A kid at heart, enthusiatic for vintage scooters. (Notation: updated email and scooter list Apr 2010)
Scooters I own:
Douglas Vespa Rod Model
Former basket case, restored to its lizard-green glory.
Former basket case; Pearl ivory restoration circa 2000. Easy to ride and fun. Two-seater on left in picture.
Same pearl-ivory as the LI. Great motor and gearing. Two sets of side panels: a matching pearl version and an Italiano version. Left and middle pics: 2007 after. Right pic: 2003 before.
April 2010 purchase. The motor was customized from a US LI150 engine, to ~14HP: 190cc Granturismo reed-valve, 24mm Mikuni, uprated clutch & gears, 12V conversion, exp. pipe. Still "re-Italian-izing" the rest of the scooter, which was a former nammer.
Here are a few of my favorite rally pictures. slideshow
