I think the phrase "bring a trailer" is a very apt one for some of the bodgery we see. Don't take that trailer back to your brother-in-law, it'll come in useful sooner than you think.



This "racist" thing gets a run pretty often by people who have no idea whatsoever.

This one? Not the same bike. Color orientation of the body is opposite.

It may be an anti-bodge, but it has to be synced with a positive bodge to have a meaningful effect, and even then, all you get is nothingness.

Aside from the colors, they all sort of look the same to me. I actually "restored" a metallic yellow/pearl white one for a guy two years ago. What a trip that was.

I didn't remember that bike, I just randomly found that page. My memory just isn't that good, even for scooters.

The ad says it was restored in Viet Nam. But how can we ever know for sure?

Seeing a glovebox on one of these makes me nervous… not even sure what model that glovebox belongs to…

"replaced her original engine with a brand new Stella" so… original motor not worth rebuilding?
