That was longer than last week. I just got these ones (3). I have some possible sales pending. I'll post in flea market if they become up for grabs.

They will be cheaper than you can find a new one for online.

Cheapest goodest scooter: Vento

Best bang for the buck: Kymco Super 9

The Super 9 is well-built, has nice fit-and-finish, a 2 year factory warranty, and will do 55 when you derestrict it. It has dual discs and a chassis designed for racing.

The Vento is built around the Minarelli engine which has a great reputation and has been powering other well-known scooters. Parts are cheap and plentiful. The bike itself is handsome and durable.

At $1800 new out the door it has to be the Ruckus. Honda reliability and 90+ mph.
