Looks like a bitza scoot. But I was not picking up the bodgery here, but the description spelled it out.

I want that flame job. Really, I do. Black cowls though. Or more flames on the cowls, I'm down for that.

Definitely a metal floor though... those rubber ones are spongy.

I want this flame job I saw at ROM this year. Less bodywork crunchiness, though.

Do us all a favor and don't change anything. You're an elitist in the scooter world. What's a little explosion and or fire here and there?

As far as flame paint jobs, not for me and I turn them down. You CM would be my only exception and I would gladly do one for you! I don't see the point in having flames on the mudguard unless that's actually happened to you but definitely on the cowls!!

chandlerman- I remember the flame scoot from Mile high mayhem 1 in Denver, must have been '98? It was a fresh paint job then. Nice looking scooter back in the day!

I love when people recognize a scooter from way back in history like this!

One of the great things about my Lammy is that every person in the LCUSA world knows the scoot. Stan, who rode with us on Saturday for National Lambretta Day, had even replaced the clutch in it once upon a time.

I've been crap for attending rallies, but I did see it at High Rollers in 2012. Still looked pretty sharp then!

I predict Chandlerman will want a flame job with actual flames and Charlieman will figure out a way to make it happen.

These have been for sale for ever...obviously. I spoke with this guy last year because he is fairly local, and was told that I didn't know how rare and valuable these were.

Yeah, I kinda got the same response. However to truly embarrassed myself to the crowd here, I did not read the add right - I thought he wanted $4250 for all three (he had four at one time). I mentioned that and he about ripped my head off with his reply. I apologized, but he told me he was blocking me for being so ignorant. And now, well over a year later, they are still sitting and rusting away....

I kind've like it. Goes well with the Bajaj blue. You'd want it with a yellow lens to be street legal in the US, though.

I like it too. I had this idea of fabbing some of my own trim and accessories for my Stella, but still too busy trying to make it go down the road.
