The short story of how I found this. I drove 40 miles to get this little italjet 50 for $100 from offer up.
I wanted it for the engine, a Minarelli G1, kickstart 50cc. You can swap the top end on these with P4s and P6s, and make a screaming 70 or 80cc little monster out of it.
We start talking mopeds, and the guy pulls back a tarp and says, "I got this for sale, too."
After crapping my pants, he told me the price, I said that's too much, he said, I said, he said "what about both for x amount of a dollars and I'll deliver it?"
And I said, "sold. See ya at my house."
Then I stopped at the Hat and got a pastrami sandwich and waited for it to show up.
I'm not gonna disclose what I paid, but it was less than I sold the scorpion for, so it was a bargain. And unlike the Ducati Piuma or my custom Testi Grand Prix, I don't have to spend a ton on parts, and months on labor.
And that's the end of my tale of hunting unicorns.
