Default Re: Lambretta scooter lovers here ?

Earlier this week I was travelling Goa and came across these beautiful Lambrettas. The guy (circled in red named John) is restoring one more Lambretta and a Vijay Supar.

Really nice work done by John.

Default Regd NDTV coverage on old scooter scene in Pune city

Dear Pune folks,
Seeing our facebook page on Deccan Lambretta Club (DLC), NDTV people expressed their interest in a shooting a coverage on 6th Jan (Sunday) on the above mentioned theme. They are interetsed in seeing about 20 Lambrettas gathered at one place, have a short interview with owners about their passion towards Lambrettas, a 20 - 30 mins drive (probably to a cafe or some food joints), shooting & interviewing people while driving, & then disperse. Keeping the looks of the scooter aside, if the scooter is functionaly sound then the scooter could be counted up on for the coverage.
I request our fellow Pune Lambrettians to reach me in this forum / my email (ilango.nps@gmail.com) / my mobile (9850473973). As this show would revolve around olds scooter's scene, is not just confined to Lambrettas. You may joing with your vintage Vespas, Fabtabulous, or any other scooter which would classify as vintage. Please spread this info acorss your friends who are not in this forum. More the number of scooters, more impressive the show will turn out. Spare some time and make you vintage scooter be seen on the TV.

Default Fotos during the NDTV Shoot

Dear all,
Thanks to the Pune Lambrettians and Vintage bike owners for the overwhelming respone. The shoot turned out really well. We were taken into surprise while seeing the vehicle count increasing from barely 6 to 20 now. Apart from Lambretta DNA, there were Jawas and an SHL M11. Vespas, Lambretta series 1 & a D were a treat to the eyes. The newly restored white - green Vijai Super added a Bling to the show. Above all, the anchor herself drove the White - Yellow LI 150 around the busy streets of Pune. All these might sound childish for people in a larger club like in B'lore or Mumbai. Some how I couldn't control my excitement seeing the classic vehicles count growing in Pune.

This psychadelic Lambretta apparently does the rounds in Pune every now and then. I'd love to see it in action!
