    There's this one, conveniently located just 3000 mils from you in Coastal California.
    https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/mcy/d/pacifica-vespa-p200/6787958096.html

    And a Bajaj Chetak (Vespa licensed but made in India)

    There are lots of Vespas on SF Craigslist today, but they are pricey.

    The first is great, the second, not so much. I will send the first an email and see if he can ship?

    Thanks,

    I'm looking for a sport-styled scooter for use as a pit bike and maybe run to the neighborhood clubhouse. I'm just south of ATL. I'm debating on posting a new thread to ask for suggestions, but the budget is the name of the game for me. I know nothing about scooters except they're fun and it will make hauling wheels and tires to the changer a whole lot easier in the summer heat. Step through floor will help with that. I'll also honestly admit that some vanity is involved, and I like the way the more recent Honda elites/Yamaha Zumas/Smax's look. I just can't seem to find hardly any for sale; and zero around my budget of <$1k.

    I have a SS Delkevic muffler with a Vespa mid-pipe for sale. Lightly used with a trial run only. Very high quality stuff! made in the UK. I engineered the hanger and spacers to place this oval muffler on my 2018 GTS. It only weighs 4.23 lbs and looks great. It's a bit loud for my ears in spite of the DB killer in place. To hear the sound just listen to a 250c.c. MC on youtube with the same muffler-if I can find it Fred Flintstone can too? It's about the same decibles. I had over 35% hearing loss in both ears before some inmates were born so it's not friendly for me but is typical of most mufflers in that category. certainly looks much better than the dorky OEM Vespa muffler.
    I am not allowed to say where it's advertised with pictures mounted on my scooter but it's a "brand related forum " many of you are also on.
    Questions?
    I also have a Vespa racing exhaust system for a 150 vespa on that same forum with pictures.

    WTB a low mileage Honda Elite 250. Prefer the '87-88 model, but the digital dash in the '85-86 could sway me.

    Have a vintage '66 Vespa small frame that I'm also open to doing a WTT for a Yamaha SR400 or other UJM.

    If no one claims it by Saturday, it gets tossed.

    I'm considering this scooter for my daughter and need a little guideance as I have never owned one. I did email him and it has a clear title but he has no service records from the original owner nor any himself. He did state that he had a local shop serviced it about 1000 miles ago but again no record. Appears to be in good condition but I haven't seen it in person. Don't want to waste my time if it is overpriced and honestly the "no service records" gives me pause. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    It looks like a good deal and well taken care of. Go test ride it and do not worry about the service records. I like many do maintenance myself and there wouldnt be a record of that.
