This one was from Ducati, the Cucciolo.

I love the the Cucciolo , the gas tank , and the head light is what I am looking for , seems to have an tail light too .I will either make one or buy one .that will run off the white wire . The head light looks like an standard motorcycle light . I will need an bulb. The other bike looks kind of like an tomos moped . Do you have any idea why it was illegal to run the motor through the drivetrain ? did they see it as an danger ? or was it more e.p.a hoop-la .... I am hopeing that soon I will get my little scoot fixed . Then I will hang out in the customizing thread unless something mess up or I can help another newbie . thanks for the info !
