I'm not sure what I like best about the Skippy racer. The name? The steering mechanism? The pin-stripped wheels? The little heel brake? One thing is for certain. The child who rode this scooter must have ruled the neighborhood as far as two wheeled vehicles went (Unless of course a rival rode an Elgin Bluebird bicycle)Though this scooter gains limited functional benefit from the streamline design, it is certainly a handsome aesthetic.
