Re: Stainless or plated fixings?

Hmmm... I have used stainless in the past for certain items where it would seem to make sense. But I've never gone overboard for it to the extent that I would fit out an entire scooter with it. Maybe that's the key.

Re: Oh I've had it.

Yeah there comes a time, maybe there not for you? but a modern auto really takes the stress out of Scootering and once someone like yourself has been there done it and got all the medals why worry?, you got nothing left to prove, just embrace and relax...

It's a nice find. As interesting in its way as a top model, if you ask me.
