Scooter Wallpapers Collection features 1600 x 1200 photos of scooters, mostly high-quality press photos with a white background. The selection is a little strange (no Vespas, lots of Derbi and several defunct brands) and the blog format maybe isn’t the best way to organize the photos, but it’s a neat resource.
Surely you’ve seen the poster, it has graced countless dorm rooms, and hangs in every other Italian restaurant in Chicago. Ruth Orkin’s photo “American Girl in Italy” has been a popular symbol of Italy for decades, but the first thing any scooterist sees is the early Lambretta to the right of the frame. Corriere della […]
Via ScooterDiva‘s Twitter feed: A fan of Modculture.info sent them three great photos of his parents on their Lambretta LDs in the fifties. You see so many celebrity photos, and so many promo photos, but it’s rare to catch the pre-mod scooter era in candid family photography.
More rally photos from Jordan, of the Gasoline Rally in Indianapolis last weekend! The rally included a ride on the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway track!
No rally season is complete without a Mods vs Rockers rally, seems like every city has one now, but Chicago’s (run by Ton-Up Chicago) gets bigger and better every year. I couldn’t make it this time, but Jordan sent a bunch of great photos:
Any time you feel your scooter obsession is way out of control, just be thankful you’re not into Blythe dolls. Or, like our friend Ana, way too into both.

For more than a year, rumors have been circulating about a new 4-stroke version of Genuine Scooter Company’s Stella motorscooter. Genuine confirmed the model a few months ago, but has otherwise been very quiet about the project. This week, Genuine allowed 2strokebuzz a quick look at a “New Stella” prototype (and a ride!) just before […]
Most of us stopped “reading” Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue in about 6th grade, when we finally tracked down some real porn. But there will always be 6th-graders, so SI keeps publishing it, and comically pretending it’s a guide for women shopping for swimwear. Their portfolio now includes athletes’ wives, tennis stars, cheerleaders, bodypainted nudes, Danica […]
I hate the whole idea of trade show models, but on the other hand, you 2strokebuzz readers are sad perverts, so here you go. We could use the hits, and angry comments are better than no comments.
A bit late, but here’s a great collection of Halloween-related scooter images from Spanish site Vespa & Lambretta Culleredo, the only scooter site we know of with a Galician version.
A must-see Vintage Scooter Art & Graphics set on Flickr. Quite a collection! (Thanks, Bob!)
From our spies at Piaggio’s fall dealer meeting: 7916 Dinner meeting features Jay Leno: 45 minutes of stand up, closing with “when Piaggio called me they said, ‘we don’t have much money,’ and I said ‘I’ll do it free, I’m Italian, I want to support an Italian product, I like Italian bikes,’ then I get […]
