    I think strictly speaking it's neither: it's a step-through. But if I had to pick one, I'd go with 'bike'.

    Seeing as you can't ride a postie on P's if you did your test on a scooter, I'd say it was a bike.  Once off P's you can ride one though.

    Re: postie bikes

    I noticed that the East side of the Island tends to go with "postie bike", where the west side (including South Australia) tend to use "postie scoot"...

    I tend to use 'motorbike' when refering to my bikes/scooters when the context doesn't involve any scooter details.

    I love telling people that the Postie is the only contemporary motorcycle designed exclusively for Australian conditions. :)

    It's just what I found as I travelled around. Heaps of people came up to ask about the little bike I was travelling on, and in WA, it was 2:1 on their using scooter or bike...

    That "cafe'd' Postie Bike looks effin' sick....love it.

    I'd call 'em bikes if only for foot controls and no floor not to mention the fuelie under the seat........but, as someone said, i wouldn't throw them out of a scooter club.

    Re history, i know that these are based on the Honda Ag ( agricultural) Bike of many years ago....fact.

    This itself was a beefed up version of the Honda Step Thru with lower gears, no plastic leg guard, upswpet exhaust etc.Other parts are interchangeable with Step thru of same size of same period.
