i might delete this forum.

its been almost a month. and the forum is dead.

the amount of people that wanted seemed legit to make it. but the use of it is lacking.

unless someone turns this forum around that is a scooter forum leader go for it.


or it needs to go bye bye.

I just got a 1971 Suzuki A50. 50cc and almost 6 hp! I guess that would be a scooter.

Replace it with something useful like a beer forum.

ok off to d drunk thread.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I posted this in the scooter picture thread, but I wanted post it here so they don't delete this forum.

Here's what I just picked up today. It's a 2002 Aprilia (of course) SR 50 Ditech. The engine is a fuel injected 49cc 2 stroke with only 2200 miles on it. It's in excellent shape! It also has a Gianelli exhaust and modified clutch roller weights. The wheels are a decent 13" size. The guy said he got a top speed of 58 MPH confirmed by GPS. He weighed about 235 lbs. too. I just took it around the block and it got up to 45 pretty easily.

If you're going to have a scooter, it might as well have style. It's got blue wheels just like the Tuono.

Phil, I'll just say it was less than $2000.00. I have been looking for 2 months now for one of these. Scooters are in big demand now, especially small displacement ones. These SR 50 DiTech's are extremely hard to find used, especially with low milage like this one. New they are $3K+. Add a pipe and other little mods like this one has and you're over $4K.
