    I am a modern Vespa guy but do have a strong appreciation of the Vintage Scoots. I have secured a spare GTS300 motor, now to find MY chassis to use with it. Turbo is on my bench with flanges all laser cut, plenty of spare fuel pump options and injectors too. The oiling for the turbine looks actually very easy with case splitting required only due to my anal nature! (cant have ANY soft aluminum chips in the pan right...)

    If you guys happen to know of a 2006-2007 GTS250 for sale CHEAP with good suspension but a rough-ish body or non functional motor please let me know. It has to be friggin cheap though, like me you know?

    there is something truely special making a scooter go retardely fast, especially when you pass a sports bike (flipping the bird optional, but encouraged)

    For me the awesomeness of q scooter can only be felt when either doing a long rolling burnout or when the front wheel lofts from the pavement u der hard acceleration! This is a very good feeling indeed!

    You freaking maniac! Put some Bitubo's on that suckah.
    Bikes:
    2007.5 Tuono-Black, with 1102cc's of micah's badness!
    2012 Griso-Silver and black, Agostini pipe, some carbon bits.
    2006 Vespa GT200-bitubo suspension all around, Malossi big-bore, head and cam, Akrapovic pipe, all put together by Micah.

    gone 2002 Caponord-Oyster gray (as faithful as a hound dog)
    gone Futura-Red (on the AF1 showroom floor. Get some.)

    The more I learn about people, the more I appreciate rocks.

    Don't be fooled by the Stella- might have the look and persona, but the build quality & reliability is night & day. Piaggio released a limited run of new injected 4 spd PX's in Europe this year, may be a chance we're going to see them for a limited run in the states for '12. If they ever made a 4 spd 300 I'm all over it.

    Do you mean 300cc 4T - 4spd scooters? If so way, way cool. If someone made a manual shift scooter (modern) it might actually do well in a sea of auto tranny bikes?
