    Yeah, that's for the late models after serial VBB1T 71001. Smile
    I however have to be:
    1) Picky
    2) Stupid enough to buy a scooter that isn't complete!

    Updated update: Forks are in, sidepanels on, headset is on, stand is on, tank is due to be done as soon as I get a fueltap tool... Front wheel is on...
    The only shit is the rear brake drum... For some reason or another it seems to be rubbing against the dust cover, meaning as I tighten the wheel onto it to make sure I don't die, it's like having permanent brakes on. Anyone know how to rectify this?
