welcome to the june edition of scootering

The eagle-eyed readers among you may have noticed our updated Scootering masthead logo. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for the past year, but was at first unsure how to approach it. I wanted to ‘doff my cap’ to the very beginning of the magazine and its heritage, so chose to reflect that in the redesign of the current logo, using hints from the past. The dot over the ‘i’ was originally done by Stu Garland for the man who started Scootering magazine: Steve Myatt, and was a reference to the Prisoner TV series. That, along with shading and other hints now make up the new Scootering logo… I hope you all approve. Something more noticeable on the front cover is the new Lambretta V-Special. Now I’m a man (like many…

lambretta concessionaires: the complete story 1951 to 1971

While there is much more information circulating about Lambretta scooters and machines now than there ever has been… the definitive story, from inception to conclusion, of Lambretta in the UK hasn’t been told in full until now. Stuart Owen’s book, is informative and enlightening as well as containing a few surprises too. Published by Scooterproducts in Westonsuper- Mare there are three elements contained in first print run copies, akin to the classic spaghetti western. The Good Lambretta Concessionaires is packed with in-depth text across all seven chapters. Accompanied by a veritable treasure trove of reproduced images; from advertising leaflets, through rare photographs to press releases, correspondence from and to Lambretta Concessionaires, and much more beside. Taken together, it traces the rise, and the eventual unexpected demise, of Lambretta in the UK. It was…

struggling to cope with power

In the 70th year of the Lambretta we should all come together to celebrate this great milestone. If we don’t then as history will tell you, in the end: divided we will fall Everyone has been gearing up to gather in Italy for the celebrations to mark the 70th year since Innocenti created the iconic machine. What should and I hope will be a momentous and unique event unfortunately is tinged with a sadness that underlies the current situation. When the Lambretta Club d’Italia announced the eagerly awaited news of where the event would be, along with the programme format, there was great excitement. This was short lived as rumour of trouble with the venue meant it might be cancelled. For all those in the UK trying to book time off from…

rattling around the garage

“I bought my last helmet largely as it was the only one I can legally wear with the front flipped up so I can have a fag as I ride.” To be entirely honest, I used to be a member of that group, always answering that a well-fitting full face lid is your best bet, “If you have a ten bob head, buy a ten bob helmet,” I would cry, and more! Parkas and MA1s were regularly dispatched with a sneer; tales of cold and waterlogged clothing would come out. And as for daring to ride around in shorts... heaven forbid! This was the crime of all crimes! “Gravel rash isn’t pleasant,” I would shout. “You do know they don’t use anaesthetic when they pull the bits out? Then someone pointed something…
