Wow I haven’t posted for some time. Had a bit of a rough July. I’ve been overloaded at work, always am this time of year but have had a lot of flooded homes to fix this year too. I am also sad to say my Grandfather passed away this month. He [...]
I took the Scout out for a ride on the 4th and it died on Main street in Rockland. It just up and quit no hiccups or complaints. The obvious things to check were fine so I pushed. I walked the bike about a mile back to my business. My only [...]
I believe I have found the cause of my odd random noise.
Seems that the front mounting tab for the lower half of the chain guard was bent inwards causing the tip of the bolt to hit the chain at times. I simply bent it out and it seems fine. Took it for my [...]
It runs! I put the battery in the scooter this morning, put some fresh gas in it and started it up. It took a few attempts to start as it had to suck the fuel in to the carburetor. Once it did it fired immediately. It didn’t need choke for long [...]

The summer before last I received a brand new Fly Scooters La Vie for a review. This was a new model at the time, produced by ZNEN one of the better Chinese manufacturers. Now every one is selling this model. That is the way of Chinese scoots. Your probably [...]
I sold my 1982 C70 Honda Passport. I had it listed on Craigslist for a few weeks. Got several calls but one finally came and saw her. I wish the new owner the best of luck with it. First order of business is I have to pay my tax burden to [...]
This is one of the reviews I did a couple years ago. At the time the CADENZA was a brand new import model. It’s now been around a couple years and almost every internet site and several “importers” offer this same body style scoot. My data will apply to most of the [...]
