    1940's scooter restoration

    Step away from the bickering and the trolls for a little while and enjoy some craftsmanship and creativity. His best work yet IMHO. A stunning result, and he takes "I make a new one" to a new level. He also made the anvil he uses from railway track, and the rotary tumbler he uses to clean the wheels.

    Absolutely fantastic - thanks Magirus! Relaxing to watch, too. The handlebar grips!

    Interesting that he didnít add washers anywhere, but they werenít there to begin with I guess. Iíve subscribed.

    Astonishing, I love the fact he makes new nuts and bolts. Any sane person would just but some new ones.

    As for making moulds for tyres and handlebar grips, well thats just insane.

    Love it
    Cheers,

    Similar to the Radio Flyer I had in the early-mid 1950s.

    I watched it last night with a glass of wine - most enjoyable.

    One thing that I noticed; he didn't use washers in places I would have but what the hell.

    We had the Triang Mobo's over here like this in the '60's.

    Same as mine except mine had white wheels.

    I like the wheels on that one!

    These days, 70 years later, I'm lusting after an electric bike like this Zugo:
