Ok so this is my thinking, I'm 45, I love my scoot and the whole history nostalgia and friendship scoots bring. I go on runs, have had wkends away and have got dirty fixing mine and friends and strangers vintage scoots.
But I fear we are a dying bunch of enthusiasts. I see rev and go scoots all over. The other day my young neighbour who was on a rev and go called by. We chatted, I looked at his Chinese scoot and saw his main engine frame bolt was hanging out by 4 inch.
I saved his life by putting it right. He had no idea at all. (Yeah I exaggerated a bit).
My point being is this. As we all grow older and die, our scoots will lose value as the kids don't want them, and the government's want rid.
We as enthusiasts need to do something to keep it going. You scooter shop people need to lengthen your view on the market. It will go. The mod, 60's 70's 80s fashion is drifting away. What can we do?
. There is nothing wrong with modern rev and goes but our vintage stuff is going to drift away I think.
What do you people think?
