Another bike saved from the trash heap.... even if it is a scooter.
This little two-strokin' ground pounder is sure to turn some heads. This bike was brought in by a pretty little lady who just wanted something cool to cruise around town on. The request from the customer was "get it running right and make her look pretty". After a much needed refinish and a lot of tinkering, we think we gave her exactly what she wanted.
