I guess you have to be of a certain age to really appreciate the design of this new Czechoslovakian retro-electric scooter, but as someone who grew up during the age of tail-fins, I would love to have one of these scooters just to see people's strange looks as I rode past them.  ;D  But since they are handmade to order, it likely is not cheap and I bet the shipping and import duty costs would be expensive, too.  Fun to look at, though:  https://electricmotorcycles.news/ageless-and-iconic-cezeta-type-506/

Are you out of your mind? You can't buy anything on two wheels without ABS, if it came with one wheel but not without ABS!  ;) ;D

OK, I'll bite. I went over my post again and can't find any misspelled word.  I thought that I miss-spelled "Czechoslovakian" so I went back to my dictionary and it seems to be correct.  What was my mistake?   ???  Or should I have referred to this land torpedo as an electric "retro-scooter"?

            It's in the subject line which is the only reason I'd ever mention it.

Cool Scooters!
The Ctechs always had a unique take on style.
It's the right part number so it might fit.
