A few snaps from wandering around Nagasaki. Scooters are a way of life here and petrol head pursuits are in the mainstream. There're a huge number of customised super scoots running around. The Honda Fusion is a popular platform. Low riding, uv downlights, race cans and pearlescent white paint schemes are all in vogue. The look for many is a brilliant retro vision of the future. These are the machines we would all be riding in 2015 from the vantage point of he seventies. If you haven't encountered Japanese custom scooters before I urge you to go to google images and search 'japanese custom scooters'....
|Custom Honda Fusion ticking many of the boxes.|
|Lightly modded Yamaha Morphous.|
|I honestly don't know what this is. It's probably got a body|
kit on. I would guess Suzuki. Looks great anyhow.
|Another view of the above.|
|Not a custom but a cute scoot not seen in the|
UK. The Yamaha Vox.
|Another one not seen in the UK. The Yamaha cargo scooter,|
the 'Gear 50'.
