Of note ...
there was no need to be concerned about ::
outside door handles, inside door handles, door locks, window cranks, side windows, didn't need a key to the trunk, the turn.signal auto.cancel, heater, air.conditioner, window defroster, radio (mine didn't have one), or seat belts.

Oh ...
And I remember that the top worked very well (as designed) !!

The owner of one of the auto shops I was working in years ago had a Bug Eye Sprite that he was restoring in the bodyshop half. Always though it was a cool little car. Got to drive it once. Had to throw a milk crate in to use as a seat (those were not done yet) but was a blast to just cruise around the block. :)

Cool little cars ...
Not much of a body to them ... lots of straight lines ... and those fender welts !!
Always loved the front cantilevered bonnet (the whole front end) !!

What was the max speed you have reached with 50F?
What would it be with a passenger? beside slow, can you give an estimation? 10mph? 15?
Thank you!

The one i tried would hit about 40mph, not sure about riding a passenger, but i think take off would suffer pretty bad riding 2 up.

It still tops out at 43, but it takes a lot longer to get there.

As with any small displacement ride, overall weight is the factor. Big difference between two teens who have a combined weight of 220lbs and two fat butts who top the scales at 500lbs!!! So you really can't say how fast with a passenger but rather how fast with X lbs of load. I know that my 250lbs affects my speed on my 2008 because most here are lighter and can go faster{or could when they were stock , now they go a lot faster}. Anybody know what the load capacity is for the Zuma 50f?

I doubt there will ever be anything larger than the 125cc and if they do it would be a 250cc.

All I am about to purchase a 2012 Zuma 50F. I need to put it into the back of my truck, any idea how tall they are? The website says 43", does anyone know if that includes the tall mirrors that stick up off the handle bars? Or is this just to the highest point of the handlebars/gauge cluster. Thanks for any help you can offer.
