They all have the same bodywork. A Silver or Golden Special is an Li150 Special painted either silver or gold (with either a gold or silver 'special' frame badge). An SX150 has a bit of chrome along center front mudguard and a slightly different engine spec I think. Maybe you got real lucky and have a late TV175 or TV200 that look the same too, but with disc brakes and dampers on front forks.

This my Golden Special.



Looks like the nice Silver Special above has a GP frame badge behind seat - I'd swap an old Italian Silver Special frame badge and holder for a LD 150 fan cover?

Congratulations BCSC. It was nice to have a FIAT Meet along with Scooters yet again. Surprised to see around 30 scooters today!

FIATians enjoyed watching your scoots, hope you enjoyed the FIATs!

Somebody upload the pics please!

I had the pleasure and privilege of attending a BCSC rally for the first time on sunday when I visited B'lore.

It sure was fun and also great meeting sidman, arun and some other members I knew. I guess this was also the first time I've driven a vehicle in Bengaluru!

This is the third thread I am posting this on. (My apologies moderators, I am still a newbie and I am yet to hone my search skills)

My neighbourhood mechanic informed me about a Vijay Super and a Lambretta lying in a scrap yard in a nearby village (near Belgaum). They are in bad shape and they will probably not have papers but if anyone is interested, I will be more than happy to get you through to the mechanic. He is quoting a very high price (6 thousand for each) and it probably consists of his more than generous commission.
I would have gone to the village and taken pictures for your benefit but I have my exams going on and I cannot spare the time.

Today's rally was a huge success, with over 50 scooters participating! It is heartening to see so many younger members joining us. The Rally ended at Legends Motorcycling Café & Museum, which is a great hangout for classic bike fans. We thank everyone who attended, and made this rally a resounding success! Photos:

There was a good turn out at the rally on Oct 30, 2011...around 40 scooters. There was a Vespa with a wicker-basket type sidecar. We did not have a ride due to traffic restrictions caused by the BJP Yatra and the Metallica concert. Enjoy the photos!

Hey Sidman,

I happy to note that BCSC is going strong with their rallies on the last Sunday of every month.

I am seeing the wicker-basket type side car for the first time. Guess it will offer poor protection but will make the side car very light.

Cheers
