Regular readers of ScooterNova magazine may recall a book celebrating Lambretta chopper scooters which was published in early 2021 and raised £10k for charity. Well, following the success of that first offering, the lads behind it have been beavering away on a second volume, bigger and better than before and ScooterNova magazine are once again proud to be one of the sponsors involved.
Inspired originally by the charity work of Vince Wooloff and his Oddballs scooter rally, Paul, Brendan Ingamells, Jacko Jacks and Geoff Townsend are the main folk behind the chopper books. The new hardback book, subtitled ‘The Builders and Riders Edition’, has a whopping 320 pages inside featuring Lambretta choppers of all shapes and sizes, from full-blown custom scooters to shed-built rally goers, spanning many years that Lambretta choppers have ridden the roads. Chapters include one dedicated to the fabricators where builders write about the scooter they have created.
There are also contributions from a variety of people including Russ Mitchell of Exile Cycles in the USA, Pete Merchant of Soley Scooters, Sticky (Lambretta Spanners Manual) and Andy here at ScooterNova magazine.
So if you have even passing interest in Lambretta choppers, scooters in general, you fancy another nice scooter book on your coffee table or simply want to help raise some money for charity, then the Lambretta Choppers Book Pt 2 is for you.
The price in the UK is £29.99 per book and that includes postage. As before, the proceeds will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust via Oddballs rally. And once they are gone that is it – as with volume 1, no reprints are planned.
And how do get yourself a copy? You can send money via Paypal (Paul has requested friends and family please, to avoid losing out on fees) for at least £29.99 per book to PaulMuirhead02@gmail.com and DON’T FORGET to included your name, contact details and delivery address.
The Chopper Book volume 2 will be published around mid-August and all pre-orders will be posted out then. For more information search the Lambretta Chopper Book on Facebook.
