I'm really excited about the Allstate that I found, or I should say.....found me. A really nice gentleman stumbled upon my blog and was looking to sell his wifes old Allstate that him and his wife have been dragging around the country for 26 years or so. He sent me photos and I fell in love with this scoot. I plan on keeping everything original on this bike. I'm going to go pick it up in a few weeks and I'm really looking forward to this project. Anyways, here's the photos. I'll probably start a new blog documenting from the picking up of the bike to the finished restoration which won't entail much. It should only need some new seals, new cables, tank cleaned and coated, carb rebuild, seat re-apholstered, and new tires.
I like lots of stuff but my main interests are vintage scooters and mid-century furniture/design. I spend too much time scouring thrift stores, estate sales, craigslist, local auctions, and ebay just to find hidden treasure that I can drag home.
