ScooterExpo – a fabulous new show

This weekend saw the doors open for ScooterExpo, an event that had been eight months in the planning, although in my mind for a fair bit longer than that.
While I may have first considered the concept of a new scooter event prior to launching ScooterNova magazine back in 2017, it couldn’t have happened without the help of my friend Iggy at ScooterLab UK. After sharing ideas of an event organised by the both of us, we sat down at the end of 2018 to discuss the potential, various suggestions, and after he came up with the venue, ScooterExpo was born – the first joint event by ScooterNova magazine and SLUK.

ScooterNova at EuroLambretta

We finally arrived at the rally site for this year’s EuroLambretta in Zakopane, Poland this afternoon. We set off from home last Friday and have ridden our old Lambretta scooters just over 1000 miles and through five countries… so far!

The site was bustling we we arrived and we were soon chatting with friends and fellow Lambretta riders from all over Europe.

Tomorrow (Saturday) you will find ScooterNova magazine helping out on the Lambretta Club Great Britain stall in the ‘market area’ of the rally. If any fellow riders need spares etc for their scooters then the LCGB will as always have the essential get you home stuff, along with their popular range of merchandise too.

The club will also have the latest edition of ScooterNova magazine for sale, as well as previous editions. We will have a small selection of magazine merchandise also available, along with offering subscriptions and renewals for all those who like to do this annually at the EuroLambretta rally, oh and did I mention we have some new, shiny stickers too?

So please feel free to come by and say hello tomorrow to us and the LCGB stall volunteers and have a great time in Poland!

Ride safe,

Andy

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.
