I'm thinking this is a decent deal, $1800 LX150. Doesn't sound wedded to the price either.

[San Francisco, CA] 2007 Vespa GT200

this is an absolutely killer deal.

tasteful cosmetic upgrades, meticulously maintained, well thought out mechanical and performance upgrades, straight as an arrow, neat as a pin.
I bought it a couple weeks ago! I did it in part just to see the Oops collection! Very fun ride! And I got to see the GS

if you're handy with a wrench that is a killer deal.

I'd 100% double check the tags before parting with any cash to be sure that you don't get bit by any lingering back fees.

but other than that, I think it'd be a cool little run around bike. with a 190 of course.

this one looks like a deal, can sense the frustration in the ad and willingness to haggle.

$1395 LX150 in La Jolla. May need a carb clean or just someone to suck on the vacuum line to refill the bowl in the carb. salvage title though.

although - what's the deal with the kick start hanging down there? that could be an issue.

Seems like a decent deal. I bet the kicker needs to dismantled and that the quadrant needs to be cleaned and lubed.

quad jumped out and needs reassembled, or it's just stuck and needs lube. the arm might be stripped. possibly the cover is cracked.

not a bad deal for the miles and condition. if it was closer I'd go have a look.

This one looks like a real deal for someone who can part it. 2012 GTS with 7,000 miles on it that was wrecked asking $1,500. The body is damaged but mirrors not broken so there has to be some good parts on it.

It is in greater Los Angeles so this one has greasy125 written all over it.

this is a *smoking* deal if you're willing to do a little hustling to find a motor and the mechanical lift on this is super straight forward.

Ok I think I am in the right thread now...Genuine Stella 4T in the east bay area on craigslist asking $800. Fairly low miles. It's a 2012 so it is on the modern DOD but may appeal to some of the not so modern set as well.

A scooter with a metal monocoque frame that is half corroded/rotted away is a pretty tough (and expensive) rebuild.

that ain't no rebuild. that's a straight up 1K beater. ride it till it needs tires, pull the motor and then trash the rest.

if that was local I'd totally buy that just as a thrash around.

To be honest, when I posted the DOD on the yellow GTS above, there were no other pics except the first one. Looking at the rust damage underneath, if I needed the parts, I still would have picked it up - but for a lot less. It was basically a legal titled, rolling parts bike.

I am not quite sure this belongs in Modern deal of the day or not...but it is discounted by $1,300...

I think it is brand new and I do not know too much about the Harley E-bikes but I read that they are expensive. I think most of the E-bikes are pretty pricey.

2024 Harley Mosh Cty asking $2,500.

So this bike is in Reno at Eurocycle. They also have Eurocycle's in Vegas and in a couple other places and they mention that they ship.

Advertised asking price for new 2023 Liberty 150 S is $2,495.

https://inventory.rideeurocycle.com/New-Inventory-2023-Piaggio-Motorcycle-Scooter-Liberty-150-S-Euro-5-Reno-14268630?ref=list

Hard to beat that price even on the used ones of course there are the fees and taxes as it is a new bike from a dealer. I think that is about what I paid for my used one.

1983 Vespa with factory 1000 cc engine $350

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/792102969551843 There are more photos.

The scooter is really cool I have almost every piece to it originally except for the original seat and one plastic dash panel I just put a brand new carburetor on it I still have to get a throttle cable which is the only thing it needs to be a running scooter the high potential thing about the scooter is it has a 1,000 CC factory motor I searched online and the used resale average price is in $1,000 to 1500 price range I'm just in the financial position where I have to have some cash to take care of some responsibilities

I'll try to embed this later. It was a Honda Ascot VT500 that was shelved to 20 years. 11k miles I think. Needs its tank to be cleaned along with the carb.

$1500. Tell me that isn't a deal. That Ascot is gone, lol. This is a Maico 400 that is a great classic 2-smoker.

I think it is kymco 2015 model, It had been sitting in garage for long time. Only needs a new battery. Kick start won't work, All lights and horn work. Some wear and tear cosmetically, muffler has a big hole too, but it start and runs fine.

I'm surprised it's a Super 8. most "mopads" seen to be thrashed Agility 125s.
Picked up two mopads tonight for the same price. '09 Buddy 150 Pamplona and an '00 Malaguti Yesterday.
