^^too good looking to be yard art...

Re: Quarantine TV

Not into scooters but I’d love to get a ‘57 Cushman Pacemaker one day. So slick looking. Saw one the other day listed for sale a couple states over. Anyone ever rode one of these?

No its roached and impossible to find parts for. I have a newer honda 80cc scooter that I want to body swap everything onto it. Started a few years ago but it's on the back burner now. I got to strip it down and fit the front. Shouldn't be to hard. Gonna leave it all rusty and ratty.

Re: Quarantine TV

Sonny barger started riding on a cushman, I think a lotta that age crowd did, the pre-moped era's intro bike. Anyway it's made em super popular among the harley crowd. you find dudes cruising high custom high chrome cushmans and selling for several thousand. I do love em but they seem to command a big premium on name alone

Re: Quarantine TV

Mopeds and cushmans were.both popular in the 50's..i started out with a mid 50's allstate moped ,then got a cushman step thru scooter...no age limit ,no license,or insurance required made them popular for kids until they got old enough to drive

Re: Quarantine TV

Super interesting to hear about Barger doing that you’d think it would be a total ‘wimp’ move in that crowd. However, recently due to this thread particularly stoking the fires of my cravings for one of these I began to notice several videos of Harley dudes blasting on these during motorcycle rallies/festivals. Makes sense now
