Do the next scooter rally in comfort and style!

4b98f96dbc8bca7b64209244945b68d1Fed up of camping? Can’t afford a B’n’B? This homemade scooter-caravan hybrid may be just the answer you’re looking for. Based on a beat of a scooter – the Soviet era Tula – or the Muravey commercial vehicle version of it… (think Russian Lambro. Lambretta-heads), I’ve been unable to track down much information on it. It’s a British build, put together somewhere in Leicestershire. And as well as a fabrication job, it looks like a first class restoration, from a less than promising original vehicle, see the first shot below! If you are the talented, but slightly nutty builder of this unique vehicle, please get in touch, I’d love to know more!

Fun fact: Muravey is Russian for Ant, (there’s a bit of a insect theme here, Vespa = Wasp, Ape = Bee, Muravey = Ant), Although, perhaps “Ulitka” would be more suitable. That’s Russian for snail. More for carrying it’s home on it’s back than for the speed connotations, although that’s probably relevant too!

UPDATE: If you fancy tackling a project like this yourself, (or perhaps something simpler such as this) you could do worse than check out the “Teardrops & Tiny Trailers” forum (conveniently shortened to tnttt.com. I didn’t even know such a category existed, but fantastically, it does… the internet is a wonderful thing!

Here’s a link to the original site.
