welcome to the february edition of scootering

Already the memories of 2016 are fading as we rapidly approach the looming mountain of the 2017 season ahead and all the delights it will have to offer. If all the indicators from the previous 12 months are anything to go by, the deliveries of these 12 are set to be absolutely phenomenal. This year will not only see the 70th anniversary of the Lambretta, but also the launch of the new model at the celebrations in Italy. Dealers of all sizes are now geared up with more exotic Lambretta and Vespa items than ever before, new frames, cases, kits, gearboxes… anything and everything you can think of. The sheer scale of what has happened over the past few years in terms of development is quite astonishing. Something else to keep…

lambretta speed record attempt gathers pace

The final weekend before Christmas saw the first test run of the SRP Racetech Lambretta streamliner. The team lead by Stuart Day and Paul Baker see this as an important milestone towards their attempt at a new official speed record in 2017. Though only a shakedown run to check handling, stability and operating systems everything went according to plan. The idea of attempting to break the established record, currently held by Innocenti since 1951, was first conceived by Stuart way back in 2015. So why has it taken more than two years to get to this stage? Well, beating Innocenti’s record of 125mph will take some doing and to make it an official record they will need to complete two runs in the opposite direction of each other with the average…

new ‘px’ for 2017?

As previously reported by Scootering magazine, LML has been working for some time to bring a Euro 4 compliant scooter to the market. In an email sent to dealers in early January, LML announced that its new models would enter production shortly and start arriving in the UK from mid-April. The 200cc and Star Lite versions are being discontinued, however the 125cc engine is scheduled to be available in both automatic and manual versions. Although no images have yet been released, the mention of a manual option raises a tantalising prospect that the new machines may be a further development of a PX-derived frame. As the last available Vespa PXs were being delivered to dealers, the official Vespa Facebook page posed the question “The gears of the PX or liveliness of the…

farewell jonnie bolland

We at Scootering magazine were saddened to hear of the death of Jonnie Bolland on December 8. Whether you classed him as a close friend or were barely on nodding terms with him, your enjoyment of the British scooter scene was enriched by his efforts and desire to improve all aspects of rallying. Although a native of Manchester, Jonnie became a key figure in the Stockport Crusaders Scooter Club. An active and enthusiastic scooterist from the late 1970s, Jonnie later became a driving force within VFM. Despite a long fight against lung disease, his passion for scootering remained undiminished. As recently as the National Rally meeting in November he was an active participant – albeit by telephone. His funeral was held on December 20 with scooterists from across the country packing…

winter at the museum

It’s not just the average scooterist who sets aside a project or two for the winter: Vittorio Tessera is no exception and recent arrivals at the Scooter and Lambretta Museum are ready for attention. First off the blocks is a 1953 British-built Oscar scooter. One of only two believed to exist, this example is complete with sidecar. Although it was resprayed at some point it only requires light restoration before being ready to join the other British scooters on display. Destined for the pre-war hall is another British-built machine, in this case an extremely scarce 1921 Unibus scooter. Sadly lacking its body, this will require a full and complex restoration before reaching the required exhibition standard. Finally, Vittorio has recently acquired a rare 1940 Velta scooter. Designed and built in Italy by Vittorio…
