Knowledge: Martin Leech’s 283cc Lambretta Tourer | FEATURE

  A scooter feature on SLUK?   It’s been a long time since we’ve carried any custom scooter features on SLUK.

27bhp PM Tuning Vespa Sei Giorni – Part 1 | CUSTOM

  Pound for pound four stroke tuning is less rewarding than two-stroke tuning. For less than a grand you can bolt a decent kit, exhaust and carb on to a Vespa PX and increase its power by 40% or more. Sadly, power gains aren’t quite so cheap or easy to come by on a modern […]
