<i posted this elsewhere by accident..>

I dont know if this should be in the Buy and Sell section ...

But does anyone know where I can buy a scooter like a classic Vespa or something? In Toronto? How much would they run me?

Also do youneed a motorbike licence for a scooter?

yes you need a motor cycle licence, try the buy and sell for example a vespa 200 1979/81 model should run you around 1000 depending on the condition, I used to own one they are great bikes. Sometime i regret selling mine especially when filling a tank costs about 4 bucks and you can get anywhere in rushour if you're daring enough.

Also Scooter's have a goodsized subculture mainly in hamilton, kitchener and T. try to make it out to the may 24 run in buffalo, it's alot of fun and you'll get a chance to show off your scoot around people who actually care.

There's a scooter shop in Scarborough somewhere off of St. Clair. I forget the exact location, but it's called Performance Scooters. Actually, I haven't been there for about two years so I don't know if they still exist. Look them up. They fix up old Vespas and Lambrettas, engine work, paint job, the works. They even do custom chroming if I remember correctly. Every summer I think of buying one. This might be the year:)
