A site about restoring an old Lombard Industries Centaur folding motor scooter to pristine condition.
Although I have never actually seen one before, I have been looking for a Lombard Industries Centaur folding motor scooter for about ten years. Designed for use by private pilots and boaters, this neat little unit will run 35mph using a Clinton engine, and folds up to a large suitcase-sized package that weighs about 50 lbs. This particular scooter was in a friend's garage - he had bought it from another TRAACA club member, but decided he didn't want to mess with it.Lombard Industries Centaur folding motor scooter (Thanks, John K.!)
