Silver Pigeon is a Japanese scooter. They are kind of rare although they show up at Portland once in a while. Google Silver Pigeon scooter. They are a very comfortable ride and stylish too, while being smooth and dependable like all Japanese stuff. The problem with them is they are very, very heavy with a low top end at 35 – 40 mph tops. The motor works very hard to get up to a top speed with a variable clutch system much like a snowmobile. I don’t dislike them, but I would rather spend time restoring something with more riding ability. Cushmans are slow enough at 50 – 55 mph. I find my 53 Eagle fun and comfortable at 40 – 45mph but it’s not whining and spilling its guts.
