Some low life scum has stolen Chuck’s famous Series 2 TV175 off his driveway between 6pm last night and 1pm today!  The registration number is 402 TPE.

I cannot tell you how devastated Chuck is as we all are. He has had this scooter from new and we all know it very well. The scooter was chained up and under cover.

This may not be a coincidence but according to Chuck, a bloke knocked on his door yesterday afternoon at 5pm enquiring if Chuck wanted to sell his scooter. Chuck told him it was not for sale and they chatted for 5-10 mins. He said he came from the Peterborough area but we cannot tell if this is true or not. I am not saying that this guy stole it but it would be good to find him so he can be eliminated from the police enquiry.

It has been reported to the police as stolen and they are coming round to see Chuck at 7pm tonight to interview and take a statement.

IF THERE IS ANYONE WHO DOES NOT DESERVE THIS, CHUCK IS THAT MAN.
THIS SCOOTER MUST BE FOUND AND WE ARE APPEALING TO THE WHOLE SCOOTERING COMMUNITY TO FIND THIS SCOOTER AND RETURN IT TO ITS MOST DESERVING OWNER.

Please share this message to all so we can make the scooter too hot to handle and find the low life scum. If you have any information leading to the culprit or its location, please let us or Chuck know directly so we can pass the details onto the Police.

Swinging Yamahas.

Yamaha mopeds, scooterettes and small motorcycles of the 1960s – a more innocent time maybe, before ‘swinging’ meant what it does today. Mind you, the Yamaha swingers look happy enough!
