I just stripped down my Targa LX to the frame because I'm going to add some support bars and repaint it.  Why does the frame look so horrid?!  It has like big globs from welding in some places and even spaces between some welded spots... Are all mopeds like this or is this just common with Tomos?  Are these things even safe to ride on?  Heh... 

Now from an aesthetic view... I guess I'm going to bondo a lot of it before the repaint.  I just wasn't expecting it to look glued together... Even though it's underneath everything, it still bugs me(as you can tell).

are these welded parts under panels? if so, i guess tomos didnt consider it important to smooth the welds as they wouldnt be visible

Wow, that's a frightening observation! I've never seen a Targa with all the pieces removed but yeah, sloppy welds aren't something I'd expect to hear of from a Tomos. I sure hope mine's not such a bad case ... I guess the only way I'll find out without removing panels and pieces is if it comes apart underneath me. I'll be sure to file a report with y'all if such happens (I pray that it doesn't!) ... and if I'm in one piece.

Yikes,
