Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

This one's reasonably cheap, needs a little bit of tidying.

A couple of barn shop find 50cc bikes - from Italy - I had actually gone to buy a Lambretta Scooter - and spotted these all covered in dust.

Here's another oddball '50cc' . . . Cushman Eagle (I imported this from the States - cost me a fortune )

No dude . . . I believe Cushman made their own engines.

They have a long history - some of the bikes/scooters that were parachuted in to Europe during WW2 to enable American Paratroopers to regroup etc. were Cushmans - also, the story goes that both Innocenti and Piaggio saw American servicemen riding early Cushmans when Italy was taken by the allied forces - and this led directly to 'Lambretta' and 'Vespa'.
