1950 Scoto Tubauto Scooter-Bike
with 48cc VAP4 Engine
500 x 50A Wheels
EXTREMELY RARE: THE WORLD’S MOST INNOVATIVE POSTWAR SCOOTER-BICYCLE!
(With Moleskin Engine Cover)
This Scoto is a perfect candidate for restoration, as the machine is complete except for a spare wheel. Scoto wheels are unique and therefore not easy to find. The frame is in good condition and solid throughout. The engine turns freely. The clutch (operated by the left handlebar grip) is stuck, but easily freed once the engine is removed for restoration. The other cables move freely. The right handlebar grip has throttle control in one direction and decompressor in the other. The tyres pump up and hold air, but should be replaced before riding it. The moleskin engine cover is in remarkably good condition; the holes in its centre are for the pedal spindle.
