Cezeta 502

Oh boy, got a new scooter. Well not new, but new to me. It's a 1962 Cezeta 502. Made by CZ in Czechoslovakia. It's a 175cc with electric start. Pretty luxurious for a 60's eastern Europe scooter. It's quite a tank of a scooter, almost like a two wheel microcar. My wife's first comment upon seeing it was "wow it's big".  It definitely weighs more than any of my other motorcycles. New parts are readily available and fairly reasonable so this should be a fun restoration.

Blog Watch - Isetta Bubble Window Blog

There's a new Isetta Bubble Window Restoration Blog that has recently been started. Definitely worth checking out if you're an Isetta enthusiast. The author of the blog also restores scooters and has a nice website and flickr page with lots of photos of his beautiful scooter restorations. I look forward to following this blog!
