Ha ha i had a maicoletta with tradesman side car. only sold it a few years back.  Pin striped by old mate at regal design before he passed away, electric osoalting start, gear change indicator, for a 53' model it was space age tech.

the one you really need to track down is the maico mobil ! not that is a collector and cool piece if you can ever locate one.

What about a 64 Vespa?
Greatest price drop ever :)
A lady(couple) on my cycling route, who I have befriended over the years, flagged me down last weekend.
She has a 100% complete one laying up the side of her house. No sun damage, upholstery and chrome still very good,
Cover blew off and has a lot of rust in floor pan and tin tunnel thingy,,,,,,,,,but running well when parked because of illness.

SOLD. Pick it up and then hook me up ill take it off your hands now for $200 clams ASAP.  fastest $200 youll make this week :)

how bout the 242GT Nathan, underpowered for the mass of car, but i think its the coolest classic volvo made for the general public.

I will own another GT, providing their prices haven't gone crazy when I my nostalgia finally outweighs my pragmatism.
The good thing about telling the truth is that you don't have to remember what you said.

Sorry Freakshow and in answer to several PM's received.

If I were to grab it and "Flip" it. I would have to be fair and that means probably the first hand up to ask the same question.
That being the PM, which was from Yamacio.

Not sure if I will move it straight on, but has a lot of bad rust so maybe I will. Need to mull it over for a bit.
Had dinner with them last night. probably pick it up this arvo.

Trouble is, then I will owe them a favor.
Hot tip I have learnt, if you have friends or family, don't buy a ute ::) ::) ::) ::)

Next problem will be when they ask how are you going with the Vespa? Having fun?

How do I get it to a stage where I can say ooh I sold it and spent the money on  ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)

Ummh, one step at a time

As I said very sad and heaps of rust.

Yamaco's PM came through first on a time line, then Freakshows post, then three other PM's.
So you have first refusal Yamaco.

The floor plan and leg guard are fixed to the tunnel with bolts.
Kick start seems jammed, so didn't want to force it. but turns over with plenty of compression when it is put in gear.

Not hot, last regoed in Senior Police prosecutors name.
