, it’s stretched 18″ and
lowered, on air-ride.

This bike is actually coming together now so I thought I’d post a bit of a catchup sequence. It’s ended
up being several parts though.

This is the second part. By this point I’ve done most of the wiring, this clip deals with modifying the
fuel sender to work with the aftermarket tacho/gauge…which ended up being quite fiddly, but worthwhile
if you want the fuel gauge to work properly.

Yamaha NEOS 2002 stretched / “fatty” build – part 1

 

This is a quick catchup clip for my yamaha neos 2002 stretched “fatty” build. It’s a regular yamaha scooter with much of the plastics removed, 7×12″ rear rim from a mini-classic, it’s stretched 18″ and lowered, on air-ride.

This bike is actually coming together now so I thought I’d post a bit of a catchup sequence. It’s ended up being several parts though.

This is the first part which goes from arrival of the bike, a bit of an overview of roughly where I’m heading with it and a look at some of the components.

Then we’re on to stripping the bike down and figuring out what to do with the front part of the frame so that I can get the look that I want.

Carenzi wheel adapter woes…

I just got this Carenzi hub adapter today for one of my Yamaha Scooter builds which I was hoping to drill holes in to mount a mini-classic rim for a ruckus-stylee fatty/stretch conversion.

However, having learnt from my past mistakes the first thing I did was take some measurements to check it was actually round, which it turns out it probably isn’t. 🙁

Street Outlaws vs Fast ‘n’ Loud

Couldn’t have said it better…

 

I do find it a little sad how it went down in the end since I’m a fan of both shows, and I don’t think RR really showed his best side. But hey in the end I reckon the best team won – and that’s racing. Props to the whole 405 crew who made the Crow #2 happen. You rock! 🙂
