Honda SS50


Steve Allison's Blog has a post, complete with picture, of a Suzuki moped, the type he had in the 1970s. That got me all dewey eyed and nostalgic for that great summer of 1976, the heatwave. I'd done my 'o'-levels and spent the summer posing around, trying to impress the girls, on my red Honda SS50, just like the one on the left.

Ah yes, but how successful was it as a pulling device?

Hi Greg, I bet you felt sorry for the poor suckers on Yamaha FS1E's, known to one and all as Fizzies! I definitely thought of them as second class citizens. Now the Suzuki AP50 that definitely was a babe magnet! Well in my dreams anyway!
