The Society of Cool!
if i was sixteen again i would walk into a scooter dealer and put a deposit down on one of these
if you go in search of a worn smooth 30 year old 50 special you'll probably do nothing but push it for the first year and then when youre 17 and able to ride something bigger you'll not want it anymore .
however something like the LN50 will work properly and you'll get a good trade in against whatever bigger scooter takes your fancy when youre older .
Its a nice scooter, i will have a look at it but do you know any cheaper ones?
Know any sites that would sell the 50S?
retrospective scooters have had some nice restored 50 specials but they'll want over 2k
another alternative would be to find a vespa 90 or possibly a primavera 125 and look into the possibility of having it converted down with a 50cc barrell
not 100% sure its possible though
i would just walk into a new lambretta dealer with a deposit and ride one of those LN50s away !
Found this on eBay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vespa-PK-50-Automatic-Ultra-Rare-/1407738...
Think it will be any good?
Personally don't like PKs but if you do, it's certainly affordable.
This might be out of your price range but looks nice
If i got the PK cause its only cheap i could sell it after and maybe get a Lambretta at 17 with a high cc
wouldent go down the vintage 50cc had a special load of rubbish spent more time pushing it hope this helps
I dont really like the look of the modern ones they just look like normal mopeds..
I like the generations between the 1960-1990's
Ill probaly sell the Vespa near 17 when i can get a higher one, luckily for me my next door does loads of things with cars bikes and scooters and does them up to a high standard than they were at first
