Here at ScooterNova magazine we like to do things a little different from the rest. Already many of you know that our ethos is about the scooter, the rider and the journey, and that the magazine itself is a high quality product that many of you kindly inform us is more book-like than a periodical. Well another little thing we have up our sleeve is a gift for those riders whose scooters are featured within our pages.
Made in England
When our friends at SLUK launched last year, they offered those who had scooter featured in their online magazine an exclusive badge for their steed, and very nice it is too. A badge of honour if you will. Taking inspiration from SLUK, while working on the production of an item of ScooterNova merchandise, we decided it would be a nice touch to offer an exclusive version to those whose scooters had been featured in ScooterNova magazine.
The item in question is a leather key holder, retro in design and unlike any other currently available on the scooter market. We sourced a specialist leather producer here in England (Walsall in the West Midlands, we have learned, is the leather goods capital of Great Britain), a family run business who were established almost 100 years ago, and we worked with them to produce these stylish little key holders.
Inside they have four clips for your keys and when folded to show the exclusive ScooterNova design (and proudly marked ‘Made in England’), a tab poppers over to secure the holder closed.
So what about the exclusivity then? We have these for sale in black or tan coloured leather with the design embossed in gold upon them. For those who have a scooter featured in ScooterNova magazine however – and only for them – we have had some black holders produced with the design embossed in silver. A small but essential touch we think.
For everyone else, you can buy a key holder from our online shop by clicking here, where you will also find a range of quality T-shirts and our popular messenger bags also available.
By the way, did we mention that due to popular demand we’ve had some bags produced in fuchsia – or pink, if you will?
We will occasionally take merchandise to rallies and events, be due to the fact we travel by scooter this is not always possible. However, we can take pre-purchased items to an event if anyone wishes to save on the postage. But please contact us in advance to arrange this, as of course we only have so much storage space in our panniers!
