I was helping a client move some antique furniture into a dark storage shed and got bonked on the head by white handlebars. After my eyes adjusted, I could make out a white and purple scooter. Front and rear brakes, white tires, totally rad scooter fest going on.
We didn't have much time but I was able to make out the head badge: Royce Union.
On our last trip as I was trying to get a closer look, I saw what looked like a black scooter on a shelf.
I always wanted a nice scooter but mine was a piece of junk. Anyone remember what brands were decent? Just looking for advice if client lets me get a closer look.

There were a few good scooters. GT Zoot Scoot was a cool one, Schwinn YO scooters were nice as well as Mongoose.

Way back in the day I had a Mongoose first and then a GT. The GT zoot scoot was tons better in my opinion. Mongoose seemed like more of a novelty item at first. When sales took off, GT actually designed one for riding.

Yeah and the GT's could be bought all decked out with front and rear brakes, pegs and a Gyro!

Scooter Don always rode a Yo!...

Personally I loved the Zoot Scoot, and could hang five forever on mine, even did hang nothings on it. I broke it though, but would enjoy another.

My sister got one at a yard sale for $5. and gave it to my brother who never used it. I told them I wanted it when they were done with it...

Last time I was home it was gone, sold at a yard sale for $5.

DOH!@!
