Since Scarborough we’ve had a lot of messages asking about our t-shirts, bags and other ScooterNova kit.  Well, we’ve had a word with Crusader Promotions and they’ve been busy creating a variety of messenger bags and a ScooterNova tshirt which will be available at the Weston-super-Mare rally.

Last weekend saw the scooter season opener in Burton-upon-Trent, at local club the Burton Brewers SC’s annual custom show.
In a slight departure from the norm however, we joined forces with our friends over at the Scooter Lab UK and  shared our photos and stories with them.

So for a show report, results and lots of photographs as well as a neat video too, please click on the image-link below and enjoy as normal!

Reasonably priced classics? 

It’s been suggested that the price of classic Lambretta and Vespa scooters lately has spiralled out of reach of many. 

However while some on eBay are asking fortunes (which we doubt they’re receiving) and nameless businesses located half a world away are all to keen to take your money, we reckon a look locally could net you what you want. 

At JB Tuning in Southend recently and they’ve got this Italian Innocenti Li Series 3 for sale. 175cc motor, MOT and lively blue & white paint. 

At £2650 ono (eg it sounds like a deal can be struck!) it proves you don’t have to risk an unseen resto from abroad for twice the price to ride a tidy classic 60s scooter on the road these days.

So what has your local shop got to offer then?
