Hello!
Could anyone make and send me on [email protected] good photo of original left side frame sticker?
Can't find it new and mine is gone, thx to kercher.
Plane to re-made and put it back again, even so it seems silly.

Without good lighting and using only my camera phone this is as good as I could do.
And it’s the first model year. The black framed Scout has white lettering.

Ok I'll ask, why?
[
I got the bike cheap, as a real scrap and erected, like new. Just need the last pieces to complete.
Let's say it's a whim)) besides, it contains a lot of info like oil and spark plugs etc written on the small spot

Must be fairly well off
It was reasonable anyway.
Such bike is 18500 new in my place (Moscow), I spent 6500 for all, IAAI, shipping, parts, restoration (except painting job did it myself).
Besides, it's unique, black Bobber engine + features, Mother Road saddle, Candy Cherry paint, PVCX flashed.
I love what I did.

Love the paint!
If you are not familiar with candy, this paint has great deepness and looks almost black in the dark but with edges flashing red; sunset/sunrise light makes some orange tone to red, and edges, again, like yellow.

Wow! I applaud your effort and result.
That thing looked unfixable to me before you brought it back to showroom condition.

Restoration is my hobby and additional source the same time.
Must say that Scout is perfect for this, for its frame is like Lego.
I just switched the whole rear to Classic without any welding-drilling-sealing.
The only critical thing here is front cast part "legs", they often crack on its middle (from crash bars) or bottom (from controls brackets).

That’s perfect… Almost… You have a typo at the bottom. The word ‘standard’ ends with T instead of D.
Otherwise looks incredibly well done from that picture, I didn’t think it possible to be that good. I guess you could also do a negative for white (or is it gray?) print for black frame Scout.

Thanks! I'll fix it, sure.
And yes, for my black frame I did its reverse picture.
Today I'm gonna try to print on film.

Just got an idea I’m probably gonna create its right side version, dedicated say some Power Vision Tune chart (stock info; achieved numbers info), also I could place some empty cells for seasons mileage for later perm marker filling)) like guys under the hood of my MB car do.

I found another typo if you have not fixed it yet.

Second to last line...

You have an 'O' in LAW.

Of course, Federal low could work.

;-)
Oh my.. I started to learn English 6 years ago, never use translators, and do mistakes(
Thanks, pal, will fix it!
And I kind of agree with you, mentioning all this regulations.. Kind of freedom.. in a cage)
