I’ll hold my hands up, I’m not any kind of expert on scooter racing, past or present. But there are some names that you can’t help recognising if you’ve got even a passing interest. One of those is Doug Miller of East London Racing. And one of his cutdowns is for sale on eBay.
It’s one of those items that probably looks like either a horde of treasure or (if you’re not in the know) a pile of junk. I’d love to see sympathetically restored – a ‘conserved restoration’ retaining the charm and patina of the years, rather than a shiny new rebuild.
If that’s a project you feel you would love to take on, here’s the eBay link.
