After receiving glowing feedback from a scooter forum, I'm totally showing off my 2014 Kymco Like 200i LX on Retro Injection! This is my first and only bike, bought new in 2016. We hauled the scooter from New York to Arizona in a Penske truck (along with fifteen arcade machines) before we sold our house back east. It hung out in our storage unit for the longest seven months of my life. Now that we've moved to the desert, we can ride all year!
Many of the scooter's '80s and '90s decals came from Redbubble.com, where you can find thousands of unique designs printed on men's and women's American Apparel t-shirts, long sleeve and v-neck shirts.
The scooter is equipped with a Garmin Zumo GPS set to Adventurous Routing, which avoids highways. With a 163 cc, fuel-injected, air-cooled engine, the bike's top speed is 66 MPH. I have braved the five lane. Let's call that experience... exhilarating.
This Child's Play Chucky decal is a Redbubble.com exclusive. And dig the custom valve stem caps!
Time-Out was a popular chain of arcades, and I worked at one for six years. Check out the documentary I made of the location. I ordered the custom Time-Out and 100 Yen arcade decals came from Redbubble.
The scooter's upgraded Duro tires have a 62 J rating. (Stock was 54.) I love the aggressive tread, a curbside hint that this cute bike hides some muscle. The Stuff decal on the handlebars is from Redbubble.com. If you don't know about the killer yogurt from this '80s cult favorite, you can read my review here!
The pill decal on the helmet box is a nod to Akira, one of the best anime ever made. The silver and blue exhaust cover took a lot of very high temperature engine enamel to look right.
People love this cycle, and I wouldn't trade for a Harley.
