    Little red zip scooter out the door

    paid $100 for it
    new front tyre
    patched the rear
    new headlight bulb
    new brake bulb
    oil change
    clean air filter
    polish
    reblack plastics

    Tidy profit


    sold to 2 ladies who want to be scooter buddies. I thought the one riding it home was the one that could ride. She pretty much right away whisky throttled it into the fence, stopping just short. Is now wobbling down the road in the dark. Terrifying tbh

    at least the car will be following and its light traffic

    125cc suzuki twist and go i bought a while ago with no compression and no oil in it. piston, rings and a dingleball hone and i took it on a 10 day trip down to the top of the south island, and all over the 4wd tracks that adventure bikers tell me are so hard. Twist and go just twist and went, totally stock apart from a more knobbly front tyre (nothing would fit on the rear so thats just a road tyre), a 12v usb port, and a front rack for extra fuel

    went really well, amazed, it only has 12cm of ground clearance and it was never an issue




    had a couple of issues
    the fan exploded for some reason. i was only just cruising along when it happend, so must have been damaged, or just old i guess. made some roadisde repairs and continued on with a vibrating bike.




    eventually the seal on that side started leaking, probably the bearings are fine. But i bought another parts bike incase it makes bad sounds now. the baffles in the exhaust all came loose, and both the petcock and the press in float needle valve started leaking, so i swapped the carb and got a new petcock

    now to sell - one lady owner, never thrashed
