yes, that is legit.

the turn signals were added along the way as were the big reflectors, but everything about that is period and correct.

One could argue that it's not a "deal"

I made a couple runs at my wife to pick this up and she shot me down even harder the second time, so maybe one of you will get it.

Totally OG 64 smallie for $800.

For the 1972 Super 150, I e-mailed the seller to see about checking it out this weekend, but there seem to be many unknowns--other than the LML motor, are there any dead-giveaways on it being a bodge? My guess is there won't be any mileage info after the rebuild since the speedo looks to be non-op.

From the seller's e-mail: 'I bought the bike with motor and everything installed... have no idea about miles.... runs strong.... needs some minor adjusting as far as shift cables....was not running when I got it...didn't have cables and had a broken headset... all have been replaced.... needs the right speedo cable.... and headlight hooked up.... I have the key for storage compartment and to lock headset...'

A Super on 10's with an LML engine isn't really a Super. I'm guessing you'll discover a lot of stuff that "needs adjustment" - i.e., doesn't fit quite right. Add in the obvious repray, no title, and misc other odd stuff and you're basically looking at a big headache. Unless you're specifically looking for a scoot cobbled together from random parts, I'd pass.

Too modern & too expensive for most here. However if somebody ever had an itch for a more modern four stroke you could shift gears on, this one might interest you :

There's probably 150EUR of parts there, but you'll need a tetanus shot to get them.

I think the price still needs adjusting with no title, but it's so clean he might pull it off at this price.

Selling 2 Vespa p200's and all my parts, I have two Vespa P200 sitting in the garage collecting dust... there are many good parts on each P200, I don't have the time to work on them. One is a runner the other is a parts bike or if you have parts you could make two running Vespa's

Looking to move these this week, this is a good opportunity it you like Vespa's...

Might be great if you can get them down a bit on price.

Only thing that jumps out at me as really wrong is the rims being mounted backwards.
