    I have about 1000 dollars into a nice small performance scooter. It started life as a Honda 1989 EliteE a single speed 25 mph scooter. Cost 400 in good running condition. After being totally bored with it, I bought a performance DIO engine Built into 86 cc with a big bore and stoker kit for 500 dollars and modified a Honda CR85 pipe to fit on it. I have had it to 55 mph so far. It handles better than I would expect. Can get air under the front tire at start.

    Here are two very short youtube links before I really got it going.

    It weighs 120 pounds without the two back panels and tail light.
    Good luck at having something that pulls you nicely.

    I think I may pull the trigger on this thing. I have to see how much I get paid this month and I may be able to whittle the guy down to $750 if I see something I don't like, but the more I think about it the more I like the idea of having a ring-ding in the garage again.

    Team Calamari says I can get it kitted out for another $3-500. This might be fun!

    1984 Honda 125cc Scooter, 2500 miles. Runs great but looks aren't important, right? This bike served as my commuter to work last year but this year I've only driven it twice so far. I took it to work today though. Last year I got 66MPG in my 70 or so trips to work in the summer. New battery in 2008. Other than the new battery, it hasn't needed anything at all to be a reliable commuter. The bike has minor scratches, cracks, and dents which I'll call 'patina'. I covered it with racing stickers. These will easily come off should you wish to remove them. Think of it as an 'art bike'. Starts and runs well. All lights and horn work. Tires in decent shape with no leaks. Engine is 2-stroke with oil injection (I'll give you the extra 1/2 a quart I have). Currently it has a full tank of premium gas. Bike was carefully stored for the winter and always started right up in the spring. I store the battery in my basement. Some plastic has cracked but I glued it back together with 2-part epoxy. It's missing the battery cover. I'm sorry. I have no idea what happened to it.

    I bought a size Large new black Bell Bandito scooter helmet last year. http://www.bellhelmets.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=product.display&Product_ID=7886 I'll sell that along with the scooter for $25.00. Includes carrying bag. This helmet is in perfect shape with no scratches, never been dropped, and always has been kept in the bag.

    * Asking $1100.00 or Best Offer as of 9/15/09
    * Cash only or $$ transfer at Wells Fargo Bank. No other forms of payment will be considered.
    * Test drives are okay but a helmet is required.
    * 125cc's means you need a motorcycle license or permit to ride.
    * Easily will go 50+mph. I rarely took it over 30. It's never even seen a highway.
    * We can go together to the DMV to transfer title.
    * I will furnish a bill-of-sale to the buyer as well as the MN title.
    * Registration good through 2010.
    * This will make a great College bike.
    * Kryptonite U-lock (not included) fits easily through the wheel and tire - super secure!

    There is also a Yamaha Jog for 300 in IC area that I was told a title CAN be had through the PO. .These have a different motor and have a ton of aftermarket. Also another Jog (97) for $550 running, title, etc. in Wilton.

    replying to post:

    1. go to bottom of the page
    2. hit "new reply"
    3. compose your post, hit submit, enjoy.

    starting new thread

    1. find the forum you want to post in--make sure it's the appropriate one, and read the rules if you're not sure. It's also not a bad idea to do a search to see if you're not rehashing something for the 1,298,987th time. Hint: do a google search using "ADVrider" in the search string since the search feature here sucks dead wombats

    2. Look at the top left side of your screen when you're in the forum. You'll see a button that says "new thread"

    3. click on that button, and your editor will come up. Compose your post, give it a title, and hit preview post if you want to be sure you haven't screwed up something. Then hit "submit new thread"
