Spotted.

"Neighbor has seen army green Chetak or Vespa in the Columbia Heights
area of NW DC. Said 'some kids' are racing it around, has busted
headlamp and missing cowl. Anyone recognize this bike?"

Trying to get these kids in touch.

I sent that e-mail to the craigslist post last night and he replied saying he was talking to that guy now. Hopefully it works out.

Joel called me about it - did he call you Tony?

I sent that e-mail to the craigslist guy and he didn't bother replying, now I hope he doesn't get it back.

Maybe he got a bunch of e-mails. It must suck having so many people trying to help you out.

I got it forwarded from the DC-MD-VA scooter e-mail list. I don't know where it originally came from.

Nah. I wrote the guy back after he said he was looking into it and told him good luck. But he didn't reply. I'm guessing he doesn't check this site at all.

I guess I'm busted!

Actually I was walking my neighbor's dog last night on W Street. I turned up 12 1/5 Street toward the high school and there it was laying on it's side on the sidewalk. I thought about leaving it there and just telling the guy where it was, but decided to push it back to my place where it would be more secure. I only hope the guy calls me to pick it up soon...other wise the will be a posting for a free scoot posted here soon...

I just emailed the guy to let him know to hit you up Doc.

Hopefully he'll get in touch soon.
