Safticycle Scooter - Left Side

This example is currently in a museum setting – based on location I’d guess it’s at Sidecars and More, but no guarantees there. Also not guaranteed is the mechanical condition of this rig, which the seller does not describe in detail. He/she does say that the paint is original and the sale includes some spares and literature.
