Innocenti Lambro on Casa Lambretta Calendar – March 2018

Coincidentally, this weekend sees the Antwerp Custom Show taking place and their ‘theme’ for this year’s event is “3-wheeled scooters, sidecars, Apes & Lambros.”

ScooterNova magazine will also have a presence at the Antwerp Show this weekend, courtesy of the Lambro Club UK. The Club will have a fine display of three-wheelers in Belgium, including the rare and fabulous FB ‘Gelati’ 3-wheeler, as featured in edition 2 of ScooterNova magazine.

Our friends Scott and Jackie of the Lambro Club will have copies of all editions of ScooterNova for sale (including the brand new number 6), along with a limited range of merchandise including T-shirts and hoodies, so be sure to pop along and see them while at the show this weekend!
