Cheeky! True though, Schmitt ownership messed with my grey cells, I bought an Isetta!

I like the fly screens. Something I considered on my own project.

If a Scootacar is a crash helmet on wheels, is an Isetta a bobble hat.

Yes! My new email address:  robdobie51@gmail.com.

Thanks Rob. Will send you a few pics of finished Bobette as you are one of the few having dealings with the originals. The rest will have to wait for its first showing.

Received the pics. What a fantastic machine, A modern twist on the 1950s froggy microcar. I love it. I want one. Well done Bob.

Barry, you are a wag! I was just saying to Rob, I will never do another one, once was quite enough thank you!  Although at the moment I could really do with £65 10 shillings! ;D
