Happy New Year OldMiniBikes! Attaching a couple pics of my scratch build scooter for the 2014 build-off. The scooter was designed on JD2 software and inspired by exile motorcycles and a vintage 60's era Savage scooter. Based mostly from the savage profile but in larger proportions to the tires and oversized fuel tank. Will also keep the exile styling by giving the appearance of brushed aluminum (no chrome) and black paint. There may be a special twist to this design which will be revealed at a later date. The tires are 16.5x6.5-8 (Kendra based tread design), overall length will be around 56-60 inches, 24" seat height, 32-36 handle bar height. Using a predator 212 and still undecided on using TAV or cent. clutch but will make up my mind once the frame is mocked up and I see how much room there is to work with. Unlike last year's build, I plan to document the entire build on youtube video but will post the monthly photo as required. I will be fabricating using my Lincoln 125 welder, JD2's tubing bender and notcher, and basic grinders.
