You're almost better off with an RC51 or SuperHawk, Honestly.

Good find. If it were less than 1 day's drive I'd get it.

That's more my style...

There are a few reasons to get a scooter over a bike, several were mentioned already. Plus: less likely to get stolen, easier to park and maneuver through traffic, cheaper to maintain, better suited to running to the store or short commutes.

I think the only thing that could make a Harley worse would be the addition of a Wankel... or maybe a PC Pro.

I posted the original post cause for whatever reason I'm on a scooter kick at the moment. I want something very inexpensive, great on gas (and to insure, etc), "different", and I can tinker with to make more fun/safe and not spend a lot of money.

In an ideal world I would be able to just put my old gocart Brigg's on a simple frame and register it.
