    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.

    It was a beautiful day today with temps above 40 degrees so I went for a ride.

    The first scooter I ever rode, around 25 years ago.

    Nice Ride, Fizzy.
    That is something kind of rare in these parts.

    First post, hi everyone. Here's me at the Dragon on my '63GS that I restored. Hoping to get a BMW 650 of some variety in a short while for big trips and commuting. Cheers.
