Simplex was the only motorcycle manufacturer located in the Deep South for many years, Simplex's minimalist philosophy was maintained throughout the company's history, whose designs changed little after 1935. The Simplex Automatic was produced from 1953-1960. This black and red Automatic seems to be from the earlier years. The Automatic was made with a 2-stroke, 150cc motor. The scooter does not have a kickstand - it is being held up by a wood block. This scooter runs, but does not have a title. ALL ITEMS SOLD "AS-IS"
