Trying to find out if I'm the Official Old Guy here, or not.
Fixed that for you.OK, let's not tell them...
GET OFF MY LAWN !!!!!!
Guess you're it, so far.
My first ride may have been in the last couple months of 1963, not sure so I'm only claiming 1964. Honda 50 Cub ( They STILL make them!!!! ). Not mine, but got to ride most of the Hondas sold then, brand new, up to the brand new Super Hawk 305cc. Scary fast to this kid with no helmet or riding gear!
I'm thinking of starting a thread of all the stupid things I did.
Yep, that's how my Vespa works, except it has 4 gears.That was NOT COOL where I was.
I rode a buddy's Vespa in 1963. All I remember is it was blue & had a 3-speed shifted by twisting the left handgrip. The clutch lever was also on the left, and went up & down as you twisted the handgrip to shift. And the suspension was shot.
Sounds good to me.OK, let's not tell them.......
