Briton Bees? Cool.

Thought the Scooterati here would like to see these beauties.
Briton is a local company and Acme hauled some of his stuff to Barber and back. It's the first time I'd seen them in person so I snapped some pics.
For contrast, a shot with a CB350 race bike.
They're very neat in person. The white one is a 70cc and the gray one is a 90 maybe? I forget.

Yeah, they're both 'peds.
The white one will do about 70mph.

Have drooled over their website many times - essentially modded-out mopeds/board-racer bikes with cafe' racer styling - very retro and very, very cool...

OMG it's in Asheville.

That's a 3 hour ride from here.

I'll need to rob a convenience store along the way. But I must own one.

Kraven...you're hurtin' me here.

My feelings exactly. When planning trips the mid-south, I alternately plan to get to Asheville and to avoid it, lusting to see the Bees in person and afraid that I'll order one if I do.

These things somehow combine Old School Brit/cafe' design appeal and Kitted-Moped Juju in the same package - almost irresistably cool...

Yep, that combo pushes the right buttons for me, too.

Danger, danger...

I usually hit CL pretty hard after surfing the Moped Army site, too.

Moped Army - the shizz right there is worse then heroin. The astonishing and fantastic creations some of those peeps have made out of Seventies frames, parts, chunks...the mini-cafe' racers, dropped bars, curvy stingers...

A modded-out Tomos ST was one of the little bikes sold off when we determined to do the 12-step thing and reduce the bike-count to a reasonable and affordable number. We'd had eleven since May, '08; at one point, six simultaneously...Suzuki, Honda, Vespa, Lifan, Yamaha...no hope, there is no hope...
