Team S Equipe - Gadabout

Dave Hardy from Team S Equipe invited me along to the inaugural 'Gadbout', basically an excuse for a get together of some very tasty, cool Lambrettas, mostly done up in a classic '60s racer style - just how I like them... Also present was a beautiful 'Norvin' motorcycle - a hybrid Norton/Vincent.

The loose plan was to meet up at Lewis Leathers on Whitfield Street, London W1 & after a chat & coffee head off to the Ace Cafe on the North Circular Road. I was working, so called in briefly at Lewis Leathers for a gander & to take some film shots.

I occasionally buy old expired film stock & had one of these films loaded in my Olympus OM-2N; it felt a bit stiff when winding on but I assumed it was okay. After working my way through the 36 exp film, I was excited about getting the shots back but disaster... the resulting prints were all tinged purple with unsightly spots appearing on most of the images. I was gutted as it's rare to get such a decent gathering of superb lambrettas together in one place; all the expired films I've used previously have been fine up until now.

The 'best' shots I took that came out are shown below; not what I would have liked by any means but it gives you an idea...
