Just purchased a 2009 MP3 500 with only 1,802 miles. Asking price was $3,300. Original owner was in his 70s. The scoot has been dropped/laid several times. Once laid while in the driveway. Second while reaching a stop sign at a low speed--the previous owner used the tilt/lock and tipped over. Third time--I was moving the scoot in my garage and I Laid it down. This scoot is heavy when moving around.
1. Both front turn signals are broken
2. Right side of the Legshield cracked and has broken into pieces
3. Minor rear panel scratches
4. Front Wheels are misaligned
5. Upgraded WOLO Horn not working.
6. All tires need to be replaced--Since 2012 its been in NON-OP status.
After 2 1/2 weeks of negotiation and NO one interested in purchasing the scoot--I ended up paying $1,100 and $80 for a tow.
1. Installed Front LED turn signals and LED turn on the side Reflectors.
2. WOLO air horn relocated since the original owner just mounted it at the bottom of the scoot (see Pic). Reconnected it and its loud (136 decibel Loud)
3. Front wheels realigned--suspension is not tweaked or bent. Handle bar just needed to be straighten out and aligned with the front wheel.
4. Ordered Legshield--Awaiting to arrive and will Install.
5. Ordered Tires--Awaiting to arrive and will Install.
6. Scratches cleaned up NO longer noticeable.
*** $400 worth of parts--Mainly Legshield and Tires ***
7. Evan Canister removed.
8. Radiator hosed moved
1. Fuzzy Washer
2. Dr. Pulley Sliders 17gram
