I don't know about that. This Malossi 166 I have now is not fussy at all and kicks my old P200's ass. It's like having my cake and eating it too.

When I am able to build one like that, I will be happy to change my mind. My hat is off to those who can make it happen.

Don't do the porting and stick to a small carb and a semi shitty sito exhaust. Magic of not going for 100% of the power.

This is the secret. Maybe spring for a SIP Road, but that's about it.

Service life falls off rapidly as power increases.

Hey All,

I'm a longtime lurker (back to the BBS days)/rare poster but appreciate all the helpful info over the years.

Just saw this on Seattle craigslist and it's killing me I have no space. Hope someone on here can grab it:

https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/mcy/d/seattle-1976-vespa-150-super/7751893358.html

Cheers.

MTC
I told my friend about this and he is very interested. He has been observing me kitting my Super and he has decided that he wants one.

Is there anyone in the area that can look at it and make sure it's as good as it looks and then possibly facilitate the purchase and shipping?

I know it's asking a lot but he is serious and will make it worth your time.

I know this is short notice and it will probably be gone in a short time but we would like to try.

Thanks.

I should be able to have a look towards the end of the week if you can confirm that it's still available. I'm surprised it's lasted this long based on pics & price. Don't hold your breath though, he's just posted this Crying or Very sad emoticon

Thank you Terry - Ruby is fantastic! 😊

Yes.

I will message him and let it be known that my friend is prepared to offer his asking price.

There is a lot to be worked out but the chance of getting it is a non zero number.

Yes it's a Stella but price is in range and it's got some goodies. Salvage title so make your decision and negotiate

A decent project but a bit high considering the the state of it and work needing done. $400 would be more like it.

Ok. This was on here late last year and I snagged it. Now it is taking up space in my garage and after the Rally acquisition this will not be resurrected…by me.

No title, no key. Frame VSX1T #28434 = '79 P200. Engine VNL3M #117324 = 1980 P125x. I've seen it start with spray down the carb. Haven't ridden it as it needs some cables. Right hand polini pipe and vespatronic ignition hint at what may be lurking in the cylinder. More pics on request. I only took out and cleaned the tank and cleaned cobwebs and carb a bit. Nothing more.

$500 to MV peeps for this week only. Then it goes up to the general public for more. I'm in San Diego and LA delivery may be possible. PM me. Be patient as I have a busy day.

My sister is probably about 30 minutes away from that seller. But hard pass at $900 for a non running scooter from Medford. I see an old engine hoist or stand in the background, along with a bald mud tire off somebody's heavy chebby pick'em up truck. 50/50 chance of the seller even providing a bill of sale with his real name on it. I'd go as high as $450. Once home, then i'd stab a P200 engine into it.

Hard pass. But only because it's missing the yellow boots. Perhaps they're in the glovebox?

What platform was that for sale on?
