WTB: Honda Aero 80 any year

Post by nunnsie » Sat Feb 08, 2020 7:35 pm

Hi,

Looking for an Aero 80 in good condition from '83-'85. I've been looking locally and have had no luck for months.

Hello nunnsie... :)
I am curious. What is it about the Aero 80 that has
put you on this hunt for a one in good condition ?
Here in Nashville, Tn., in a period of 10 years,
I might have seen a total of 5 Aero 80 scooters,
none of them in good condition.
I bought ONE, and sold it as quickly as I could,
after seeing how the choke system was designed
and having NO success at getting the thing to run right.
That was enough for me to swear off the Aero 80 for good.
So, back to my question...Why Aero 80 ?

Hi, I bought an 83 about 7 years ago in rough shape but I found it fairly easy to get running again. At the time I had a garage and was hungry for another project so I sold it and moved on. Ever since I've looked to buy another because it was the perfect runabout for my needs. I had 3 125s that all proved problematic and were never as fun as the 80 to me, so the search continues.

That's very interesting; the results we each experienced are completely opposite in
with the same two bikes. I absolutely loved the NH125 that I had. Thank you sir.
I wish you total success in your hunt. Other riders with NH80 seem to have respect for them.
I'm finding that this Yamaha Jog fills the niche for "runabout" very well.

Thanks kindly. That jog looks like a lot of fun - another one that's so hard to find!

Not sure if you know this tip, but this is what I use when I want to search craiglist all around the country with one search:

site:craigslist.org Honda Aero 80

Using that search this morning, I found one in Harrisburg, PA:

https://harrisburg.craigslist.org/mcy/d ... 21789.html

That global craigslist search also turns up some other prospects.. most already sold and gone, but I didn't check out all the leads. I''ll leave that to you. The Harrisburg one may be all there is today.

Thanks for the tips. I've never found anyone on craigslist who wanted to work with someone out of state. Offerup ads seem to never expire, so while I've found items I want, they tend to be long gone. I'll keep up the search!

Greetings;

I tried your tip a couple of ways, Vintage Garage, without success. Can you break it down? Still trying to score an affordable PCX or other interesting toy.

Wheelman.. not sure what you mean.. I think you have to do it from the google search bar. Go to google.com and then enter it in the search field, or optionally, click on this link:

https://www.google.com/search?ei=SG9IXt ... CAo&uact=5

You will get a big list of prospects. If you click on one prospect link, and there isn't a PCX there, then it has been sold between when google indexed it, and when you did the command. Put Honda PCX in that craigslist search in that city and maybe there is another there. It does take some work..

Here is the search for Florida.. there is a ton of them:

Now that craigslist is charging $5 to list a motorcycle, some appear in other categories.. better have a complete look at:
