VVC JOURNAL - Issue No.74


Hot off the press is the latest edition (and my first as new editor) of the VVC JOURNAL; the Veteran Vespa Club's quarterly magazine.

Included are a couple of very nice GS150s - one with a colourful backstory and soon to be making an appearance at this year's upcoming World Vespa Days in Belfast. Without giving too much away, we hear from overseas club members and what they are getting up to on their vespas, a tech feature, and refreshed club shop page amongst other things... not forgetting an emphasis on great photography of course. All in all, a nice little package for all you classic vespa fans!

The VVC JOURNAL is for its members and if you'd like a copy you'll need to subscribe and become a member; entitling you to four issues a year as well as access to the VVC Facebook page and members section of the website. Additionally, the club is always keen to see new faces at the club's three annual members events - 2018's are Stratford Upon Avon (May), County Wicklow, Ireland (June) and Norfolk (September).

Solo annual membership to the VVC starts at £15.00 and you can subscribe via the club's website here

Was struck by the badge's gold script highlighted by the workshop strip lights, seen on a recent trip to London's Retrospective Scooters - more known for their work on Vespas but they work on Lambrettas too and this Series 1 Li125 was a lovely example..

Beautiful, atmospheric shot taken by Atif Manzoor in Pakistan - makes you wonder where the finished scooter will end up... anyhow lovely photograph!

Thanks for sharing Atif - appreciate it ; )


SLUK - JB Tuning Series 1 custom

Enjoyed reading about this brutal but beautiful Series 1 Lambretta built by JB Tuning, fitted with one of the UK's first CasaCase engines..

Read all about it in Iggy's ScooterLabUK report, plus photos and on board vid here

Nice shot taken by Ryan Kasak  - click image to view large. I know a lot more about Vespa models but would hazard a guess at this early Lambretta being a Model C - feel free to put me right though by all means..

Thanks for sharing Ryan ; )

Vespa 400

Vespa 400

Nice shot of this Vespa 400 taken by Stéphane Hébert at the 2018 Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique and piloted by 1981 French Rally Champion Bruno Saby 

Merci for sharing Stéphane ; )

Check out the rest of Stéphane's Monte-Carlo album here and more Vespa 400 shots he took here


On a similar vein, I really like the work of Antoine Dellenbach, see his photos from the 2018 Legend Boucles Bastogne event here



 A lovely Vespa 50 Special seen recently on a visit to Retrospective Scooters in London. Largely original; having had a light 'blow over'. I like to use my scooter and restrict myself to having just one and getting loads of use out of it but this could easily tempt me to break that rule..

Currently for sale at Retrospective and am surprised it's not already gone - love that 'brick red' colour.
