Well, there goes the trailer park...

The "scooter trash" are rolling in...
Seriously though, these are freakin' schweet!
The one pictured above seems to be the standard model, but I couldn't find weight specs on it. The price is in the range of 2,500 pounds to 4,700 pounds depending on options (some of these come finished with real wood veneers and KITCHENS!)
There is also a model called the Sleeper, that is smaller and more basic (though oak lining is standard) that is only 950 pounds sterling, and weighs in at a svelte 100 Kgs (about 220 lbs to us yanks.) The standard Vespa/Stella sidecar weighs 200 lbs, so the Sleeper should be no problem for a well tuned 150cc scoot.

So I guess this is your chance to beat the inflated housing market, and high gas prices at the same time!

But really, this could be a lot of fun for a cross-country scooter trip.
