Scooter Lifestyle by Ian Grainger

Great book, very much picture-led, but with some fantastic text too   – giving a great overview of the scootering scene from the 80’s to the present. Nicely written, will bring back lots of memories for many people. If you’ve got even a passing interest in classic scooters, get this book.
