My friends Dad purchased 3 of these scooters new in 66 from a salvage company. They had been submurged during transit on their journey to Canada.
Eaton's our largest dept store at the time sold them under the "ROAD KING" brand.
We cleaned them up, flushed out some of the bits and drove the hell out of them, 2up camping trips, everyday transportation, comuted in the snow, towed a boat and trailer once.
Eventually we stripped the bodywork and tried our luck riding them in the dirt, my first broken collarbone.
They were traded, passed on to newer riders as we moved up, ours were burgandy coloured.
