This is part 4 of my catchup videos showing progress on my fatty/stretched yamaha Neos project.
In this video I’m building the stretch frame which should give the scooter that stance I like so much.
The frame, whilst simple in concept was actually quite fiddly to make, but I think it turned out ok.
The frame is tacked together with a MIG welder and then all the final welding and reinforcements are done with a TIG welder.
The bike is a 2002 Yamaha Neos, 2 stroke, 50cc Minarelli engine in a stretched, “fatty” style. It’s a regular yamaha scooter with much of the plastics removed, 7×12″ rear rim from a mini-classic, it’s stretched by 18″ and lowered, on air-ride.
This bike is actually coming together now so I thought I’d post a bit of a catchup sequence. It’s ended up being several parts though covering the main challenges I’ve had with it so far.
Thanks for watching, next part to follow shortly, please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE on youtube or here to see more 🙂
