Hey all,
I've noticed quite a few online vintage scooter shops from Vietnam. Do any of you have experience buying from one of these? Are their any more reputable than others? I'm a little sketched out by send a couple grand to somebody that far away and waiting for a month to get a scoot.
thanks for your input!

beware! i've heard scootersRS is ok, but i think most of them are scams and many of the scooters are dangerous!

lurk here or join and ask in the "illegal and bad scooters" forum:

if it sounds too good to be true, it is!

i'd go to scooterville and buy a nice bike from bob.

You can always find something better in the states, or even in Minnesota. The only one that *might* be alright is scootrs, but even their stuff isn't always 100% after shipping they are still quite expensive. There are a number asain bikes in town, but for some reason you never see them being riding....

stay away..

Well I don't mind saying they are total SHIT.

I don't care if they are from Scootrs or Johnny beware or a friend of a friend who is a missionary. Vietnamese scooters SUCK SUCK SUCK.

They are a TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY. PERIOD.

If you buy one from there you are making a HUGE mistake. I have seen way too many VN scooters and the owners are always VERY disappointed.

Trust me and stay away.

If you do buy one don't expect any help from scooter shops in the U.S. Most will NOT TOUCH THEM! They are a major liability.

If you want a nice vintage scooter expect to pay some dough for it. The nice ones are NOT CHEAP.

Sounds like they're as bad as I feared. I won't waste my time looking at them. I'll focus on scooters in the states.
thanks for your inpunt!
