    A while back, Kelly, who buys and fixes wrecks, found me this transit. Id been looking for one for awhile, but I'm too cheap to buy a new one. He picked it up from the body shop today, im heading to Kansas this weekend to get it.
    Im really looking forward to it. It'll be the new dougmobile, but of course I'm not selling my truck.

    This is before and after.

    If you can import and register one from the US, there may be some business opportunities for you to discuss with the owner of above scooter... :D

    That particular model is frequently used as training bike within Motorcycle Safety Foundation which is one of the US accredited motorcycle license institutions so they are out there...

    Went to the Luga Seca GP races last century and got entertained at half time with burnouts.

    Winer by popular demand was an old Triumph twin.

    He shifted up thur the gears with his hand on the shifter,

    Got it rocking in high gear and the crowd went crazy.

    Smoke that you could not see thru.

    Tire blew and took the rear fender with it....sky high.
