    As another Monday rolls around, a little bit of the past............well, my past at least........couldn't get enough of these as a kid...........actually, I still can't pass up a ride.....................this one modeled after the Lusse Brothers Sport Skooter, built between 1947 and 1951, after the early Dodgem cars but before the Italians got into it big time....................

    It looks like a personal flying transport from the Jetsons era.

    I see the makings of a "Rat Fink" kind of build here!!!

    Can't you see some freckled faced kid with a ballcap on.......tongue hanging out......eyes bulging........two hands on the wheel with the elbows sticking out about 2 feet on each side.........knees about as high as his chin and sticking out to the side........
