Retrospective Scooters & London Scooter Bodyshop grand opening

As mentioned on here some time back, my fave classic scooter dealer Retrospective Scooters & subject of my book has moved to larger premises from Hornsey, to nearby Wood Green in North London.

Niall McCart, Retrospective's owner has teamed up with his long standing preferred sprayer, David Maher of London Scooter Bodyshop with both businesses now being housed in the same, much increased workshops and showroom.

I am pushing to get the new, second edition of the RETROSPECTIVE SCOOTERS book completed in time for launch at this event on 26th April. Fingers crossed these will be on sale on the day. I'll be there & will sign your copy if you like...

Sevilla_The blue Vespa by coca_lemon13

Really like this shot by Coca Lemon taken in Seville, ES. Lovely contrast with the metallic blue 150S against the black & coral red wall ...

El Maestro

Great 1950s shot (I think), seen via The Scooterist's FB page of Argentinian, Juan Manuel Fangio, surrounded by fans on vespas. Many consider Fangio was the best racing driver the world has seen ...
