New scooter guy!

Post by KSUTOM » Mon Nov 06, 2017 6:31 pm

Howdy all!
Total Noob here; scooter owner for >24 hours lol. We recently moved to the Pacific Northwest a short time ago and fulfilled a long time wish for a scooter. Yesterday afternoon I picked up a 1985 Honda Elite 150 Deluxe in Nassau Blue. Clock says 12898 miles and I picked it up for $400. It’s in nice overall shape and I’m looking forward to avoiding the parking whoas that plague this area. It’s got a few cracked parts, and nothing I’ll lose sleep over, but that I might want to replace. Do any of you have replacement parts you’re willing to sell?

Thanks!

eBay is your best bet. Save a search for whatever parts you're after and then it'll email you when something gets posted. You shouldn't have to wait too long for Elite 150 parts - they're pretty common.

Finding good used plastics has been a challenge for that model, there are plenty of those scooters in existence, but the plastics seem to have suffered the most from age and use.
They run well, have plenty of power and are fun to drive.
As Dan said " Ebay is your best bet" keep an eye out as listings change each week, don't be afraid to contact any seller of any Elite part and ask if they have the part you need ( not yet listed).
The Thrill of Speed overcomes the fear of death.
I have a Ninja powered Grom and a GSXR 1000.
