Sad you have to part with her but wow it looks like you have taken real good care of her. And I want that garage floor! Good luck with the sale. I would buy her myself but it would require a divorce i think.

Notice she is proud enought of her garage and contents to have a glass garage door. Also her Ridgeline out in the cold can look in at his warm little buddy.

sticky....Doug is correct. Neil and shop member lowered/shaved/recovered my seat and have done many over the years.....amazing transformations/creations.

Doug may ride his For Sale 2008 Aprilia 200 Scrabeo over to my place today, so I can take a close look at it. (I'm preparing for the day that I can ride again)
Have to say though, that I Really Like the Newly designed 2011 Piaggio Beverly 125ie mentioned w/pic, on the General Discussion board......it's Not in states yet. Wonder when it will arrive? I have time.

Thanks for compliment cstokes. Sorry, no can do on your price range. Saw a few on CL in GA, prices about 200-300.00 less (no custom seat, only stock screen, mileage higher, etc) So, I am good at my price.
Maybe rethink your $$ range "Azure Blue" color not that common, but around (mine pristine, waiting for a hearty rider!

I found my buyer on CL. Provided a link to MV and buyer had read up on my ride here prior to contacting me. If you do use CL I recommend the link. Potential buyer will gain a lot of confidence in your ride reading about it here.

Thnx for the input stick.

I've only been at this process for 3 days but I finding it as frustrating and painful as a root canal. I figured this would be straight forward. You know, just pick a reputable shipper with reasonable rates. Thing is they are all over the map when it comes to their policies.

One doesn't deliver to NYC, one has a fuel surcharge which requires an advance math degree to figure the exact cost. One has a residential surcharge while another has a terminal-to-terminal surcharge and requires "special handling". One considers the MP3 over-sized because the front wheel isn't a standard width. One includes insurance of $7000 while another includes insurance of 10 cents a pound (I'm not shipping plastic bags here). Some want the keys while others don't. Some use a pallet while one uses a pop-up crate. I can go on all day with this ...
