National Scooter Rally 2014 Jindabyne NSW Australia

The Canberra Swam Scooter Club proudly hosted this years National Scooter Rally with great success in Jindabyne. With gorgeous winding open alpine roads, beautiful scenery,  great tunes provided by Luke Alexander and Andy Jackson, and few good beers to top it all off,  all made for the perfect ingrediants for this  National which was held on Friday 7th to Monday the 10th of March 2014
As in previous years, all types of motor scooters were  welcome – geared or auto, vintage or contemporary, which attracted scooter riders from as far as Western Australia riding over 5000km to attend.

However it was at the Show and Shine that SS Scooter shone, humbly taking out
Best vintage scooter over 150cc,
Best Cusom Scooter and
Best Overall Scooter with Sandy’s Nitros Vespa.
And Scooter Fluer once again  took out Best Vintage 150cc scooter  with her famous Glitz   Vespa built proudly by Quite Mark in our workshop (with custom paintwork by Kyle Smith of Smith Concepts).

Vespa Street Racer with NOS

After 2 years of planning, painting and building Sandy’s (owner and head mechanic at S.S Engineering) Vespa Street Racer is now finally rebuilt and ready to tear up the roads again. However this time she has been finished off with a high reflective virtual titanium paint. With further refinements in breaking, handling, power and esthetics have not only reinforced this Vespa’s pedigree and street-cred as a brutally fast machine but have also reinforced Sandy’s love affair with this gorgeous machine.

Body: Worb 5 drop bars, digital speedo, digital tacho, Billet master cylinder, full hydraulic Billet front disc brake, semi-hydraulic rear disc conversion, front tubeless rim, rear wide tire kit with 130x70x10 tire, rear Bitubo, front BGM damper, STO spring and SIP sport seat.
Engine: ported and blueprinted T5 cases, ported Malossi barrel and piston, RD 350 reed block, V force 4 reed, 28PHBH carb, upgeared primary drive, reinforced MMW clutch, Nitros Oxide System with 6 HP boost in 3rd W.O.T and 4t W.O.T

Fleur’s story

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!
