Autumn DS

Untitled, a photo by Vespamore ! on Flickr.
Came out of Euston Station the other day onto Upper Gower Street & was passed by this Taupe coloured DS. Fortunately it got held on the lights before turning left on to Euston Road. Ran up to the lights & was able to take this.

Shot with my Olympus OM10 on Fuji Superia film (1600ASA for extra grain).

Rusteration


Nice old '50s Vespa; probably wouldn't need that much doing to it to bring it back to life... rather that than another pristine resto (in my opinion).

Untitled, a photo by Vespamore ! on Flickr.

Taken by me at look mum no hands! in Clerkenwell - a cool, chilled out cafe bar/hangout for cyclists (& non-cyclists), selling great food, coffee & beer if you want one. Shot with my Olympus OM10 on 35mm Kodak Portra film - Autumn 2010. Part of a series of shots taken for Retrospective Cycles see more here http://www.flickr.com/photos/gs3vespa/sets/72157625389333187/



How lmnh describe themselves...

"We like riding our bikes and drinking coffee. We had an idea about combining stuff we like to make something special. We found a great space in a great location, cleaned it up and called it 'look mum no hands!'

We show films and cycle sport on our big projector screen. We have a workshop and two great mechanics who fix bikes. We have people who are really into making good food and coffee. We sell BEER! "


1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint

Text by Scurvy Knaves - "Last summer during the Allure of the Automobile exhibition, Portland Art Museum helped organize a "side-show" that was held on the weekends. It was called Cars in the Park. The day of Italian Cars was probably the best. There were many beautiful cars on display that day, some truly rare and amazing, not to mention all those arrogant Ferraris. But in the end Alfas were my favorites."

SSK is perhaps Sweden's smallest local scooter club, Eskilstuna Scooters has been renamed to Blacksmith Scooters in honour of the town's history as a blacksmith city.

Club activities comprise of various items including ride outs, mekkvällar and organizing the now-annual meeting Eskilsphenia & visiting MHRF's veteran nights in Eskilstuna, which takes place once a week during the summer. Some members are very active and go on most scooter events held in Sweden.

If you're based in Sweden & ride classic scooters or are visiting the country then get in touch. Ronnie Gavelin from the club is also a very talented photographer as you can see by the shot above; you can read more of what Ronnie gets up to by checking out his blog here http://www.lets-make-this-precious.blogspot.com

Artie Bell Cup - Ulster Vespa Club Rally 1956

Artie Bell Cup - Ulster Vespa Club Rally 1956 by GaelicKiwi

Nigel Kelso (pictured) writes:

The cup was awarded to the winner of a 3 day rally, (not sure whether they were 3 consecutive days, or over a couple of weekends),which included a mystery tour or treasure hunt in which you had to follow minimal directions and find the answers to given questions, an economy run (refer the photo outside club rooms of petrol tank being sealed), and some events carried out on a disused airstrip, the location of which I have no idea. These included an obstacle course (slalom type of thing not involving speed but rather accuracy), the longest time to cover a short distance without feet touching the ground or falling off or stopping event, and a brief race over about a quarter mile in a straight line! This was the highlight of the whole rally for me (and I think one, Nickie Leonard) and neither of us was going to be the first to apply the brakes at the finish which was about 30 yards before some gorse bushes! So there was some blue smoke and fish-tailing at the end! I believe I won by a whisker. Poor motors! it was just full throttle all the way and we must have reached the break-neck speed of about 45mph. I think Nickie and I were the only two mad enough to participate in that event. This rally would have taken place in the summer of 1956 and I see that I have the date of the start of the economy run as 4 June 1956. I also found the newspaper caption that was with that photo which said:


"Miss Moyra Tougher watches Mr. J Irving, vice-captain of the Vespa Club of Britain, Ulster Branch No. 55, seal her tank before starting out on the final of three rallies for the Artie Bell Cup. On the right, Cecil Kerr and Nigel Kelso study the 60 mile route."

me and my dear
