From the Scooter Surgery stable

Here again is Chris's 'Little Flirt' my 'Patsy' and Patrick's 'Little Lui.' Patrick and I have currently swopped scooters because, since breaking my ankle I find Patsy too heavy. I felt so happy and proud to be riding with Chris on Little Flirt, a TS1, Patrick on Patsy, kitted with the Casa 210, with myself on Little Lui; a magical little scooter kitted with a Casa 75 as we rode through Central London yesterday for Remembrance Sunday. All three scooters come from the Scooter Surgery stable.  Should anyone have captured the three girls running through town please send me the pictures.

This is Baby, a Lambretta 48. 
Allthough she was restored to showroom condition Roger (her owner) had no idea what the internals of the engine were like. She was part of a museum collection and had not been run. Roger has had a few challenges, but as you can see, he rides her around his home town.


I am being a bit audacious and calling this little miracle 'Westaway', the name of her restorer and owner. She looks like a Westaway as in: "Go West, young mango West. There is health in the country, and room away from our crowds of idlers and imbeciles" (Horace Greeley) - in this case, room enough to restore an old Lambretta!
