    Not mine, heck diagonally across the country from me, but a nice 'nuff bike (love the color) that'll top about 60 mph, & handle urban riding with panache.
    At 6k, put fresh rubber on it check the valves, change the fluids and putter on for a long time.
    Of course it's a FL stealership so watch out for special "fees".

    SOLD! says the ad. Looks a little like the SYM HD, but nowhere near the bike.

    Nah, a bit smaller and a step, maybe two slower, but decent and so very simple in all regards that there's just not a lot to go wrong.
    I had it's slightly torquier younger cousin the People 200S. Beat it up and sold it off. Not bad, but once I had the HD running I eschewed ease of maintenance for power, & slightly better ergos (for me).

    Ad states it is a 250. I doubt it, pretty sure it is a 200. Not a 500 for sure, mine had double disks on the front.

    Dang you're right. I didn't even dig into it that much since I'd never heard of that one.
    Rarer still in the U.S. or at least in my area. I've seen the 500 a number of times, even considered one.

    The 500 Atlantic was my first maxi. Great highway bike. On the interstates I would find myself running well over the speed limit without realizing it. For a big, heavy bike I thought it handled very well. Well enough that I dragged parts on both side of it. As far as I know, there is no 250 Atlantic.

    Ad says "driven 300 miles" and lists mileage as 40. Hmmmm....
    How much were these guys new? the two reviews I've looked at here were very positive.

    Motorscooterguide.net says 3200. Reading it and folks on here, I d buy it if I had the scratch, especially if seller would come down on price to allow for new tires, fluids, any needed carb cleaning. I am no expert on sitting carbs, possible work needed on them.

    Just started watching this thread. Total n00b to the scooter market but wanting to get something.

    Is there a reason most are pointing to Kymco models? Are they extra reliable or...?
