Scooter Ski... The non-wheeled Reliant!

Postby grifterkid » Fri Apr 14, 2017 1:37 pm

Hello one and all.

I am keen to find out more about the Reliant constructed Scooter Ski...

I think it was produced from the mid-1960's to the mid-1970's but cannot be too sure on that!

It seems like it was a very popular craft if this article from 'Reliant Review' is anything to go by...


I would love to know more about it and I would dearly love to get my hands on one. As so many were produced there must surely be some survivors lurking around out there?!

If you know anything about these or know of one that I could nab give us a shout!
Onwards and upwards...

Coincidentally I was reading about this product last night, in Elvis Payne's excellent book (only £18 or so.. go on, you know you want to)

Anyway, the book contains this brief section on the Scooter Ski:
