Scooter Update

So we didn't get a chance to pick up my scooter until this morning. And it turns out things were not exactly as they seemed...

First to clarify, the pictures and movie on the previous post were from two years ago when times were good :) I don't have a picture yet of its current condition...

Second as far as what actually happened when the police found it. The police found someone out riding it, stop him and found out (assumed) it was stolen. We weren't sure if it was the actual theif or someone who bought it. Based on the condition found we assume it was the theif because we don't know why anybody would have bought it and here's why...

It's condition was bad, it's been gone two years and looks like more. They drilled the gas cap, cut a big hole in the plastic to get to the ignition and steering wheel lock. They laid it down on the left side. The leather seat was peeling, Vin numbers are missing and basiclly damaged all over and was filthy.

It was a bit of a disappointment... And lastly the question was what will I do with it? I'll probably just give it away to someone who needs it. Or put both scooters on craigslist for what I can get. So if anybody wants a project, doesn't mind putting a little time and money into it let me know. Later...

I'm sorry Mark. You were probably pretty bummed out when you saw it. I know how excited you were. Was your license plate still on it? If the vin number was scratched out, how did they know it was yours? Sorry for all the questions. :) Hope you don't mind.

so here's my questions: how do you underline words?

(and sorry about your scooter, I'd be crushed, I get attached to things I love like that, like my first little rinky dinky car 1984 nissan sentra, I'll love it forever, may it rest in peace)
