Hi everyone, I would like to know your experience with modding handlebars, installing stems and front ends. For instance I have a honda spree and I don't care for the front end as it doesn't look like it can handle much, what if I wanted to install a better front end, say an NCY or maybe even a tao tao front end with a disc brake. I can't seem to find any topics about fitting a custom front end and would like to know your experiences with doing this. Pics of your build would be cool and would give ideas to talk about.
I've swapped a front end so I could have a conventional fork and disc once. Took measurements and tried to check what I could and started by looking for scooters with a similar style. Some people have cut down stems and otherwise modified them to work on their custom projects.

Thanks for the info guys I appreciate it! I see a few different ways to install handlebars and I'll take pics and post them when I can get to it. I'm going to do this for a tao tao and my spree. The spree might be a little more tricky because if I can't find a front end where the bearings and bearing racers meet/snug up I'll have to weld a new steering tube to the frame, easy enough for me to do as I was a welder/fabricator by trade and can competently attach and tie it in, it'll be fun! BTW I have a 125cc 2t for the spree and it's a from the ground up,custom build, so I'll be able to show everyone how I tackle rigging everything up and getting input from this forum. Not sure what the engine came out of though, it was a Craigslist score, it has KG8L on the fan shroud. I think that's a honda dio? It runs great and has power though that's for sure!
Senna1Rossi: Thanks renagade281!
