Go to www.craigslist.com to look for bikes. You will need a US address to register it. I can help with that.

Suggestions

www.cycletrader.com always has some good deals. Classified ads in the various L.A. newspapers are worth a look as well, I've listed a few. www.dailynews.com, www.latimes.com, www.headlinespot.com, www.langnews.com. Also www.onlinenewspapers.com, you can find other newspapers with classified ads in and around the area you are going to purchase a scoot. Hope this helps.

Good luck
Charlie

You will need to show proof of insurance when you register the bike and pay state sales tax on the bike (7.25% based on the price of the bike) when you register it.
