  1. Which Speedfight is that?
  2. I like that shape ST, great engine and more bonkers styling than the modern one. And yeah, Smarts are much more fun than people imagine.
  3. That lorry horse post has killed me. I’m not sure if I dare look at it again.
  4. I like those ‘modernised’ Maxis, with their glitzy paint colours and up to date badging. 41 years old and was way out of date when new. Lovely 👍🏻
  5. Had a pilgrimage on Kefalonia today. When I came here in 1988, I scrawled my name on the wall in a ruined prison within the confines of a Venetian castle on a peninsula called Assos: I went back there today to see if I could locate the writing. I found it in an old guardhouse: If you look carefully you can hopefully see ‘ADAM 88’: I performed a minor restoration: Simple thing but I was well chuffed to find it. Also on the way the road passes above Myrtos Bay, which is the most photographed beach in the world. It looks fucking incredible, but is in fact shit - gravel / shale surface with a rough and aggressive sea: But what’s this in the bay?: A massive fuck-off super yacht. I looked it up and it is called ‘A’, belongs to a Russian billionaire and cost the best part of half a billion quid. 143 metres long and the masts are 100 metres tall: It is a sinister looking beast in that grey tone.

    Watching that, it was way ahead of its time.
  7. Spent the entire day on this: I’m in Kefalonia. Used to come regular and my folks lived here for ten years. First time back in 12 years. I’m exhausted as quads demand 100% attention 100% of the time. They are constantly trying to chuck you off. Great fun though. I left at 10:30 and got back to my room at 6:30. Got the machine until next Saturday. I have been to most places here more than once but I saw a little cove online in the north east of the island, so went there. On the latter part of the journey, I didn’t see a car or human being for 35 minutes. Anyway, here’s the cove, with the tiny village that was destroyed and abandoned in the 1953 earthquake: IMG_1396.MOV Ithaca in the background: IMG_1396.MOV

    Vespa 50 Special

    Thanks man 👍🏻 As far as the gearing goes, I don’t know the ratios but it’s equivalent to a 90SS (I had a workshop do the rebuild). Like your PK my Special should be good for 50-55, which is plenty on potholed roads with 1970s suspension and brakes! I wouldn’t have bothered as like you say, the speed is less important than the looks! But mine was woefully slow up the hills, I mean awful - down to 15 fighting between second and third. It was tiring and unsafe, hence the 102 kit etc. It spins round to 40 comfortably (still running in).

    Chrome engine cover added as I dropped the scooter and bollocksed the old one. No other damage. Had to nurse the metal a bit to make it fit.
