HD Scooter

Craig Vetter is trying to put out scooter kits that use a HD engine.

I'm not too wild about that one, it seems too large and awkward and against what is so appealing about scooters in the first place. I'm sure the mpg will be good as HD's get pretty decent mileage

hmmmmm...the Vetter scooter....



Some of Vetter's stuff in the last few years has been...let's say..controversial?


"Many of us who were raised in motorscooters have a warm spot in our heart for them. Unfortunately, we don't look good on those old scooters anymore. Either we are too big or they are too small.They are fun to look at but not really practical.

My Torpedo design is everything we love in a scooter...big, fast, American. The look of our past. Made for us today."

I don't think Vespa has too much to worry about right now...
