    these pictures don't do them justice. when you see them in person, the solid steel bodies are fucking dope.
    i used to help my friend work on his scooters several years ago, cuz he was a mod dork. i wanted one but could never afford one. i would still love to have a sixties allstate. i just hate the ska/rudeboy or mod bullshit that's associated with scooters, so if you wanna learn about fixing them from others, be prepared to meet some dorks.

    those were some sweet lambrettas and a nice vespa GS you posted... it dosen't seem like there's too much ska shit associated with them as much anymore, since ska isn't as trendy. lots of skins sill into scooters, and some mods here and there... who cares who's into them, i still love 'em.

    to the guy that claims to have found a bunch of vespas in working condition for cheap at a junkyard....

    a. stop lying.
    b. in the impossible chance that you were telling some stretch of the truth...what city do you live in.

    c. if you want a vespa that actually runs very well. you might check the BAJAJ when the UK had rule over India, they made vespas there. when UK split with india, BAJAJ kept making the scooters. Vespa tried to sue but lost. so BAJAJ makes a vespa scoote. its no 60's model but its far better than any "vintage clone" or some beat up vespa that is far more trouble than good cause you will never get it running.

    check it out... www.bajajusa.com

    oh and they are cheaper than any of the scooters on the market and its 145cc .

    sixteen.

    oh...p.s. they just started importing them to the USA like this month. so you cant get one till february
