Scooter for Sale and a Weekend of Grandparent-itis!

First, I would like to mention that since we have our little Tracker to tow behind the motorhome, we have decided to sell our Scooter and carrying hitch rack for our motorhome as a package deal for $1,500.  If any of you kind readers know of someone who might want to buy it, let them know and there is a nice pair of handmade socks in it for ya! Located in NE Wisconsin.

1986 Honda Helix, 250cc, only 12,600 miles 

This great scooter rides 2 people comfortably, travels at highway speeds (or higher) and gets 60+mpg.
This is not a little toy miniscooter, but a large 2 person road licensed vehicle. The wheelbase is 65" long.
Liquid cooled engine. Twist N Go type throttle, no manual shifting required. Synthetic oil in engine.  Weighs 350 pounds.

Recently new tires, new battery, a new higher windshield than original, passenger back rest with storage pouch. Rear luggage rack, and enclosed rear trunk area that holds an amazing amount of cargo. Special locking feature of turning front wheel to one side and locking into place, aids in theft-prevention. Digital dash readout includes speed, fuel level,  and a clock.

Runs great and is easy and comfortable to ride and drive.  It is called a "Barcalounger Ride".  Easy to mount and dismount with comfortable seating and leg room.  Very quiet and dependable. Garage kept, and has some small scrapes from the rack, and cracked front grill that has been glued.

Included is a sturdy custom fitted rack that carries the scooter with two padlocked hasps for security. One hasp is at the handlebars and one hasp is at the side of seat to lock into place on the rack. Ramp attaches on end of rack to enable you to throttle the scooter up as you walk alongside,  and to remove scooter, you can roll it backwards easily down the ramp.  The ramp stows on two pegs and clips onto the rack when in transit.

The rack inserts into a 2" reciever hitch, and you can also add another 1" reciever to your vehicle for added stability. The ramp and track will accomodate 4 1/2" inch width tires. There is another ball hitch on rack so you can tow another hitch item at the same time.

The scooter has a clear title, cash only accepted.  No checks, no payment plans.   We are willing to include two white half shell helmets, one M and one L, and 2 large rain coats with full price offer

We are willing to sell the rack and scooter separately
Helix scooter $1,300
Hitch mount rack $200



After spending 2+ weeks on the road for vacation, we sure made up for the lack of seeing the grandkids this weekend!   First we took Jameson on Friday, where Steve took him at work right from Heather as she came into work. (they both work at the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay)   Jameson had a blast with us, and we found lots of fun stuff to do.  Here is checking out my birch trees in the front yard.

Then on Saturday, we added Chelsea to the nest, and had her overnight so her mommy could preform the Matron of  Honor duties at Heather's bachlorette party and Mark could go hunting early in the morning (bow season)    Friday, Oct 8 is their wedding day!   Chelsea got to post by the birch trees too! 

Then on Sunday we joined up with little Allegra at cousin Jen's baby shower!   (we have to get a shot of her by the birch trees yet)

Steve's mom was feeling good enough to attend the shower too, so she got to see all three of the little great grandchildren, plus the new baby on the way in Jen's belly!  It was so nice to see her out and about a bit and with family.

Ohhhhh being a Granmuddah is quite a lot of fun, dontcha think?


  1. Good to see you had a Grand weekend, The kids are really growing fast. be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  2. Your scooter post makes me want to sell my Honda Shadow 1100 & buy your Motor Scooter:)) I'll slip you blogsite into my post tonight....

  3. As a Harley guy, I couldn't bring myself to ride a scooter, just not my style, but the knit socks almost have me considering it anyway :)

    The time with the grandkids sounds like it was wonderful! They look like very sweet kids! Lucky kids to have such fun Grandparents!

  4. That is a great deal! Someone will jump on that very soon, I feel sure.

    The babies are adorable... you are a very lucky Grandmuddah!

  5. I'm glad to hear that Steve's Mom is feeling much better, and could attend the shower.

    I have never been on a scooter before but it looks like so much fun. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm at the optimum age to try it out!

  6. Looks like such fun. They are adorable! Nothin better than being a grandma...
    In response to your questions. My little guy got his curls from his mom and the spider man outfit at Target. He just loves spider man!!

  7. They are so cute. Love the birch tree pics.

  8. We would like to get a scooter, but our problem is that we need to figure out a way to mount it on the front of the MH, which isn't an easy matter. That would be too much weight on the back. We may look into things down in Mexico, it would be real handy to have one down there!

    The grandchilden are growing so fast, glad you got to spend time with them.

  9. Your scooter is a great buy, I'm sure it'll go quick...and you'll miss it, too.

    Lovely picture of you and the grands! Nothing better, is there?
