So you need my "scooter" story....hmmm...
My first motorized two-wheeler was a Honda Camino 50 cc (shame
on me, wished it was a Vespa).
I bought this when I reached the age of 16 years (I'm
Actually just because my two older nephews also had one.
The oldest at one point got himself a Vespa PK 50 S. It looked
strange, non sportive and a bit "girlie" to me at the first time.
After he let me drive it for a couple of times I was sold! So I
decided to search one. My first Vespa was a white PK 50 S. This one I
sold later to my brother who repainted it and eventually got him a
black PX 200.

there are only two categories scooters : The "Vespa's" and the "other

to buy another make.
Now I needed another one and found a PK 50 XL in very bad shape (dented
and badly rusted)
and decided to make a "cut down".
I painted it Ferrari yellow and added a lot of Ferrari stickers I
bought in Italy during a visit at Maserati- and Ferrari factory &
I tuned the engine and put a Leo Vinci exhaust on it.
At this moment I'm very ashamed to have ever done that but I was young
at that time.........(very bad excuse). Here are some pictures.
