Scooters, traders, deals & more at ScooterExpo

This Sunday will see our new joint ScooterLab/ScooterNova show arrive at the hallowed halls of Alfreton Leisure Centre, a venue steeped in scootering history. Home of the iconic NSRA Trade & Custom shows from 1989-1991. And have we got a great line up for you!

We’d like to thank our sponsors for showing faith in us, Lexham Insurance (check out their stand for a chance to win a year’s free insurance) and Putoline Lubricants  (visit their stand to get all your questions about oils, eprotectors and octane boosters answered). Of course, we’d also like to thank all the other exhibitors and traders for jumping on board. We’d also like to thank all the showgoers who have helped to create a buzz about the event before it has even happened. We hope you all come along and have a great day out. 

Here’s all the pre-show info you should need…

Glyn Dove’s Pseudo Satisfaction…
…and Nick Jolly’s Hall of Fame were at Alfreton in 1991. When was the last time you saw either of these scooters out and about? Both have been dusted off just for this show.
Wake has only been shown twice since it was rebuilt and featured in edition 10 of ScooterNova magazine. It will be at Alfreton at the weekend along with potentially two other ex-Jeremy Howlett bikes, including Dazzle.

So for a show report, results and lots of photographs as well as a neat video too, please click on the image-link below and enjoy as normal!

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.
