Ugly Scoot

Reminds me of a scooter a mate of mine had in the sixties, it was I think either 60 or 98cc and as he was so fond of reminding me a Steyr-Daimler-Puch. We cleared it's seized piston with a lump hammer and a piece of wood. Ran fine afterwards.  I had a 150 Excelsior, so didn't exactly look down my nose at it! Looked a bit like this Rumi but was red and cream.
