What about the Madass 125? It sounds like this bike'd be right up your alley!

There's a $900 Zuma on CL right now, that would be tempting if I had money... Unfortunately, I'm going to be strapped until I put the Magna back together and get myself moved to a new place.

A piped Zuma with a 70cc kit is definitely on my list for while I'm living here though!

I dunno... If it looks too much like a motorcycle you might not be able to park it on the sidewalk. I think that means it's gotta be at least a step-thru.

Sidewalk Parking

Pretty much any large university (20K+ enrollemnt) is going to have scooters everywhere and they can park just about anywhere. As long as it either looks like a scooter or is small enough you should be able to park it anywhere without hassle.

A 450CC rukus will draw attention no doubt.

Just to comment on this, at the university I attend scooters, along with motorized bicycles, and mopeds are required to park in designated motorcycle parking spaces. The good part is that the motorcycle spaces are in good spots. the bad part is that there aren't enough of them.

So, the scooters get no different treatment than the Harleys, VFRs', and Goldwings. A special motorcycle parking permit is required for all of the above vehicles (at last it is a lot cheaper than an aouto permit).

I recall a Honda 2 stroke 125 scoot from the '80's that was not slouchy in the giddyup department, The Aero 125. http://www.motorscooterguide.net/page1/page8/page8.html

My recollection of the test ride I had on one was "woah, this thing pulls hard for a 125.." Upgrade parts and used availability maybe somewhat scant for these as they were only made one year. (1984)

Really? I might be less excited

Although it makes me wonder what an Elite 80 would look like with the plastics off...

And then you could put some cruiser style forward pegs on it. Or rearsets! The mind boggles! Do you have a welder?

Every time I look at the Team Calamari page, I want a Zuma more and more. Which means I should abandon this whole thing before I start spending more imaginary money
