Jim from the Lambretta club of South Africa sent through some fantastic pics of their 2015 Afrophenia 2015 tour, which took place in September last year.

The route took them from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town, going through Jeffreys Bay,
Knysna, Oudtshoorn, Barrydale, Hermanus, Stellenbosch and finally Cape Town.

In total 11 scooters started the trip, 3 Lambretta’s and 8 Vespa’s plus back
up vehicle and scoot.

The Lambretta’s were:

TV 175 S2 – Green and chrome – owner Jim
TV 175 S2 – light blue – owner Derry
TV200 – blue and white – owner Carlos

Afrophenia 2015 RouteThe distance covered was approximately 700 miles or 1200 km’s, over a ‘leisurely’ 9 days… an epic trip, with awesome scenery, great mates and memories that will last forever. The pictures and video will give you some idea of what they experienced.


South African Sunday Rideout

sundayAndy from the Lambretta Club of South Africa sent me this pic of their Jo’berg rideout. Nice to se a couple of S1’s. He kindly informed me that it was 33°C… And although it’s not too chilly here in the UK at the moment, I’d trade a few of our Winter days for a day or two of that!

Jo’Berg – Durban Easter Run

DurbanbadgeAndy, my mate from the Lambretta Club of South Africa, sent me a pic of the patch I designed for their Easter run… an impressive ride from Johannesburg to Durban. Check it out on Google maps… it’s a fair old distance. I’ll post some pics up after the event, as he’s promised to send me some.

Andy is keen to swap some LCSA patches for other regional / international Lambretta Club patches… if you’e up for it, let me know and I’ll put you in touch!


Lambretta Club South Africa

Lambretta Club South AfricaI’m delighted to announce the formation of a new national Lambretta Club… you’ve guessed it, in South Africa. Check out their Facebook page here, I’m sure they’s be chuffed with any likes and shares they get. I’ve already featured one of their outings on the blog, here. If you’re interested in joining, or just want to find out more, leave them a message on the page, or email Andy. Nice badge.

I’ve updated the Links page, that make 35 Countries with Lambretta Clubs. Wow. If I’ve missed any, please let me know!

Classic Motorcycle Club of Johannesburg – Scooter Day

My pal Andy in SA sent me these pics of a good turn out of Lammies at the Classic Motorcycle Club of Jo’Burg’s annual Scooter Day. Looks like a good turn out, some nice scoots, enjoying the spring sunshine (lucky buggers) and I’m loving the Lambretta Club of South Africa embroidered patches… 6_zps77b980fd 5_zps690731c5 10_zpsd7f7587b 3_zps468fe2f4 9_zpsca1d8efe 2_zpsa8abfd80 4_zpsa33ea588
