Does anybody have experience or advice on a Schwinn scooter?

A co-worker's Dad has a 2006 Collegiate for sale. Only has 191 miles. Not sure why so few miles.

Are these decent or junk? Any advice appreciated.

I've got one in my wood shed lol, buddy brought it over to get running, got it running and it's been here over a month, that's how much he values it! I personally am not a fan, cheap Chinese parts, weighs more than a Harley, rides high. To each thier own though, I'm still the "new guy" so I've got a biased opinion with my only scoot experience being with Hondas!

If it runs and rides away for cheap enough it's something to scoot on! There's always that point of view.

The word is he is looking for closer to $1,000. Thinks the 191 miles is worth a lot? I will be passing.

Thanks for your advice!
