Here’s pretty close to what it will look like when finished.
My goals during the build:
- lower – I’m only 5’6″ with a 30″ inseam, so the stock 37″ seat height is going to be a problem.
- longer range – the 504 engine I’ll be using returned 60+ mpg in the MZ Saxon Country I once owned, no reason this shouldn’t be able to get close to that. The tank that came with my chassis is only 2.2 gallons, so will be replaced with a 4.6 gallon “desert” tank.
- More comfortable – better seat and maybe a small screen of some sort.
