Welsh Adventure

4 scooters, 3 breakdowns, 1 crash & a hell of a lot of fun… found this video on the Bolt Lodon Facebook Page.

Run… 90’s Scooter run documentary

A cut above the usual documentary about scooters… avoiding most of the clichés, and featuring Scootering magazine’s Sticky (whatever happened to him?), I don’t know how I missed this Channel 4 documentary ‘back in the day’ but I’ve got absolutely no recollection of seeing this before. Just watch it, it’s brilliant.

Supertune Style

Supertune 1Nice 1967 125 Special with a Supertune paintjob for sale.

Specs look pretty good too… It’s had a complete rebuild by Scootopia in 2009 – around 600 genuine dry miles since then.

“Finished in Rover Metallic British Racing Green / Hawthorn White in Supertune Style. Working Smiths 120mph Speedo Stage 4 SIL 200 (Blank casing) LI150 Gearbox, AF Crank, 30mm Delly PHBH with Ram Air Filter, Brand New AF Clubman (New Style) – only done a couple of miles since fitting last year & sounds lovely. Original Innocenti Front Disc Brake  Taffspeed Billet Ally Rear Shock 
Scootopia Cut Back Ancilloti Seat (The waffle side type).

Lovely condition, has always been stored in a dry garage – has barely had any use over the last couple of years and has become an expensive ornament – would much rather it went to someone who’s going to make use of it.”

Supertune 2Just my cup of tea, to be honest, wish I had a few spare quid, I’d snap it up.

It’s for sale, in Cardiff, for £3,900. Which sounds about right to me.
