Featured Scooter: 1957 Zündapp Bella R201

Approx. 30 yrs ago I traded a huge Hoskie gas tank (pd $275) for a non-running Zundapp Bella. This is the 4th restoration shop it has “visited” and it seems to have found a home in Burlington Vt! Me of all anal people am hard pressed to figure the exact mileage I have transported this […]

Cannonballing With a Neracar

By Bob Addis, 4/16/13 What events or thoughts set off crazy, even seemingly impossible ideas?  More specifically, why would I want to ride a 90 year old motorcycle/motor scooter with a top speed of 35 mph from coast to coast, covering approximately 3500-4,000 miles in September 2014?  I’ll list them!

Fourth Annual A-Town Rumble – July 13, 2013 Albany NY
