Hello, Larry!
Great pair of vehicles!

When I was young, during the late sixties, early seventies - buggies on VW-beetle base became popular, but mostly stayed a dream for most of us.
VW-beetle autos were still used as good family cars and they were not cheap, even quite old. Here-and-there were some professionally built, but most of them were built in back-yard workshops, on a modest base.
(standard chassis, engine 1200-1300 cc and 34 HP, one-off body)

Yours is wonderful and very interesting in nude-look, without a body!

Beside TOMOS mopeds (PUCH origins) and its clones, there were used anything on two wheels that resembled a scooter or moped.

My brother had cute micro-scooter Benelli (so-called parachutist type) and gave me, already having a pair of motorcycles for him and his wife...
So, I enjoy it driving across and around Belgrade a lot, during two seasons.
I never left it at street (my first moped VeloSolex was stolen during a night, parked at street) - but used to bring it home and kept it at a balcony.
It had some 40 kg, but I was young, so the 5th floor wasn't a problem...
It was quite fast, probably around 45 km/hour, maybe too fast for its construction; brakes pathetic, front suspension blocked, rear suspension absent totally and very short wheelbase...
I must return it to him when he moved to a new flat with his family and need money for furniture...

Now, in my 69th, some buggy should be more for me than such micro-scooter?

Many happiness in 2019, with joy in riding your toys and maybe to build a Cyclekart!

Ciao,
Zoran
