Scooter Shop Burglary

Sadly, at some time during the night of Sunday 21 April, our friends at Cornwall Scooter Centre were burgled with six classic scooters part of the haul that thieves got away with.

In what the police have suggested looks like an organised gang were behind, the shop in Bodmin had six scooters stolen belonging to various customers. These were:

  • Vespa T5 Millennium in pearlescent white, limited edition number 41 of 400 made
  • 1967 Vespa 150 Sprint with a brand new Malossi 225cc kit built on new Pinasco engine casings, new wiring loom and fuel tank that was a 10th Wedding Anniversary present
  • Lambretta SX150, white with a newly built RT195 with BGM Clubman exhaust
  • Spanish Lambretta Li white/purple, modified to take GP panelwork
  • Vespa P125X blue with new Polini 177 kit, black crash bars and several mirrors
  • Vespa 150 Super, white with dodgy floor and stand

At the time of writing it looks like the thieves also took cash from the shop’s safe but appear to have left tools and spare parts untouched. 

Please keep your eyes and ears open for anything that may be offered for sale, whether complete scooters or parts and if you have any information of these scooter thieves please inform Bodmin Police or Cornwall Scooter Centre (01208 72966).

The same applies if you hear of anyone receiving stolen goods or trying to move them on.  Remember, as much as we all despise such thieving scumbags, such activities are only attractive to them if they can subsequently sell their stolen goods onwards. These scooters need to become as ‘hot’ as possible and if there is one good thing to say about social media in the 21st century, it’s that we can all come together to make things like this happen.

What the SLUK is going on?

Hot off the press from Scooterist Meltdown here’s some information about a new and exciting project for our scooter world….

SLUK News

SLUK News

Do you love scooters but are fed up with dead-tree scooter media?

Would you like something that was more up to date, faster with the news, more interactive maybe?

Would you prefer it if you could obtain quality scooter content in a format that you could access anywhere, at any time, with the phone in your pocket or the computer in front of you?

What about going beyond a static format and adding video content designed both to inform and entertain?

How about your scooter media not being a one-way street, but by you being able to actively take part in real time?

How would you feel about all of this being brought to you by forward-thinking scooter riders like yourself.

Would you like to still get the quality of writing that only comes from knowledgeable and experienced writers?

Would you like to see big, powerful images displayed beautifully on a revolutionary website that blows the competition into the weeds?

How about if there was one place on the net that acted as a hub for scooterists worldwide? Somewhere you can find out about forthcoming events and post reports of those you’ve attended in video or photographic format.

How about a site that allowed you to get a better deal on insurance, clothing or simply to find your nearest dealer?

What would you pay for such a service?

What if we said that you do not need to visit a newsagent to pay £4 every month or take out a subscription for this?

How about if we told you that the price for all this is FREE?

If that sounds like a good deal then you need SLUK.

SLUK is short for ScooterLab.uk and it’s coming to you soon.
