Are you ready for the first BSRA National Scooter Rally since the Coronavirus locked us all down?And if that wasn’t enough to get excited about, there’s the brand new edition 27 of ScooterNova magazine too!
Edition 27 (September/October 2021) includes:
Simply Special – the stunning Lambretta SX200 gracing the cover. Then there is Gulf No 20 – a tasty Vespa smallie that goes very well indeed, thanks for asking…
A lot of us have been spending time over the 18 months or so taking part in riding events, and edition 20 has reports on the ACU National Road Rally of 2021, Herefordshire on the Edge, the APSA Gunpowder Run, from Italy the Dolomite Experience Lui Tour 2021 and from 1966 a ride untaken by two young ladies on a little Vespa SS90 from London to Milan.
Still in 1966, we look at two scooters offered to the public back then, a couple of 150cc options from Vespa and Lambretta and put them back to back to decide what we would buy if in the market all those years ago.
While back in the modern world we test ride a 34-speed, classic Lambretta with electric power (honestly, it is far better than you may think), while Sticky looks at ethanol in your tank with the introduction of E10 petrol.
We couldn’t go without sharing this stunning Lambretta Series 1 Framebreather with you all mind you,it literally is a work of art. And if you like rare scooters, then the 1959 IWL SR59 Berlin – a classic scooter from behind The Wall – ticks that box too.
