Lambretta Vlog Time…


T’internet’s a funny old thing isn’t it? Always something new to discover. I just stumbled across “Lambretta Vlog Time” a Video Blog about a guy and his Lambrettas. And it was episode 16. Which means I’ve missed the first 15 somehow. Oh well… some catching up to do! One of my less tiresome jobs to do this week! I probably won’t repost all 15 on here… but I will post the best, and hopefully give you a heads up when a new one pops up!

This one focuses on a nicely restored GP which is nearly finished, and looks like will be up for sale soon. Check out the rest of the vids for yourself on digger9million’s YouTube Channel, here.

The names Bug. Bond Bug.

Bond Bug Front 3/4I came across this absolutely stunning, fully restored 1972 Bond Bug on eBay Here. I’ve written about these iconic little vehicles before… (follow the link in the Quasar post!). In the seventies they looked straight from the future …and they still look like they are from some “Space 1999” alternative future (I know that 1999 is in the past, but you get my point!). I showed this post to my nine year old son and he said “Cool! Why don’t they make cars like that today?” Good question!

I honestly don’t think I’ve stumbled across anything on eBay that I’ve immediately wanted so much… Lambrettas included! A snip at a quid under £13k. I’m buying a lottery ticket on the off chance.Bond Bug Three-wheeler BondBug-2 BondBug-3 BondBug-4 Bond Bug InteriorHere’s the eBay link again.

EuroLambretta 2015 Ebensee Promotional Video

So, with EuroLambretta 2014 in Davos done and dusted, and by all reports, (more to come on this!) a good time had by all, I thought it would be a good chance to repost the EuroLambretta 2015 official video I posted back in April. Here’s the version with English Subtitles.

Pinterested in Lambrettas?

Nice video on YouTube, posted by Pintrest on how creating a Pintrest board of images you like can inspire you. Once you’ve watched the video, you can follow Brandon’s board here, (and follow my Lambretta one if you like). Then, if you like what you see, why not create your own?

Don’t try this at home

But then a again… you wouldn’t… but if you were stuck at the side of the road with a hole in your piston and had to get home, and there’s a handy dumpster nearby…

This one gets bodge of the year (so far). If you know a better one, send me a link.
10/10 for ingenuity!

 

A Class send off for a Class act

Anybody who attended a scooter rally in the 80’s or 90’s will know the name Tony Class. A larger than life character who loved the scene, the music and the scooters, Tony was one of the few who kept the scene going through difficult times. He sadly lost his battle with illness last month. Scootering magazine has written a piece here.

My condolences to his family and many friends.

These videos are worth a watch too.

RIP Tony.
