Stunning bookazine by Andy Gillard. Here is a short summary in Andy s words:Taking up a lot of my time this year has been the researching and writing of this bookazine called the Art of Scooters that is due to be published in the UK on 28 August.
The subject of custom scooters from days gone by is often raised by readers and indeed is the subject of many a pub conversation at rallies. Was Spirit Walker really that breathtaking? Would Wake still win trophies today? Was Headhunter Mk1 or Mk2 the best? Is there such a thing as a decent Vespa chopper? What was the best street racer built?
Well hopefully, among the 132 pages here you will find some answers. You will also find over 140 custom scooters from around the UK as well as Europe, mainly drawn from the Scootering archives that began in 1985 and continue up to the present day. Sadly, a number of images have been lost, damaged or stolen over the years, so there is a number of scooters we couldn t include (Exile and a complete Dazzle for example), but nevertheless there are plenty to keep you gawping for days! We even take a look back at custom scooters from the 50s, 60s and 70s too.
So whether your thing be radical chops, engine transplants, accessorised Mod style scooters, fully muralled Lambrettas or classic P-range Vespas, they are all in here and more.
