flood victim VX-1 available for FREE in SE PA

I got this from ElectricLou in 2015.
Been taking up space in my garage and now I'm thinking about moving, so it has to go.
It has all the electrics in it, but they surely didn't survive the flood. (Hurricane Sandy at the Jersey Shore, so it was flooded with salt water. ElectricLou said the water did not get high enough to flood the charger.) He said the bike was flushed with fresh water immediately after and soaked with WD-40, so frame and other metal parts should be fine.

I have not moved it in a few years. Last time I tried, the back wheel seemed to be stuck, so maybe bearings are shot.
I know the motor encoder is not good - I opened it for some reason a long time ago and it was corroded and damaged. Not sure if the motor windings are OK or not, but I would suspect so. Maybe could be revived with a new encoder and new motor controller and battery pack. Has the original NiMH pack still in it, of course.

Hi Kevin, I may take it if you have a title for it, I have an 2007 with no title and can possibly get mine legal if I swap out the frame and any other parts with a VIN on it. Where are you located in PA?

If Kevin cannot find the title I gave him, I have a NJ one for my other sandy damaged Vectrix that was taken apart and scrapped for aluminum.

@ZundappBella - I do indeed have the title. I never transferred it into my name, but that doesn't matter.
Let me know if you want to take it.

Not sure what good a title that doesn't match the unit is. If you still had the parts with the VIN on it he could use your title.

I think most states have a title search you can do if you lose the title for those that received a vehicle w/o proper title. It's not quick.

Hi Kevin, I have someone who may be interested in buying my bike so if you can come up with someone who may want it go ahead and give it to them, If I don't sell it and you still have it in a couple of weeks I'll probably come up and get it. Thanks for looking for the title.
