Pilo Reborn

Here are some photographs of Pilo before her restoration. She was in a really sorry state, Christian stripped her right down and packed all the salvageable parts into boxes. After years of sad neglect there was a lot of work involved in restoring her.

This is Christian's Pilo, so called because at the beginning she was a 'pile of s...'
Look at her now, she looks beautiful and runs like a dream. 

Another great Lambretta from the Scooter Surgery stable.

Bobby Moore goes home

The 'Bobby Moore' themed scooter came in for the fitting of a TS1, Cyclone 5 speed gear box, RB Boyson two stage reeds, Casa Variotronic ignition, BGM Cylinder head, Franspeed Supertune exhaust, 35mm mikuni carbs and a full set of BGM shocks. Now 'Bobby Moore' has been put on the van to be reunited with owner Richard.

Result: Richard the proud owner with an easy to drive   Lambretta - that's got a lot of low down grunt.

Scootering in London is free.. but for how long?

Until now, we’ve taken riding through central London on our Lambretta’s for granted… we don’t have to think about congestion charge do we? But if Boris Johnson and his cronies have their way ALL motorcycles may have to pay in the future and vintage/classic machines may be banned entirely!  If you are in London or ever want to ride your scooter in the capital? Read on.

This morning we received an email from our friend Andy telling us about the possibility of motorcycles being charged congestion charge. Motorcyclist already have to pay to park in much of central London.

Andy tells us:
"You should go on the TFL website and fill in this survey. Oppose the proposed charge for motorcycles entering the zone. This is just an earner for Boris under the guise of "emissions’" and means riders would to have to pay £12.50 per day and older bikes could be prevented from entering central London completely?!"

TfL invites you to provide views on all the proposals by completing this online questionnaire at: 

We have added our opposition and are asking all our customers at Scooter Surgery to follow our lead. There is a box for comments - so please state exactly why you oppose this charge (keep it clean!).

Thank you 
Patrick and Maude

John's LI Series 1 & 3

John's two Lambretta's look beautiful and are painted to a very high standard. They've been at Scooter Surgery for some attention to their engines - it's no good having a scooter with the looks, if they don't perform equally well!
