Paul,

Have you ridden the GTS 250? If so, how do you think the 300 compares?

Because I think it looks better without, why else?

WD will always work; we're forever too impatient though.

Len.
No, sorry. Everyone who has says while the 300 has no more power, it does have torque.
All the best.

Do you want other people to think it's a Vespa?
Are you embarassed to own a Stella?

I don't know, I've never taken a Badge off
of one of my scooters.

If I were embarrassed about it then I would've bought one of the PX150s sitting next to it on the showroom floor.

I might even end up re-badging it, although I might get a sticker printed instead. I just didn't like the stock badges.

Hi all. Lurked on this forum for some time but just joined finallly. Love it here.

Anyway, thought some might enjoy these. First is my home-built bike, it's an old huffy I dug out of the barn, regreased the bearings, new tubes, new rear tire, and an 80cc chinese engine kit gets this thing up to 25 easily, definitely fast enough for bicycle mechanicals. Don't know why I didn't do this when I lived in a more urban area in college, this thing's a blast! It's rough but I like the look, kind of ratty, hopefully sufficiently ugly that no one will try to swipe it.

I followed that up with a CT70 lookalike, also from China. This one a 04ish Jincheng with a Lifan 50cc and dangerous automatic 4-speed setup. I am having a blast on it though and reliving my youthful memories of a borrowed 50cc honda. It gets me around town pretty good though it has an occasional mis I've yet to work out of it. It's a little beatup, light mounts bent, chipped paint, etc, but working to make it look a little more like an authentic CT70, will relocate fender, replace crappy decals with real ones, etc....

Next up will likely be a larger displacement scoot, I've been jonesing over a Zuma 125 or Kymco Agility.

Hope you enjoy, they're a little atypical compared to the scoots everyone seems to be sporting these days.
