Hi folks, I sure am glad to find this forum! I have a low-mileage 2008 Zapino that doesn't run due to what the indicator light reports as a throttle malfunction. I've been having a devil of a time finding anyone (including ZapWorld, whose US operation seems to have gone belly-up not long after I bought my scooter, sigh) to help me get it repaired. I bought it out in Durango, Colorado from Baker McKonly, a really great guy who could fix anything but now I'm in Asheville in western North Carolina & have not found anyone local to swap notes with.
Are any of you folks in my general area? I'd love to get together if you have an interest, and I'd also love to find someone fairly local with more experience than me that I could hire to help get my scooter going.
I'm trying to fix it up to sell it, I loved riding the Zapino but the new place just I moved to is not in a scooter-friendly traffic area -- lots of narrow winding mountain roads with fast drivers on blind turns. So I guess I'm also interested to hear if there's folks out there looking to buy a 2008. My apologies and please correct my etiquette if I haven't figured out the structure of this site well enough yet to figure out if there's also a separate place I should talk about looking for a buyer.
Best to you all & look forward to hearing from you soon,
