Cycles & Scooters Part 2
Presenting just a few of the many bikes from my visit to the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
If you are in the Hershey area, the museum is well worth a visit! I’ll be posting them in groups – to see more, just click the AACA tag at the end of this post
1971 Penton Six-Days
1965 Ducati Desmo 250
1966 Lambretta LI125
a portion of the placard:
Like many 60s-era scooters, this Lambretta sat unused for many years before an organization called the Eastern Scooter Racing Association formed in 2002 with the intent of turning fun, carefree little machines into serious racers.
As in all racing, there are classes designed to even out the level of competition, and after extensive modification by mechanic Stuart Werner to bring it up to track standards, this Lambretta competed.
In 2005, 39 years after the machine was built, Roland Henry rode this Lambretta to an ESRA class championship.
