I’d be the first to admit I’ve made fun of the craft site Etsy and loved calling it “Regretsy.” But I gotta give them credit. There is a lot of great stuff on there and it keeps getting better. I’ve even ordered from them. So type in “scooter” or “Vespa” or “Lambretta” and see what comes up for you.
We featured this scooter fabric last year and now someone has thankfully gone to the trouble of making it into adorable bedding. But (sigh) it’s not cheap. Prices range from $70.40 (USD) for a cushion to $330 for a Double Quilt Cover or Duvet. And those are sale prices apparently. To see all the sizes available visit this Australian site .
Jeff Bass and his company Scooterpatch.com is ScooterSwag’s sponsor. Recently he went to China and took some photos of unusual scooters and swag. The scooters were primarily in Beijing and the swag were spotted in Dongguan and Guangzhou both in Guangdong Province.
I like the ernest sayings a lot. And I wonder if Marlboro pays the scooterist some advertising dollars?
All apologies to Depeche Mode. Now we’ve featured tikis riding scooters before in the form of a mugbut never actual tiki-tikis. These occasionally pop up on eBay now and then. Any scooter enthusiast who’s also tiki nuts will have to have one. Besides who knows what bad mechanical mojo they may dispel?
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.
