This VICTA RABBIT Scooter Has Only Recently Been Found, After Spending 55 Years Forgotten In A Locked Up Garage.
It Was Left With the Key In The Ignition, The Battery Removed To Be Recharged. The Battery Was Never Put Back And Ridden Again.
These Bikes Were From Tokyo, Japan And Were in Production Two Years Before The Vespa Scooter Was Released, The Brand Later Became Subaru.
I'm Estimating That The Bike Is From 1962/63 And It Still Displays It's Original Warrant And Rego Dated 4th April 1966.
Rego is no longer registered and no paperwork available.
All Body Work Is Great No Cracks, Splits Or Breaks, The Windscreen Is Still Clear, And Has Not Discoloured.
Tyres Are Fantastic (No Cracks Or Signs Of Rotting) Due To Lack Of Use.
The Luggage Rack, Head Light Surround, Rego Holder And Chrome Rings On Body Have Flacked And Have Surface Rust, But Could Easily Be Re-Dipped.
The Brake Light Has Damage To It's Cover, thank heavens for 3D printers!
The Seat Had Lost Most Of It's Padding, But This Has Been Temporarily Fixed.
Nothing Seems To Have Perished, Cables Seem All Good Etc.
However, The Kick Start Has Locked. But, It Was Moving Freely When Originally Cleaning The Scooter Up.
Have Never Attempted To Start It, Due To The Kick Start Being Locked & The Battery Need Replacing.
Has A Selection Of Keys With It, Including The Ignition Key (Being In The Ignition When Found).
Even Has Two NZ Penny Coins In The Original Tool Bag.
I'm Only Selling This Bike Because It's Such A Beautiful Thing, That I Want It To Go To Someone Who's Really Going To Appreciate It. Great Farther's Day Gift (Nudge, Nudge, Wink, Wink)
I've Cleaned The Bike So It Can Be Well Presented In Our Shop, But Still Needs To Be Fully Restored Cosmetically and Mechanically To Get It Going.
If, For Some Reason, It Doesn't Sell, I’ll Be So Happy To Continue To Display It In Our Clothing Store 'To Be Continued...' Preloved Clothing, 300 Cashel Street, Christchurch.
But, I Will Be Sad To Let It Go... And Before You Ask...... I Already Have A Much Loved Scooter!
