    New Owner of GTS250

    Hi Everyone, I bought my 09 SC250 last week and today bought a 07 GTS 250. These are my very first Italian scooters. It has 27K miles clean title but the only problem is that its been dropped on its right side so the previous owner did a DIY on the repair. I paid $1800 clean title. Good or bad buy?

    the ''leg sheild trim'' is available from Scooterwest.com for about 52 bucks a side. If you can get the body repaired at the price you say....even though not a 20 buck repair the both should be an affordable repair considering what you will have....27 k is really lowish milage for a Vespa.....what colour would the shop do it in?....the same ?...or time for a change, I personaly think that blue looks ok...

    If the body shop does decent painting then the vintage mint green should look pretty good on the scoot plus it will be a rare colour for your model scooter....if your wife is happy with it future spending on mods will have better chances of approval.. ha ha
