I've tried to do a little research on Crossrunner scoots and I'm not finding much. The prices on them are really cheap. I'm thinking made in China?

It's a Lance Vintage. It also has a million other names. Ergo, china scoot.

Yup. It's another Chinese Honda Joker clone. There are versions sold by many companies under many names.

AHA! See how educated I've become by being a Modern Buddy Forum user! Able to spot a cheap Scooter in a blink of an eye!

Thanks Eric, for a great source of information and learning! Laughing

the paint job probably cost more than the bike, I do have to admit though, it's kind of fabulous in that horrible kind of way. I wonder if they have the ACDC model Twisted Evil

Nice kitsch factor!

While I'm not a big fan of Kiss I appreciate the artwork. I agree with Jason that the paint job is probably worth more than the scoot itself, which is kind of sad. All that work on a scoot that might not last very long.

What's up with this picture? The transmission and side stand are on the right side as if the photo was reversed but the "kiss" lettering is correct.

Also the the right brake lever is operating a cable ( rear drum brake) and the left side has a m/c...

I call BS.

A little off topic: Lance has a similar model called "Cali Classic 125" which is made by SYM in Taiwan.

Yeah, I have to wonder how that happened, especially after the Fiddle/Vienna fracas last year:

More SYMs Lance bought out from under them and rebadged? Hmm…

I doubt it's paint, it's probably a vinyl wrap. All the cheapo chinese companies have been displaying wrapped graphics lately at the motorcycle shows.

It's probably backwards because they're still waiting for the shipment, so they just photoshopped the graphics onto a JPG of the scooter in the meantime.

Gene Simmons is notorious for never turning down the chance to make a buck (he brags about it) but in this case, I wish he'd have looked into the product a little more. Then again, it'll maybe be a chance to sell them a Kiss Casket (they make em!) a few weeks later!

This company also sells scooters with college colors and decals on them. They promote themselves as green transportation for college kids.
