The California Scooter Company has revived the old Mustang motorcycles, a pretty popular little scooter from the 1950s. The new versions looks very similar to the old originals and with the customer’s choice of either a 125cc 150cc or 250cc engine, you get a perfectly capable little motorcycle you can have a lot of fun with without a huge investment.
The basic models look pretty neat to begin with, but as you might expect, they offer lots of accessories, not quite as many as Harley, but if you really want to dress things up you have a lot of choices.
These scooters are not rockets, they’re not track weapons, they’re not cross country touring machines, they’re just a fun little scooter. Want to ride two up? Easy, get a second one. Really. These are a basic, inexpensive motorcycle for recreational riding.
Who’s the target market? Anyone could be, but I have a hunch it’s likely to be men of a certain age who just want something for a short scoot down to the coffee shop to see their buddies or a fun ride around town. No major work required, easy maintenance, what’s not to like?
Prices start around $4000, but I imagine those accessories could add up quickly if you’re not careful.
Thanks for the tip, Roy.
