Thanks guys. Ill crack it open over the weekend maybe and photograph the insides to show more detail about how I did it. I need to upgrade a few things anyways and fix a couple of questionable wire splices. Thing also rattles a little bit over bumps and it annoys the shit out of me. Still need to mount the horn too. And after that Ill try to post a video of the thing in action. Just to silence those who might dare question my sincerity. Cuz your boy dont fuck around!
And thanks for the kind words homies. I really appreciate the acknowledgement and compliments. Ive got an unfair advantage over most people though...Ive been doing custom cars for years. Aint my first rodeo, ya know? And I aint doing nothing that yall cant do. Aint nothing to it but to do it. And if you fuck it up, do it again till ya get it right.
When I joined this forum I came to learn, of course, (and I have learned A LOT from the members here. Thank you)
but I also came to share what I know and give back. I wasnt born knowing...well....really much of anything at all. None of us were. We have to learn form others and train our minds to eventually be able to teach OURSELVES through curiosity and trial & error. And most people just need a little direction and confidence boost to get started. I remember when I saw my first lowrider car cruising down the boulevard. I was beyond inspired and so curious about how it worked. It was the coolest thing I had ever seen. I needed to know how to make one of my own. Thank you Dave and Gilbert for showing me the ropes and believing in me. Shit, that was 17 years and 10 builds ago. Time flies.
Because were dealing with scooters, I figured there might be some younger dudes on here or guys that dont get their hands dirty too often. And I want to inspire these people in particular because I feel like this country (especially Los Angeles) is getting too soft and dudes aint building shit and fixing shit like they used to. There is a national shortage of automotive technicians, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, welders..etc...Im not hating on white collar guys or designers or bankers or salesmen or nothin like that, but if guys dont get the fuck out there and build shit, there aint gonna be nothing to sell or design or finance. More dudes need to learn how shit fuckin works and be able to fix it and build it and take pride in what they do. Our fucking country is getting soft, man. A lot of dudes cant even mount a spare tire or install a light switch. Thats insane to me. I thought maybe joining a fucking scooter forum would give me an avenue to inspire some youngsters or get some website designer off the computer and into the garage for a few. People come here to try to have a cheap scooter. I want them to leave having a dope, custom, super fast scooter they built themselves. Thats why I take the time to post. It aint about ego, its about the appreciation of dirty hands and the confidence to take on any job in front of you.
Anyways blah blah blah thats my 2 cents. Shit sounds like a Home Depot commercial or some Donald Trump inaugural speech. But, fuck man, I mean it. Im just trying to say I tried, ya know? SO....Heres something even better than my ranting and unsolicited opinions about the American workforce....a sneak peek at my latest scooter build! Its still in its infant stages but you better believe its gonna be BADASS when Im through with it. And yes its an m365 deck and yes thats an air tank sitting next to it, and yes those are 2 1000 watt controllers underneath it. Thats all I have to say about it for now. Ill post in the appropriate category once i make some progress.
Homies!!!! Lets build some shit!!! Goodnight.
