Wow! Just did a google search. Certainly a nice little piece of history you will have (or will have) kiwi subbie! And something completely different to the usual Vespa. I wonder if it is true that that the wheels used on the scooter were left overs from the Nakajima aircraft?

"Victa"? Interesting name for a machine manufactured by a company supporting a country that most resounding lost a war they started, and fought (in the air) primarily with their aircraft..

There WAS a great BBS at fujirabbit.com, but the owner lost interest. I recently started a new BBS at www.runboard.com/bfujirabbit, but traffic is still slow.

I know more than a dozen Rabbit owners, but I don't think I know anyone with a 102. There is a guy in Australia named Tim Elsom who's knowledgeable and nice, but I don't know if he has any experience with the 102 or not. Send me a PM with your email and I'll forward it to him, or else just go to that BBS...

Some parts are available from Kouji Yamada, who runs a parts shop called "Rabbit House" in Japan.

Yay found my old Thread on this. tryed serching for it ages ago.

I havnt done any more to it since I got it. I Re Registed it. I took some off the body shell. .
I still yet to start it. The kick start is broken and I do not have an motor bike battery.
Hopefully i will have some more space soon . As my Brumby is up for sale and ive been clearing up my wee workshop shed.
Then i be able to try and fix it up.
Ive made an wee short vid of it.
