Is this the ultimate 1980s custom scooter memorabilia?
If you’ve got money to spare and plenty of shelf space then the show-winning trophies for the custom Lambretta’s Dazzle, Wake and Spirit Walker are being sold via a well known internet auction site. The decision was made following a break-in at the Howlett family storage garage in Essex, during which some scooter related items were stolen. Jeremy Howelett was the person behind these ground-breaking scooters, built and shown between 1984 and 1988. Following the theft at their property Jeremy says he decided to “do something good with what is left.” The proceeds from the sale of these 45 remaining trophies, plates and shields dating from 1984 to 1988 will be going to charity.
By the way, if you want to see a couple of the amazing show-winning scooters that were responsible for many of these trophies back in the 1980s, plus 98 other custom and classic scooters from over the decades then you should write 28 July 2019 in your diary and attend ScooterExpo at Alfreton on the Derbyshire/Notts border. With 100 scooters entered and a fine selection of quality traders it promises to be a great day out!
