My real daily driver: SKELLY MADNESS! !!
I gotta give props where they're due, this scooter has been tried and true, and has been a very reliable DD for the past almost-3 years. ...
1985 Honda Elite 150 ....this is me out @ starbucks right now :)
Like [like] [twothumbs]
Liquid cooled, single overhead cam, doesn't drop valves like an SPI, what's not to like!
(I STILL can't see the shock bolt where the front left one attaches to the swingarm...)
Need more pics and descriptions of what is left off the original bike lol
Mine is missing, well, everything cosmetic-wise, except for the under-grille scoop and the seat. Also added, Hond a Ruckus front and rear blinkers, and brake light
The missing screw, sailor, is a fork fairing screw.
Honda Ruckus controls and speedo
Speedo goes to 40, but this bike does almost 70mph how it sits :) I do like 50-55 on the way to work everyday, WOT right off the red light every time, and still goin strong :)
Closeup helped, couldn't see the black phillips head holding the shock on.
I forgot they tucked it in there on that one.
Ruckus pieces help a lot!
So MANY pieces of body work on those, collision work to replace all the dinged pieces was a real joy.
Here was my previous DD/skelly: a 1987 Elite 150. Gawd I loved this bike, owned it from May 2008-June 2011.
First. ...a stock one
. ...what mine looked like upon delivery, for $300
Sold 3 yrs later for $1k
Drove it like this for a while, because burlap seat
Sweet drag bars, Ruckus controls and speedo (look familiar? LOL)
(These arent Ruckus controls in pic, but I did switch to them)
Had a mean FMF Shorty exhaust, but since I didn't have enough pipe, the can ran too hot and melted the core, but DAMN it was loud
So, put a slightly bigger FMF for an even better sound, ran absolutely perfect after this muffler was installed
Moved this to "Ford Focus Builds & General Showroom".
When I saw you first post this bike before it made me want one. Not sure if I could ride it to work though.
