1958 mercury hermes scooterette
a very rare scooter in original unrestored condition. in 1956, when the hermes was launched, times were changing fast and new-fangled things called 'mo-peds' had just arrived; old-fashioned cyclemotors and autocycles were no longer wanted. youngsters now rode scooters, went off on jaunts with them, joined clubs, had camping holidays, on the ferry to france. even moped manufacturers had to start making them look a bit more like scooters - hence the 'scooterette' design of this one.
