Roman Rozzers Ride

rome_police_lam-1Another interesting scooter spotted on the popular online auction site… Well, I think it’s interesting. It’s an ex-Rome Municipal Police Scooter, complete with original motif. A little different from the standard  LI’s. And it’s a runner. Unfortunately, I don’t think it comes with the copper’s hat.

UPDATE: Luigi has got in touch from Italy pointing out that the coat of arms isn’t from Rome at all, but the city of Acqui Terme, in the province of Alessandria, which is in the Northern region of Piedmont. Thanks Luigi!

Sidepanels on eBay

s2-olympicscisepanels-1Spotted these set of S2 sidepanels on eBay, painted up like the 1960 Rome Olympics scooters (see my post on them here). I don’t think they are off a genuine Rome Olympics scooter, the Lambretta logo is completely wrong for one thing, and the condition is a bit too good, but they’re “a bit of fun” as David Dickinson would say. They’d would look pretty good on the right scooter or even a garage wall… The seller is breaking a complete scoot (which I always think is a shame), so there are other matching bits, including a headset top. Check them out here.
