    Thanks for the tip, I have contacted Fox grip and waiting for a reply. In the mean time I have painted my side panels and a friend has a striping tool he will let me borrow. I will wait a while for the paint to cure and do some practice striping. I have also taken the handle bars and front tire assembly apart. I have straightened the handle bars and tweaked the fender and are ready for paint. Wheel bearings are new as is the felt. This has been a fun indoor project with our cold winter climate here in MN.

    Does any one know where to find the white coke bottle style grips for my 1946 Clinton Doodle Bug? I think Fox Grips has made them, but can't locate the company. Epay has all other kinds except these. Thanks Jonnyd

    Thanks for the very useful info. I have an original left side panel form a Model B I picked up at the 2018 reunion. It has the hole for the choke wire or rod? I used it for a pattern for both sides and was handy for locating all the original mounting slots and choke hole locations. It must be interesting to start a cold engine, holding the brake with one hand, pulling the choke with other and kicking it over while standing on one leg. Jonny D.

    Thanks for the kudos, your scooter looks awesome. Mounting the tank higher hides some internal components and cleans up the look from that point of view. Jonny D

    Thanks for striping info. I finished painting the fuel tank and have it temporarily mounted. My tank mounts do not look the same as other Model B units but fits nice and fills the gap at the back of the seat. The tank also sits hirer and may help with fuel delivery when fuel is low. Vern at the last Doodle Bug meet in Webster said it was upside down like the first picks sent. I need to know how wide the stripping is on the side panels and are there decals of the BUG on both sides of the panels on the Model B, and should there be Cinton decals on the sides of fuel tank. I know the frame should be red and will be eventually. Jonny D.

    Thanks you for this sight and all the information contained here, it has really helped. I have pretty much finished mocking up my Bug and now making some new side panels. I am now going to taking it all apart and paint and detail things back to as close to original as possible. My question is about the white striping around the edges of the side panels' are they paint or are they done with tape and also the striping on the front fender. thanks, Jon D.
