I have a feeling this guy wont be much good for providing an accurate history. Looks like he has a yard full of old s#!t.
    The GY6 likes some very simple upgrades. Slight upjet, yellow contra spring, port matching, and a lower final drive ratio. Don't get sucked into "no rev limit" CDIs, air filters, and especially carburetors and cams.

    If you want power beyond that the only sensible way is to do a big bore kit. The cheap ones are "okay" but I've become a fan of Taida. Check out Martin Mopeds.

    Got all excited about this one. Coolster 250. Drove for 2 hours to see it with cash in hand, but it was just too trashed and rusty. And he wanted $800...

    That thing looks pretty cool! The 250 motor was a liquid cooled motor with about 16HP and more potential than a GY6. That frame looks relatively light and the short wheelbase has to be a blast in the woods. Too bad we're all full grown.

    It is cool. I fit in it OK, I'm 5'9", 180 lbs. I wouldn't say super comfortable, but I could get used to the size. It's bigger and heavier than it looks. Still, I'd have paid the $800 if it wasn't so rough. Real bad rust in places, engine turns over - but doesn't run, few broken and missing parts, brakes (3 disk) frozen, steering very hard to turn, wiring was pretty much spaghetti, and all the rubber bits were toast. It's a shame how people treat their toys

    Tires look a bit deflated. Looks like it has potential.
