Hi everyone, I've just bought myself an Aprilia Atlantic which is a bit of a wreck and currently a non runner so hopefully I can lean on some of you guys for useful info :D
Will it ever run again :shock:

Welcome I had the Atlantic it was my first maxi scooter, if it's the first model try and cover the HT lead under the fairing about centre, I had cut out issues in the rain so a mechanic simply covered it with a small bag and tie wraps, that fixed it for me

Haha so i have ordered an engine and should be winging its way from Italy next week, even though i think the original engine will be up and running this week.
I still need a windscreen and left hand mirror if anyone has any old bits they don't need ?
Will it ever run again :shock:

Hi guys, just joined after saving a 99 Bergman 400an from the scrap yard, one of my friends had it for a commute and it overheated. That was 4 years ago and now i,m gonna try to bring it back, i,m hoping its just an head gasket. Is there anything else i should check out, seems too good to scrap with just 22,000 miles. Thanks in advance. Terry.
