    My Dad had a BAJAJ 150 scooter back in the day and i remember the day i rode it for the first time after i got my license and what a thrill it was. Sadly when I upgraded to a motorcycle we had in all 3 two wheelers and Dad didnt ride much then so to save monthly parking charge in our residential Co-op Society my family decided to give up the scooter Total heart break situation it was also because it was in 100% working condition and freshly painted too.

    That's a lovely scooter Lawrence..

    When I was a kid my mom's dad had a Lambretta, I used to admire it so much.. and later on they sold it and bought a Bajaj scooter, by then I had finished my school and my mamaji taught me to ride the scooter.. Scooter is a fun vehicle to ride, given a little more space in our compound my next possession would surely be a white bajaj scooter with no stepney I just love it..

    Loved the background story.


    Like a lot of people who grew up in 70's/80's - Scooters were an integral part of life. Cars were not that mainstream back then and most families relied upon 2 wheelers as their daily mode of transport.

    Life was simple and needs were simpler back then too. My Dad had a Bajaj for many years too (After downgrading from Bullet, Jawa and Yezdi). Another family member had Bajaj Chetak and a Vespa too and also remember a Lambretta.
    Once I have donned my black helmet, I become anonymous. My face ceases to identify me. My black visor shields others from the rigours of my passing glance while shielding me from their attempts to peer into my soul. I am an anonymous rider shrouded in black. I am no longer a specific self. I am a passing Traveller.

    Hi!

    This is my first post here on XBHP. I live in Budapest, Hungary, so not exactly close to India. I registered here because I would like to buy a vintage scooter similar in style to a classic Vespa, and then have it shipped to Europe. I understand that shipping isn't cheap, after which I will have to pay import duties, before having it registered so I can ride it legally... but that doesn't put me off at all.

    The plan is to buy a scooter in one of the large cities where there is also a port, somehow have the scooter taken to the port and then shipped to me.

    I have several questions. I hope you will be able to help me, so here goes.


    1. Which models - particular to India - would you recommend?
      The information I've found online is quite limited - but I see BAJAJ and LML are scooters that fit the bill. I am looking for something 50-150 cc, in the style of a 1960s/1970s Vespa/Lambretta.
    2. Which online-portal would be best for me to try and find a scooter?
    3. As I am, quite literally, thousands of miles away, do any of you know of an "agent" I could hire to pick up the scooter (or scooters - I might get 2) and then take it to the port?


    Many thanks in advance for all your help!
