    I wonder what a Megola is like to ride? All that weight on the front must make it interesting.

    Ha! Should have googled it before asking the question.



    Sounds great! (When there’s no wind noise on the vid)

    An old Suzuki, an old snowmobile, and a long New York winter can create things like this. 15008.jpeg

    On those old bikes, it's not the riding that's scary, it's the stopping!

    To make the operation even more "interesting" they had no clutch. If the engine is running, the wheel is rolling.
    So,,,, not a city-friendly machine.

    The Whizzer is a nice specimen as is the Gold Wing, but I would sure like to see more of that Suzuki X6 Hustler in the background.

    Don't have a photo of that, but he has a lot of others. The Steffey is one of two in existence, I believe. I think Barbers has one.

    Or in the case of that Megola, the starting again after stopping. Imagine stop & go traffic, when you have to restart it every time with the front wheel on the stand. Even for it's day, it doesn't seem very practical.

    I hoped to see one at the Deutsches Museum on a trip to Germany last year, but if they still have one in their collection, it wasn't on display.

    I'll post a pic too so I don't get banned.

    You can buy this Kiwi Indian brand new:

    errrr Looks like a Kinroad XT 50-18 to me.....

    Can’t say I’d ever seen one before. Or since. Parked by the river Isar, in Munchen.

    That Guzzi has some awful pretty lines! Not a bike you see on this side of the ocean very often.

    F-head, with its distinctive tank cutout for the exposed overhead intake valve & rocker. Side exhaust valve is also exposed.
