Connie and Lulu

Royal Manor Scooterist

Name: Mike Jolliffe

Location: Portland, Dorset.

Small Frame: 1962 Douglas Vespa Sportique 150, (as seen on www.scooterhelp.com ). Also my new PX Disc.

Douglas: All original. Thinking about getting it painted in its original Olde English White and Eggshell blue!!!

PX: Aiming to clock some more K's attending Rallies, get some body graphics sorted.

 


Vespa

Name: Sean Duggan

Club: Celtic Soul Scooter Club, Limerick, Ireland

 
cry for dawn

Name: Tom Hargreaves

Club: Keighley Scooter Club, West Yorkshire.

Scooter's Name: "Cry for Dawn". Scooter Model: PX200

Inspiration: American comic book artist Joseph Micheal Linsner who created Dawn, the Goddess of birth and rebirth. The comics are really deep, but fun to read, anyone wanting to find out more could go to www.linsner.com. Paintwork: David Dickinson in Bridlington. I told him which pictures to do and where to put them, and he came up with the finished product.

Engine: The frame is a PX200 but the engine is a T5 with a 177 Mallossi kit. The reason for that is, I have a wide wheel kit on it and I didn't want to cut a new P2 engine up for it.

Frame Modifications: Forks twisted and extended by 2".

Specialised Parts: The seat was done by Smartrrrs in York.

Chrome: Quality Chrome in Hull. ( I'm still waiting for some bits of
chrome so thats not finished yet).

Awards: Best Custom Vespa, 2004 Bridlington National Scooter Rally Custom Show. First of many I hope.
