Any old Scooters Flipper ?
He said he has quite a few old bikes and scooters, anything in particular you want me to look out for?

Where is all this lot? Would he mind a visit/
Russ
I can ask him Russ but he is a bit of a recluse and a bit mad if you want my honest opinion, nice guy though, but likes his privacy. He is paranoid that if people find where he keeps his selection they will go and nick all his cars..... even though most of 'em haven't run in a few years... bless him.
I'll ask him tomorrow for you and see what he says.

I'm after an unrestored Vespa SS180 (1960's)
Lambretta's or any 60's Vespas potentially may be of interest

Get photos of the lot - there's a thread to themselves right there!
I'm mildly interested in the Fiat 127 ... and I'm not sure why. And the Spitfire. And the Bedford CF.
Sounds like this guy has spent years doing what most of us would end up doing if we had the money and the space ...
