Yamaha NEOS 2002 stretched / “fatty” build – part 1

 

This is a quick catchup clip for my yamaha neos 2002 stretched “fatty” build. It’s a regular yamaha scooter with much of the plastics removed, 7×12″ rear rim from a mini-classic, it’s stretched 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.

This is the first part which goes from arrival of the bike, a bit of an overview of roughly where I’m heading with it and a look at some of the components.

Then we’re on to stripping the bike down and figuring out what to do with the front part of the frame so that I can get the look that I want.

Thanks for watching, next part to follow shortly, please LIKE and SUBSCRIBE to see more 🙂

I do find it a little sad how it went down in the end since I’m a fan of both shows, and I don’t think RR really showed his best side. But hey in the end I reckon the best team won – and that’s racing. Props to the whole 405 crew who made the Crow #2 happen. You rock! 🙂
