28 days on CL? Surprised it's still for sale. But this is probably the worst time to sell a scoot. I'm not into smallframes, but that price does not seem that far off.

Did you end up trading it for a P as you'd hoped?

I ended up selling it for about double what I was asking. Will buy a P with the funds when the right one comes along, keep me in mind if you see any good ones!

I took a look myself. It's not bad. Mostly original. The right side floorboards need to be re-welded to the brace underneath. The forks look pushed back to me. Others may have a better eye on the fork situation and chime in.

Not very very cheap but could be a good deal.

Two smallframe Vespas in mid Florida.
If really original, that 1970 Primivera 125 looks excellent. $1800
The 1986 PK 50 with 100 kit is just so unique for North America. $1750

Since were talking smallframes, this 1982 Vespa 50 Special with a kitted motor is not bad for $500. Frames busted but a frame could be found or go the Gt6MK3 route and build the frame back up. http://modernvespa.com/forum/topic159075. Won't have the problem of the horn cast not fitting.

https://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcy/d/decatur-1982-vespa-50-special/6815555781.html




OK, last one for the artistic folks out there. This P (don't know the cc's) is only $795. It's really geared up. But seriously, this scoot could be a "primary driver".
Don't forget to leave a tip in the tip jar and I'm here all week. Goodnight everybody.

Smallframe project $150. Shipping would cost more then the scooter.

I ended up paying $1400. I actually found that it runs quite well. The owner was an older guy that doesn't know much about engines and noticed it wasn't running right and just wanted to sell it. It revs high at idle right now so I'm pretty sure it just has an air leak. But otherwise runs quite well. It's got a cylinder kit, it starts in 1 kick, only as 2800 miles, etc. Given all of this, I think it's more fair. Am I still wrong to think this?

Now that we know itís actually running and includes a cylinder kit, $1400 is pretty good! Shame the owner didnít know his own scoot.

Paying $1650 for a stock, non running P125 isnít a deal of the day and I would have moved onto another prospect.

That's an early 3-speed J125. Smallframe Lambrettas are getting a bit more desirable now because of the impending launch of a range of tuning goodies from Rimini Lambretta Centre / Casa Performance.

However, it's still only worth around half of what's being asked for it.

This same guy had a P200 engine awhile back. I talked to him in email and he seems to know what he is doing.

Oh, you "talked to him in email"? Well that's a ringing endorsement.
Because you have such a good track record buying engines?
Next time just buy a running P200 (that you can test drive in person) for under $2k.

I have a feeling there will be a next time.

It's not a Deal O' the Day (he wants $1,800), but this guy lives around the corner from me and I've seen him riding it a few times. It's truly in perfect shape, so if someone wants a cosmetically beautiful bike, this is a good option, even if it's a Stella (I say as a proud Stella owner ).

I'm also happy to roll over and give it a more detailed review or facilitate a transaction if someone wants to jump on it.

Egads! That Tuk-Tuk is only a 50cc! I don't foresee that coffee staying hot for too many miles.

meh - ebay auctions never end up cheap unless they have a buy it now and it is low. plus you should never buy your scooter from ebay, it's generally a horrible idea.

I was thinking someone who lives close enough could go check it out in person and make an offer.

Generally, you are right, a questionable idea. I first saw my scooter on eBay, then saw it again later on Craigslist..... not local, but not across the country. An honest ridden vintage scooter, being sold by an honest open seller. After 6 years, I don't regret the purchase.

Hey Tradspa. Looks like something for the "Modern" side. This is the NSM side, which means shifty!

The "Deal of the Day" is typically shifty scooters. At least in the NSM area. The scooter you posted was a 2015 VST or TNG scooter. Not the NSM cup of tea. It it right? Is it wrong? I probably shouldn't have said anything, but I looked and then was like, "what the hell, this is a TNG?"

It's all good!

No Reserve 1962 Cushman Vespa with sidecar + parts bike
He didnt say anything about it being a Cushman Vespa in the description but those are as rare as hens teeth. no reserve auction in Illinois. parts bike looks easily restorable.
