    The good old bad days of scootering

    Great memories indeed – thats me in pic 40 sitting with my old chopper Hot Pearl Snatch – probably Margate and certainly with a hang over. Did al the rallies in 88 and 89 with Norwich’s Fine City Scooter Club – Rodge, Brody, Reado and the crew – great times for sure.

    The bike is still out there and currently belongs to Terry Vine of the flatlanders [now black] – See here for more info on the bike;

    At 51 I am still scootering [Lambretta’s naturally] – Just finished a scratch built Frame breather and I’m using a [couple of] series 2’s as daily rides…..keep on keeping on!
