Good memories

Oooh, that brings back memories of when I had a Vespa side car on my Allstate Cruisaire. Mine was not set up right either...the front wheel wanted to turn right, especially with a passenger. I was a kid and didn't have sense to have it corrected.

I still like your green....Go Windburn!

Maybe combined together we can keep up with Bonegirl but we'll need to get more serious.

Another Battle Scooter, done this winter in bedliner, with gloss black highlights.

Lots of new parts, tires, and this 25 year old beast is a smooth runner.

Please click to enlarge...

Just picked my first scooter up today!

Just picked up a '69 PC50. Spent about 4 hours cleaning it up, couple more doing some other little things, and away I go! I've wanted one since I was twelve!

It had the same oversized Slipstreamer windshield on it when I bought it. I always thought it was too big and cumbersome, so I cut mine down, to resemble the later, sleeker Elite and Helix windshields.

Nice score, Coop'd. I must admit that I'm highly jealous. Right after you wrote and told me you were thinking of getting this scoot, I began to look locally for one myself. All I found was a clean '87 Elite 250 with over 18,000 miles on it. The guy wanted $2100 for it. I want one, but not that badly
