The thing is, I've already been down this road; my previous scooter, a 1986 Elite 150, was purchased used from a man who was obviously drunk. I wasn't thinking clearly, and bought it for $550; the scooter turned out to need just about everything and more, but when I was done, it was one hell of a machine; I even received compliments on my rattle-can paint job! Unfortunately, all that "learning" set me back almost $1500, and I DON'T want to do it again! (well, not on a bike that isn't worth the money in the end). I ended up nearly giving that scooter away in the end, after a failed crankcase breather element nearly grenaded the engine after 4,000 miles of hard riding.
