Is that a speedometer from a bike? Hows the headlight working without moving on the handlebars to aim it in the direction of travel?

yeah it's a bicycle speedo, but i checked it with gps and it's accurate to +/- 1 km/h. i don't have an issue with the headlight going straight ahead as my last scooter had a stationary mounted on (actually it was a pop up and pretty cool looking) and i didn't have any issues. not that it actually throws off enough light to see anything anyways (stupid 6v!)

Is that 70KM/ Hour tape I spy on that seat? We can fix that if you'd like!

Looking to borrow/ buy a heavy duty sewing machine. Kenmore just won't cut it.

Nice looking machine. Are you putting on a front fender? Probably doesn't need it because it never rains here anyway!
