early 90's had that swing up saddle seat, and a different smaller tank to fit it. Odd to see it on this later big door frame. No more odd than whatever is going on with that headlight

the top of the tank on the big door had a captive nut for the swing saddle to screw into. Later they ditched the captive nut but there is still a recess in the top of the tank where it would have sat.

some smallstates came with the saddle seat.

No, it didn't

I contacted The seller this afternoon, but I was not quick enough. It has been sold.

It's too bad, I am looking for another project Scooter. I really want a P200 but at that price I would have worked with a P125. Oh well, I will continue looking.

I saw an add for one of those awhile back. I really like the look.

It's hard to believe that stores like Montgomery Ward's and Sears sold such cool stuff out of catalogs. Try buying something like that today where big box stores sell cheap plastic crap at the lowest possible price.

At one time you could buy a house or even a whole school building from a Sears catalog.

My house might be from a Sears catalogue or a kit from a similar manufacturer. I have never taken the time to investigate. It is small but very well built (1930).

My grandfather grew up on a farm in North Dakota with no electricity or running water. He told me the Sears catalog was coveted as a great source of toilet paper too. Nothing went to waste on that farm.

Did you do the vinyl wrap on it? it appears vinyl. if so, would imagine there is wood behind it.

It would probably break apart as you lifted it into position. Heck, it might fall apart on the way home on the trailer when you hit that first bump.

Dave....

Maybe Deal of the Day at half of that, or if it was lo mile 100% original including old paint, but 6500 seems considerably overpriced to me for a p200 motor and added P200 glovebox stereo. If you pimp out your vintage scoot a lot, you may be reducing its value rather than increasing it. And would a '62 VBB still be a roundtail??? Does this bike possibly belong here? : Bodgespotting
Perhaps not imported directly from Italy?

We have ten inch front wheel conversion as well to match the new motor.

It's the roundtail that made me wonder. Was '62 the transition year to squaretail like these '62 VBBs?

Yes '62 was the transition year from round to square. I had a '62 Cushman imported VBB that was roundtail.
