“Please park your mopeds next to the bike rack”
I spied the red scooter as I turned off Glisan into Fred Meyer. This one’s been here before. It’s a new Lambretta. Or if you prefer, “Lambretta.”
It’s the only one I’ve ever seen on the street.
Last time I saw it, I looked at the odometer and saw that it showed over 3,400 miles (and for whatever reason, the 3 was red). So this one gets used.
Yeah, yeah, it’s not a “real” Lambretta, but at the risk of having a fatwa declared on me, I’d suggest Innocenti would be building something quite similar had the company stayed in business. After all, this “Lambretta” has a tubular steel frame, as did the original.
The owner wasn’t around, and I had to get the groceries home so I couldn’t wait to see if he showed up. He passed me as I waited to turn left on 67th.
