Hello!

I'm in Dallas and saw this on the facebook marketplace for $2500. Gentlemen said it didn't run when he first got it, but he took it to a pretty known shop in town, Anthony Scooter Work, that does good work on older scooters. Got a new carb, seat and fuel tank. He says it everything else works and the scooter runs well.

Is this a fair price

that looks to be an ET3, not a 74 primavera. ET3 were never really imported to US, so no signals is not necessarily not original. 74 primavera would have the big battery side door and signals if a US model - mine is.

price might be OK. looks like it has been resprayed at some point - what is the condition of that paint?

ET3 is a better riding bike than a 74 2port primavera any day, assuming it still has an et3 top end on it.

Thanks for the response. I am going to look at it in person in about an hour. Will give update when back on the paint.

make sure there's a proper title since those weren't imported - sometimes they get titled in funny ways which might explain the 1974 situation. but you don't want to be the one trying to title a scooter that is gray market if you can help it.
