Get the to a Nunnery, blasphemer. That's exactly why it's so cool.

Still cool but I never like that snoot look of the front fender on the Lamy. But this picture shows exactly why I chose the Fly over the LX. Do you see the rust speck on the left side of the blue one? That would drive me nuts. At least on my Fly it can rust out from under me without me seeing it.

I think they are real, aren't they?

I like GP's but the Specials are nicer.

Original vintage scooters have character. Dents, scratches small patches of rust. Thats what makes them real and appealing to me. Some people understand, some people don't.

What will a Piaggio Fly look like in 30 years?

Well, I'm guessing. They look like original Innocenti colors, except the blue and white one. They have the correct badging and I'm assuming from the castle in the back ground that they are from a European Lambretta club ride.

I think I remember that picture from a German vintage Lambretta rally. Those guys are hard core original Innocenti.

Plus, it looks like they rode them there. SIL's wouldn't have made it on their own wheels!

The question is what wil I look like in 30 years. Let's see 51 + 30 -> Maybe like that guy on the six flags commercial (I hope)

The statistical odds are that you will live that long, assuming you're a white male and that the world doesn't end before then. Good luck.

Yer mom's a smart woman. You, on the other hand, may end up on the SF Midway as Sammy the skinless boy.

With blue hair, no less. Please, for the love of God, wear your helmet, Sammy!
