I ran out of oil for the weed wacker, so I used some Ipone strawberry scented that I had laying about.

My 14 year old said it was "freaky smelling" when he was doing the lawn and I kept looking around for old Vespas. Kinda of a cool distraction.

sweet Brad! Have you thought about doing a father son restore on a old scoot? The kid and I went to the hobby store today. I found a clearance Thomas the Tank Engine model train set for him for xmass. I am hopeing that it is something we can do together...

Hoby Hub in Little Canada, off of rice street on Minnesota.

Great deals on tomas train sets. These are the electric model train types.

I got this one, for 59.00. a Great deal IMHO for xmass.

Done...
...and it comes with Annie and Clarabell!

O.K. now we are way off scootering topics. I'm done discussing Thomas.

Although some of those other trains can be real pricks.

We spent about 3 1/2 weeks out hiking and camping this year. I'm not encouraging the scoot for him. My wife barely tolerates my riding. His frontal lobe development, like all teenagers, isn't there yet. He needs to learn to fear immanent death first.

haha,
yeah I thought the same thing as my little brother got into scooters, and sure enough, he totaled a perfect condition P2 within a month. Lucky for him he only ended up with a broken thumb.

........and as far as Thomas goes, you can also find him at Choo-Choo Bob's on the corner of Marshall and Cleveland in St. Paul.

Well I was just wondering. It seems like a lot of guys are doing car restores now with their kids. I just thought an old school scoot would be cool. You can drag it out for years to keep your wife happy.

Actually, I got one. The motor's back together now. Also have a line on an old Allstate in a barn in North Dakota (really).

Kids are too busy with their own activities. They like the idea of scoots but haven't shown interest in building one and I don't really want them to ride yet. Right now the only thing they drive with a motor is grampa's golf cart at the farm.
