Got my first vintage home. It is a 1974 150 Super originally shown in posting 1967 150 Super. It does have a 177 cc kit with exhaust in it. Was running a year ago but kick start doesnít move

Nice ! One of the best sounds in the world is hearing a motor run for the first time.

You need a big antenna on the back with a raccoon tail attached to the top. Then it's perfect!

Love the aspirational logo on the glove box.
Suspect that red could polish up to something remarkable.
Gang here have all sorts of tips and tricks on that that I'm always blown away by.
Nice find!

It's adorable, I love it! That paint is going to polish up super nicely, I'd bet. I'll admit there's something cozy and satisfying about those fuzzy seat covers. I'd either leave then or replace them with some sheepskin ones like you'd see in an 80s cars.
