I have a 2007 Vespa GTS 250. A guy had a mid life crisis, bought this and drove 3 miles on it, then placed it in a storage locker. A washing machine fell on it, denting the side of the main body (this has been fixed). I paid two painters to paint the body, both screwed me over and the last one kept some plastic pieces (both were paid).

My wife and I are expecting our second child now, so I don't have time to address this.

Any suggestions as to what I should do wit this? Should I part it out or sell it as a whole?

Let's see some photos. What are you looking to get for it?

I am looking to get $2500 for everything. I know if I part it out I should get closer to $4400, but I just don't have the time. If you are serious, I will move stuff and take photos.

Shouldn't it be GD and parts, as I am selling it in the end. Just asking if I should sell for parts or as a whole

So, if I read this correctly, itís still dented, needs paint and some pieces are missing? If this is so, then $2500 may be too optimistic.

Once you've made up your mind you can post in For Sale - but beware, if you don't put your location in the title it'll get summarily deleted.

It is not dented, that has been repaired. It needs paint (cosmetic), the paint they did put on it doesn't have clear, but is protecting the metal.

The trim skirt and other plastic pieces are missing.

Do you know anyone looking for a body, engine, and trans? If so, I will just part it out. If not, then I will sell as a whole.

It's taking up space and the wife is starting to complain.

If it has an entire intact metal body which is now in good shape, I'd say there is no reason to part it out. A few plastic trim pieces are easy to acquire. I'd say a GTS with a good body and good mechanicals is worth $2500 if some paint work is actually all it needs.

It says location is Austin if you all look under his name on the left side of each post. I am taking a wild guess, Austin, Texas USA? Some great pics would help sell your scooter. If your on FB, a post on the marketplace part of that site with good pics and your price should get the scooter off to a new home quickly.
Good Luck! Mike the Aspie
