that simple looking spanish Li 150 in black with the numbers 150 on it is just so cool and symbolic of the time when budgets were an aerosol and stickers, we look back at these pics with nostalgia because so much was created with so little. all the more impressive when it was your only transport.great scooters ! hope a lot more people are going to post their first 50 spesh pics up. mine got stolen in Bamford Derbyshire after a mods and rockers dustup in 1983. MRN 793 P.sprayed it fruit salad colours and not heard a whisper of it since.

I'm in the middle of trying to put the charcoal GP back together but have been slowed down by the god awful weather (no garage only a small shed). That GP has been with me more than 21 years now so it's a little tatty, the stoving is flaking and I'm going to get a lot of that powder coated.

I have a load more pics of other scoots I've owned over the years and just spotted myself in the Scootering retrospective bookzine at Girvin in 86...never thought I'd made it into the mag...
