1961 and 1963 Ducati Brio 100's

Yes, Ducati made Scooters! A uber-rare high end model in the 1950's and then cheaper 50cc/100cc models (sharing an engine with their new entry-level motorcycles) in the early 60's. Still a very rare Italian piece.



Tilting Scooters

  • 197x BSA Ariel 3
  • The original version of the tilting trike
  • 49cc; automatic clutch, pedal start, compression release
  • Sold horribly; this one was won as part of a contest in Canada
  • BSA sold the rights to Honda





  • 1984 Honda Gyro
  • First Honda version
  • 49cc, 2 sp automatic
  • Sold horribly in the US; still in production in Japan (including an enclosed "Canopy" version)






  • 1986 Honda Gyro S
  • Sexy "chopper" version for the US
  • Still 49cc, 2 sp automatic
  • Still sold horribly in the US; killed after only being made '85/'86






Ice Racing

  • So what do you do in Wisconsin in the winter? Autocross on frozen lakes!
  • Though "studded" classes are available (not the normal studs, but 1" long spikes) the "rubber" classes were always more fun.
  • Through several years of racing I trophied in a borrowed Toyota, in my Corvair, and Ford Fiesta (really dominated with the Fiesta) but never in my quattro (which I never really learned to drive effectively...)
  • Ran the Allante once, but left early when the "unlucky VW" went through the ice...first such incident in a couple of decades.


Moving (2003)

  • So how do you move a dozen cars from Chicago to DC? You rent a truck...
