Mike Karslake on Pepple Mill

A bit of nostalgia for you… whenever I was off school back in the ’80’s…there wasn’t much telly on… I remember stuff like Crown Court and General Hospital… and then, at lunchtime, there was always Pebble Mill. Here’s an episode from the 80’s featuring Lambretta legend Mike Karslake, and some of his extensive Lambretta collection, including his Lambretta based fire engine and Wolfie’s Lambretta from Citizen Smith! He makes quite an entry on a Series 2 sidecar combination!

One of those “You know who’s daughter she is… ” questions, you don’t know you know, until someone asks you. Well, they fill in all the details over at the excellent Scooternova blog. Check it out for the full story and some great pics. And find out if Jo still owns a Lammie today…
