S.I.P. Classic Vespa parts catalogue

VVC Tring rally - June 2010  by Vespamore !

One of the 35mm film shots S.I.P. Scootershop used in their newly published Classic Vespa parts catalogue; I sent them a CD of scanned film shots, a dozen of which made it into their excellent catalogue which can be previewed here

    S.I.P. Scootershop Classic Vespa parts catalogue

By way of thanks S.I.P. have kindly sent me a couple of copies of the new catalogue plus their SIP ROAD racing exhaust which I can't wait to fit to my Sprint Veloce.

SIP say: "In a very short time, the SIP Road developed into the most wanted touring exhaust system of all. It is also mounted on most of our SIP long-distance Vespas."

To see full spec. on the SIP ROAD racing exhaust click link here

There are times when I'll admit to wishing I was Italian, or at least residing in Italia. This particularly rings true when I see photos like these, sent to me by Antonio Saija of his tour of Sicily 23-30 April, 2012 on his very nice Sprint Veloce. Never mind the food, climate, architecture, countryside, language, design, warm seas etc I'd just love to take off on my Sprint Veloce for some local touring like Antonio.... aah one can only wish!

Thanks to Antonio for sending these beautiful shots - much appreciated ; )

Designing 007: 50 Years of Bond Style

"Mr Bond, you have an annoying habit of staying alive... "


The Barbican marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise, from 1962's Dr No to this year's Skyfall, with a unique exhibition showcasing the inside story of the design and style of the world's most influential and iconic movie brand. 


Saw a poster advertising this exhibition at the Barbican, as I got off the train at Euston this morning. Like most 'boys' I'm a James Bond fan (Sean Connery all the way for me); my fave films being 'Goldfinger' & 'From Russia with Love' (quite like 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' too) - the title songs, cars, watches, furniture, clothes, sets & architecture etc doing it for me from the '60's rather than later decades...

I'll definitely get along to this exhibition which runs from 6th July - 5th September 2012, 11am - 8pm (Thurs until 10pm) To see full details & how to book tickets click here

Apologies for the bad 'Bionic Man' pun; seemed appropriate to go with these great shots of this lovely Spanish 150S re-blogged from SPR ScotaPowa Rumble... Motoculture blog

World Vespa Days fotos from S.I.P. Scootershop

A photo by sipscootershop on Flickr.
I hung out with the S.I.P. boys for a fair chunk of the World Vespa Days event (14th - 18th June) which involved dinner one night, a few drinks, one long sight seeing ride thru central London & a lot of insanely fast riding through the centre of town, late at night in the wee small hours. It was excellent fun; they're great company & ride some very cool classic vespas; in most cases old, orig. paint scoots tuned to within an inch of their sorry lives!!

I took a load of 35mm film shots of the weekend's event which can be seen here

Euro Lambretta Belgium, 2012 by David Hardy

I don't see as much of David Hardy as I'd like to due to lack of time, work & our busy lives keeping us apart but I count him as a friend, advisor, creative talent & all round cool guy. We share passions for photography, riding, scooters, vintage vehicles & great design.....

Dave is the guy behind the excellent Team S Equipe website & ETR (Enjoy the Ride) blog. The Team S Equipe site has just been given a 'new lick of paint' by Dave & looks fantastic; check out the newly designed site & blog when you have some spare time - you'll thank me for it!

Above are some shots taken by Dave of his recent trip to this year's Euro Lambretta in Brugge, Belgium. You can read Dave's personal account of the Euro Jamboree by clicking the link here

Great shot & nice POV (point of view) of this Lambretta Series II Li150 taken by Jimi in Long Beach, California.

Jimi takes some very cool shots; not just scooters, pretty much anything he turns his camera to, like this example here.....
