Little Flirt

When Chris's scooter came back from the painter she sat on the bench twinkling.  Chris was looking at her from every angle, the more he looked the more she twinkled.  I said "Chris she is flirting with you" and so she was named, 'Little Flirt.'

This is Little Flirt launched in August.
She made her maiden voyage to the Isle of Wight with Chris her proud owner. The pink and white GP is Patsy, she is mine and was launched seven years ago. She averages 10,000 miles a year. Both were built here at Scooter Surgery.

Not a Penny Farthing

This little cutie is not a penny farthing, she is quiet a bit         smaller. Built in 1880 she is a Safety bike, so called because she was fitted with brakes and gears.  She is only one of three left in the world and was here at Scooter Surgery in transit to Italy. And what a pleasure it was to be her keeper. Food for the soul of all who saw her.

My new books ends?

These are my new book ends.
Well I would like them to be.
I think though this cylinder and barrel look better
on the 48 where they belong.

Gung Jue

This Lambretta was named by her owner, Mawgan  who lives in Hong Kong 'Gung Jue' which means Princess in Cantonese.  Pretty but high maintenance and demanding of attention.
