A GTS A Day Helps You Work, Rest And Play
The Racing Sixties 300 is something of a strange beast. It looks great but the lack of accessories gives something of a blank canvas to those who don’t want to go down the ‘factory custom’ route of the Touring or 75th Anniversary models. As it seems

Polo, A Mint Little Lamby
Back in 1986, British scooterists looking to buy a brand new geared scooter were faced with a rather unpleasant choice. This was the beginning of an era marked by corporations shedding their history, rebranding at astronomic cost. Over in Pontedera,
