But what is it???
It’s the CF Moto Fashion 250!
The fellow Gambler drove a hard bargain and sliced his price in half after hearing that I was going for shop-teacher’s Helix.
Agh, as much as I wanted that brilliant red scoot the guy knows my kryptonite: Profit.
The Gambler Chuckus is getting massive attention on Facebook with even a couple offers more than the ask. All in all, I’d actually make about $300.
So....... I bought it.
This thing is extremely well built. Two boots, both lined and sealed, thick molded in colour panels, and steering that is light without feeling wobbly like most Chinese scooters. It’s also deceptively light. It weighs about as much as my Rebel did, however when you’re sitting on it you don’t feel the weight.
It’s about as long as my Goldwing, too.
It’s going to need a new battery and a new carb, however it’ll be an easy project and fun winter ride. It even has new rubber.
For those keeping score, in less than 6 months I’ve purchased 8 motorcycles and so far sold 3 of them. I hope to have the Chuckus gone in less than a week. While I subscribe to the N+1 rule I cannot comfortably own more than four bikes, especially if three of them are older than I am.
