Join The Regulars!  
  "The Regulars" is a club for vintage motorscooterists in the Twin Cities area.

Membership is currently free, but our one and only requirement is a love for vintage scooters. Our goal is to gather often, enjoy good health and ride in mass as the gods intended.

We meet at Pizza Luce in Uptown Minneapolis on the first and third Sunday of each month at 2:00pm (weather permitting, of course).

Sometimes we arrange other gatherings and announce them via email or the discussion board, so make sure you get hooked up with us.

Guess The Scoot

Take a close look at the following image and test your scooter knowledge!

There should be enough clues provided in the picture for you scooter-heads to deduce the year and model of the featured scooter. Post your guesses in the comments!

Just to give you more hints:
examine the shadow, the curve of the back end, the horn area and the seat.

OK, everyone knows its a "handle bar" model from the fifties. Most likly not a fender light. (head light on the handle-bars) But it would be impossible to know the year based on that picture! We need to see the cowls, front fork, and possibly the ID badge. Of couse I saw all of those things but that would be cheating.

There is a good clue in the seat -- look very closely. It will get you in the ballpark (I think).

For the record: You are way off on your guess about the paypal part. It took exactly zero and it was a very excellent deal! You are accurate about the Allstate part, though. Any guess on the year? (psst - there is no such thing as an anonymous post on any website).

John is getting very warm (move away from the space heater, John!)... Anybody else?

http:///vespa/55allstate.html has a good example of a 55 with those two fat springs on the rear of the seat.

Ok, before it falls off the Regulars front page, the scooter is a 1952 Vespa Allstate. The clues were (hopefully): the handlebar, the headlight, the slope of the back end, the open-front seat. John got the closest! Good guessing!
