    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. :nod

    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.

    If you just want cheap, reliable transportation, I don't see how you could go wrong with a Ruckus.
    They are a blast to ride also.

    The Ruckus is cool but the only way it will do 90 is if you push it off a roof several stories up.
    Cool Ruckus mods can be found here.
