PostSubject: Silverwing Decals   Sat Mar 26, 2011 8:06 am

Well I finally finished the the tupperware. I added decals, repainted the front fender " my puppy used it as a teething toy" painted the leg wind deflectors and finally finished the side case paint job. The main reason I added the decals was because I got tired of peolple asking me what kind of scoot it was and fast would it go. Funny most people say: what will it do 40 mph. Now hope fully with the 600 decals I wont be asked that anymore. Let me know what you think.
Now all I want to add is a hit clutch and maybe cruise control. Pics are in my album, cant figure out how to attach them here.

Looks super! Where did you come up with the side bags, and how are they mounted. I would suppose they would cut the gas mileage down...

Looks very good.

Been thinking of doing similar for a while now for nearly the same reasons.

There is a good choice on Flea Bay, and Google shows a good selection. Which has been my problem, too much choice - creates cerebral overload!!!!!! Laughing

Hello Randybuck, Is the black item near the muffler an additional footpeg for the passenger?

Thats a really nice looking bike. Maybe DennisB can put it in the forum page when it is time to change bikes. I'm very curious about the sidecases too. I was searching around last night for sidecases and it seems I had to buy one side from one company and the other side from another company.

Does anyone here have 1 site that sells everything for both sides of the SWing? I bet that thing really is comfortable with the nice seat and all the storage. Looks great.

Thanks for all the nice comments. The seat is a heated Russel Day Long and yes its extremally comfortable to ride on.
I just tried to make this scoot mine, I like to be different, and Im pleased with it. But up close it does have flaws the pics just make it look better.

Nice job Randybuck,

You have solved a mystery for many of us with the side case mount! When you get a chance please give us all the details. The additional footpegs was also an idea I wanted to try, thanks for solving that one too!

Teaser: Sidecase mount was adapted from the givi pl-532 mounts (his picture below)

Thanks... The side bags are pretty cool. Dennis, what can you come up with? They would have a lower center of gravity than a top box. I just wonder if they would be worth the wind drag for fuel mileage...

Hello Randybuck

Great job adapting the Givi hard cases. Thanks for the photos & details.

It appears that there are two rocker switches mounted in the left side panel (the one that covers the ECU & Relays, etc). What are they used for...and won't a passenger's leg inadvertently trip a switch?

What size are your decals? They look perfectly fitted. I'm about to order some myself and swipe your idea he he. Looking at silver chrome ones though from the source listed by joncallihan.

Would that be ebay and not flea bay or were you just playing with words?

If you go to any store that makes signs, they can make you what ever you ask them to make. I had some 600cc decals made that I really like.

The scooter looks great and decals really set it off. I get the same questions with my wing. Most call it a moped! LOL I used to get a bit upset, but now I just agree with them & smile. We know what they will do.
