Blue Fly

I will be the first to admit to having "multiple bike disorder" but I did not pursue this one. It sort of "found" me. Longhaul747 has the record for MBD.
A chap staying in our RV park saw us removing a generator from an abandoned motorhome. He knew I was in to scooters and offered a trade ...the generator and a weeks rent for this.......



2006 Piaggio Fly 150. It has a few miles on it (14,000) but runs like a top.
A new rear tire should have it ready for beating around Jax while I'm here.
Cortez, be nice.

You need a new front too!

I dig the Fly!

It's one of the very few Piaggio products that costs as much
as it's worth!

Are they rare? Those are Stella'S which you can get for about 7500 Canadian brand new with sidecar and all. I like my Stella I just don't have the sidecar for it yet.

I just bought Hoadakaguy's '69 Vespa Granturimso. It has a '74 Rally 200 engine in it, and it rips! I have it scheduled for an Out of Province inspection, since it was imported from the states, but that isn't until Thursday. Dang! I want to hit the streets!

The alley will have to do for now. Sorry about the lack of helmet. I tend to be irresponsible when ripping around in the alley. My friend taking my wife for a scoot.

Thanks. I hauled home a '69 Granturismo exactly a week ago for myself, and today I hauled home a 2006? Granturismo 200 for a good friend of ours. She has made me proud by purchasing a Vespa LX50 late last season, and now she has upgraded to a 200. She'll have to get her bike license, but she is jacked! It makes me proud to have someone actually want one, buy one, then actually ride one. Her LX50 is also a 2006, and had only 240 kms on it, and now this GT 200 has a whopping 1700. She'll put the miles on it that the scooter deserves. Good girl! My wife came along for support.

Mine


Hers

Nope. The lock is a black lug.

It's a home made 4x8. It was pretty lousy when we go it, but we've done some reinforcing and made two opposing wheel chocks so the bars of bikes don't interfere. If you are in the states, and have any Big R farm supply stores, they make a very nice welded angle iron 4x8 for under $700.

In its previous incarnation, it had the small 8" wheels, but they wear out too fast. The 12" wheels are much much better, and easier on tires and bearings. Love that shitty trailer!
