After much struggling internally,,,the SYM wolf or the stella,,,,turning it over in my mind 5000 times the stella wins,,,,so when i get my "mad money" together which will be this week off i run to get the beast!!!!more to come
i wanted to have a scooter ,,,it is a wonderful pack mule,,,it's unbelievable,,,i can carry 4 bags of groceries and a case of beer on the et,,,and i took the rear rack off the thing cause it screwed up the look,,,so if reinstalled 2 more bags,,,plus the 100 mpg real tested figure not the 140 in the sales brochure,,,quicker/faster cause of the 4 speed ,,,and except for the cheesy switchgear i hear of no real issues with the machine,,,and actual vespa oem parts are to be had on ebay,,,,i did find Sym parts but support is weak,,,with the pinasco pipe and carb and a shock change i think i'll have a winner....then it's the sym
Hey ! If he keeps up with the maintenance on the stella , it's not a bad scoot !! Others may differ on that. A friend of mine has one with 15000+ miles. Only recently has he had to replace the stator . Otherwise its pretty much stock ! willc.

i'm all about the spinning of the wrenches,,,after a desmoquatro s4 monster this stella is going to be like working on a piece of firewood,,,,these things were and are made for the use and abuse of life in india where the tool kit is a rock a rag and a glass of brown water,,,they are stones
It's getting close my brothers!!!!!! oooooooo i can smell the 90 weight as i type,,,,one more day closer,,,,the feeling never goes away even after all the bikes i've had,,,,i watched a few videos on youtube from india,,,guy rolls up to a construction site where they're building a multi story building,,,puts a couple peices of wood under the stella takes the rear wheel off ,,puts a modified rear rim on ,,and they use it as a lift for the materials to the roof where there is a large tripod gantry with a pulley,,,rope wound up on the modded rear rim,,,when the load is real heavy 2 guys have to sit on the scoot,,,at the end of the day he puts the rear rim and tire back on and rides off,,,amazing
