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.

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.
