I'm a huge fan of the Buddy. What I can't figure out is why bump the displacement up to 150, when the buddy 125 is already fast enough, but do nothing about the crappy suspension?

Once again: HUGE fan, but.........

And I want to get my hands on a set of those tubeless whitewalls. Ohhhhhh mama!

The Tangerine and two-tone Buddies are nice.

I find the seat to be the most uncomfortable part about the Buddy 50.

I can deal with the seat, but that suspension will beat the crap out of you.
We're going to experiment with a softer rear shock on Susan's Buddy 125.
I don't think there's much you can do with the front end, except having customs fork springs made.

Makes it more vintage, like throwing a P200 engine in an Allstate..
