    Hi Guys,

    some very early pics of a side project Ive started. The Lambretta TV is a diecast, which will have some modifications to bring it into scale a bit, the rider is in Milliput over a wire armature and is roughed out to get the pose right, so far. Scooter will have some additions to it, mirrors, lights, crash bars and backrest, rider will be in parka, Hush Puppies, Sta - prest and Italian jacket...!!

    I am also taking posession of a diecast 60s Triumph Bonneville, which will also feature a period "rocker" in leather lancer jacket, jeans and big boots!!

    Thanks for looking in(y)

    Brilliant! I was one of the other lot! I always like watching them over August BH trekking down the A34 to the Isle of Wight. Big bikes have changed drastically but the scooter still looks like it ever did.

    I got into scooters when the mod revival came about on the back of Quadrophenia, but its never really left me! As they say, "once a mod, always a mod...!"(y)

    Only normally comment on Napoleonics but you’ve grabbed my attention with this. Never could afford a scooter but many of my contemporaries had them. Great memories from the ‘60s. Will follow with much interest.

    Like Airkid, I was a rocker, and stayed with bikes of various kinds. Don't forget the fisherman's socks and the white silk scarf !
    And yes, I progressed to Harleys, but finally gave up three years ago, as osteo-arthritis took its toll of my old joints. At least my bikes went to good homes in the "fraternity" I still belong to. ;):D

    Non at all, Jeff, it was all quite amusing really, the so-called rivalry. Mostly cooked up by the press at the time.....mostly !:LOL:

    There were two groups of us in the small town where I grew up, all of us old school friends. The biker group had original classic 60s bikes and dressed the part and us with original 60s scooters. Never any trouble, all drank in the same pub beacause we all knew each another! The only time we had any bother was when we ventured into Stafford, but never in Stoke!!(y)

    Agreed Alan - there was far more aggressive rivalry between the two local football teams' fans. Never owned a H-D but had go on one or two back in the day - impressive torque.

    Thanks to a club mate for donating the Bonnie for my Brighton 1964 project! Eagle eyed bike enthusiasts will notice that it's a fairly modern version, so will also undergo some slight surgery, like the Lammy.... Off to knock up an armature for the rider, now!!(y)
