welcome to the july edition of scootering

This month marked the end of an era for me, I sold my scooter dyno outfit. For those who don’t know, before taking up the position of editor here at Scootering, Ispent a considerable number of years as co-owner of Scooterotica garage in North Yorkshire, where not only did we (Sean Brady and myself) produce many show winning scooters, but also operated a full scooter tuning and dyno centre. At the back of my mind, I always thought that I’d still ‘keep my hand in’ of a weekend in between my editorial duties for the magazine. However, by the end of this year I will have completed three years as editor, and during the time I’ve been at the helm, I have found precious little time to utilise the dyno, if…

AF Rayspeed Clo5e Ratio Gearbox update Ben at AF Rayspeed has sent over a last minute update on the situation regarding the company’s five-speed gearboxes. As mentioned previously, a question mark was originally raised over the selector component of the gearbox following a failure in high-power race engines on the track, and so the part has since undergone a complete redesign. AF has insisted on getting a production sample check of the new design, which it has now received and fitted into high-power race engines for extreme and harsh testing sessions. The next phase of the process, once the new uprated items have arrived at AF, is to supply selectors to replace all existing examples of the current design. Additionally, having been made aware of further selector failures in road going scooters, AF believes…

For those scooterists who are in search of Lambretta’s ‘holy grail’ (according to some)... need to quickly get in touch with Cambridge Lambretta. Trevor’s been out hunting and found a trio of Series 1s including an original British registered Series 1 TV175.

As we went to press, a Series 1 Li was also available but these won’t hang around for long, so if you are interested... get your skates on! www.lambretta.co.uk…

golden gathering

No-one in the area of Sheffield’s Randal Street on Sunday, May 13, could have been in any doubt that there was a very special scooter related celebration under way. It’s exactly 60 years since Armando Pastorelli introduced Sheffield to the wonders of Lambretta and more than 200 scooterists shared the occasion with Giulio and Guido, who now run the family business. Fans of their legendary specials should note that a range of specially branded ‘60th Anniversary’ merchandise is now in stock, but don’t hang around as it’s selling very quickly. Proving that there’s always something new to see at Armando’s was a book-signing by Gino, who’s recently published the family’s favourite recipes from their home region of Italy under the title of Trulli Pugliese. Everyone at Scootering magazine sends the Pastorellis…
