newark [part two]

the scooterist's had a seperate hall to show off their bikes this year and they certainly turned out in force to support the show, i ignored the moaning off dangerous, [he just doesn't 'get' two strokes i'm afraid, i love 'em me] and followed the geezer in the paddy smith, rally patch be-decked, m1a jacket into the scooter show, dangerous bitching and shuffling along behind me, there really were some very nice machines on show but unfortunately they were packed in a bit too tight to get any decent pic's, one of my favourites was the vespa streetracer, loads of s.i.p german tuning parts including the lovely billet race caliper and dropped headset, [the scooterist version of 'ace bars' or clip-on's but a lot harder to carry off, the headset has to be cut and rewelded at a lower angle as well as the top cover to match, lot's of work to achieve what we can do by just changing our 'bar's], for all you 'unbeliever's' like dangerous, do yourself a favour and have a look at the work that goes into some of these bikes and remember, they ride them all over the country and europe to scooter rallies, not like a lot of 'biker's' who think the world end's at matlock bath....
