Default Am I mad

I used to own a puch scooter when I was 16 it was the first bike I had on the road I was given it by the owner of a bike shop I used to work at he had to buy it as part of a deal to get a Suzuki x7 any way I have only ever seen 1 which I had but I have found 1 on eBay by chance and it's only 20 mile from me shall I buy it I just can't make my mind up.
the eBay number is 250947535750
I used to love rideing it but have I got a case of Rose coloured glasses or am I just mad I don't like scoots as a rule and would never buy a vespa or a lambreta.the puch is just so odd

Can you afford it? Have you got space for it?

If the answer is 'yes' to both questions, why not?

Don't buy it..

My first bike was a 98cc Francis Barnett..I rode it until it blew up..

It's not really the bike you remember but that first thrill of mastering powered speed, like the first time you balanced on two wheels..Keep the memories don't spoil them or belittle that first thrill.

John.

John it was not the first bike I rode as I had lots of field bikes from Honda camino with no Tyres to rd250 with crosser Tyres on.I have had bikes since I was about 7 year old
Not shure what it was why it's stuck in my mind or coz I was legal .
Just very confuzzeld
