Scootering classics: SIP Scooter

Scootering scoops ‘SIP Project’ scrambler with Butcher Garage!

Scootering went over to Butcher Garage in St Petersburg, Russia to meet up with the lads. It’s a powerhouse of invention and attention to detail, as well as being a brilliant place with characters to match. This superb Vespa Scrambler is a collaboration between Butcher and SIP, and suffice to say… it’s an awesome piece of engineering, using top quality components, executed in a stunning paint finish.

The full story is available in our new ‘Scootering Extra’ subs-club — there you can log in and see the full story, read all about the engineering and components, and view the huge selection of hi-res, detailed shots.
