If you are open to travel I think there are a couple Ulys for sale in the classifieds over at badweatherbikers that you might want to consider. $6500 for an 09xt should get you a very clean bike.

I think there is room in our market for an Asian 300cc retro, I'm surprised it has not been tried yet. Hope it makes it here and if it does that it comes in less then 5 grand.

As far as parts go, you can see from my Sig line that I ride a Buell and a Daelim so it should be obvious that I'm a glutton for punishment.

The 300cc retro has a SYM engine so it should be reliable. If it's priced significantly below the 300cc vespa, it will be in a class of its own. I'd sure give it a look.
