Retrospective Scooters

Retrospective Scooters from David Hardy on Vimeo.

"A short teaser for a 120 page book by Photographer Paul Hart. Based around Retrospective Scooters, London."

I rode my scoot over to meet up with Dave Hardy yesterday in my lunch hour; Dave shot this short film on his iphone using a Super 8 app. This is a wee reminder for those of you interested in the upcoming Retrospective Scooters book that it's not that far off now. Am just awaiting the final translations (book will be printed in Italian & German as well as English), when I get these back & have checked over final layout it will be ready to go off to the printer... not too long now I hope.

I couldn't have one of these on my vespa - I have my 'street cred' to consider, you can just imagine what your average pimply faced teenager would make of this while pulling up alongside you on his de-restricted twist n' go ped!

Interesting though these old period accessories, particularly with the built-in wiper to clear the screen...

Espresso Bar Mozzino

                               click fotos to view large

Called in to Espresso Bar Mozzino during my lunch hour today, based at the Carnaby Street end of  Broadwick Street, Soho. Opened six months ago, it's a nice little cafe bar run by a Vespa enthusiast complete with a Messerschmitt GS150 parked up in the window as you enter. Among the nice touches were the framed, period Piaggio calendar pages which had seen better days.

I just had coffee but there looked to be a decent selection of panini, cakes, pastries etc. If you happen to be in Soho, check them out...
