    Scooter Raton Checking In!!!

    SCOOTER RATON CHECKING IN!!!!!

    Yesterday I picked up a 2013 C 650 GT Platinum Bronze!!!!! Only got about 111miles on it so far and need to break in. So far a very sweet ride!

    I'm a bit of a scooter nut and the founder of Team Scooter Trash. I traded in an 07 Burgman 650 executive that I put over 37,000 miles on. I also have
    1964 Vespa GS 160
    1968 Vespa SS 180
    1967 Vespa GT Rat (Ran in 2012 Scooter Cannonball Run)
    1964 Vespa VBB
    1964 Vespa GL (Project bike)
    1979 Vespa P200E (Donor Bike)
    06 Buddy 125 modified to 161cc
    08 Buddy 125

    Hope to be meeting some of you on the road!

    Thanks!

    The 64 GS MK II is a survivor...all original, still has run in sticker...can't read it too faded, original speedo...can't read it too faded..and most importantly the original GS motor.

    The 68 SS180 is a Concours ready and award winning restoration, down to the Lobo flywheel bolts and locking tabs. Took me a year and a half to find the correct tail light! Last year of the piston ported motors and only year with round head and tail lights...rare scooter. Some consider this the true last of the Vintage Vespas

    The 67 GT is a screaming Rat bike. with an 83 P125 motor, heavily ported, malossi 166 cc top end, mazzuchelli cut racing crank, P200 tree, 23 tooth clutch, Dellorto 24/24 carp, custom expansion chamber etc. I smoke Harleys off the line with it all the time! It is the bike I rode for the 2012 Scooter Cannonball Run...Savannah Ga to San Diego CA in 8 days...no interstate.

    The 06 Buddy 125 is Bocette's. Yeah...she has her own ...she doesn't always ride on back! I have opened the air box, put on a 161 top end, 26 carb and ncy pipe. it is a fast little scooter!

    I know a lot of people don't really get scooters...that's OK...I love them! I have to say that coming from a Burgman 650 Ex so far (only 230 miles) I am VERY impressed with the C650GT
