I noticed a couple of us have recently acquired new used motorcycles so I wanted to share this pretty clean looking 1969 Honda 350 on marketplace not far from me in Reno asking $1,300.

The ad clearly states "engine turns over with good compression" so see list above but it's only $1,300 bucks.

Like someone said in another thread I would rather have this fixed up than a Halcyon. The Halcyon's are nice I like them don't get me wrong I just like this better.

My favorites are the ads with the cover over the battery gone and a handful of screwdrivers and other tools sitting on the floorboard. Back when ebay first started listing bikes, and everyone was terrified of buying anything on the internet, people were dragging beautiful 1960s and 1970s Japanese bikes out of the basement that they'd parked for thirty years. They were going for a whole lot less than they were worth, even then, because nobody trusted the internet.

2009 Kymco People 50 for $300 in the North SF Bay Area (Novato).

This is a theft recovery with some back fees to the state of California.

I am wondering if any of the parts are interchangeable with the 150 models like the Liberty and Vespa Sprint and Primavera?

FWIW the first line of that 15 line word and number scramble is actually the link.

I don't know if this is a Vespa thing or just my dealer(Max Motorsports), but several of the left over 2023 small frames are being sold for 18% off.

2001 ET2 $150? If i was closer, I would already be mine. Great deal for the Atlanta area - or really any area. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1136004280948989

I'd stay away from that Facebook sale. 5 friends and posted they live in another state than Georgia. And, the price is too low.

It's most likely a con, but if I was close, I would check it out.

All facebook marketplace and craigslist ad posts should be taken with a grain of salt but I can see several reasons why someone might have an anonymous facebook user name and profile.

I have zero friends on facebook. My user name is my dogs name and a false last name that is a slang term for ugly (urban dictionary).

I resisted facebook for several years when everybody else was fiending on facebook. One of my best friends from high school convinced me that the only way to get in contact with another old friend who was dying of lung cancer was to sign up so I did that and went and visited the old friend before he passed.

Then I got hit with all of the politics divisiveness. Life is short, spend as much of it as possible arguing with people you went to high school with about conspiracy theories...

I use facebook only for marketplace. I have bought stuff from the listings and sold a few things as well. Anybody looking at my profile with no friends might think I am a scammer or creep but I assure you I am just avoiding the negative aspects of facebook.

Usually a competently worded inquiry and the subsequent message conversation will quickly determine if someone is full of it or not and if no red flags pop up from that you gotta go look.

I bought mine and my wife's GTS off of Facebook. You need to do your due diligence but some real deals can be had. I thought mine had to be a scam but turns out the seller was the northeast factory rep for Piaggio and was passing along a good deal.
