WAY cooler than a Vespa.

Some of the German,  And Japanese scooters were also pretty cool.

If you see modern Italy,  it looks like they all have modern scooters.

It is surprising.

Monocoque chassis
No chain
Can carry a spare wheel under the side panel

Of course everything started to go downhill with the T5...

To each their own though I guess...

I had two hopped up P200Es when I was younger.

One with a Malossi kit and the other with a Pinasco twin induction.

Those were fast bikes in the day. The kits today are pretty cool.

All of the cool kids rode Lambrettas. The closest I came was a Serveta that a friend left at my house while he was overseas.

Metal scooter prices are insane these days.

A coworker of mine bought a rusted old Lambretta and completely rebuilt it over a summer. It came out absolutely beautiful looking brand new. The two stroke engine sounds awesome too. Every time he rides it he gets asked "Do you want to sell it?"

Lambrettas are beautiful bikes.

Vespas are cool, too. Not the same style.

My older brother rode a Cushman scooter in the late 1950s.

He had a ducktail haircut to go with it.

Went from that to a 750 Norton.

Cool scoot.



Link Posted: 2/23/2021 5:20:56 PM EST
I bugged my Dad to pick one up but he flatly refused.
Said only guys that squat to piss ride those fucking things.

Years later I rented one for a day in Mazatlan and being the accomplished rider that I was , I promptly wrecked it and spent the rest of the day behind a market buying/borrowing tools to straighten it out.
Dropped it off and tossed the guy behind the desk the keys and GTFO out of there.

LOL

Shouldn't be hard to find a M51 parka in the US...

Or you could splurge and get a real genuine fake one... https://shop.thewho.com/products/quadrophenia-parka

One thing I've never been able to figure out though is what liner Jimmy had in his... I had the same parka back in the day

Varusteleka is selling their own version now. https://www.varusteleka.com/en/product/sarma-windproof-fishtail-parka/61258

Mine is arriving Thursday. Debating on whether to paint it like the cover of Quadrophenia.

I'd forgotten he was in that...

He's always been a bit of a cowboy...
