Here’s a nice collection of photos of customized twist-n-gos from Japan on twowheelsblog. Not my thing, at all, but worth a look.
For Ryan: A Yamaha T-Max with a Ducati 749 engine. Goodtimes.
After naysaying rumors of a 210cc upgrade for the Genuine Buddy on ModernBuddy, I found Nitro’s photos of a prototype of the 210cc kit (presumably) taken at Scooterworks, from six months ago. So the rumor is this upgrade will be available soon, I still say it’ll be prohibitively expensive and require upgrades to the frame, […]
Are you dreaming of the day the Gilera Fuoco/Piaggio MP3 500 arrives in the US? Ryan says, “Why wait?”
Artist Nemo Gould’s steampunk-ish Honda-Elite-based “Junk Scooter,” with a body made from an old streetlamp cover and vacuum cleaner parts. Here are some more recent photos. Awesome. (Thanks, Kevan!)
Lowrider scooters are cool and all, but a month after picking up his restored and kitted Vespa Rally 200 from POC Scooters, Kyle Rose would probably have preferred not being smashed between two SUVs. Sorry Kyle. Here’s a video of Phil riding the bike, which would be uproariously funny had Phil and Kyle wanted the […]

Another modern Vespista pitched an assfit about losing the award […]
You’d better listen, or else.

I’ll add my comments in italics where appropriate. -2SB We were so excited to get to the Indianapolis Dealer Expo this year, we were running about 2 hours early. […]
Racecar Bob (aka Letterpress Bob, who printed us some fantastic new business cards that I keep forgetting to post about,) found these photos of a Batik-covered low-rider scooterette. Actually, a Bajaj or LML would look pretty sweet covered in that Indian batik fabric they sell in the back room at Moti Mahal, but covering a […]
Shipwreck = seaside dumpster heaven for residents of Branscombe, England. Intrepid scavengers walked away with nearly 50 BMW motorbikes as well as exhaust pipes, steering wheels and beauty cream.
Also from Ryan: A clip of a presumably home-made scooter with feet instead of wheels. From the look and sound of it, it’s from the Japanese version of Max-X
