What Scooter Mods Have You Made?

I thought it would be fun to create a page dedicated to motor scooter modifications. So... what scooter modifications have you made that have improved on the looks, functionality or power of your scooter?

I've been getting some contributions in other pages about changes folks have made to their scoots. Seems some of you really like to tinker! So, I thought it might be fun to create a dedicated page just for scooter mods.

I'm not really one to engage in such activities much, but from what I've seen scooter modifications might include things like:

Scooter modifications like adding a basket can make a huge difference
  • Changing the paint color or trim work on your scooter
  • Modifying the engine to give it more power or better performance
  • Rehabbing a broken down or non-functioning scooter
  • Adding functionality to the scooter
  • Enhancing the storage capabilities

Those are just examples... you may have come up with even more ideas. Smile

So, come on, tell us what you've done... you know you want to!

Have You Improved on Your Scooter?

What have you done to your scooter to make it even better than it was the day you bought it? Have you added a topcase? Bought a custom seat cover? Affixed a stereo system?

Whatever, you've done... please share it with our community! Please be sure to give us as much detail about what you did and how you did it as you can.

Tell us where you bought the parts/supplies you used and anything else that will bring your scooter mods to life. And PLEASE... include pictures so we can see what you did!
