Vintage Skateboards, Scooters, and Go Karts

Vintage scooters are very popular in large cities. They are great for the short commute or the long pleasure ride. They were developed after WWII as a means of transportation more civilized than the motorcycles of the day. Scooters like the Vespa were designed for comfort and ease of operation as well as to give the rider protection from messy motor fluid spatter. Popular throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s the Vespa was available with or without a side passenger car. During the 1960’s British MOD movement, the Lambretta gained popularity because of its sportier, more modern design. Great gas mileage, comfort and ease of operation are what keep these vintage scooters popular today.

Also appearing in the early 1960’s was the skateboard. Then, a long slim wooden board with steel wheels, it was a novelty that most parents could have done without. Soon wheels were changed to rubber, trucks (axles) were improved, and the boards were widened to a generous 9 inches. Popularized by the surfer community in the 1970’s skateboarding became a craze that is now a competitive sport. Much sought after vintage skateboards like Makaha or Hobie are prized by collectors.

Go karts have changed much since they first appeared around 1957. Go Kart first offered their karts as mail order kits. Their rail frame, and motor components made up mostly of lawn mower parts, grew in popularity. Modern go karts are much more advanced but the vintage go karts are still popular with collectors.

I love to collect Vintage Skateboards, Scooters, and Go Karts. I focus on Skateboards but have just started Scooters and Go Karts. Scooters have made a comeback thanks to the Razor Scooter trend but those aren't anything like old vintage scooters.

The way that skateboards have evolved over the years is incredible! Skateboards first started out as something that surfers could do when there were no waves. The first skateboards were built by tearing apart roller skates and affixing them to little planks of wood. Even 2x4s. As a consequence these boards usually had steel wheels and did not move anywhere near a gracefully as our modern boards do.

Soon after, when skateboarding garnered some attention, people started looking into how to improve the skateboard. One of the main problems was that of the wheels. The steel or plastic wheels that were widespread would jolt the rider so much that, when they dismounted to board, they would feel like their feet were vibrating. This Spurned the invention of Urethane wheels which could absorb the impact and run over small pebbles instead of screeching to a halt. This is just part of my passion for Vintage Skateboards, Scooters, and Go Karts.
