Scooter Part 7 – Progress Update

This is part 7 of my build series showing progress on my fatty/stretched yamaha Neos project (at last!).

Because it’s been so long this is a bit of a general catch up from my camera roll of photos I took along the way while doing stuff, but didn’t necessarily have the energy to film as well.

In this video things are coming together a bit more and we can start to see the bike take shape and become an actual bike that you can sit on and moves under its own power \o/

Most of this video is about working on the frame and lower panels.

The bike is a 2002 Yamaha Neos, 2 stroke, 50cc Minarelli engine in a stretched, “fatty” style. It’s a regular yamaha scooter with much of the plastics removed, 7×12″ rear rim from a mini-classic, it’s stretched by 18″ and lowered a lot.

This is how she’s looking – sorry for the terrible pic. New phone, camera sucks.
