We got those over here in the 70's. Pick up a little magazine called MotoChamp. It's sweet. Tons of cool stuff. They make an annual called ScooterChamp as well. But MotoChamp is mostly scooters too but along with those monkey bikes, XR50-100s, NSRs and other small displacement bikes.
Growing up I had the Kawasaki version of that bike. 75ccs. Rode it around in the back yard tho it was completely titled and tagged.
My dad rode it to teach summer school so I wouldn't ride it while there was no adult supervision around. The other teachers likened him to an ape tooling around on a unicycle. Small bike, but super fun.

Hi all, Ya there are tons of scooters around here. Also I have seen many of the larger version looking motorcycles but with 150 cc motors.. Kinda cool. If I have my stella the max speed on the hi-way is 60KMH so I could really keep up and pass people....
I prolly end up getting arrested for speeding...

Had a Rockford Tora Motorcycle in the early 70's. It was mainly used to make trips across the back 40 to round up livestock. Was taller than most others, which was much better than feeling like you were on a little tricycle with the short sized bikes like the kawasakis and others. Hated the knees in the ears short seating on the other makes of the time. Eventually traded it in on a lawnmower, well used and abused by then. Now we use a grounds keeper golf cart to check the back 40 acres, was a trade-in when Barnum & Bailey Circus passed through the twin cities a few years back. Isn't the same, much more comfortable instead with a roof and windshield and no kickstand to sink in the sand when changing gates. The golf cart is kinda like a rickshaw without the rough ride or blue smoke.
