A WW2 pilot had a scooter he used for rides around the countryside he liked so much, he smuggled it back to the states, a vintage Salsbury Model 72—one of three known to exist, and the only one remaining with military markings.


 Charles H. Harbaugh enlisted to fight in World War II at the age of 18. He was part of the D-Day invasion and fought at the Battle of the Bulge and became a C-47 pilot in the 27th Air Transport Group, and took part in the Berlin airlift after the war.

His grandsons found that scooter in pieces in boxes on his farm
