Here are other scooters we have restored in the past two years.
"Burgundy and Blueberry Wine"
Our first non-Honda scooter was the Dark Purplish Red Cocktail 2005 Yamaha YJ125 Vino 125.
That started a sub-interest in 125cc and larger scooters. We like to have
both kick start and electric start, and Honda doesn't make any 125 scooters
with both that are sold in America. We built a top box mount and glove box
and installed a factory windshield. Six months later, we bought the 2008
Deep Purplish Blue Metallic 2008 Yamaha YJ125 Vino 125, and also built a
top box mount and installed a factory windshield as well.
Our next scooter was this Pink Genuine Buddy 125.
We added the Soft Italia Vega pink top box as part of the restoration.
Our next scooter was this 2000 Peirspeed Delivery 150.
We cleaned it up, fixed the speedometer, and kickstarter and got it running
right with the correct main jet. It is very handy for shopping and can
hold 4 case of diet cokes.
This is our 2003 PGO BuBu 125.
We repaired the ignition switch and fixed a couple of cracks in the fuel
tank, and now it is one of our favorite scooters to ride.
Our last (as of today) non-Honda scooter is this 2014 Kymco Agility 50.
We bought it non-running, and installed a new battery and thoroughly cleaned
the carburetor, and now it is running great. We added a basket to the rear,
and fabricated a glove box to hold dog biscuits and cheesebrgers. It is slow
off the line, but is pretty quick at the top end, so we are going to
experiment with lighter variator rollers.
