    other scooter - what do you like?

    Post by NorthernJordan on Tue Mar 27, 2012 6:12 am

    Other than lambrettas and vespas, what other scooters do you like? There's some pretty funky ones out there, post new and old Smile

    I like this Ducati brio - wouldn't it be cool to say you owned a Ducati! Razz



    Maicos are pretty cool too...

    I do quite like the dragsters, for the weird looks, even tempted to buy one for getting to work on/generally bimbling about on. I'd have to matte black it tho (need to retain some credibility Embarassed ). Since seeing our Scotty's GTS at so many rallies I'm getting to like them; again I'd need to make sure the chrome and top boxes didn't find their way onto it if I did get one

    It went cheap for a reason. If all it needed was a new front pulley and a few other easy bits, why didn't the bloke just put do them and MoT and tax it? He would have got a good few hundred quid more... Look at how the exhaust sits against the frame for a start

    Yes, good performance. There was a big article in classic scooterist scene about them, had loads of racing specials with some clever designs.

    Like dragsters and would have one.
    Know someone who maybe selling a t5 for 500 though but some cunt has told him it's worth more so now he's being a cunt.
    We'll see what happens.
