If your gonna do a naked scooter why not do a cheap Chinese scooter?.............
Because I dont want a cheap chinese naked scooter, I want Yamaha quality. I am going to catch hell for saying this but I do not like the Zuma very much. I especially do not like the way is sits in the seat with me on it. I am a big guy and I always feel like I am being pitched forward by the Zuma. Also there is not near enough legroom for me. I figured a naked Zuma would allow me to change the seat and leg room. There are lots of parts options for the Zuma too. I know a naked Zuma will never look NICE like your scoot and the other badass Zumas around here, but I am OK with that.
I doubt I will hack up this perfectly good zuma, I just do not have the time to make it into what I want it to be. I think a Ruckus swapped with a 2smoker is a much better platform for me to start with, but I do not have a Ruckus.
My efforts to sell the Zuma, and some of my other scoots have not worked out so far.
I really, really like my Kymco ZX50 and my favorite scoot,the Naked ZX50. Both of those COMFORTABLE scoots use the Kymco built SC10 engines which are a partial copy of the Honda AF16 engine. We have seen, and are currently seeing some EPIC builds unfold in front of us using the AF16 engine platform. I have several spare SC10 engines, I would love to build a Super badass motor. But I will have to settle for something within my reach, like a 100cc+ Tadia LC build or something.
I am seriously contemplating selling EVERYTHING I have except the SC10 based stuff. Hopefully it would allow me to focus better on one project platform instead of being distracted by all the different projects I start and never finish.

Can I suggest a vino? Or maybe a clone of one, a tng Venice? Those are pretty comfortable, and fairly common. A zuma is just kind of expensive imo to strip down. But whatever. I got dibs on anything you pull off the zuma haha.
