Looking at one of these.....

....from a Private Seller

http://www.kpxmotors.com/scooters.html

The current Vespa was bought as a split with me and a buddy who lives in my Bldg - Needs some work and both of us are toooo lazy to do this so I am thinking of picking up a new scoot - For downtown living, it is such a breaze to get around traffic, park anywhere and the YWB factor is higher than Kaos on any given Saturday

Can get this one for around $1500.00

Thoughts?

I would need to run it by the good Doctor but I am guessing he would like to see a little more than that - It runs (leaks a lil gas but who doesn't, right?) and coulkd use a tune and earl change not to mention a few dents and scratches - I am just going to write that thing off as I got my 4 yrs worth of fun for my 1/2

i got a bottle of fiji water, well actually it's just a fiji water bottle that I refilled with tap water and then drank half the tap water.

i figure thats worth at least a broken vespa, but I was really thinking more like the vespa and $250 for the bottle of fiji

screw the peaches, you know you want the tap water / clearwater spit

<-- Chris

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right
