Scooter offer....

Just made an offer on an '83 Areo 80 2 stoke....god I want this, titled runner, cross your fingers for me, movin on up? She's CLEAN..... :) Hoping the owner can deliver, offered xtra for fuel, I have a truck, but a heap, and I don't know where his city is, but if I have to will go fetch her. I suck at tie downs so would use blankets and lay on a side, bungeed in, but that is hard on plastics from the '80's...googling routes now...but hoping for delivery. Anyone have/ridden one of these?

Aero.

Re: Scooter offer....

Ooops! But yeah, one of those! :) Spelling fail, excited fingers. You ever ride one? A buddy back in HS had one, he always wanted to ride my 50v, was almost ready to trade when he flipped the AERO, and totaled it, had me nervous about scooters...but I need speed.

It is a Scooter, I don't give a flying fuck what others think, I need to survive in traffic, I posted in OT for that reason, it is a scooter, I just can't see tearing apart my perfectly good Hobbit to get the same speed, I will keep the mopeds as long as my knees can take it, love my QT-50 etc, Hobbit rocks but stock. I will buy it if I can hook up with seller, it is CL after all, and a Holiday weekend. I'm not here to appease Don or anyone else. Just like to ride.

Honestly in crash tests personal crash test I think a modified moped moves much faster and is much more agile then a scooter a moped doesn't weigh half of what a scooter does and you can eject off of a moped with the step through you can cut the wheel sharp and put your left foot down and the moped flies forward and leaves you there

I had an Aero 80 , they're cool little bikes . Much quicker than a Spree . I accidentally started it up once with the regulator unplugged and immediately burned out the headlight . Don't make that mistake .

can confirm all this.

I have commuted on scooters (genuine buddy 150, vespa et4, vespa rally 200) and mopeds

the tiny wheels of scooters make me personally feel like I'm Mario on a cloud

Re: Scooter offer....

Get it, but make it a cash deal. No trades.

If the deal goes through, I sure will, it has a super odd rack on the front that I would be selling....issue is it is on CL, with only contact via e-mail.....so the ball is in sellers court.

Re: Scooter offer....

Been waiting long to hear back?

Re: Scooter offer....

about 12 hrs now, it is a holliday, dude could be out of town, it's cl, anything is possible. There are 2 on there, but the second is double the price of the one I want.

Re: Scooter offer....

^ really cool, who makes that? I'am at an age where I don't really want to have to keep up with a bike, an electric start Honda will suit me well I believe, staying with 2 stroke though. :)

Re: Scooter offer....

Fuji Rabbit , Fuji Heavy Industries , also makes Subaru

Re: Scooter offer....

Ohhhh, cool, I knew they make Subaru, a guy a long time ago had a complete one that he bought in Japan...super cool. Didn't recognize it naked... :)

Doesn't bother me...……….this IS OFF topic. `Snails' belong here. LOL!

Re: Scooter offer....

But you don’t. Go to church or something and get out of here dummy

Re: Scooter offer....

I bought an Elite 50, which seems to be a distant relative to the Aero 50 you’re interested in. If you want super easy speed, the AF16 engine in an Elite 50 can go 45+ mph with just a sport variator and shorter gears. Then again, riding stock at 35mph is fine too!

Re: Scooter offer....

Thing was sold...and not to me :( oh well, new stuff for sale every day...just saw a Helix running for $700.00.....4 stroke, but I love those bikes...

Re: Scooter offer....

That sucks. Better luck on the helix.

Re: Scooter offer....

Thanks, it does suck, but it's CL, I have to secure storage before making an offer on the big boy! :)
