These builds are always fun and I've wanted to do one for so long, but sacrificing a good set of helicopter mags (at least stateside) is hard to stomach haha.

I do enjoy that this would use the same rims/tires as my smallframe tho.

Re: Vespa caio scooter build

Super cool. I like the way you adapted the rims too

I'm going to hack up some Banana mags because my Ciao deserves the best.

Has anyone seen a build like this done with Italjet Pack wheels? These scooter conversions are all over the place at swap meets. This is one of the better ones I've seen.

The Pack wheels are too wide for a standard sub. The Pack subframes are like 1.5"+ wider around the wheel.

The rims are from a vespa v50 (9inch)

You sir know how to party

Re: Vespa caio scooter build

Man I hate the concept of turning a sweet moped into a wack goped

But the execution is flawless, so nicely done!

Can you actually ride this on the street? Even in America this would be so illegal.

^^ 49cc no license required

Just because it doesn't require a license, does not mean you can operate it on the street.

I think some places it's more legal. Im not sure but I remember stories of folks in california basically chopping the seats off of 250 maxi scooters and calling them a "goped" and legally there was no limit to how big or fast a goped could be. probably fixed by now tho haha

Yup!! Legal here in Cali! Just ask Jbot about it. Also cops don’t give a fuck about us now especially since there’s a ton of dumb fucks on electric bikes that go 60

I think it would be legal in MN, they call them "foot scooters" or something, you can be I think 12... no lights, no license/or plate and no ins required, and you CAN'T ride it on the sidewalk, you MUST be in the street, gas or electric ok. There was a news story about 5-10 yrs back about kids on these causing wrecks and getting hurt and not much the cops could do, I think it is listed in our MC manual? Freaking nuts, but a moped which IS safe to have on the street needs all sorts of regulation. Government inaction. :) Anyway, that thing is very well executed. Love it. (edited)

Here's my spare Pack2 sub (albeit twisted) you can see how much wider it is at the wheel. The sub mounts are off set to accommodate this typically, so even if you grafted it onto a ciao, your center line would be MAD wonky

Wild. Never had one apart I guess. Is the output shaft of the transmission longer to accommodate this or is the bracket unique?

I haven disassembled the rear hub, but it looks like a standard output shaft, with a big hex spacer to offset the pedal sprocket and bearing holder.
