Riding an Ingo-Bike was a ‘craze’ in America in the thirties …although, having ridden one, I have a feeling the craze might have been more in the minds of the advertisers than Ingo scooterists. It’s a wacky machine that attracts a lot of attention when at a standstill, but you can’t help feeling a bit daft bouncing along the road on a giant scooter. It’s no coincidence that much of the publicity positioned the Ingo at the beach: it’s the sort of thing you might want to try out on holiday. Nevertheless, Curly of the Three Stooges seemed quite at home on his Ingo-Bike: you can see a video of him further down the page…
