    Fabricator in San Francisco

    Going down some rabbit holes, I found this forum

    In the past I was a licensed motorcycle manufacturer producing about 150 motorcycles a year along with a few hundred frames. Nowadays Ive simplified my life(no employees) and I just build frames. Ive been riding an Alta a little bit and I've started to build an electric scooter. These are some of projects, a street drag bike with a Panhead and a Lambretta with a Yamaha RZ 350 engine that I built 28 years ago...

    So now to get some progress on the electric scooter.

    It is nice to hear about Lambretta scooters again. My second vehicle was a 1963 Lambretta 150Li that I bought new from Al Fergoda on Market Street for $335. I loved the looks, but the engine didn't like to go faster than 45 mph for more than a few minutes before it would start to freeze up. However, it certainly handled better than the 1962 Vespa 125 that preceded it.

    Thats so cool!!! I still see Al Fergoda stickers on bikes.....Vespa still dont handle

    They are super reliable now with electronic ignitions and aluminum barrels. Electric should be a total blast!!!
