Yes. It looks like they replaced the mudguard with a straight one but didn't bother to straighten the fork. The excessive distance between the front edge of the mudguard and the tire is fairly apparent.

at least it's still on 8's

it *might* not be total gar-bagé just an older amateur "resto" with some cheap indo parts stuck on.

even so, that's wayyyy high. I'd probably walk down to the corner to take a peek at $500 but any more than that is a pass.

Ok boys, 5 more years of these price increases and we can all retire comfortably.

that's a surprisingly good deal for those considering what the market is on them. even more so if you're into them and have a stable.

you're not allowed to look at other projects until you finish your first one.

no other scooter or scooter related projects till you have at least one running.

First I have a running scooter and motorcycle.

I would be taking seller to see a local lawyer to witness deal and get a valid bill of sale. I would definitely use a cashiers check at an FDIC insured bank just to be able to raise a stink with FBI if I get sold a stolen vehicle. VIN who knows, depends where they we're located on these, seller may not know where it is.

After all the above, you can bond a vehicle in Minnesota and get a title. Not expensive to do on those in current state as value isn't high, few hundred dollars maybe for a bond.

Don't tempt me Scott! I think my Uncle has a farm not too far away from those cars....maybe less than 200 miles? He also makes the drive to Oregon once in a while. My only hold up is that i'd probably try to stuff a P200 engine in it...one at each corner.

Let me finish a few scooter projects first-
-that rusty 1958 VB1 200,
-that second less rusty 1958 VB1,
-that blue 61 Allstate 200,
-that PK 135,
-that obnoxiously red PX 210,
-that crushed NSU Prima 3,
-that Lammy Golden Special 225,
-that OTHER Lammy Golden Special.

I need to knock some projects out before i die. I'd hate to burden someone with all of my junk.



NOTE: i purposely didn't mention the CJ-7 and the other CJ-7 stretch projects...along with a few KTMs that i'm also building out.

Dear Lord, I just realized i am "THAT" guy.

Looks like someone put an LML motor in it at some point, so the lump might not be a total write off. A ticket for that lottery plus a helmet bag isn't worth anywhere near $1200, though.

Hmm, I think we need to rename this thread the boulevard of broken dreams. The last 2 bikes are examples of that journey. The straight of the boat bike ready to break hearts and the second bike where the broken heart finally admits they have to get rid not the pain and move on.
