It's a Curse
« on: June 24, 2014, 04:06:34 PM »
My Cursor has arrived from Austria at last.  Is it a Microcar or a moped?

Two seater and left hooker too!

Nice, as to what it is, yes it's a microcar, but it is also a Cabin Moped!

It's just that it is classed as a moped for tax being only 49cc.

 Right off the Cursor Microcar homepage.
And only about 100 miles on the clock!
Austria must be in mourning for your repatriation of its adopted young to its Fatherland.
Funny to see your post on their website from 5 years ago asking for information on Lawil or William, and professing your love for the "scootercar", just prior to my own vanquished shopping list.
Good to see that we are both achieving the schemes of our dreams. :)

Some of the French 50cc cars will have to go but I much prefer this Curser.  It reminds me of Wilks Motorcycles in Shoeburyness selling them when I was about 17 years old.  A safe alternative to an FS1E?  I saw one out on the road with a 16 year old at the wheel and I am not so sure about the 'safe alternative' quote.

I do like the two seat version and thought they had widened the body somehow, but they hadn't, so snug they must be.
I've fitted a 70cc into one of my Cursors, makes it a bit more usable, also retro fitted a reverse mechanism on to it, as they are fairly long cars.
My 2nd Cursor, not sure what to do with that, weather to fit a more modern 125cc engine that has reverse, will see.
I need to stop buying!
