Thanks Bob!

Any idea what to make it more interesting? currently i removed the rims and planning to chrome it and the windscreen had a minor crack which supposed to be replace however god knows where to find the windscreen lols so the plan would be using acrylic sheets, cut it into shape and heat it up then lay on the old windscreen to get the correct shape. that would be just a wild idea, I also found a lot of honda small bikes (or moped as you called em) adjustable springs with absorber for front and rear would fit them snugly, wonder should i replace them or just leave it as it is first.

If the coil over shocks are ok best leave them unless they are obviously shot. ie, no fluid in them. Replacing them with other units can be hit and miss.
