    The catalog may be worth more than the scooter...

    Here are some pages from a 1949 Lowther Lightnin' catalog that recently sold on eBay for over $129. I wish the photos were a little larger.

    The Airflo model has a face only a mother could love, but the Playboy looks kind of cool. However, around the same time they were building those models, Lowther was building a scooter for Indian. This was a streamilined model called the Stylemaster. Unfortunately it didn't sell very well either.
