Sold in June/2011 to a nice gentleman from Truth or Consequences, NM... Best of wishes to him and the scooter! Now - time to work on my 300 GTS project - Yippie!

2007 Vespa GTS 250 (65+mpg (if you ride it easy), 80+mph, metal frame/body, highway capable, engines built to last 50,000+ miles with regular maintenance...) You all should know the sales pitch here on MV...!

- Metallic Silver in Color
- Under 4,000 Miles right now (am still riding it)
- Great overall shape, clean, no crashes, etc - have never had any mechanical problems with it at all. A couple of barely noticeable minor scratches near bottom/rear of scooter (can't be seen in a picture). I will say that this is not a 'pristine' scooter... Meaning it hasn't spent a ton of time garaged and all that. But it looks nice, the the paint is good on it, etc. There is a bit of discoloration of the dash display plastic (very slight) that is probably from the sun I would assume) but is not something too noticeable.
- Mid-size cut down Vespa wind screen (No pics yet of it installed)
- Stebel horn and HID headlamp (not installed)
- Standard rear rack with crate attached
- Tires in good shape (Will through in an extra nearly new pair of Savas for ya if you want as well as a 120 Pirelli front tire with just 8 miles on it...!)
- All the usual service done, basically this scooter is just now getting 'broken in'
- Decent local dealer support (if you live in the area) from Scoot ABQ
- Clear Title (I am original owner and have all papers)
- Has newer (late 2008) CDI/Keys as the dealer had to replace them due to their losing the master key before my buying the scooter.
- I will not sell to anyone or allow test rides to anyone that does not have their motorcycle endorsement...


$3,600 OBO... This is a good deal and you'll know it when you see it.

Selling to complete my other scooter project (which is finally disassembled and ready for paint for those who have been following my story!).

Call me at 505-256-0668 or send along a PM...

(Edited to slightly reduce price and add info.)

I remember seeing this for sale several months ago. So the mileage and everything is still the same from last year?

It was for sale a few months ago and I just got too busy with other things to follow through on it (and my GTS300 painting project) so I just kept it. I've added a few hundred miles since then and dropped the price as well to reflect that.

Thanks for asking.

Time for a weekend bump... Just hit 4,000 on the ODO. All is good. Will throw in an extra set of almost new tires with the scooter (one Pirelli, one Sava). Tires on the scoot are still good too!

Give me a call or send along an e-mail if you want more info.

Thanks for the interest,

Alright, I'll bump it again... Maybe I can forget about selling the scooter and just get in a contest with ATLGTS to see who winds up with more views of their for sale ad.

Winner has to buy the loser a sixer... Razz emoticon

In the spirit of the contest, here's a courtesy bump (and a +1 for my post count) for primordialdancer, since I know I've looked at atlgts's ad a few times already!

Well fine atlgts...! Here's my weekend bumb.. Razz emoticon

Thanks for the support Masala! I think atlgts has a bigger population base to work off of though so I may not be able to keep up out here...

Hi William,

Thanks for the interest in my scooter... While I can sympathize with shipping costs and wanting a great deal on a scooter, I've gotta say no to your offer.

Right now I am not in a bind and have had slightly higher offers from others that I have also not accepted. Certainly things could change in which case I will keep you in mind, but I think something much closer to $3,600 is more realistic to me, even here in small-town Albuquerque.

Good luck in your quest for a Vespa!

Well,

If nothing else, I think atlgts will owe me a sixer...! Razz emoticon

I guess one has to keep their ad bumped to get more views. Congrats to him for crossing the 1,000 views mark. May we all get lucky and find buyers for our scoots...

Thanks Louis Q...

Time for my next bump... atlgts is blowing me away on views now, but I am getting close to 1,000!

(I've started the reassembly on the new 300 - the paint job turned out great! - will post a series of pics once it is all together...)
