Knows nowt about them, this is a 200 fitted with a 125 which is running. Owner says new brakes they only need bleeding and no reg doc. Tatty looking but don't expect much for 450 been for sale for a few months. Obviously need check with owner what else if anything need's doing. Not even sure if there's a reg number was not one in pics. Any help appreciated thankyou

cheesy peas
They have very little in common with a p range. .... I wouldn't with that...... unless it was roadworthy. ... youll pick up a real good one for a grand .... they can be turned into nice looking scooters

show your cosa 1 or cosa2 ..... look at the green one 😉

You bought it or thinking of buying it?? If you haven't bought it yet, personally I would stay away from a Cosa for my first shifty scooter. Although I like them, they're quirky, the brakes will always be a pain in the ass, it has a lot of expensive and difficult to find parts nowadays and with a 125 motor as you say, it will be slow. Even with the 200, it was slow. I'd look for a P/PX series scooter...

Also well know to have serious issues warding off tin-rot.

First place to look is behind the front wheel, other places to look is everywhere else.

Great bikes if slow, the handling is a revelation if you've only ever ridden a P series. I'm a fan but well aware of all their bad points, what you've been offered I wouldn't take on for free.
