    ... Just for a hoot I priced out insurance for that bike and me riding it just now, I theoretically get the cheapest insurance available here.
    Came to 476$ per year for minimal coverage.

    Around here the insurance cost would turn you off wanting any scooter that doesn't have peddles.
    I looked into insurance around here - its nothing. At most 140$ per year.

    I've found that amazon has good prices and free shipping on most parts. I can pretty well completely rebuild the engine for about 100$. I'd say thats reasonable as long as its not something I have to do every year lol. I just wish I could find body panels.

    lol not italy - georgia US. Between amazon and ebay I can usually find a good deal on just about anything.

    Except those gods forsaken body panels which apparently were made in secret factories with unicorn horns - and can't be found anywhere anymore.

    Have you considered vacuum forming your own body panels?
    The cost of a motorcycle is merely a down payment on farkles.

    If you're concerned about body panels, don't be...if you need reassurance on that, take a gander at the Honda Ruckus and its various Chinese clones.

    I had not considered vacuum forming my own - I'm not entirely sure how to do that. An interesting thought though. I'll rig up something to protect the electronicals temporarily while I figure out what I really want to do with it. At the moment its an ugly mess lol but it runs and drives and stops when you tell it to - can't ask for much more than that.
