Re: Any Scooterists on OMJ?
Used to deal a lot with Eric at esp scooters in Wigan. Just googled to see if they were still going only to see he died 4 years back. He was a top fella, really helpful and honest.
There was a place in batley too but I can't remember their name now. They used to advertise in on target magazine, also did clothes too. I walked in there mid 90s to look at scooters. Fella looked at the vespas section and asked if I wanted pleasure, then the lambretta and said pain. I've said earlier on in the thread that I didn't get much or any Pain with mine. at one time there were about a dozen of us locally having lambrettas and we rarely had them break down. Used to do the Yorkshire scooter alliance runs, maybe 500 scoots. I swear you'd see more vespas at the side of the road.
Lambrettas look so cool to me as do early vespas. Always found the px range and t5s ugly. I kind of liked the fact lambrettas finished in 71 and therefore remain of a period. The Indian stuff and Spanish never interested me. Innocenti only true lambi. Vespas continued and glad they did but there's nothing pleasing on the eye about a modern vespa.
Harley davisons don't float my boat? How can they? I have an inner mod that wins every time.
Passed two harleys today and not surprisingly ridden by two fat old scruffy blokes wearing shit clothes. and sadly everytime I pass a scooter it's driven by a fat old cunt wearing shit clothes. The mods that are as modern as a Philips n1700.
