06 Kickstart 

The upfront section with all the latest news, views and product reviews! 

 

14 Feature Scooter: Yambretta 

There is no other engine, in our humble opinion, which has been slotted into a classic scooter and sounds better than the Yamaha 350 YPVS. A true rip snorter  

 

22 Rally Review: Scarborough 

The first National of the season, Time to blast the cobwebs off the scooters, and meet ‘n’ greet the faces and places we’ve missed over winter. 

 

28 Feature Scooters: Little Dragon & Green Hornet  

A positively stunning brace of scooters, dedicated to the master of Wing Chun and Jeet Kune Do… Bruce Lee.

The Vespa wide frame is a mystery to most British riders, but as Stan discovered, Wessex Scooters are determined to bring it out of the shadows. 

 

52 Rally Report: VMSC extravaganza 2019  

The VMSC event is always one to look forward to. A vibrant, exciting and rewarding day for everyone!

Part 6 of our homage to scooter legend Kev Walsh. In this episode we take a look at, apparently, the ideal way to forget all the stress of running a major scooter organisation… and that’s to join another one! 

 

 

60 Feature Scooter: Keeping it in the family 

When Mark Broadhurst’s business hit hard times, he was doing his best to keep things going and not lose the lot. And that’s where the story of this scooter starts…

84 Kintsugi: Strength and beauty in imperfection 

An otherwise innocuous image, framing a scooter snapshot in time, sparked the interest of travelling scooter journalist Christian Giarrizzo, prompting him on a journey to track down the owner and scooters. 

 

94 Tech Torque: Exhaustive issues 

The traditional Lambretta exhaust system can be problematic at the best of times. In fact, just keeping it bolted to the engine can be a real challenge! Stu explains all. 

 

106 Feature Scooter: Little Rascal 

Little Rascal caused a stir when it first appeared on the scene in the 80s. It’s a scooter which has a special place in a lot of people’s hearts and she’s looking better than ever. A ground-breaking scooter and possibly the first of its kind  

 

112 Basilicata 

Travelling scooter journalist Christian Giarrizzo takes us on an off-the-beaten-track guide to lesser-known places, each with their own undiscovered and unique charm.
