An Ascot Pictorial...
« on: September 02, 2013, 01:56:56 PM »
Anyone want to post up a pic of their Ascot (Either the FT or the VT version) and tell us about it?

Here is my mostly stock FT500 with its little brother, the Honda MB5. I ride the FT, while my Girlfriend is learning to ride a motorcycle on the MB5. For those of you who are not familiar with what an MB5 is, they are a 50cc, 2-stroke, with a 5 speed manual transmission. They were another bike that was imported into the USA in 1982 and didn't sell well enough to be imported again in '83. A one year wonder. It's a fun little bike to zip around on & will do about 50-55mph with my almost 200lbs aboard. ;D
