Rimini Lambretta Centre Open Day

Last week we packed our bags for the ride to the much anticipated Rimini Lambretta Centre Open Day.  It certainly didn’t disappoint! Team RLC worked hard to entertain all the Lambretta enthusiasts who made the trip to their new shop in Poggia Torriana.

 

Impeccable workshop, stunning displays and a warm welcome met us. The Siluru record breaking Lambretta,  two SX twins and a prototype Lambretta taxi kept everyone entertained. There was even a chance to ride the shop demonstrators featuring the new Casa Lambretta 225cc kit and the BSG developed 305cc engine. 

  

          

A full day of scooter heaven was followed by a top party with food, music and more scooter talk into the small hours. Scooter sensory overload.

We’ll still be smiling about this for months.
