    Very nice scooter - I've always wanted to find one of those. Looks like you have been restoring it. Just curious - how fast does it go?

    Thank you, I have been working on it off and on since 1971, as these things can't be rushed. I did most of the body and paint work when I was 14/15 years old, though I did final paint 12 years ago and yes in the spirit of my youth I painted it out of spray cans. As far as how fast, with the 4 HP engine, on a good day and a hefty dose of fearlessness it will run about 45 MPH. But at that speed the citizens could never soak it the coolness of it all.:lol3

    Wow that is a long term project! I should not talk though, I spent years restoring a 1966 Solex that is finally done thanks to E-Bay and parts from at least 10 countries. Like most restoration projects, lots of things slow the process down - parts, life, kids, wives, work...

    WOW, $7,000? Thats a hell of a lot of cash for a scoot like that. I mean it isn't really practical for daily use, but it sure is a cool little bike! I saw one in my are for $4,000, but it was a little different and was yellow.

    Oh, and minimotos95, I guess so!:rofl. But I have a CRF 50 as well. Things are so fun! My CRF 50 was and is THE MOST RELIABLE motorcycle I have ever owned! Every time I kick it, it fires to life on the first kick. It has never failed to start on the first kick!

    Here's a photo of my 1985 CH250. It has been a great scoot, but it's time to move on to something bigger.:D

    So very true. Fortunately, if I miss it too badly, I can probably buy another. At this point, I've caught the dirt bug and would like to move to a dual sport.

    Keep it! Just get a used bike on CL for a good price and you'll have the money to! It will be hard to find another one in that condition! I guarantee you'll miss it! It looks so good!

    Yes, I understand you, it isn't to comfortable on the interstate, so you need a bigger bike, but it is perfect for around town and commuting. I have a 1986 Honda Elite 150 Deluxe in satellite blue, and I absolutely love it! I have 9 motorcycles in my garage, from Harleys to sports bikes, and I LOVE my Elite! I commute on it and ride it all the time!

    Captain,


    That is one clean Elite. My 250 Elite died about 3 years ago and I agree with the above poster who said you are going to miss it. To this day it was the best bike/scooter I've owned.
