Blanco & Free Spirit

Got a V1 Gloria Intermotor Blanco. It is the "ciao"ist looking v1 powered moped I've ever seen. I also picked up a very mint red free spirit. I like auctions, sometimes you can find deals, and I didn't strike out today.

Reunited and it feels so good.

As you may recall, long time blog readers, I had a wonderful AD a while back in Seattle, and it ran so well that I sold it. At that point, I was moped cursed, and all my personal mopeds and even mopeds I borrowed broke. I realized that if I ever had a chance at another AD, I should take it, what ever the cost. One was discovered here in Lafayette and I traded two mopeds for it, a deal I would make again. It is 98% complete. Sadly, it is missing the kickstand, but I suppose I could make something work. It's a gem, and I won't let it go. Future upgrades include cylinder porting, circuit pipe, perhaps an upgraded carb, and certainly many many miles.
