This GS 160 MK 1 is now a world traveller, and in 50 years she is has done a full circle of the globe.
She is was originally imported from the USA (non-battery model GS160)
and brought to Sandy at S.S Scooter in need of a full restoration a year ago.
But now she is heading back with her owner “Obie” to the UK to reside with his formidable collection of Lambretta’s.
Unfortunately, the hard-core Lambretta collector will not have time to be ribbed by his Lambretta riding mates in Oz
about his latest and gorgeous addition to his vintage stable. But I am sure I know a few boys in Blighty that will.
Farewell Graham O’brien you will be sorely missed. Safe travels and GodSpeed.
From a Bondi Beach Bather to PX Street Burner.
Living it’s entire life by Bondi Beach without wearing any protection, this PX was suffering from an extreme case of cancer. With a rusted through frame it was time for me
to overhaul and save this Bondi Beach Bather.
The first job was weld in a new floor to re- strengthen this Vespa’s monocoque chassis .
Once the new floor was painstakingly welded into position, it was time to bring to fruition the tuning and customising concepts the customer dreamed of; from an enormous rear wide tyre conversion, to the 215 cc cylinder which was given the SS treatment flowing through a the stainless expansion pipe hanging off to the left, right down to the subtle CNC calliper to help her stop, are to name a few.
With a luscious coat of gun metal grey, this Vespa has been reborn; and she won’t be lazily sitting around Bondi Beach anymore, as she will be leaving our shores to burn up the winding roads of New Zealand.
With two of the rarest and coolest Vespa’s made in the SS Scooter workshop, the opportunity to photograph them could not be missed. With Sandy’s unmolested and unrestored SS90, sitting next to Tony Dunham’s beautiful and meticulously restored SS90 made for a rare and beautiful sight on a steamy Sydney summers day.
With Team GS completing all tasks and navigating the 1000km to the finsh line in Victor Harbour in South Australia, we cant wait for next year’s Mille in Victoria!

The longest ridden to Fremantle is our own Fleur (formerly of the Canberra Swarm). After a service, clutch change and the installation of a very trick intercom system on her trusty PX 200 at S.S Scooter Engineering, she traveled from Sydney to Canberra to rendezvous with her friends Chris and Nikki, to tackle the unrelenting Nullarbor plains.
During her 13 day ride, she encoured many unique Australian characters including a man walking around Australia in a Storm Trooper uniform raising money for the Starlight Foundation (http://www.everydayhero.com.au/troopertrek), and at night she continued to train for the Melbourne marathon she was running the week after.
Along the way, a tire change was all that was needed for her to conquer the rugged Australian landscape and assert herself as a true Australian scooter legend by covering more than 5200km on her voyage. Well done Fleur James!
After many years of passionate Lambretta restorations, Graham O’Brien not only won his category at the National Classic Scooter Rally in Fremantle, but he took out top honours at the Show and Shine event which had over 180 entrants. The best overall scooter at the rally was overwhelmingly awarded to his Lambretta TV175 series one. S.S. Scooter Engineering were as proud as Obie, as we spent hundreds of hours meticulously restoring her to a world class standard.
From the day the it docked in Fremantle, the 1958 Lambretta roared into action with just one kick of the spring-tensioned kick starter. She did not miss a beat all weekend even on the more gruelling rides through the beautiful Western Australian hillsides and great Aussie heat.
One of the worlds most rare, and in our opinion, most beautiful scooters, was not only doing the 100km round trips effortlessly but was leaving some scooters behind in a cloud of 6% 2 stroke mist.
But she was not alone in Lambretta TV1 glory. Ron from Casa Lambretta also brought in not only one but two running unrestored TV1s. A sight that may never be seen again in my lifetime were three TV1s running side by side, and it marked a great moment in Australian scootering history.
