I've been considering the look, I kinda like it, but before I totally screw something up, just curious to how appealing scooters like this are. Kinda reminds me of a bike version of a racecar without a dashboard, and only what's really needed, or something. It would free up the area, giving me the ability to improve, things, or ease of maintainence. I don't know what bike I'd need the handlebar and parrs from, though, maybe a Ruckus or small dirtbike?
I like the idea,, post a pic of the original clamp area please
Thats the only pic of the bike I saw. with research, I saw where somebody suggested the use of a mtb/down hill threadless stem, and then there's like the Ruckus, where there's a clamp like most mopeds are. Here's a thread I found on it.: scootdawg.proboards.com/thread/54774
Which one, the mtb one, or the Rukus one? Aside from the sort of "racey look," I think cockpit maintanence would be easier, and it would be easier to get a hold of decent headlights, without constraints of the oem housing. The only other thing is welding the tabs for my mirrors- I'm not giving up my mirrors, they are perfect for the bike.

Getting a good look at the handlebar stem(changing throttle cable); it does indeed stick up above the plastic body, it's hidden under the handlebar plastic.
Aside from handlebars, which are easy to find, I'll need to find some clip-on/bolt-on hi/lo beam headlights, I can use switches with the mirror bolt holes. Importantly; a gauge pod, not too big. I've been without a speedo for so long, I don't care if it's just a Tach, but a fuel guage I'll need. I don't know where to look for lights.
