Well got my photoshoot done of a fantastic TV175 series 2 owned by kirk Wattis. Would you believe it snowing at Easter before we started then bright sunshine at the end. Keep one eye on Classic Scooterist for a full view of one truely authentic original machine. I must also credit many of my friends and fellow scooterists for being proper HARDCORE ! and riding to Scarborough national scooter rally today, bitter cold and loads showed true grit to do the ride on their scooters
All ready for the Bank Holiday weekend , bit cold but no worries everyone will enjoy the east coast spi
Hot on the heels of his brother Steve Conneely (99) chases down Bert Conneely (51) on the Mallory Park Circuit last Thurs . A bitter cold day in March is not the usual start to the BSSO calendar race season, it's much warmer. With Croft race circuit in the North East being the first round on 6/7th April lets hope the weather picks up for the bumpy Northern track .
All change for the latest issue of Classic Scooterist magazine, more pages with expanded features on some classic scooters on the scene. One I'm proud to say I provided was Roger Newborough's LD 150 immaculate paintwork and always ridden not hidden. The LCGB agm photo gallery of the winnners in the best supporting members championship 2012, with also some news on the race circuits ahead of the practice day this coming Thurs at the Mallory Park track for the BSSO racers.So nip out to your local newspaper shop who sells it and support scooterists across the scene who keep the original way of life going with a passion.
Just editing three photoshoots , the GS160 , Moto Rumi and the LML . Hopefully all three will get some great viewing when published in Classic Scooterist .
Well while on my 300 mile round journey to Blackpool and back I was asked to test and review a new billet gear cable linkage produced by JB Fabs from Heckington , Lincolnshire. I fitted the very light but incredibly strong alloy item with a stainless pivot pin on the friday before the journey across the Yorkshire moors via Hull to meet up with some mates from the Hull Drifters SC.
The position of the base plate was perfect and when placing the gear trunions in their fittings no movement was noticed . It was easy to place the cables through the holes in the trunions, and although the first hundred or so miles I had to re-adjust slipping cables this was due to the older trunions being not good enough to hold the cables correctlly. At Blackpool I fitted new trunions with alen grub screws which held the cables well, on the return journey the gearing on the GP200 was perfect . On inspection after the trip the linkage had no visiable wear or movement , superb and with maybe a gear adjuster block and gear tie bar in the same material these new products would more than match any stainless item on sale for Lambretta's at the moment in appearance . Please checkout JB's website for other products he is developing at this time or contact him direct http://www.jb-fab.com/contact.html .
Well the Pre-season warmer rally The VFM Great Western at Blackpool was well attended . Riding over saturday morning with the Hull Drifters so we could get there in time for a look at the custom show and a wonder around the parts fair . Some different scooters on display and a choice of stalls was pretty good although it wasn't a National rally. Decided to take a look around the town at night but we all wasn't that impressed with Las vegas of the North West , shame really as many venue's throughout the year make the most of the custom and try to provide something for the extra visitors . Only one bar soul suite was available and it was packed, Will always try these different venues but not sure I'll bother going out in Blackpool next time , not unless I remember to pack my boy wonder outfit he
