Yes, we see scooters all over the place these days, but we’re talking about vintage scooters like Vespas, Lambrettas and Piaggios… the type of things you saw the Mods riding around on in the late ’60s.

In celebration of this two-wheeled heritage, San Francisco’s “Black Sheep Scooter Club” is putting together “The San Francisco Classic,” a four day vintage scooter rally all over San Francisco.

Want to catch a glimpse of these vintage scooters rolling all over the city? Here’s the list of rally locations. So put The Who’s Quadrophenia on your HiFi and get ready.
