Here’s Jimmy from Quadrophenia as illustrated by the very talented UK artist Jonathan Edwards. You can own this image as a signed and numbered very limited edition print. (There are only 25 being produced.) It comes mailed flat on A3 archival quality matte paper. For us Yanks, that means it measures approximately 16.5 x 11.7 in. Best news of all? It’s only Â£25 which I think is a steal.
This is the first respectable looking site I’ve come across that features the pop can scooters. (And here’s some kismet – they’re located in Brighton!) They’re handmade out of recycled cans and have movable steering, rotating wheels and even a working kickstand. You can choose from Coke, Pepsi, Heineken, Tiger Beer, Schwepps Tonic or Schwepps Soda. They measure approximately 18cm x 11cm x 9cm or approximately 7″ X 4.3″ X 3.5″. They cost Â£9.95 each and come in a gift box made from 100% recycled materials. The site does note that these are not meant to be children’s toys.
Get 1000 pieces of retro scooter goodness! This is actually two puzzles made by those clever folks at Ravensburger. The price is around $28. You get both the inside and outside of a very cool looking coffee bar that I really, really hope actually existed. Sorry, no riots in this version of Brighton. But there are espressos and Lammys.
BTW, I had a “milkshake” in Brighton during an Isle of Wight rally and it was disgusting! It was just some fizzy water and some barely dissolved flavor powder. No milk. And certainly no ice cream. What is up with that?
Here’s a wonderful treasure trove of scooter charms and jewelry.

Here’s call out to my friend Lin in Brighton, proprietess of Soul Jewellery.co.uk.
(Hi Lin! It’s Tracy from Portland!)
Here’s an adorably detailed little Vespa silver plated charm from Brighton. It measures 3/4″ long and 1/2″ tall. It snaps onto charm bracelets or necklaces and has a Swarovski Crystal headlight and possibly taillight. It’s suggested retail is $15. For store location info, visit the Brighton site:
