Hello there from Adelaide South Australia.

I've got a couple of scooters.  The first project was a Sym Orbit 50.

Bought it cheap as it had a chewed out crankshaft bearings.  Rebuilt it, added a 50mm BBK with bigger carby and it goes well.  The only thing I will do some time is pull the head off and grind a bit more out of the combustion chamber as it still pings a little even on 98 fuel.

 

My current project is a Xtreme Moto Nitro 150.  I bought this one even cheaper in a million bits.  I had to replace the crankcase as it had a big crack down the middle.  This is where I'm at with it at the moment.  It runs but I've got rectifier problems but will post about them in the electrics section.

This is what it will look like when finished.

Yes on the original build I tried a thicker gasket but then my timing chain was too short, so I had to stick with the original thin metal one and got out the trusty dremel.  Just need to chop out a bit more. Even with a thicker gasket I think I still would need to grind some out as I was using the original 39mm head.  

The same dremel I used to grind out the case for the cylinder to fit.......case borers phttt:grouphug:
