I remember watching Shriners in the mid sixties to early seventies riding scooters in the local parade when I was a kid. They would do kind of a rolling figure eight along the parade route. I can clearly remember the sound, weeeee as each one twisted the throttle to speed though the center gap, beep beep beep honking their horns then wing ding ding as they slowed to make the corners. I Googled ‘Shriner Scooters’ and found images of some still around with their original Shriner paint jobs, that would be a cool find. 😄
Mine, from Northern Ohio. All the Vigano stuff is clamp-on, but there are 37 additional holes drilled for all the Shriner bells, whistles, and badges. Plus there are signs that an automotive battery was fitted in the left cowl.
Just a few holes in the leg shield...

Yeah I had a Rally 200 that was a former Shriner scoot. The thing only had 300 miles or so on it, but three coats paint, all different colors. I tried to strip it down to the original paint, but it did work. I ended up getting it media blasted and powder coated.
