Did they use discs for a few years? I swear I've seen them somewhere but have never seen one for sale.

I saw that this morning. If it has all the parts (which I doubt) it might be worth about half what he's asking. The amount of rust would qualify as a big ass red flag to me though.

Apparently I own the wrong scooter, it'd be over $300 to do something similar with my Vino. (There and everywhere else I've looked.) Oh, well. I guess I'll be keeping the scratches and cracks. Yours...

I've seen a lot of weird Ruckuses (Rucki?) and this is a reasonable version, but $6200 is too much if the engine is still stock. I'm assuming the seller is trying to get their money back for it,...

Jerry, do you mind if I ask where you ordered the panels from?

My Vino 125 is really beat up looking but the body panels are a lot more than that.

That's the big argument isn't it. Carbs are infinitely easier to work on, but they can clog from lack of use or crappy gas and don't like cold weather. FI is more reliable in cold (or high altitude)...
