Hi from Norfolk, VA

It seems Adly has little to no love online, so Im here to hopefully bring some attention to the brand with the help from a established website. I used to be big into the Zuma bugeye scene but got out of it for awhile. Then a 2 for 1 deal on Zumas came my way. Got one running and was having fun with it as a simple Stage 1 build. One day my wife and I stopped by a grand opening for a scooter shop and I made the remark about liking the ugly little Adly RT50. Later that day, a yellow one showed up in our driveway for my birthday. Space in the garage is tight (wife has a Can-Am Spyder and I have the other Zuma on the lift in pieces-our Burgman 200 beater lives outside) so I sold the running Zuma. Now Im learning the ins and outs of the RT50 and what does and doesnt fit from a Zuma/Minarelli horizontal motor. Scrappy Dog has been a huge help so far. Why do these little scooters keep coming into my life I will never know.... So thats my short intro. Thanks for reading.

Scooters are like old lawnmowers and puppies... if people know you will take them in they show up on your doorstep.

Sorta how I ended up with 2 Zumas. 1 belonged to a friend. Its super tuned, will hit 70mph! He just got tired of the upkeep so he bought a new Lance Cabo 200i and sold me the monster Zuma. I just wanted the motor for another project, so the rest of his old Zuma has been sitting around with no motor. Then I came across another Zuma for cheap with a stock motor that ran great but had some frame damage. So I slapped the stock motor in the once fast Zuma. I had no intention of selling the running Zuma until the Adly came about. I quit taking in stray scooters awhile ago. No space or time for them.Will keep a eye out for a weird brand for friends, but I wont pre-purchase them anymore. Dont wanna get stuck with another Hyosung Sense SD50 or a Yamaha Beluga 80cc 2 stroke ever again. I also hate trouble shooting/fixing scooters. I work on small engines for a living so once I leave work I dont wanna work on any. I work on what I built/tuned, and its also a side hobby among a few friends. Strange thing is no one has been setting up group rides yet. Wife and I tried to organize one to a pinball arcade but everyone complained about it being to far of a ride. I need new riding buddies sometimes!
