‘SO MANY COME OVER THINK­ING IT’S A FIZZIE!’

Classic Bike (UK) - - YOUR CLASSICS -

I had a Suzuki AP50 when I was 16 – it was faster than Yamaha’s FS-1E. We all had mopeds like this. About eight years ago, I bought this 1977 model. It was in pretty much the con­di­tion it is now, but was red. I had a blue one as a teenager, and this one was still regis­tered as blue on the log­book, so when the fuel tank got chipped I had it re­sprayed. Fizzies have lev­elled in value, but AP50S are get­ting ridicu­lous. I paid £2500 for this; now they’re over £5000, and still climb­ing. So many peo­ple come over and say they also had one when they were young – but that’s be­cause they think it’s a Fizzie! IAN WILLIAMSON
