HAHAHA $2900 Super (1974, no less) on CL

Offered the guy $1000 and sent him the Scooter Lounge buyer's guide just to get his reaction.

$2900 for a '74? A non-running Super 150 no less? Guy's out of his frikken' mind.

On the flip side, it's a US model and not a bodge.
Ey-o, o-ey.

Yours was a non-running project?

That was a scoot that had been owned by two legit scooterists, it ran and it was $1400. I also believe the electrical problems had been solved, yes?

IMHO, there's something about that $1500 number that's kind of magical. Below it, most classic vespas (especially running) are usually within a realistic realm of "worth". $1000, $1300, whatever, I think most folks are going to be happy with the purchase (unless it's total crap, of course). But above $1500, I think most folks expect a beater that is in running condition, a relatively recent large frame (running P series, for example) or something rare (GS, GL, SS, Lammie, oddscoot, etc).

For $2900, that Craigslister's offering a bleh scoot that has funked out colors, questionable pedigree, and a non-running engine. It's been relisted on CL for months, which leads me to believe it's a "personal ad" scooter. The photo's a flattering view taken 3 years ago from a distance with a lo-res camera (like the photos in personal ads LOL). When people go on their date with the scooter, they see it for what it is and say "I'll call you" to the owner...
