    Default New Motorcycle

    I guess this could go under garden ornaments as well...
    I'm on a search for pressed steel scooters and it is amazing the things that show up

    Very interesting design, but I can see why they did not stick around..

    Is it unsprung both ends?

    would 10 psi in the tires be too much?

    There may be some limited suspension in the front fork/triple clamp arrangement, and the seat is well sprung...

    They heard that unsprung weight is bad news, but frankly didn't give a damn.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Shapely things though, I can see the appeal.
    You could abandon all attempts at aesthetics and go for a noddy bike.

    It's only a matter of time before a Nimbus Type C - all flat bar and rivets - appears.

    Meanwhile....

    I had one of these a long time ago. Worked pretty well, almost mainstream, despite the stamped steel frame - although as far as I could tell the oil in the shocks was only there to keep them from squeaking.
