Mark's scooters

No longer riding:-
Mark took a break from riding and from 1st July 2009 he drove a Fiat Punto 1,200 cc which was to see him through his days at university and into his first employment. It was basic, but sorted and was to prove reliable cheap transport which was what he needed at the time. He also used it as a sanctuary between lectures on days when the weather was inclement and he needed quiet study time away from his university friends.

Before the Fiat Punto Mark rode...
This rather nice and clean 1999 Suzuki Burgman AN400X (the first 2 photographs were taken by the vendor and posted on eBay). It didn't sell on eBay so we went along and made him an offer. John had owned it from new, sold it once then bought it back again 3 weeks later. I rode it home because Mark had failed his bike test 2 week earlier, but he passed the test 2 weeks later. Eventually he sold it to another Mark (from Swadlincote) so it's still a local bike. I had the delightful task of riding it over to it's new home being the only person insured to ride it as Mark had cancelled his policy.

The marks on the side are shadows, in pristine condition when bought. Givi screen fitted is excellent.

All the accessories were fitted when bought but the heated grips didn't work and were removed.

Previously owned:-
Mark's first scooter - bought off his older brother Andy. It's a Peugeot SpeedFighter2 50cc scooter - Prost limited Edition (last of the air cooled models). Originally bought from a local dealer it had been partially de-restricted and was good for an illegal 45mph (50mph with a tail wind). When we advertised it on eBay it was snapped up by a family from Bradford because it was the exact model, colour and spec that their son wanted - not a bad 16th birthday present, that and his CBT.

One of the last of the air-cooled Speedfighter II.

A tribute to both boys and the care they put into it.
