NoHo Scooters' Post-Mortem

NoHo Scooters had their farewell party, sale & ride last Saturday, December 15th, 2012. If you recall, we posted owner Mike Frankovich's "going-out-of-business" statement in the last blog post. We all bid a fond farewell to NoHo Scooters last Saturday, by showing up sometime between 1-5pm.

There was free pizza, chips, soda, as well as some pretty good deals on some of the last remaining articles in the shop. I saw a couple of people getting some good deals on scooters, in fact, while I was there. A lot of people from the scooter scene showed up to say goodbye to NoHo throughout the day.

All in all, it was a nice sendoff, followed by one last Holiday ride, led by Eric and Justin of the Los Angeles Scooter Group.

Of interesting note:
The mechanics, who formed NoHo Scooters' Service Department, said that they will be staying open, even though Noho Scooters is going to close this month. "SCOOTER SERVICE" scooter repair shop will stay open in the alley behind NoHo Scooters' old location. Mechanics Greasy, Jano & Junior will continue to service scooters in the old NoHo Scooters' service bay for the next few months, until the building they are in is leased. In the meantime, they will be looking for a more permanent location - details will be announced in this BLOG when that happens. Their PHONE NUMBER is (818) 861-4640; SCOOTER SERVICE is behind 5144 Vineland Ave., North Hollywood, CA (in the alley off of Vineyard and Harstock St.).
