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!! Cool

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!

Very Happy Crying or Very sad

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.

Brought home ''Hoot 2'' yesterday!

Exactly like my first one with only 1200 miles!

Could not be happier!!!

Now if it would only stop raining! LOL

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.
