Yeah it was a stock GY6 50. TMEC BWS. Zuma clone. She's got 47mm BBK in now. Just ordered a new carb and bigger head. Got an 8 inch stretch kit on the way as well. She should be looking pretty sweet when I'm "done". (never done).... Also, my buddy bought a vinyl cutter and I'm having some decals made that say "NOTARUCKUS" to put on the sides somewhere. Probably on the sides of the floor panel. Pictures soon!

LOL! So true. I hate that it's so similar to a zuma. Almost identical. But it was a graduation present and I'm not complaining. I'm gonna do what I can with it to make it look and run better and be happy I have some wheels.
I've seen one up close and they are soooo much alike. Of course the motor is different and the lights are more like the bws 100 with the guard around them. Most everything else though has been copied to a T. I could imagine that some of the body panels would swap right over as well. It's also been said, that imitation is a form of flattery
Someone gave you a nice present, let's see what you can do with it.
At one point I'd actually thought about stretching mine but there's only a handful of options for mine. I did end up buying the Keisler 4 inch stretch but as soon as I got it, i knew that I would never use because I think that it'll end up twisting. There's just not enough structural strength. Another (expensive) option was the 6 inch hurricane stretch sold be WeBike. Too much money and by then I was starting to change my mind on which direction I wanted to take my build, which is a street-able circuit bike.
Anyway, to me, the best looking stretched zuma had the gy6 150 strapped to it. Somehow that irritates me. Sorry, but I have a lot of contempt for Chinese motors, and that motor in particular because I've seen so many of them with bad crank bearings after just a few thousand miles. The exhaust pipes on them are prone to breakage as well. That's unacceptable to me. The gy6 50 on the other hand holds up much better for some reason. I know this because I used to own a scooter repair shop here in Vegas.
Ultimately, it doesn't matter much though what my opinion is because it's your scoot and what makes you happy is really all that matters, right?
I'll find that pic of the one I like and post it when I do. It actually looks pretty sick.
Man. they look so nice! How can people say the body doesn't work well with a stretch? Complete poppycock. I could have gotten a ruckus but everyone has a freakin ruckus. I'll have that stretched bracket by Tuesday. I'll post some pictures when I'm done. The bracket was custom made for me. Cost me $85 shipped. Fits any standard GY6 50cc frame/engine.
