Near new condition
Totally stock except the momentary switch (which was missing) came from a Hurst Roll Control. This scooter now has ties to Drag Racing. Many thanks to Lawrence Rhodes. This is one of the many scooters he recovered from imminent scrapping and distributed to many appreciative people. Out of 30 scooters, there are now 7 known working scooters which were fixed for little or nothing.
