Post Sale Update: This Skat Kitty sold for $2,900 after 42 bids on eBay.

Sold by Projects Unlimited out of Dayton, Ohio, the Skat Kitty was the first production scooter with a cast aluminum frame and fender assembly. This one stands out as it features the signature of none other than Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.

The Skat Kitty weighed just 65 pounds but it was able to carry 250 pounds. The engine was a 2.5 horsepower side-valve four-stroke Lauson unit which was capable of returning 100 miles per gallon. If you didn’t weigh too much, you could hit 25 miles per hour. Options included a lighting kit, electric horn, and even a sidecar.

This example is claimed to be in impeccable condition as it has never been ridden since it was restored in 1999. It’s been featured on many magazine covers and it looks great. Find this Skat Kitty for sale in Galveston, Texas with bidding up to $2,125
