Dang!! They's three of you?!! That would explain the plethora of rides and scanty storage space. Sorry your "buyer" stank up the place. Do me a favor. Build more storage. Keep that Helix. Too purty to sell.

Image of triple-me taken by unknown at the "Distinguished Gentlemens Ride" of 2019.
It was said the photographer was trying to get a panoramic and this is what happened. Pretty cool. :rock:
As for the Helix, I'm not going to sell it until someone with the right pedigree and deep pockets comes along. Maybe not even then. My '93 Jog Artistic Spec. has lost some favor even though it served the term in stellar fashion, I'm finished with it I guess. It will sell first come Spring. An attempt to cull the herd seems prudent these days of uncertainty. Never know when a camper-van's gonna blow up your world. eh ?
Wishing you a happy and prosperous new year down thar' in Deepinnaharta. Keep them purty little Wheelieman scooters rollin'......... :coolcruise: ... :urban:

Crazy cool shot. Rare as NS's are, I did a double-take seeing 4 together. Tricky photo-guy. How did he superimpose the mini-cowl on the left one though?

Marching into February and it's cold.
The '93 Jog has been sold. In its place I have inserted the '84 Gyro for those every-day chores like going to the mailbox, rolling around litter bins, purchase of smoking amenities and products, etc... :urban:
There was an OEM basket on the Gyro when purchased. It was horrible. I sold it.
Would like to have a "glovebox"...or "package tray"...whatever the proper nomenclature.
Hello out there Spreedophiles, Elite-ists, Aeroheads, Expressions, and all you Hondafanatics. ....motor checking in.

Wow, just, WOW!! More than cosmetically acceptable, a true Jewel, at least from 8' away. I'd sure like to know more about how that funky 2-speed works, though.

Said goodbye to Mr. Helix today.
It only went down the street to new owner.
Previous Helix owner who has had a passion for mine since I got it.
Come on 70's temps. I've got a Yamaha to ride....motor

Saddened by your loss. You used to boast of the Helix's Babe Magnetism and Knee-draggin' ride height. Perhaps your neighbor's Pedigree and Deep Pockets turned the tide. At least you get to see it now and then. Majesty tuned up and ready to go?

Don't be blue. It was time and the right guy came around.
Yes, the Majesty is eagerly awaiting a jaunt tomorrow as the temps are forecast to
be in the 60's. Today, I bought a Johnny Pag Pagsta, red with silver flames, 49cc, 4-speed.
It may need a little TLC, but I know the bike having worked on it for the PO last year. Cheap buy @ $200.
Pix to follow if the camera doesn't make them too big again.
File photo for now.

Hmm! Will it remain a 50cc, or can one contemplate shoehorning in a 125? Perhaps with a 155 kit?

No chance I will spend much money on this bike.
It goes fast enough for its intended purpose.
I've never been much of a tuner anyway.

The above mentioned Urban Express was sold before unloading.
Bought with seller claiming "needs rings".
Found to have 140# compression.
Actual cause for a "no-run" condition to yet be determined,
however the first indication is a heavily varnished carburetor.
I still have my own Urban(silver), and now one of my friends has two.
First has been upgraded to 70cc, some springs and rollers, stock exhaust and carb, seeing 35+mph.
