Seen in Terni, Italy








When I was a kid we took the engine covers off our Vespas to stop them getting stoeln, which is apparently still a concern (or a habit) even though old two strokes are far outnumbered by modern twist-and-go scooters.

On the streets of Key West

Malaguti Yesterday I really like the Aprilia Habana/Mojito (in the embargo-happy US!)

Captain Outrageous

This businesman retires to Key West and takes to doodling a new paint job or two and it ends up as a second career. This is a Cushman three wheeler, an almost-scooter!This is a bonfide scooter, a Yamaha Razz I think:and an old reliable Honda Elite 50 in the inimitable Capt Outrageous style:and a close up:Signed and all. And it's parked on the street in the weather.

We were an eclectic group. Scooters AND motorcycles. Everything from Italian, Taiwanese, and Japanese scooters to American (my XL1200S) and Japanese (Brian's '80s Yamaha Virago 750) motorcycles.

No road snobbery. Good Times!

Does this count?



I think I built it, but there were copious amounts of beer consumed that night so I can't be sure. "They" tell me I did anyway!

Man I've had this "thing" for over ten years now. I use it as a beverage getter because I'm too lazy to walk the 300 feet to my beer fridge when I have a bonfire party!

Behold the Frankenscooter! Basically the remnants of an old minibike frame with a Honda Spree motor/tranny and front end. Electric-start, no clutch and plenty of room for refreshments. And everybody thinks the Ruckus was an original idea.

That Bike has Potential

Cronk if you should take that contraption to a scooter rally you would very likely be a candidate for Rat Bike and you may win a trophy.

Or be committed. My mileage seems to vary.
