Anyone into classic scooters?

Or feet forward motorcycles

My brother in law is mad about them and the more time i spend down his garage where he does them up the more i like them myself :smoke:

Cant say im into the whole mod scene but im liking the scoots more and more.

Anyone else like em?

I thought you were looking a bit lonely here, so I thought I'd answer you. I don't have any scooters but I have considered the odd one, like the Velocette Viceroy, The DMW Deemster and the Bambi.

Now those are classic scoots!! Rare as rocking horse shite too, deffo worth considering as a collectors piece though.I did think the lack of replies meant "no, not in a million years"

I can see a certain attraction - for a cheapish start the older Lambrettas were a doddle to work on, nice, simple engine and transmission unit and a great start in the wonders of port polishing and simple tuning. Cables for everything were a weakness (gears particularly could be a bit of a 'mare).Wonder if anyone still races them? Will have to have a Google... Years ago I picked up (having a van at the time) a rather dilapidated flat twin, shaft drive scoot for a workmate. Had a bit of a discussion on here some time ago about exactly what it might have been. Whatever it was it'll be worth a few bob now I'd think.

They deffo still get raced but its more the modern twist and go types they even do drag racing over the quarter mile lolGot offered a topper harley today, looked in good nick and for only £400 - i dont have the cash or room for it though

I think I am in the very small minority of people who like both classic scooters and supermotos.I run a KTM Duke 2 and a 1966 Vespa Sprint in London. I've had the Vespa for about 2 and a half years now and done about 10,000 km on her. Great for London commuting and tooling about in the summer, easy to work on, economical and looks very, very stylish.
