Picked this up awhile back and just got a chance to get it running. After 2 days of working out the bugs, it is running great. Was looking for a good daily runner. It has the Veloce motor in it and it is pretty peppy. Now to go terrorize the neighborhood.

Thanks everybody. It is turning out to be a good little runner. Took it out for about 1 hour last night. No problems. Just wanted a reliable scoot that I don't have to worry about when I park it. We live in a college town and it isn't uncommon to come out to see college girls sitting on your scooter taking facebook pics.

Seems to be a Sprint V motor in a Sprint body. I have one like that as well in SG. Everything was stock except for the body and motor mismatch.

That aside, do you find it hard to accelerate after hitting the 4th gear? I have a 177cc Pinasco kit and I find that the performance is still not up to my expectations. Or am I expecting too much from my ride?

It's an LML engine. Fourth gear is more of a "some power now" and let me "build to a top speed (65mph) over the next quarter mile" kind of gear. It's what I expect from a 150cc power plant. Hope that helps.
