So true. Then you find the nicest people (like us) who actually ride them. I put a lot of miles on my little Hondas. What's the sense of having bikes if you're not going to use them, right?

Thumb Honda Aero-80 1983

Great looking scooter. Beautiful cleanup and polish. I have a 1983 Honda Aero-80 Scooter Silver and I thought I had low mileage at 2, 247. You've got me beat by a mile! All mine needs is a new battery. Everything else is original. I am planning on cleaning mine up and putting it on the sales block this summer. Hope I can get it looking as good as yours. I am really impressed!

Make sure your slow jet is clear. If it idles without adjusting the screw, you have miraculously avoided the problem. Might be worth running some Seafoam or Marvel Mystery Oil through in the fuel. Can you do that with a 2 stroke?

Beautiful scooter. Hopefully the crankshaft seals will hold up. I don't think I've ever seen a 2 stroke sit for that long without the seals going bad. I had to replace them on my 1980 Puch moped. I believe it was only the right, but I did them both. It was sucking in transmission oil through the right seal and smoking like crazy, though it still ran. I also had an '82 Passport many years ago. I wish I fit on small bikes like that.

klxguy that one you found was pristine for sure.

Here's a quick video of mine running and riding. This was the only time I rode it. She still has jast 140 miles. It is taking all my willpower not to ride it around though!

Hey, a great find there! You've done a nice job of cleaning it up.

About 5 years ago, I bought a 2003 Honda CH80 Elite with 75 miles on it. I've let it sit for several years, but am now getting it running again. It now has 185 miles.

Please replace the tires for safety sake.
