let me know what you think of that helmet and how low profile it is. I am looking at the black/grey/white union jack one to add to the collection.

Where did you get your threadserts for the seat? Do you think just drilling holes and welding bolts onto it as a stud would work the same way?

And do you have any good pictures of how you mounted the electronics?

I got mine from McMaster Carr locally, but they're just 1/4-20 aluminum.  You can buy a cheap tool and a selection of inserts from harbor Freight.   I was just out of that size from my kit.   Welding would work, but this was far easier for me and allowed everything to sit flush.  The pic I [osted a few pages back is the best I have.   I basically laid everything out off the bike, traced each compontent, then cut out a piece of velcro to fit.  If the part had bolt holes (like the rectifier) then I bolted it on.  Light stuff like the flasher relay is just held on by the heavy duty velcro.  All the wires are taped and ziptied so nothing is going anywhere.

Besides your CDI and battery, what else is mounted under your seat?

Some of you CA guys will know what a relief this is, but I finally got my plate/title today.  Only took 3 trips to the DMV and one to the CHP to get it done.

Very nice scoot man, I really love the seat and the overall proportions. Good job! So did you stick to your initial  <$1000 budget?  ;)
