This is my current scoot till I get it sold or traded for a Vespa. Nice old Elite 250, liquid cooled single, has factory(Hondaline) color matched top case and wind screen, along with the rare Kenwood stereo(which works great). I have put 5000 miles on this over the last few years riding all over the state. I am autism spectrum and a scooter is much easier to for me to process and ride. I had a couple motorcycles and once you add the shifting in, it starts to become a bit overwhelming with everything else I have to do while riding. I really want a PX/Stella but the shifting, while really cool, isnt really desired. And the Stella/auto is an orphan child that I have been advised to avoid, along with being kind of hard to find around my parts. So here she is, harvest blond in color. Mike the Aspie

I had the exact same Bike for some 10 years. It was one hell of a great Scoot. Same everything except that there radio. I did eventually get a Vespa, more because well I can't wrench and it was getting more difficult to get parts. I ended up selling it to my corner local fix it guy and got my first Vespa. In retrospect, bought that Honda for $1,700 rode almost 10 years and sold it for $1,200 as they say "What A Ride" I liked that foot brake and the Top Box is so much more sturdy than the OEM Vespa. Enjoy the ride.
