I had a Fizzy, pre-disc one, metallic purple with Yamaha racing block stripes.
I had 2 pals with SS50's and agree, they were poo and in flurorescent green the ugliest two-wheeler ever. Even at 16 I would not have been seen dead on one.
On my 17th birthday I picked up a KH250 and was king of the road, what a day that was
I think it took me 4 years to pay off and for most of that time it never ran on all three cyclinders
I have seen Fizzy's go for £4k
I'd like a go on one just for old times sake but good grief I don't bleedin well want one again, what are these buyers thinking of?
My good lady bought me a great book last Xmas, Funky Mopeds!: The 1970s Sports Moped Phenomenon by Richard Skelton, it's a great read for all 40+ year olds. Looking back I was incredibly fortunate to be 16 at that time, happy days, never to be repeated for todays youngsters.
Never been off bikes, right now I have a PX125, VFR750FV and NX650 Dominator
