Ever since I was a kid I have always loved old scooters. However I have never really wanted the responsibility of maintaining a “vintage” machine. I always thought to myself, “why can’t we have the convenience and reliability of modern engineering like a Honda with the class and styling of an old Lambretta?” Recently it occurred to me that as an adult, I actually have the skills and facilities to address this important issue that has nagged me all these years. I am a metal sculptor, and have absolutely no experience with scooters at all. What follows in this instructable is my experience of stripping down a mid 1980’s Honda elite 125cc scooter, and totally redesigning it with aluminum scrap metal.
