My little Yamaha C3

Post by Whimscootie »

It's a 2011 in Pearl White. Last year it was made.

I had Suzy make a chilipepper seat cover for it. I think I might be her "C3 seat cover guinea pig".

Anyway, it turned out beautifully, don't you think?

I've always thought the C3 was a funky-lookin' little beastie, but it's actually pretty awesome with that seat cover!! 8)

Odd though it's looks, it is a blast to ride. Peppiest of the 49cc bikes I've owned. I like that it runs smooth and quiet and is fuel-injected with those big fat tires.

Alas, it is now for sale since I got my Honda Elite 110. I am one of those people who functions best with one scooter and I really can't justify paying the insurance and extra storage cost right now in my apartment lifestyle.

I will miss it and it's unique looks and fun ride!

:D :cry:

I LOVE C3's and have wanted one for years. If they just made a 110-150 version I would have bought one long ago. Its just hard to ride a 50cc here in SoCal with our rode speeds.

Me too. i know they could sell a lot of 125cc C3s. The four valve engine from the SMAX would be even better.

That was very cute and sweet(both the ride and rider). Did you ever watched a puppy riding a portable scooter. Mine "Rusty" rides his portable scooter very well.

I remember reading about a couple who rode a C3 from Vancouver(?) to Millwaukee(?) a few years back two up to go to a wedding. Correct me but I think they did the trip in 10 days and the scooter cruised at 34 mph. They camped the who way.

Those C3's were tough.
