I've been lurking here for quite some time, registered a few weeks back and figured I'll have to make that dreaded first post eventually, so why not now?
I'm an ex-mod, american scooterboy (well, maybe not so much a boy at 34, but still...) with a decidedly anarchistic leaning (think Mikail Bakunin, not John Lydon) and have been a fan of the Redskins since I discovered them in the mid-90's (a friend made me a tape of the Live cd).
I'm also 34 and have been a fan of the Redskins since I saw them on The Tube way back in November 1984. I'm also into the Mod scene and have had 6 scooters over the years. 5 of them were Vespas (PX200, 2 PX 125's, V 100 & a Sportique). These days I ride a Bajaj Chetak.

Here's my last Vespa, a 1965 SS180:
These days I ride an ex-race-bike Gilera Runner that's esthetically lacking but is such an improvement over Vespas mechanically that I don't mind the looks. I keep talking about finding a 1976 (the year Franco died) Spanish Servetta Jet 200 Lambretta and do a full bodied muralled custom with Spanish Revolution posters as the theme (CNT/FAI. POUM militia and the International Brigades).
