'79 or '80 P125, kitted to 150, stuck piston, soon to be kitted to 177cc.

I bought it off of an older couple who owned it since new and hadn't even broken in 4th gear properly after 26,xxx miles.

Ughh, this looks like a 150?

Hate to say but those go just bit more "slightly faster" than a bicycle.

After reviewing page after page of these scooter pics one thing is evident to me.

Scooters can be some of the most beautiful expressions of moto-art
-or-
some of the ugliest f'in things to ever roll on wheels!

Great road, 9N, outside Lake George. Last year as smooth as you could want and quite twisty.

me Scoot

Kymco Xciting 500. Last bike before this one was a Yamaha 1100. But this Ultra Scoot is more fun!

This is my expression when it comes to Mainland China Scoots! What kind of engineering night mare is that?


Have to replace the itty bitty china scoot radiator Qlink Pegasus 150 Overheats! Warning do not buy Mainland China Scoot! Because this is where you will end up! Working on it!

Peace Out!
