Crap. If I had known you were looking I woulda given you my old one. I ended up practically giving it away to some guy who had just been laid off and was going to school to be an X-ray tech and needed wheels.

He's probably a drug dealer. I should check the impound lots.

Hmmm. I wonder if anyone's got a beater bike. Maybe we could come up with the ADV Loaner Dorkmobile.

It would spread goodwill to the other members and give them even more to laugh about.

Anyone got an old elite/spree/whatever?

They range in features and style, ranging from Dork to Slightly Less Dork.

Seriously--I'll keep an eye on potential freebies if you just want to thrash one around.

Of course, I'd say your best bet is to go steal JohnTM's.

That's a great cause!

Hey, if anyone can help us hook him up....that would be GREAT.

If you want you can post or PM size (height, etc) and top speed needs, and we can poke around a bit in your area and see what's out there tucked in a garage somewhere needing a new home for cheap or zilch.

This guy I know wanted to sell me his Elite 150.

Told me all about it, said how good it ran, all that kind of stuff. "Nothing wrong with it but the key's busted off in the switch," he says.

I ask for pics thinking I could probably make a few bucks off of Photog, cause she's a sucker for anything dorky from the '80s.

He sends me pics, and it's this sad little Elite stuffed into a snowbank where someone plowed a parking lot and scooped the scooter right up with all the snow.

Then he tells me he wants "around a grand" for it.

If you get one, mind if I borrow it and a can of gas for about five minutes?
