That empty spot looks like a battery box. The battery is behind the oil tank on the Yamahopper. Yours obviously doesn't have room there. The rest of it looks stock or close to it.

The Yamahopper has gas and oil fill under seat just like that. At least you got a plastic tank that will never rust out.

P.s. You're missing the key. That speedo and key switch are the exact same on the Yamahopper. (Depending on year) later models have the "start" position on the key switch. Earlier models did not have that. I forget the year that changed. (edited)
