Good job on the new acquisition.

And please do what scootermarc69 said.
Long term goal is a full restoration.

Short term goal get the engine running right, cables replaced etc, so we can ride it. I want my wife to be able to learn the shift without having to worry about scratching a freshly restored bike.

How's this working out for you? My wife wants a scoot and has her heart set on a ET3 (which I am totally stoked on). She looks to be the exact same size as your wife. How is she liking it? Did you fix up the running gremlins?

Still on the bench. I haven't had a lot of time to work on it. Plus had a few unexpected big expenses pop up.

It runs and runs pretty well, just not good enough for her to learn on yet. needs brakes and tires for sure.
