The more I see these engine-clad vintage bikes, the more I like them. All the looks of a vintage cycle with the bonus of not having to pedal uphill. What's not to like? Very little when it comes to this Philips Gadabout motorised bicycle.

It actually dates back to 1956 and comes with a 50cc engine, good enough to get you around your local area at a decent speed. It does need some work, you'll need a couple of tyres and lights to get through the MOT. But according to the seller, the bike has been 'dry stored' for the last 20 years and is in 'good running order', so nothing major to worry about.

£150 is the current price.
