1957 Mercury Dophin Scooter

1957 Mercury Dophin Scooter


I sold my red 1958 Dolphin scooter a few years ago to the notorious Artura, a German dealer who’s always prowling around Beaulieu Autojumble and ebay offering ridiculously low prices for scooters and three wheelers. So I was delighted to be offered this Dolphin needing total restoration.

Here’s ‘SAA 15’ in 1956…

I’m not sure what I’ll do with it. I have a lot of machines requiring restoration, and I quite like unrestored examples. They’re a sobering reminder of the temporary nature of life.

I collected the Dolphin on my way to kempton Park Autojumble …where I discovered an equally rare and unrestored Mercury machine, this Mercury Ladies Cyclemaster.
