Old fat furry catpuss
Wake up and look at this thing that I bring
Wake up, be bright, be golden and light
Bagpuss, oh hear what I sing…

SeƱorita

24 July 2014.

Mark Chadwick from Carnforth has an eye for a curvy Señorita; in this case the sultry lines of Eibar’s unique ‘Winter model’ version of the Li Series 2. Not only does it come equipped with a turning front mudguard instead of the usual spoon-bill, but also a handsome combination of angular SX-style headlight surround and the usual Li S2 ’bars.

Forrest Gump

26 June 2014.

“Life is like a box of chocolates,” began Forrest in a southern states drawl, to which I can follow, “so are scooters” – all different flavours and often full of surprises too.

Flamebreather (Keeps on Burning)

22 May 2014.

Owner Andy is 49, originally from Lichfield but now lives in Widnes, Cheshire and is a member of Phase 3 Warrington and District Scooter Club. He has been involved in the scene since the late 70s, riding his own scooter to rallies since 1982. With this in mind I thought it would be interesting to delve deeper into the psyche of a scooter builder, looking into the pitfalls he has come across and the advice he would give to a prospective novice.

Green Hornet

Gillette: The best a man can get

1 May 2014.

The smooth flowing lines of a full-bodied Lambretta GP are perfect as the canvas for a tasty street racer. Talking of smooth, you can’t beat a good razor to get rid of last night’s stubble either…

Martini Gold

27 March 2014.

For many, the stereotypical image of ‘perfected Mod machinery’ is forever cemented as that of Sting’s mount in Quadrophenia. Railing against that opinion however, this Vespa GS VS5 is a study in the concept of ‘less is more’ and is actually probably closer to the authentic look of an early 1960s peacock chariot.

1958 Vespa GS 150 VS4

27 February 2014.

“I love Italian food, I holiday in Italy, I even married an Italian.” Given her self-confessed obsession with all things Italian, it’s hardly a surprise that Toni Bonsignore owns and rides a neat vintage Vespa too.

To Think This Is England
