Default Any love for old-school Honda scooters?

I see a lot of Ruckus owners here. Just wondering if anybody likes the older Honda scooters.

Here's a few pics of my old school Honda scooter junk.

This is my 1984 Aero 125. 125cc, 2 stroke. The largest 2 stroke scooter Honda ever imported. Stock it would do about 60mph.

It was a mess when I got it, so I cleaned up the body, patched some holes, and rattle canned it a proper Honda white.

I also replaced the stock 18mm carb with a 28mm Oko flatslide and the stock 2 pedal reeds with a CT 4 pedal reed on a custom adapter plate (nobody sells reed upgrades - or anything for that matter - for the Aero 125).

It'll bury the 75mph speedo now.

This was my 1977 Batavus HS50 moped. Slow, but kinda cool looking.

This was a 1982 Honda Urban Express Deluxe that I picked up for $50. Faster than the Batavus, but friggin' UGLY!.

So I made this.

This one is still a work in progress. Needs a lot of little stuff (a real headlight, real bars, some paint work, a 70cc kit, some variator tuning, a 16" rear wheel).

Somewhere along the line, I also picked up this 1985 Spree. Not sure what to do with it. I'd like to find a Dio engine for it, but I've been looking for that for months and haven't found one...

And a courtesy pic of my daily driver Civic.

So yeah, that's my old Honda scooter junk.

Cool? Or a waste of time and money?

I'm a huge fan of the old school scooters. I'm looking for an elite to ride around this summer.

I actually think I saw your Aero on Craigslist when I was searching... haha.
