Putting a 125CC two stroke Scooter in the Jeep possible ?

I am going to look at a minty rare 1984 Honda Aero Scooter tomorrow, Now I would have to lay it on its side - pretty much drain the gas / oil etc. Pretty easy cause its a two stroke. Any tips or hints based on manufacturer specs - I have 2 inches of extra height available, 2 inches in width, plenty of blankets, pillows drop clothes etc.

Any insight is appreciated - I did load a Puch moped in it a week ago and it was pretty easy. The scooter is 100 lbs more and couple inches bigger LWH - also going to have a very heavy *** end... can I do it ?

If it measures out that it'll fit and you feel comfortable putting inside, go for it. I don't see there being a weight issue. If in doubt borrow a small trailer or rent one if possible. Easier to load and the back of Jeep won't end up smelling like a small engine repair shop. Petty much your call on this.

If you have a trailer hitch, you can tow the scooter home, WITHOUT using a trailer. I towed a Honda 550-4 motorcycle 600 miles like this.

Rig up a way to lift the front wheel and attach it to the trailer hitch...lash it down tightly.
In my case, I removed the ball and replaced it with a short piece of steel channel that the wheel would sit into....then lashed it down.

Next, run stout ropes or lines one from each handle bar end to your luggage rack. Make them tight. If you do this right, this will secure the bike firmly in place.

Do a short test run and re-check everything to make sure nothing is slipping.

Take off for home....drive 55 or under. The back of the bike will lean as you turn and follow you where ever you go but the front wheel and and handle bars will not move.

I don't know if this is good or bad for the scooter engine and drive system. It was no problem for my Honda.
