Retrospective Scooters Open Day

1da433e3-9533-4d02-a4ab-a896e0a7b6a3

Beat the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) – Go ELECTRIC!

If you’re in London this weekend, get yourself down to our Retrospective Scooters workshop/showroom in Walthamstow for their open day.  The focus of the day is the forthcoming London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) and how you can get around paying the £12.50 a day that you’ll get charged for riding your nasty dirty old ‘non-compliant’ scooter. One of the options is to convert your classic Lambretta (or Vespa) to an electric one – I featured the kit in a post, here, a little while ago. They’ll have lots of electric scoots charged up and ready to test ride.

On the day there’s;

  • Test ride one of the many electric Vespa’s and Niu scooters.
  • Get advice from the Retrospective Scooters team of experts – ask how to convert your classic Lambretta with a custom conversion kit
  • Freshly cooked food from local stalls
  • Craft beer from a neighbouring brewery
  • Listen to DJs spinning the decks all afternoon

So get yourself down to Unit 1, Lockwood Way, Walthamstow, London E17 5RB from 1pm this Saturday.

While we’re on the subject of Electric Vehicles, rumours are reaching Lambrettista Towers that the new Electric Lambretta Vendetta, (as well as a very exciting sounding 325cc petrol variant) is due to come to market shortly. Stay tuned. When I hear more, you’ll hear more. That’s a promise.

 

 

Rimini Lambretta Centre 20th Anniversary Open Day

RLC-IMAG0679

Just a quick, preliminary post, mainly to say what a great event this was. There was a really good turn out, at least a couple of hundred Lambrettas… and Dean and the gang from the RLC made sure everyone was looked after properly. As I type this a lot of the attendees will be sipping the odd cold beverage or throwing some shapes on the dance floor. Unfortunately, I had to get back to Bologna, as I’ve booked a flight home early doors. Pretty poor planning on my part that. Anyway boys and girls enjoy your evening, and thank you, very much for asking me to come out. If you can’t wait for my words and pictures, check out the event’s Facebook Page, here. Buonanotte!
