  • Vintage Scooter Collection On Sale

    After 20 years of building up a collection of scooters from all parts of the world, Brisbane's Joe Dercole puts it all up for sale.

    Joe Dercole has been collecting scooters for the past 20 years. And in this time he has certainly collected some rare examples.

    This has to be one of the first major collections of vintage scooters to go on sale in Australia with the age of the 18 scooters combined totaling an amazing 884 years old.

    With the need to create a whole heap of new room Joe has made the painful decision to part with his collection.

    Below you will find the details of each individual scooter for sale and even a video compilation where you can see most of the scooters for sale from different angles.

    If your interested in a certain scooter why not make an offer via email and thus start correspondence between buyer and the seller.

    All email offers will be considered and the highest offers in the end will be sold the scooter. Selling prices will be posted on each individual model.

  • Scorching pace set for 2009 Le Minz 24 Hour Scooterthon

    The fifth Le Minz 24 Hour Scooterthon is shaping up to be the biggest yet, and with organisers confirming a switch from September to February, the pace is set to glow red-hot around the clock on the Gold Coast.
     
    The Parklands precinct will again host the event, which will be fought out over 24 hours – midday on Saturday February 14 to midday on Sunday February 15.
     
    Hailed as the world’s longest and most gruelling scooter reliability test, a full field of riders will grid up to determine which manufacturer and 50cc model has the reliability and fuel efficiency to go the distance.
     
    In 2007, 18-year-old Jake Dolan eclipsed the existing Guinness World Record by covering 1178.76km in 24 hours on a TGB 101S.
     
    When the event returns, both individuals and teams of up to three riders will attack the existing benchmark, vying to write themselves into the record book.
     
    To do so they will need to turn over 1500 laps of the 660m track on showroom-spec scooters.
     
    Mark Petersen of Exhibitions and Trade Fairs said the organising team had been inundated with enquiries about the return of the popular event.
     
    “Over the years Le Minz has generated a strong following from within the industry and receives plenty of mainstream exposure as well – it’s a unique concept and one of the most demanding events of its kind in the world,” said Petersen.
     
    “Scooter reliability is becoming more and more relevant as it is becoming a popular method of transport for those wishing to beat the rising costs at the petrol bowser – the average 50cc model uses just 2-4 litres per 100km.”
     
    “We’re pleased to be returning to the Gold Coast Parklands in 2009 and the event will kick off all the excitement of the Australian Motorcycle Expo and Australian Scooter Festival to be held a week later at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre from February 20-22.”
     
    “We’re moving from September to February, so the hotter temperatures will make the going tough for riders, and make scooter reliability even more important.”
     
    “Each previous Le Minz has seen the Guinness World Record fall – it remains to be seen if anyone can top the time set by Jake Dolan in September last year.”
     
    “We’re expecting another huge line-up of popular identities and are hoping to get a number of local personalities on board as well.”
     
    The Le Minz 24 Hour Scooterthon is open to any manufacturer exhibiting at the Australian Motorcycle Expo Melbourne or Gold Coast (also incorporating the Australian Scooter Festival).
     
    The field will be separated into 3 classes –  A Class (LA Moped) , B Class and C Class.
     
    The LA Moped class includes scooters that do not exceed 50km/h and is open to both teams of up to three riders or individuals on two or four-stroke models. B and C class allow the entry of scooters that travel faster than 50km/h.

    For more details on entering the Le Minz 24 Hour Scooterthon, please contact Mark Petersen at Exhibitions and Trade Fairs on (07) 5535 5266.

     

     

  • Honda's DN01 - The Real Easy Rider


    22 August 2008 - There are always those few discerning motorcyclists who want to stand out from the ever expanding two-wheeled crowd, so the arrival of Honda's all-new, luxurious automatic cruiser, the DN-01, will no doubt be big news for those after a unique urban design unparalleled in the current market.

    The very latest Honda technology has been integrated into astounding concept bike looks and relaxed custom riding, along with a powerful 680cc V-twin engine and highly-styled 17" wheels.

    There is one major difference from most bikes of its size, however, in that the DN-01 has no clutch. Instead, Honda's low, long cruiser introduces the most advanced fully automatic transmission ever developed for any two wheeled vehicle.

    Strong performance is delivered through an 'infinitely variable HFT transmission' that features Drive, Sport and 6-speed Manual modes for wide-ranging performance potential. Its switch-selectable mechanical Neutral also makes for easier control when at stop.

    The bike's dynamic front cowl design with dual projector headlights, wide LCD instrument panel, integrated LED taillight assembly and smoothly responsive Combined-Antilock Brake System also help to make for an appealing package across the board.

    The DN-01 is one of Honda's most innovative R&D projects come to life, and has been built to appeal to a broad spectrum of the market. With its low seat height and technologically advanced automatic transmission, it is an ideal option for those who want an easy ride, coupled with the handling and power of a larger road bike.

    The DN-01 is available now until 31 October 2008 at a special introductory price of only $16990 plus on road costs. For specifications, please visit: www.hondamotorcycles.com.au

  • Benelli Pepe 50

    Scootersales.com.au gets up close and personal with the scooter range that gets back to basics with a heap of classic style.

    Scootersales.com.au

     

    Benelli have returned to the Australian market with two scooters the Benelli Pepe 50 and the Benelli Velvet 125.

    More to come on the Velvet but for now lets take a look at the Pepe.

    Available in 2 styles the "Old Style" and the more contemporary LX the Pepe offers an excellent ride quality from its 16 inch wheels and zippy performance from its 2 stroke 50 cc motor.

    Initial ride impressions have been very favorable with the scooter really getting back to basics. Large wheels means a scooter with a little more prowess on the road and the Pepe has that in spades.

    Being 2 stroke the Pepe performs well off the line with plenty of Zip and stops just as quick by using the power mostly generated by its front disc brake.

    In the looks department it's a real winner with a retro style that is cheeky and retro all wrapped up into one. My favorite is for sure the "Old Style" with its splashings of chrome but you also cant go past the simple practicality that is the LX. The LX comes with a top box as standard.

    Couple this with a flat floor and you have a real short distance commuter that will do most things extremely well.

    Take a look at the following video for your introduction to the new Benelli Pepe range.

    Benelli Pepe 50 LX - $2390 + ORC

    Benelli Pepe "OLD STYLE" - $2190 + ORC
