Lambretta Cento, Brighton beach.
Doing the rounds recently amongst the daily newspapers, is a story of a chap who has discovered a load of old photos from somewhere in Kent, among which is a 1960s press photo of a Lambretta being ‘ridden’ in the water off the beach in Brighton.

Riding home today on the scooter I nearly ended up blown across all sides of the road, depsite taking a more sheltered B-road route instead of the main dual carriageway.
In comparision to some who are suffering in this biblical weather however, it doesn’t seem so bad now I’m safely back at home in the dry.
