Beautiful! More pictures please. What are the specs?

No front spotlight? Honestly I prefer the 'Manhattan' without. Would love blast that across the Brooklyn Bridge and into lower Manhattan :D

Thank you very much! I do have a spare set of Siem Trailmaster spots, you know, the trapezoidal type (SS-headlight turned upside down), I might be using one on this bike... Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan! That's what would have inspired AF! And me... :-D specs and pics to follow...

Very nice. I have to agree though, I'm not a huge fan of additional spots on any scooter. They clutter the elegant lines.

Just my opinion though and I think I'm in the minority.

Anyway very tasteful.

Thank you for sharing the additional pictures and the specs. It's an impressive build, and one of best vintage scooter projects I've seen in cyberspace this year. Nice work! :D
