Salsbury scooters were among the first American motorized two-wheelers and remain relatively rare. In addition to producing the first automatic scooter with a Continuously Variable Transmission, Salsbury developed attractive designs with aerodynamic nosecones, all assembled by the Northrop Aircraft company.

The Salsbury offered here has been nicely restored and is finished in a striking orange color, the condition of which is nearly as new. Chrome work is limited to the front and rear bumper and headlight frame, all of which have been nicely restored and polished. The seat is upholstered in white vinyl with red piping and, despite a small tear, is quite respectable as well. The engine compartment is perhaps the least attentively restored part of the scooter, although it does not suffer from extensive dirt or grime. All in all, this remains a very well restored and properly maintained scooter that, in its time, stood at the forefront of a small, niche market.
