Kurt Schweitzer, president of Urban Village Scooters in the South Wedge, describes his entry into the world of retail as "quite a roller coaster ride."

Since March, Schweitzer, 50, has sold the lightweight, environmentally friendly motorcycles from his shop at 700 S. Clinton Ave.

"I learned a lot about retail in general and the scooter industry in particular," he said, and he expects business to improve in 2008 as more city residents and college students grow tired of paying high gasoline prices.
