The cops pulled me over wondering if I was the 'maniac on a blue scooter' that drivers had been complaining about. Maybe it was you Evil or Very Mad

Hello all! I just got stuck with a 86 Riva 80. I'd post a picture but its a busted up death trap at the moment. I currently own a 07 Genuine Buddy 125 so the Riva will be a toy/project. I just sold my 04 Yamaha Zuma 50 with a Stage 1 kit and last year sold my 05 Zuma with a Stage 2 kit so I know what I'm getting into with a 2 stroke. The 86 Riva runs great, just gotta get some new parts and de-ugly it a bit. Think I'm gonna go with a street fighter theme since the panels are in such bad shape. I'm in Norfolk, VA so the scooter scene here is pretty much just for transportation. Will attempt to post pictures so you all can laugh at my "find". For $125 it would be worth it for parts but it runs good and I've always loved Yamaha products, so I'm gonna put it back on the road. Wish me luck!

Hi!

I recently purchased a 1982 Beluga CV80 (originally mislabelled as a 1986). My first ever vechicle (I don't even know how to drive a car). Looking forward to freedom!

(From Hamilton Ontario)

Just had Ronny's Beluga from Montreal delv'd yesterday, kinda decent shape but the full size windshield is a major BONUS!!

Looking for a new ignition switch, this one has been drilled out...

I'm new to the forum, and just wanted to introduce myself. I just bought an '83 CV80 with 3000 miles. Got it for little more than a song. It's been sitting in a garage for twenty years, so I have some work to do, but I'm looking forward to getting it running.
All the electrical looks good, got a new battery and spark plug, cleaned the carb real good, and now I'm turning my attention to some parts that are broken, missing, or completely unknown to me haha. I'll need some help, but I'll post my questions under the appropriate topics. Glad to have a community of scooter fans to turn to though!

Hi Everyone, I just purchased my 83 Red CV80 scooter 7/28/2010, runs great. Wanted to thank everyone here cause I was reading thru all the articles before I decided to purchase it. The turn signals do not come on but headlight, horn and break light works great, and the original owner luckly had the original owners manual, but missing the windshield. Im planning to just ride it as is then well plan to restore it.

Thx
Dan

Welcome aboard! Minus some minor "learning" curves with any older scooter you will get hooked! Was going to restore mine as well but as soon as I can find parts I have a stupid/crazy idea for my 86 Riva 80. Have fun with it, thats what scooters are all about.

sc00ter, nice to meet you and all otheres here on forum. Yea, for now, it rides like everyone says, goes 30 mph quickly then to 40 but takes alittle time. What I really want to do first is to see if I can do some modifications to get it up to 50 or possible 55 mph. Once I get that, then my plans are to go thru the bottom up to restore it. I am really amazed this old scooter really rides well. It goes to show the older ones really hold their own. I see alot of new scooters chinese models that look very nice but they really do not hold up well to wear and tear like yamaha CV80s.

Hello everyone, im 21 and just got back into my cv80, I use to take it to high school about 3 years back (with no plate or insurance) lol, and stored it after that. After trying to get it to start up it again, the fuel was drowing the chamber. So deleted the petcock and now runs good. I will post pics up soon, Its has a custom paint job, camaro blue and White stipe down the middle. I am also restoring it back to stock as best as i can. Ebay is great found rare front brake cabel. Also I am trying to get it on the road for street leagal use. Do I need an inspection?

Blue w/ white stripe sounds cool!
Up here in Canuckland we do need an inspection/safety/certified, check your local laws in TX.
