Not a deal per se, but looks SUPER intriguing because it seems too pretty for a `67 with original paint (though at 2100 miles, anything's possible), yet has original dealer stickers on the tail and tunnel.

Seems like a Concours starter kit, if everything's original...

Looks to be in amazing original condition Worth every penny !
And with a '67 I believe you can fiddle w/ the motor more easily than older ones.

Here's another original-looking 90 Super -- this one's a `64.

Considering EVERYTHING needs actually restored, $1500. Easily $3/$5k to just get it back to stock, and then paint... So a further $5/8K. Unless you love it's current "restored" look. Then $3,000.

The wall of text does not sell it for me.

So many "wrongs" with that "restoration". Seat, speedometer, trim, color, general lack of attention to detail...I could go on.

I'm sure the seller is quite upside-down on the "investment".

Oops.

I agree. The text is an annoyance and unnecessary. The price is too high considering it's the 'wrong' color and has several aftermarket unoriginal parts. It looks very similar to one that was for sale a couple years ago on Ebay. Not even close to deal of the day. If I had US$8,500 (11,000 CAN), I'd buy something better.

Ironic deal o' the day?

I think that's been listed for going on 2 years. It made it as low as $8k US, but now it's back to $11k CAN.

For that price, you could at least include the helmet hook and spare cover.

Edit: $8500 US

Looks familiar , are you considering having twins?

Very tidy low mile bike and I'm gonna guess it is original paint.

But who is this cheapskate Gene guy anyway? From the ad:

Ha, no. My friend has asked me to sell her Ruby numerous times - and she's serious. So I thought I'd look around for her.. I think it may have been painted - check out the grocery hook...

Now you have me wondering, you may be right... but maybe it's shiny and that's a reflection?

Now look at the leggy trim, floor rails, cowl hooks, oil sight glass & rubber buffer, fuel tap and center mat. Painter either did an awesome job of masking or he removed all those. But he forgot the helmet hook?

I agree - grad job on the floor runners but I see some more possible overspray just below the left blinker on the legshield. The curiosity is getting to me - I'm going to contact the seller.

A pretty nice looking scoot tho. Hope the re-paint is covering up anything. Doesn't look to be from the pics. Would be nice to see an MV'er get this one.

I dunno... Maybe I'm just a cheapskate, but I'd have a hard time paying more than $1500 for any P series unless it was in a high state of tune... But that's just me...

Definitely not a deal of the day, but an amazing Barn Find. Only 186 miles on the odometer...

^^^ want, can not have


Here's a nice one for you, Chris. Much closer, better paint and cheaper too @ € 1.150, but a few more miles(30,000 km). Includes lots of racks, maybe too many...



Or maybe a minty Pole Position w/ 10,800 km for € 4.500 or 1000 euro more than the barn find is at right now.

Did the seller contact you? I think that yellow is sweet. And if you get the other frankenbike with the P200 engine, you'd be golden!

I've been there before Mac. Finding a good deal on a scooter that's local to me, then like you said, it getting put on blast here from someone else who's out of state. Yes it can be frustrating, but that's what this particular thread is all about.


...I'm pretty sure I've booked myself in at the same hotel before.

Accepted and thanks.

Dealing with Craigslist brings out the worst in all of us. I just accept the rule of 1/5; you'll have deal with five dickheads, deadends and bad deals for every one score.

And, for the record, my V, which originated in P-town, ain't got no cupholder, but I did ride it coast to coast this summer.

I called the DMV to find out. Since it has Oregon plates a Bill of Sale is needed and a Replacement Title form signed by said Bill of Sale person. That's $77.

Then to bring it up to current tags and register it in your name you need to bring the scooter to the DMV so they can verify the VIN, and pay $93.

It looks like all that is doable and not too difficult! Has it happened yet MacG?
