London to Milan by Lambretta

It’s a ride that’s often discussed in pubs and bars around the UK, taking your Lambretta scooter back to its birth place in Italy.

Many have done it over the years, and we discovered some history of a mid-60s record-breaking Lambretta here on Scooternova previously.

But the first to be awarded an acknowledged record for the ride was oneĀ  Harold Rowell from the Isle of Man did the first run from London to Milan in 22 hours 42 minutes on a TV 175 Series 2. As the advert pictured here shows, it looks like Castrol lubed his way across Europe!
