Most of my money is spent on scooterparts. The rest is just wasted.

This bike is a limited edition reproduction made in the late 90's.
Yes, still somewhat rare, and in pristine, unmolested condition.
I got it with the intention to only ride it while cruising car shows and the like.

1986 Elite 150 Deluxe...added to the stable
...and then sold for a tidy profit. This bike was pristine selling for $1500.

Spent 2 years compiling a tad over 3k miles on my 2022 Honda Navi.
I never liked the firmness of the seat, and the rear brake is very weak.
Those are the only 2 complaints really, but the time had come to make a change.
Even before the Navi, what got me excited was the new CT125 Trail, also known
as the "Hunter Cub". However, those were really hard to come by at first,
and I got side-tracked by introduction of the Navi at a silly low price.
Fast forward a few years, and the Trail 125 has now become more obtainable.
At first, Trail only came in RED
and I wasn't having that.
Then, the possibility of a new color, Khaki Tan got my attention.
Somehow, that color never got released in USA, so abandoned that hope.
So today, after seeing this "Pearl Organic Green" on marketplace,
I made the deal and traded that Navi in for the Trail.

The CT125 Hunter Cub was not my favorite purchase.
I knew going into this that I really didn't care for the semi-auto transmission that Honda has used for decades.
Bought the bike anyway. I was sorry. STILL don't like that horrible, clunky, clutchless shifting.
SOLD IT today...on to better choices....motor
