New member, 86 Spree, original owner

Post by Burritoman » Sun Jul 09, 2017 11:04 am

Hello all, just got my Spree running and legal after a few years in storage. I purchased my Spree new in 86 for $574 out the door from Bettencorts Honda in Ma. and it was my first form of transport to work. I've always cared for it sometimes better than others but never abused it. It was stolen back in 94 and recovered a year later with minor damages. It currently has 5,089 miles and runs like a champ. Still pushes my 190# self at a respectable 30 mph. Glad I found this great group of like minded folks!

Welcome to the forum, Burritoman! Glad to hear you still have that baby rolling with all those harsh Maine Winters. Pics of your scoot would be nice!
I need to find some new haters...the ones I have are starting to like me.
