Well In the uk it used to be Cosa, PK, anything with Servetta on it, Lambretta J range such as Cento, Lambretta Linx , Indian built GP , Lamby Polo; all got noses up but now are becoming desirable. The J range and Lui are going up in price since the 110 135 and 4 speed 5 speed conversion kits being developed . True wolves in sheeps clothing. Guess people just want to be different now. How many PX's are there on the road versus PK's, theres not many PKs at all so stands out now.

I like the rebuilt engine one!

I've seen so many people selling cars for over value because the engine was replaced and they act like that's the whole car! It's one part of hundreds people. Your car still has 200k+ miles ROFL emoticon

some of my favorites:

ran when parked!
>more like, ran and then blew up and was parked.

no title, off system. easy to register.
>impossible to register in your state or I owe 7 billion in backfees

great project! it's 90% there!
>the last 10 is the expensive or impossible shit to find.

or my favorite: easy fix to get running.
>really? then take a Saturday and friggin' do it!

classic!
>yeah classic piece of shit

spared no expense!
>didn't pay nothing neither!

^ My favorite too. I love ads that say "Just needs ______!" [battery] [muffler] [carb clean] It usually means "I have no clue why it's not running."

I love it! Freshly rebuilt engine and they replaced the plugs. ROFL emoticon

I like the picture ads when they wash the scooter, then leave the bucket, hose, and sponge in the pic and the scooter still wet and sitting in water.

And the pics from a thousand feet away...

Hey if it's straight up not running they figure they can say whatever they want. The problem is, a savvy buyer should know since it's straight up not running anything could be wrong with it (and only pay accordingly)!
