welcome to the december edition of scootering

Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. When I sat down to this year’s BSRA meeting at Brid, I knew there had been murmurings across the internet recently, in regard to the National Rallies and the need/want for them to ‘bring something new’ to the table. But, what I didn’t know, was that planning was already afoot for said shakeup and VFM head-honcho Steve Foster would put a question mark over Brid 2018. Once the phrase ‘TBC’ was announced at the custom show, it wasn’t long before the conspiracy theories and rumour mills were in full churn as to why this was happening.

chequebook scootering

During the 1980s scooter scene there was a surge in the number of custom scooters being built. It didn’t matter whether it was a Vespa or a Lambretta, the competition was so intense.

This was the decade where we first started to see commission scooters built to order. It was also the first time that chequebook scootering was mentioned. What did it mean though and why was the phrase bandied around? At a time when you could buy a good second hand scooter for a few hundred pounds to see some of the high-end custom scooters costing several thousand…
