Li150 Series 2

Hi Folks

I heard about this scoot for sale a couple of weeks ago on the Geuzentour. Drove over to Liege last night to buy it.

Really good original paint, dusty underneath but it just needs a good clean and will come up well with a bit of wax polish. It even has the original tool roll and keys. The seller said he hadn't used it for eight years which sounded about right to me. It wouldn't start but apparently petrol can go off in just six months. He gave me the paperwork. First registered in Belgium 1960. I reckon it might even win "best barn find" if I entered it in the Antwerp custom show in February. :)

Got my hands dirty draining the old petrol. It had been in there eight years and you can really smell the difference, no fumes at all, just a dull oily liquid. For some reason it was inky black but with the two stroke oil mixed in seems to have preserved the inside of the tank. I also opened the float bowl of the carb and cleaned the thin filter before sponging all of the old fuel out of the bowl with a clean rag. Put it all back together with a bit of new plastic pipe, some new petrol and it started second kick. It appears to run quite well although this was out the back so it was only turning the engine over.

Waiting for the insurance paperwork to come through now.
