So I just recently got a '79 Honda PA-50 ... love it love it! pedal pedal zip!
because it's such a silly little scoot (but I love it!), I want to "pimp" it up ... (what I wanted to do was get some of that purple chameleon paint - pipe dream, the $$ is ridiculous!) but my question is this: I've been getting some flak from family members about lowering the value of my scoot if I paint it ... is there really a huge value to these? would I 'ruin' it if I painted it? should I save things if I replace them (I want to get a longer rack behind the seat so I can bungee the ubiquitous milk crate on)
just for info: I got this from a family member, it stored in his barn. 134 original miles, parked in 1980 and not moved since. darn near sparkling except from where the first owner scuffed up the headlight.
thanks for your opinions!
