DonGo Bare Bones Scoot

dongo_01I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I’m not really a “modern scooter” person. But, and again, I’ve mentioned this before, there are some exceptions. The most notable is probably the Honda Ruckus, or Zoomer as it is known in he UK. In the same vein, The DonGo is a back to basics, stripped down scoot that is easy to build, customise, maintain and repair.dongo_06 dongo_05 dongo_02 dongo_04 dongo_03 The idea is that you buy it “flat pack” like Ikea furniture, and put it together yourself. You can spec either a petrol or electric engine. At the moment, I it’s just a concept, at prototype stage… in need of investment to turn into a scoot you can actually buy. If I was a “Dragon” I’d be saying “I’m in” to designer Otto Polefko. I’d love to see this on sale.dongo_10 via YankoDesign. More on the Otto’s Behance page, here.

Evolution of a Scooterist Tee…

From childhood to old agePrint

Damn fine tees, if I must say so myself! All profits (about 50p a shirt) go towards keeping the blog going. Or at least keeping my Lammy on the road!

Cushty cutdown

RB260-Cutdown-2-19-7-2014I don’t feature many cutdowns on here… it’s not that I don’t like them… but my personal taste is towards a scooter that messes with the original designers vision as little as possible, or enhances it in subtle ways. But when a cutdown is done properly they can look the business… like this one that’s up for sale on eBay.

The ultimate family Lambretta?

Family TrailerI don’t know much about this amazing contraption… but I’d like to know more! I think I can make out the word “Siambretta” on the trailer, which would make it Argentinian… but I may be mistaken.

If a sidecar doesn’t quite cut the mustard for family transportation, you can get another kid or two in this! I hope the engine is uprated – otherwise journeys would be stylish, but very slow!
