"I'm selling my 2009 aprilia sr 70cc r factory.. I put more than 2k on it.. it lost compression and i don't have time to fix it.....I think that all the part that I put on it maybe i forgot a few parts.."

At least some of these listings are good for a chuckle.

Aprilia SR's must be worth a fortune! We have someone on the Norfolk C-List (wish I knew how to post links) asking $3400 for a SR! This one runs, unlike this dead one Point found, but still to much money! Rare does not always equal worth.

And I like the "I put X amount of money into it!". Good for them. Worse if it doesn't run! Just shows they don't know what their doing.

On one of the Burgman sites I read where a guy had messed up his crank and "destroyed" his bike. He could take the motor from this and make one working Burgman...

You should buy that. All it needs is a carb cleaning.

looks really clean...i'm sure i could get it running...but the ad doesn't say anything about a title...not sure if i would need one to register it as a moped in MA though...haven't registered a moped since i was 16...would never have time to ride it and it's more than i paid for my buddy which goes much faster

ET4s aren't hard to find, nor are 2004 models. This price seems a little high to me though.

A $6000 mini bike? With “hand polished engine cases� which are actually black? I’ve got a 93 Riva 125 that you can have for $5500 if you ask nicely

Apparently, the NADA guide for Excellent condition X-90's is about $6K. However, I would never buy such a thing for that cost and can't imagine what kind of person would do so.

That is a good deal. I wonder whats up with the missing front mudguard though. Kinda makes me wonder what else might be going on with this Buddy.

Good luck selling your Aprilia 70cc scooter Dooglas.

I love the Aprilia scooters, have three of the Scarabeo 500ie's and two of the Scarabeo 150's with the Rotax engine.

I used to have one of the early Aprilia DiTech 50cc scooters too and it was great also.

I don't think it's Douglas that's selling the Aprilia. He's just quoting what the seller is saying about it...

Looks cute but a 50cc Buddy barely has enough power to move itself and one rider around let alone a sidecar and a possibly large significant other...Lol

I think you'd have to be a fairly small significant other to fit in THAT sidecar. :wink:
