My old friend, have I got a list of upgrades waiting for you!

  3. Install Malossi 15/40 primary drive gear
  4. Install Malossi Kevlar belt
  5. Install BGM Pro reed valve
  6. Install Aprilia throttle position sensor
  7. Install new fork seals
  8. Install Aprilia Racing adjustable rear shock
  9. Install BGM LED taillights w/ turn-signals
  10. Install Buzzetti side stand
  11. Install new grips
  12. Install new battery

Stage Two–Secondary Improvement:

  • Repaint entire scooter
  • Re-upholster seat and reshape pillion
  • Audi-style” Headlight LED treatment
  • Driving lights
  • Remove stock license plate/turn-signal cluster
  • Relocate license plate and illumination

      Hahaha! I wish, Denny.
      So many things I must do before it’s street-worthy.
      When it’s ready, it will be fast and good-looking!
