#japstyle Rusty the Yammie Scorpio
« on: Feb 18, 2017, 19:57:10 »
So I sold Bender by rat whatever Honda Transalp.

I have down graded. Bought a 2007 Yamaha 225cc Scorpio that has already had a full makeover.

This is how it arrived yesterday.



The previous owner bought a bog Scorpio and gave it to her mechanic and said have at it. He had the tank hand made in Bali out of an old diesel drum. Stripped it right back to as you see it.

Within 1/2 hour of it being here I had taken it for a short ride. Came back and took to it in a small way.

Changed mirrors (These are temp ones), moved the seat back and fitted smaller tail light.

More changes to come.

When you buy a bike that has already been customised the challenge is to make it your own.
Accepted the challenge.
Made a small fairing out of some old body work from a Gilera scooter.

Photo shoot time for Rusty. Found an old abandoned Cold Storage plant to shoot at.
Also added a slimmer longer rear guard to keep the water off the air filter.

Some rusty old nails, a tig welder and some needle and thread and Rusty is branded.
