1.Lambretta Concessionaires - The Complete Story 1951 to 1971
ORDER ADVANCE COPY - DUE 12TH APRIL FOR PUBLICATION - Lambretta Concessionaires - The Complete Story 1951 to 1971 by Stuart Owen - In 1947 Ferdinando Innocenti introduced the Lambretta motor scooter to the Italian nation. With its economical engine and affordable price it soon to become a huge success as travel across the country’s cities and towns was revolutionised. By 1949 it had landed on British soil, albeit to a rather mixed reception. Despite several attempts to persuade the British public, they just couldn’t warm to the Lambretta like they did with the motorcycle. Undaunted by its failure to take off, a father and son lead business still believed the Lambretta had a future. They took a risk by buying several hundred machines while at the same time securing the concession in to Britain and they never looked back. Formed in 1951, Lambretta Concessionaires set about mobilising the British population with their humble product. Through clever marketing and exemplary after-sales care the nation fell in love with the Lambretta. By the end of the decade it had become the biggest selling two-wheeled vehicle the country had ever seen. During the 1960s the company continued to lead the way within the industry, despite people’s attitudes changing towards the motor car as the desired choice of travel. Still continuing to buck the falling sales trend as a new decade approached it was cruelly taken away from them as the Lambretta unexpectedly ceased production. Over a twenty year period Lambretta Concessionaires undoubtedly changed the lives of the British public for the better. This is their story.

He became involved in Scooter and Microcar Clubs and took part in many local and national sporting events gaining a collection of awards and trophies.

Enrico's Vespa - A journey through Europe
“Enrico’s Vespa” is an exciting book for children and a collector’s piece for all parents.Painted by Piaggio Advertisement-Illustrator of the 50's and 60's. With 60 pages, in full colour. Size 30cm x 30cm. Hardcover - Extras including a board game and a cut-out sheet at the end of the book.  English & French (two languages in one edition)   If Piaggio (the Vespa manufacturer) had published a children’s book back in the 50s, it would probably have looked like “Enrico’s Vespa”. Why? Because the prize-winning designer Elena Pongiglione has illustrated this book. She designed most of the official Vespa artwork for Piaggio in the 50s and 60s. Today, deep into the Internet Age and 50 years after the great era of commercial art at Piaggio, this children’s book recaptures the spirit of the legendary Italian scooters. On his father’s Vespa, Enrico sets out on a fantastic tour through Europe. He is joined by his sister Elena, the teddy bear Yo Yo, the cat Minou and the dog Wow Wow. “Enrico’s Vespa” is an exciting book for children and a collector’s piece for all parents. This book also includes a board game and a cut-out sheet for the whole family featuring Enrico and his friends. Prices include P&P.

Frankenstein Scooters to Dracula's Castle
Pre-order now, first 50 copies signed by 'Sticky' - 196 pages - 90 colour pictures - 210mm x 147mm - Soft Back - A scooter travel yarn by Martin 'Sticky' Round'. Available from March 30th 2014 in both paperback and eBook formats - ‘My family don’t do easy. Tracy and I ride vintage scooters: a Maicoletta and a Lambretta respectively, but not standard ones. Ours are unique, radically modified scooters fitted with motorcycle engines. Frankenstein’s monsters, built in a shed. ‘We are riding to Istanbul with our friend Dean on another Lambretta. Doing the trip one-up would be too easy, so his daughter is riding pillion and I’m taking my 11-year old son. ‘Straight to Turkey through Greece would be too easy. Instead we are going via Romania. We’ll stop off at Vlad the Impaler’s house on the way, to see if he can come out to play. I’ll bring a Frisbee…’ *** Sticky is a freelance writer, former editor of Scootering Magazine and best-selling author. This book is more than a travel journal; it’s the insightful out-pouring of a mind that’s been pickled in two-stroke fumes for thirty years. Sex, murder, war, politics and religion – all these are briefly glossed over, before the book moves to more important subjects. How can you cross a continent on a vintage scooter without the wheels falling off; and more importantly, what to do when that happens. Sticky proves that smaller wheels are no hindrance to adventure. In fact they help. Doing this on a motorcycle would be just too easy… Price includes delivery. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Frankenstein-Scooters-to-Draculas-Castle/251978358316742

Complete with unseen photos, rare graphics and authentic diary extracts. This book is intensely personal and a generationally epic, a real life QUADROPHENIA, from s man who was actually there...... - 2nd edition - Soft Back, approx 330 pages, A5 size - RRP 13.99 plus P&P.
