I'd want that bike just to have a legit case-of-beer glovebox. Combine it with a rear rack and it'll carry a full week's groceries.

Oh why-oh-why did they have to make the more recent models so hideous instead of those classic lines...

Love the big compartments as well on my -95 Chetak 125. Bought in in 2019 and waited in line for it's turn until I got it running in fall 2021 and registered in the beginning of 2022.




Paid like 300 for it. Engine was basket case along the scoot and missing only the cylinder and rear wheel hub.

What's behind the plastic horncast? Does it cover the old style horn?

The 2000s ones were much more PX style, but this one looks like a Sprint with some minor changes.

The choice to stamp the fender detail three times is interesting.

There is just a horn hanging on the horncast. It would be too easy if there were an old style horncowl. I've thought about taking the ugly cast off and refitting it with classic style horn cowl.

Basically it's really a Sprint with Indian twist. Just enough to call it their own vehicle and get around the license manufacturing deal with Piaggio

You could do one of these things.

Yep. Bajaj just made minor changes and kept the metal stamping and parts almost identical and interchangeable.

There's something charming about the Bajaj, though. You could definitely convert it back into a Sprint.

Here's a blog post where someone did that.

The mid 80's PGO I had years ago had the same horn cast and signal lights but was otherwise almost identical to the P series. They were made in Taiwan.


Looked just like this.

Ugh...I just got back last Saturday from a 3200 mile road trip of buying two different KTM 990 Adventure dirtbikes. I'm west of PDX, and I hotshotted 1000 miles to Vegas with no sleep to pick up the first bike. I left home at 10:30 am Thursday, arrived in Vegas Friday at 4:30am, took a 2 hour nap in the open bed of my truck right in front of the seller's house, woke up at 6:30am, bought the bike, left Vegas at 7:50am with bike, continued to drive another 570 miles to Silver City New Mexico. Arrived in NM at 6PM Friday evening and bought the second bike. Almost passed out from the intense pain in my foot while loading up the second bike (I crushed my foot 3 months ago, and I'm still on crutches). Started driving again at 7pm towards Alpine California. Finally stopped at 10:30pm Friday night to sleep on top of a concrete picnic table at a rest area. 2 hours of sleep in 36 hours of driving kinda kicked my butt. Woke up at 4:30am Saturday morning and arrived in Alpine California about noon Saturday. I dropped off my dirtbike's suspension at a shop, then pointed the truck North to home. I stopped again Saturday night about 11pm at rest area in Lakehead, CA. Woke up at about 5am and stopped in southern Oregon to pick up my sister at about noon on Sunday. She drove the truck the rest of the 5 hours back home. Arrived at home at 6pm Sunday. Two of my friends came over and unloaded the bikes for me at 7pm. Went to bed at about midnight, then automatically woke up at 6am the next morning.

I'm done buying scooters/bikes for a bit. My funds are depleted, and my butt is sore from driving for so many hours. My foot now hurts like a son of a gun even more than it did before I left for the trip.

I did bring a mini freezer with me on the trip, so I was swapping out ice packs on my foot every hour while driving. That was the absolute only saving grace for me.

My sister took a quick pic while I was sleeping. I was pretty darn comfortable (and tired) so it took me about 1 minute before I was out. A half cup of a medium sized coffee and one energy drink kept me powered the whole trip!

I suppose we can give you a pass. Primarily because it's a Stella. But next time we expect you on it pronto.

I'm glad I made it home in one piece too! Especially since my sister loaned me her almost new Ram Cummins pickup truck (thanks sis)!

I also did a shorter road trip (1000 mile round trip) about 3 weeks ago to Idaho buy dirtbike. It was a quick there and back with an uncomfortable 3 hour nap (if you could even call it a nap). I came home with KTM 990 Adventure bike AND a case of covid. I guess it was some sort of a twofer deal. Maybe I caught it from a public toilet seat?

Two things for sure, I have no idea how many KTM dirtbikes are in my shop, and I have no idea how many Vespa/Lammys are in my shop. Luckily (unluckily?) I have a very large shop.

Check out my atrophied leg! Even though I was in a decent amount of pain in the picture I faked a smile.

Tuning parts make that a deal.
+1 on that John.

sometimes it's: whoa this a deal a whole and sometimes it's whoa, this is worth it for the parts alone! a hydro fork & headset, throw in a motor with go fast bits, add in a seat and a tank setup? if it's tagged up and titled? even better!
