As a classic scooter enthusiast, I can’t help but thinking that Piaggio have really missed out by not capitalising on their rich back catalogue of timeless Vespa designs. Retro scooters sell by the container load – if it looks faintly like a 1960s classic but has modern running gear and somewhere to plug your hair […]
Owners of the latest Vespa GTS models will be pleased to know that Scorpion now have an aftermarket ‘slip-on’ exhaust available for the catalysed Euro 5 (and Euro 4) models. This means swapping from a standard exhaust to a Scorpion is literally a five-minute job. Great news for the less mechanically minded – […]
An old man getting duffed-up by the pocket rockets In part one we looked at why a single-sided Lambretta fork conversion could be a better option, in this part, we ride the scooter to find out if it is. Is a mono-fork any better? In trying to find the answer to this […]
Is converting Lambrettas to a single fork leg an act of heresy or engineering genius?

When you’re officially one of the fastest men to ever ride a full-bodied Lambretta up a sprint track there’s not much chance you’ll just pootle around town on a standard GP. We nipped up to sunny Scunthorpe to find out what 127mph sprinter, Eric Cope chooses as his road bike. Then we nicked his […]
A scooter feature on SLUK? It’s been a long time since we’ve carried any custom scooter features on SLUK. In the eyes of many custom builders there’s a prestige to paper – particularly a magazine cover – that can’t be rivalled and I understand that. Equally, there are scooters that offer a […]
