...and at no additional cost, thought I'd throw in some neato scoots from that era and side of the pond:

If you absolutely have to have one, Blue Moon Cycle has one for sale near Atlanta


There's a guy down the road from me who restores old skoots. I know I've seen him on Mustangs, and a zundapp. He has some harleys and triumphs, but is definitely partial to the more refined and leisurely pace a scooter offers. The funny thing is he kinda looks like he ought to be in ZZ top

Petr Beagle and a buddy rode two cross country in the sixties. The book is called "I see by my outfit".

Yes, always make sure that your tires, gloves, and helmet match...
