Idea, who's game?

Ok, last night this homeless guy came up to me and said he'd rap for money, so I listened to him rap and gave him a $1.25 for a quick song, and then I got to thinking "How could I make money off of this?" so I got an idea... I got these four razr scooters, each one works but hasn't been started in six months (a guy I work with bought them for his kids, who didn't want them so they sat in his garage)

We could get one of them to working, spray paint it up or something and find some homeless people who want to display their talant, I would record said video and post it on the internet for you to vote on the most talented homeless person, the winner gets a free razr scooter.

So far everything sounds great except for me figuring how to make a buck off of this endeavor, any ideas?

I've got a camera, I'm starting to carry it everywhere I go now because things like this just happen out of the blue.

I'll probably end up doing it for free just to have the fun of making the video, but I'm gonna need someones help on getting those scooters up and running again, I would be willing to let someone have a scooter if they were willing to get the other three running good =)

well, now that youve asked, i took one apart and stuck the cylinder in my mil and shaved a smidgen, it made more powa.
I took another apart and figured use w/o the base gasket, ought be good for a few thousands off the cylinder height and it want happy.
so. I think I'll stick with the cylinder mod and maybe a spray of nx next time.
easiest to do is the air filter mod and exhaust and maybe a big bore kit. then do the nx, thats the fastest funnest way to haul on em using the small cyilinders when punched it dumps all the nx at once. That ought to be fun on a scooter. Mine was a small crotch rocket, I had 3 of em and still have one left. I have a 2 stroke that pushes my buddy approx. 25 mph, he is 250# + and the frame is a custom chopper I made out of 3/4"sched. 40 tubing (read that as heavy)so it would hold his fat up. it hauls so to speak and its logged over 400 miles to date.
lemme pick em up and get em running for ya. I'll do it for free for you.
I would like to toss a 5.5 honda motor on one I'll bet I can get 50-60 mph easily out of it. My chopper I made does 50mph with turning a 10" wide rear tire. way scary, but thats half the fun, i think. its also the same bike that almost killed me via huge cut and massive blood loss :laughing6
