A couple of months ago I bought a scooter (not running) for $500, and it will be my winter restoration project.

The engine has been shipped to Scooter Mercato for a rebuild, and Iíve made room inside to begin dismantling it. Bee nests in the headset and rodent nests in the frame. Itís going to be a great winter!

photos or it didn't happen!

I also got a "barn find" 1980 p200e for $650 a year or so ago. Just finally getting around to rebuilding engine now.

good stuff. doesn't look too bad from that one photo. Mine was completely disassembled except the engine which was left with clutch cover open to the elements for 20+ yrs. So I had to pull the engine completely apart to make sure there wasn't rust all inside it.

All signs point to this being the original mileage

You should be able to just upload your photos directly to MV using the add attachment fields at bottom of add post page.

BTW, Mine had the same rats nests in the frame, but yours looks to be rust free or mostly rust free. So that's a positive!

JFC is it that easy to add pics? Hoping I remember this for the future pic posts on my 58 Allstate thread

You can add 20 images per post, so you don't have to make a separate post for each image.

What device are you using to upload pictures? My iPhone can only do one at a time here, my Android can do multiple at once.
