Haynes just released their Lambretta Repair Manual covering the series I, II, and III models from 1958 – 2000 including Servata and obviously SIL. The book comes in a nice hardcover with some color and plenty of black and white photos chronicling a complete tear down and rebuild. Who will be the first to put […]
Congratulations to Patrick “duo” Harris of Minneapolis for winning the 2012/13 Cold Weather Challenge! It was a close battle for second and third with only the distance of the ride separating the two. Here are the winners: First Place – Patrick “duo” Harris of Minneapolis, MN with a 13.6 mile ride at -6F on his […]
With less than a month to go will anybody be able to beat Patrick of Minneapolis with his -10º entry? Be sure to check out entrants photos over on scoot.net
There has been no shortage of scooter shops closing over the past five years or so with most of them being fly-by-night shops trying to make a quick buck selling inferior imported bikes or ones that got caught up in Vespa Boutique mania, so it’s a real bummer to see one of the good shops […]

The Challenge will run from December 1st, 2012 to February 28th, 2013. Prizes will be awarded to […]
Minnesota House Bill 2685 includes a section about who is allowed to stop traffic for large motorcycle rides. We’ve all been on big rides where there are blockers stopping traffic along the way so that the group can stay together, and I’m always amazed there aren’t more instances of road rage and/or tickets being handed […]
So you were following the Cannonball and got to thinking that, though fun, it wouldn’t be enough of a challenge for you. Well here is your chance to climb the Himalayas with no GPS, no support truck, and no rules! The Wobbly Wheels Rally sounds pretty incredible for the incredibly crazy. Looking forward to hearing […]
Well probably not anything, since each rider has to start and finish each day at a designated location and I have a feeling that neither Dom Deluise or Sammy Davis Jr. are participating this year. The 2012 Cannonball kicked off on Sunday at Vespa Savannah and will take 50 riders from the East to the […]
We often have to make a big decision on whether or not to go with the ethanol gas offered at the pumps. Most of us aren’t too keen on the idea after hearing many warnings about how the ethanol will eat through your seals and gaskets on our vintage bikes and in many parts of […]
It seems that most of the vintage photographs of scootering tend to be from the UK or elsewhere in Europe, rarely do you find classic photos of large groups of scooterists from here in the states. These spectacular photos are from some sort of protest taking place in San Francisco in the early 60’s. It’s […]
Finally something worth lobbying about! Colorado Springs is hosting the 2012 Lambretta Jamboree and somehow convinced the city council to declare June 30th Lambretta Day in Colorado Springs. Good work Adam.
