Cool Re: 1978 paggio bravo {vespa}

I've been pricing scooters for a long time on Craigslist- It seems there are quite a few used ones on the market that are not running, and a lot of people selling them don't seem to have the ability to get them started.

The most frequent comment is usually that the scooter has sat for a long time and someone thinks the carb needs cleaning.

Of course it could just as easily be a blown head gasket or anything, scootwer replacement motors are a little pricey, several hundred dollars.

But it sounds like a lot of people are getting scooters and not using them much. I'm worried I won't be able to afford a car soon-

about the time I can't walk much or ride my bike, unfortunately- Sheesh! I hate Insurance....

P.s.- can you post a pic? I'd love to see it.
