    The Honda Aero was my first scooter. I bought it used for $300 in 1989 and rode it into the ground.

    It was a fantastic scooter. Pretty fast actually for a 50 and it handled really well, very flickable but with enough stability to feel comfortable on the road.

    I actually like the styling of it too. It's far superior to an Elite, kind of like my Vespa S actually.

    I've kept my eye out for a good used 125 or 80 since then but for some reason the Aero's were pretty rare.

    They should of kept the body on that one! Do the "battle" thing with a Riva or an Elite. ;-)

    I just sold a decent and running 1984 Aero 80 for $500!

    I wonder how much that custom job costs… A grand? More?
