Birth of an engine

Lambretta engine by Uni-Auto

It’s not often you get to see the process involved in the production of a cast aluminium engine casing, but Uni-Auto of India have kindly shared this video showing the process.

The tooling involved

Uni-Auto have recently begun production of new 200cc Lambretta engine casings featuring many updated features, as seen in the latest edition 11 of ScooterNova magazine.

The first stage of the finished product.

The video below shows the cleaning of the tooling from the previous casting, pouring in of molten metal and the pressure casting process, before the ‘finished’ casing is extracted.
Pretty interesting to watch we think, and hope you do too. Hopefully they will make further videos showing the machining involved at the next stage of production.

Eire – new ScooterNova stockist

We are proud and pleased to announce that there is now a stockist of ScooterNova magazine in Ireland, which will mean a cheaper option for Irish scooterists to buy the magazine.

The shop is Bell, Book & Candle in Galway, a secondhand book shop run by scooterist Paul Deacy.

As well as ScooterNova magazine the shop also stocks vinyl records that many of us love searching through, along with plenty more besides. He offers a mail order service too, as well as welcoming customers through the door.

Bell, Book & Candle can be found at

The Small Crane, Sea Road, Galway, H91 DV76. Their telephone number is 091 589060 and you can email them via pauldeacy1@gmail.com (postage costs within Ireland will be cheaper than buying individual magazines from us in the UK).

With larger shop chains in Ireland apparently reducing the magazines they stock, we ask you to please support independents like Bell, Book & Candle.

Paul not only has the brand new edition of ScooterNova in stock, but also all back issues from number 1 onwards for those wishing to catch up on their reading.

ScooterNova at Mablethorpe Scooter Rally

Big thanks to Phil & Julie for their offer of a bit of space in their caravan, which means…. we’ll see you at The Great Eastern Rally next weekend!

Lest We Forget

Back in September the Lambretta Club Great Britain (LCGB) organised a scooter rally for club members in Ieper (Ypres), Belgium, to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War 1.
ScooterNova joined over 300 other scooter riders who journeyed across the English Channel to pay their respects, and we made this short video of the weekend.
