Shouldn't this be "Scooters for SHORT guys who hunt"?
What on earth would you be shooting with a (double) barrel shotgun from that height? My guess is the recoil kicked him ass-over-tea-kettle into the trees (since he's not aligned properly with the support legs).
Meh...you can use a shotgun for just about anything. But no one yet has commented that once the contraption retracts he has a really kickass passenger seat.
The other question is: how does he climb up there (with a loaded weapon) without tipping the whole mess over? Unless that telescoping pole is hydraulic, in which case I'd be real interested in how it's powered.
It would be a kickass passenger seat if it weren't retracted. Just watch for power lines and low bridges.
The picture is either photoshopped or depicts something that appears to be mounted on but is actually mounted behind the Lambretta D/LD...
WHat looks to be a double barreled shotgun is a three barreled 'Drilling" common to Europe. Two shotgun barrels and a rifle underneath. Makes a heavy weapon, but popular where civilian gun ownership is restrictive and huniting opportunities are for those who can pay $$$. I really doubt this is photoshop, looks real. Late 1950's-1960's
No it would take 2 hours plus to photoshop something like this. Europe and hunting it wouldn't shock me that someone made a one off stand. Rather then carrie a tree stand someone made one.
Here is a picture of a semi-naked Lambretta LD. Looks doubtful the frame could support that type of load.
Sure it might be photoshopped, but your conclusion from that picture is exactly opposite mine. That's a fairly hefty frame with suspension and cross members right below the supposed stand and the scooter you picture is built to seat 2 people. So a few pounds of metal, just one person and those extra support legs seem entirely reasonable to me.
If I can save up the coin I'd love to get a fa 1919, then I could mount it to my honda elite
How did he get up in that elevated seat???
Actually, it looks to me like the seat post has 2 hydraulics of some sort. Then there are 3 legs to support it.
So maybe he can lower the seat and raise it when he's in it somehow?
It is a pretty strange pic though!
Perhaps not hydraulics but a hand crank somewhere off camera? Looks interesting - I lived in the country too long not to be surprised by some of the inventions hunters came up with. I've seen deer stands made of some weird things, a scooter wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility.
Could there be a screw assembly like Old Jacks or Piano Stool to raise the seat?
