An award-winning scooter, this 1962 Vespa Douglas Sportique Grand Luxe on eBay obviously doesn’t come cheap.
Yes, it does like an original at first glance. But at second glance you can obviously tell it isn’t. It’s the all-new Buzz 1 electric scooter.
This is essentially a Harrington G4, but it has been reworked for practical reasons by Baracuta as the Harrington D4.
Lovely example of a 1962 Lambretta Li 150 Series 3 on eBay right now.
Just spotted a couple of new scootering books coming up later this year, those being Vespa by Gunther Uhlig and Scootermania by Josh Sims. Interestingly, you can read some of the latter online already.
Having just reviewed the Acid Jazz Hipsters 3 album, I thought this Scootitunes #1 album would be a nice compare and contrast.
