Scooter was a HOOT to ride.. it is really agile and fun... You do sit up REALLY high.. but it's not too odd... You do feel like you sitting tall!!!!

Building this baby was a challenge, doubt I will be doing any vespa rebuilds any time soon.... :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-"

I'm glad we got Gretchen on it!!!! it put a big ol smile on her face!!!!
