But thought you'd enjoy the opportunity to consider a mint example of perhaps the Top Dog shifty that Vespa ever made:

How much are smallframes worth? Here's a project bike on Facebook for $350. Not much information about it, though.

Really? Feel free to post some up here. I'm in the market, and I'm a newb so I don't really know a good deal from a bad one yet.

This for one, https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/619070211928601/?ref=product_details looks like a good deal. There is a P200 around there for $1500.

This is coming from a Texan where scoots are few and when they do pop up people want big cheese for them.

That would be a killer deal, if you buy the engine wish we could make a deal on the rest. No idea what shipping would be to Texas 🤷‍♂️

I could get the frame down to you for a few hundred bucks, but first I'd have to get the bike to myself, which would be another few hundred bucks unless I went on a road trip with time I don't have in the near future

deal of the day for me
picked another GTS250
"I am selling because I crashed and my wife is making me sell"
"it is not running, best for the mechanically inclined"
"I will take 550"

always a risk buying a non running bike. I took his word the engine was okay. he let me work on it at his place. it took about 1.5 hrs to get it started. I couldnt figure out why ignition wouldnt get power. had bike apart checking every spot that looked like aftermarket electrical tape. in the end I had to hotwire ignition so it would drive home. once home took another few hours to find it was indeed just a fuse. everything works great now. happy with the purchase. only thing left to do is fix a water leak near the water pump.

The seller also needs to work on his siding reveal for the outlets. Offer to fix his siding on trade with HIS tablesaw, and get the scooter for free.

^^^ Sheesh, HARD guy!

He's only peddling the scoot cuz they're having a BABY, Mister Miser!

Five Benjamins that he asked for, that's MORE than fair, and the welder for fixing the frikkin outlets, if they even need it!

I do like the way your mind works, though

I want this, but I can't afford it and have to get two vespas running right now before even entertaining this. But someone here might be looking for a deal on a lambretta!

Original '71 Sprint w/real original paint, but that's it for the paint. The rest looks all original except the nifty pinstripes. A little ruff, but mostly all there it looks like & motor sorta runs too. What you want for only $1200?

^^^ DAMN, I sure wish I was closer to Minneapolis, this baby would be in my garage in a heart beat! But let's try to figure out what it actually is.

Front suspension says genuine Vespa, no striped down AllState here. But the unusual split steel headset says it's a rare bird, who knows what model & year we might be seeing here? Is the tail lite a clue?

Taillight and no glove box door lock indicate Allstate, no?

I hoping to go look at this one this weekend. Contacted -- no reply yet.

EDIT: I believe I know this bike from long ago (2006ish) The odd paint scheme suggests it. If it's the same one, it's a Vietnam import from the 1990's.

Shocker on the front indicates not, but coulda been changed. Taillight coulda been changed as well or did some Euro Vespas come with this style? I dunno or about the glovey lock either. Hopefully those who do know will see this & help?

Killer deal regardless.

and so
