    I must find this out.

    In episode #125 of the "Dlck Van Dyke Show" entitled "Br-room Br-room" Rob buys a small motorcycle. In the episode, they referred to it as a "Geronimo", but I am sure that is a made-up name.

    I need to find out what kind of motrcycle that was. It was very small- really pretty neat looking and probably a 2 stroke.

    i will post a pic if I can find one. Thanks for the help.

    Here is a pic of a Zundapp Combinette- don't know the year. I am looking at the tank emblem and shape and the handlebars. What do you think?

    LOL at the censored name in the title. I woundn't be too happy if my name was Dïck and I couldn't type it on this board.

    i dunno...i think the engine was in-frame, not under. the emblem looks similar, but i still dunno...

    i was wrong about the style. i don't think it's a zundapp, either.

    it's called a "geronimo" in the show, yup...here's some caps...

    Based on Augi's pics, I think I found it....problm, it is a thumbnail sized pic and the link behind it is broken. However, get rid of that pillion seat and it is the same thing- pay special attention to the shape of the rear fender and tail light.

    I am closing in....

    I think the "M" may stand for AerMacchi.

    i've been out-overboarded!

    that's it, alright...

    i wonder how h-d felt about the "real" bikers riding bsa's & triumphs, and making fun of the "great little skateboard"...maybe that's why they didn't use the real name. i'll go back thru the video to see if they're credited.

    hey, hough', thanks for the nifty thread :cool:
