The humble scooter is often maligned by motorcyclists but it seems like misplaced ire to me, holiday scootering around tropical islands is one of my favourite vacation pastimes and I see no reason to look down on those who wish to scooter around even when they aren’t on leave.
This scooter is a classic 1957 Zundapp Bella, it’s a 200cc 2-stroke with an electric start and a beautiful fire engine red paint job. The eBay seller says it has a clear Ohio title and has been stored indoors for the past few years, the tan seat is showing some wear but a new one has already been ordered from Germany.
