Got another cheapo bike:

Non-running china scooter my room-mate saw on craigslist for free. Less than 30 minutes after it was posted we were lifting it into the back of his SUV.

Apparently it's a 2008 JONWAY YY50QT-6 (which is confusing because the bodywork says SUNL SL50QT-7). Only 177 miles, sitting for a few years it looks like. I cleaned the carb, flushed the tank, lubed the cables and changed the oil and she runs like a champ! GY6 engine with 155psi compression, valves look great, no metal in the oil screen. The only real problem with this scooter is that somebody did a sweet duct-tape paintjob over some of the panels. I'm sure that looked really cool for about 2 weeks...

Between the 1 quart of oil and the 1/2 can of carb cleaner, I'm into this scoot for about $5.
