Saw the pics of the old scoot. Does the guy have a solid Florida title on that scoot? Waiting patiently for pics of your 2017 scoot.

Give it a good inspection & post motor pics. Looks legit to me too, just a mediocre home fixup job, maybe years ago. 99.9% of Asian bodges will have a new lo mile repop speedo but this one looks original and there are a few other clues.

Hello as well from Florida.
I am also a Floridian and welcome to the group. Nice to see that scooting hasn't lost it's charm here in the warm state of tourist's trying to run you over. ROFL. I myself am from the Orlando area, about 12 minutes from Downtown Disney area.
