Found a pic of one of my old scoots on facebook ..... when I bought it it had been over painted yellow ..... never seen it as the custom before so it's quite cool ..... I wish I still had that engine ..... Clocked 85 sat bolt upright on a Yankee seat. .... even better the yellow scoot with sidecar behind it was my mate Micks .... asked him to confirm the scoot n he spotted his ..... bloody small world

Vicks was an underground rave culture thing in the 90's, willing to bet the owner was fond of his "disco biscuits" 😂

And I thought branded vehicles were just a marketing and donk thing.

For real? Do you mean actual Vicks or was that slang?

Some people would take the drug Ecstasy, they would then inhale Vick to enhance the rush. So I'm told 😳

Topless in a field, early hours of the morning, warm summer night, banging house music, plenty of water, and Vicks all over your chest. The late '80s seem so long ago!!
