Australian Classic Scooter Mille 2015- Go Team GS

With the 2015 Classic Scooter Mille event to be held on Phillip Island Victoria, we at SS Scooter have got Team GS prepped and ready for this year’s gruelling 1000 + km journey up through Victoria’s Alpine passes to Mount Hotham. With rain and colder spring conditions on the for-caste, it’s gonna be an amazing and challenging 25 odd hours in the saddle passing through some of Australia’s most beautiful riding roads.

Quite Marks 1961 GS 150 engine was completely overhauled, with an up-gear kit installed and the barrel and piston more heavily ported, she was Dynoed at over double its original horsepower and a top speed of over 112km/hr. A SIP speedo was installed to keep track of his engine temp and of course speed. My GS160 mk2 had its clutch rebuilt after last year’s event and have had a few more creature comforts made, like a custom comfy seat, digi speedo and scrollable map….GPS and phones are not allowed as part of the event. And Scooter Fleur’s GS 160 MK1 with simply serviced and given a new rear Tyre!!!! Talk about reliable.

SS Scooter wish Team GS luck and see you and the rest of the competitors at the finish line.

VESPA VN2T

Like most Australian imported Vespas and Lambrettas we find a huge discrepancy in our models compared to their Italian mothers.

This Vespa, with its frame number VN2T should be a Faro Basso model (low light or lamp down). In other words, the headlight is mounted on the mudguard, and should also have a 125cc powered cylinder.

But this barn find had neither, the headlight proudly sits atop the handlebars and the cylinder was still at its original 145.5cc bore.

She had either been modified in Australia by the dealer, or she arrived on our shores in her current guise.

I still like to think that the Italians, on a Friday afternoon, would get around to the Australasian export scooters and give them a touch of uniqueness (in other words, they would get rid of excess parts from different models and years and ship them off).

Either way, this bellissima is on her way to a very proud owner in Adelaide. He’ll be riding (not hiding) this uniquely Aussie Vespa, and it will join his vast Vespa and Lambretta collection.

Vespa PX 200 Street Racer

Friday feature scooter: Vespa PX 200 Street Racer (photographed by Wolfwerk Photography , built by SSScooter:

With an initial brief to turn his every day ride into a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”, this machine quickly went the opposite direction when just before the build the owner went for a “full-on” orange veneer.

With the stainless SIP expansion pipe hanging out the side, the Garelli carbon mudgard out front and the bright red Bitubos keeping her on the ground; all point directly that this is a wolf, inside and out.

She is definitely not disguising the fact that she is not only a tyre burner but also a work of street racer art to hit the roads from SS SCOOTER!

The Canberra Swam Scooter Club proudly hosted this years National Scooter Rally with great success in Jindabyne.

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 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

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.
