Lambretta TV 185

29 August 2014

As the scooter boom of the 1950s carried on unabated into the 60s, many shops began to adapt standard scooters into their own ‘dealer special’ models. Arguably the most famous of all came from Watford based Arthur Francis who brought us the S-Type Lambretta; 50 years on it still inspires Lambretta owners to build scooters like this one.

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.

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.
