Čezeta

Have you heard the great news? The legendary scooter from Prague - Čezeta is planning a comeback! The original 501 model, also known as 'the pig' (due to its shape) first appeared in Czechoslovakia in 1956 and was designed by J. F. Koch. Today a new company, registered as Čezeta motors s.r.o. is testing and developing the production of a 506 model - five electric scooter prototypes inspired by the 50s design. There is a website entirely in English dedicated to Čezeta, where you can read more about the history of the scooter, as well as browse through the original models for sale... Wouldn't this be a great souvenir from Prague?

Below are a few pictures and videos that will take you down memory lane...careful, you will fall in love!








The new 506 model will look like this:
