Just as an FYI, the '48 Salsbury scooter that won was sporting a Ninja 250 engine. Seems like a fantastic piece of engineering that was done by Lee B.

The classifications were set up by year of manufacture as evidenced by the VIN, not the engine size. There is likely to be some tweaking to the rules as a result of this years race, like there has in past years.

Salsbury 250

I heard about this scooter so I went to see for myself.. The short version,,,, 'A REAL PIECE OF WORK' A very well engineered, quality and workmanship was tops.... Builder/rider was a real impressive young fellow,, (anyone is young to me, I am 76)

Lots of really nice people and cool scooters,, I may do the next run.....

Looks awesome!!!

I just missed them. They came within about 60 miles from me, would have taken a trip up on the Zuma if I would have known.
