4 scooters, 3 breakdowns, 1 crash & a hell of a lot of fun… found this video on the Bolt Lodon Facebook Page.
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.
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.”
It’s for sale, in Cardiff, for £3,900. Which sounds about right to me.

Serious well done for anyone that rode there. And bear in mind some countries are smaller than others, and some are further away… big respect for the Yanks and the Aussies, and Chris from South Africa.
