old scooter

I bought this 10 years ago. Done nothing with it. Was sprayed over and bits welded by someone in Spain during its life. Not sure what to do with it.

Re: lifespan of powder coat?

The scooter was done by a very reputable firm/guy. I haven't mentioned him as I am not being critical of him. He post on the lcgb site maybe on here as well. I can only presume the prepping was correct and would believe it was. I have been a big advocate of powder coat but now am having second thoug...

Re: outboard disc kit from beedy

Hi I have just been reading this post. I am considering buying a disc conversion. Did the beedspeed set up work. Are you happy with it. Is it worth buying. I have been on the lcgb site reading and from what I can see the disc system was designed for a bigger wheel, producing too much power meaning t...
