that's cool! I wonder if it's OG paint?

non injected too. wonder if it's one of those weird late sprint/super early P motors.

neat bike and a decent price for what it is.

the rattle can probably looks worse in person than in those pics. what else do you spy? I agree not DoD but it seems like a decent runabout, beater kind of bike. $1500? not sure.

Whole ad just sounds like a boatload of BS.

"Over 2k invested in this re-do"

Yeah? Where exactly?

The crappy $80 rattle can paint job?
The new "pistons" (plural)? lol
The "refreshened" rack?
The seat recovered with a "factory upholstery kit"?
Or the timing set with the ultra rare "OEM gauge"?

Sorry, sellers like this just turn me off. It's maybe a $1200 scoot.

You got me to go back and look at the idea of $2k in, which is absurd, given the list. $1k in, at most. He did tires and a top end and some switches. But agreed. I see your point. At any rate, it's not a "oooh i gotta go get that now" kind of deal.

what shame brought forth upon the house of the mighty 125!

that thing reeks of bullshittery. but, I could see somebody being in 2K if they had a shop do a bunch of ticky-tacky work on it.

still, agree with youse guys. 15 would be absolute top of the market in summer and it better have fresh tags!

You guys are brutal! That p125 doesn't look bad!

The rattle can paint is bad, but it's all there and running, looks like it has been maintained pretty well. The lights all work.

If it were a 200, the price would be good. Not sure what the price difference would be with a 125.

I'd go check it out (or ask Chris to) but I've got enough projects on my plate....

10" tire conversion? Engine # but not chassis # in the ad? Could be red flags, but not necessarily.

It's so hard to tell with those.

Few warning signs: the 10" conversion, kind of weird aftermarket speedo, pearlescent paint. The engine number is a 125. No apparent registration.

But the aftermarket parts could be like SIP ones. It has tubeless rims, that are kind of upgrade.

It's very straight and complete for $900. Or looks that way.
Weirdo speedo.

it might be a round tail Bajaj, judging off the steel K/S

I'd gamble at 5~7 on that if the tank wasn't rusted out and the body solid

So I hope I don't get in trouble for this, if this is in any way out of bounds just let me know and I wont do it again. I figure the vespa guys would like to see it even if they don't want to buy it.

Old Honda stuff on facebook in Grass Valley CA. It looks like there is a lot of stuff and I just got the feeling they might be negotiable.

Hondas were commanding fairly high prices awhile back, but it seems to have fallen off a little. There are many that want the retro look but are not willing to put the work in. And even then, are somewhat surprised on how rough the ride can be and not what they remembered.

It's a REAL good thing i didn't see that ad! I'm currently in the middle of a 1600 road trip (NW Oregon to Hermosillo Mexico), and i drove through the LA area at about 7am this morning. I would have scooped that struzzo and figured out some nook and cranny to fit it inside the van i'm currently driving. Who knows what i would have in store for a scooter like that. Lucky for me that someone already snatched it up!
