Nice pics.
We owned a photography studio for 29 years, no "clothing consultation" was necessary. I said, "What are you wearing?"... then said, "What am I wearing?"

Nice Lammy, Fizzy. There's something so "elemental" about those old scoots that's very appealing.

Hiya

They're a mixture of 125cc and 150cc two-strokes.

With the exception of the Model A, the gears are shifted on the L/H handlebar twistgrip - using a teleleflex cable. The later models had two cables - one pushing - one pulling the gear selector in/on the crankcase.

The Blue Model A has a 'toe and heel' gear selector on the right of the footboard with the rear brake pedal at the rear of it - it's a bit of a 'black art' shifting smoothly TBH.

Oh, and the Model A (1946) and B (1947) have the brake linings attached to the inside of the drum, with just metal shoes pressing against them when the brakes are applied - rather than on regular brake shoes as we know them.

Thanks- quick iPhone pictures- my hands were freezing as I usually ride the BMW during cold weather (windshield, hand guards, heated grips...)

Yes, top picture is the Concord covered bridge which looked surprisingly shabby. The other with the mural is an old building near the railroad tracks in town near where I live.

I'm ready for spring....
