Loving the pics of your scooters! So felt inclined to post a couple of pics of me with a my old Z650's in the early 80's. Both are ''Uncle Bunt'' frames, a kind of multi hard tail frame of the era that was easily adapted for any engine etc! Anyway pics....

:oops: :oops: give me a break it was a long time ago!
Image
:oops: :D :D
and here is a pic of me working on my Z1000 trike, I built this from scratch :D
Image
To address the balance here is me dad on his scooter circa 1960
Image
And here is a pic of my bosses scooter that I restored recently [not the mechanics or any thing just the frame and bodywork, i'm a sprayer by trade]
Image
It looks lovely and has two sets of side panels one in white and one in red it was a real pleasure to work on :D

Ive got uncle bunts real name on the tip of my tongue ..but cant remember it .
He changed company names a few times and ended up in the states ...

He built a trike called Too Much which was pretty groundbreaking back then.

John Reed (Read?) was his name ..but it wasnt him who built TooMuch .
He built some pretty amazing all engraved chops back when they were all the rage in the early 80s. (I think ....)

Chris Ireland:D!!! Sure it was him, was he N.C.C. I think, Cant remember doh! How the memory fades! he built real monster trikes !
Qwerty, will look for more pics of me trike but they are all on ordinary/old school photos in a huge cardboard box in the spare room, every time me wife and I sit round the 'box of pics' we go into a weird time warp that land forgot type zone and dont reappear for days on end!
Anyone else love looking at old pics in cardboard boxes!!
