The Lambretta Club Sardinia organized the 28th edition of the national meeting in eastern Sardinia, precisely in Ogliastra, a destination that all scooter riders, around 600 participants, enjoyed during these three days in May in the company of a crystal clear sea and great mountains.

Mateo sent us some impressions of this big event in one of the most beautiful landscapes in Italy! Thank you Mateo!

An old friend of Scooter Center was here. Sebastian Alvarez from Argentina, he came especially for EuroLambretta 2022 in Belgium and Euro Vespa Days in Portugal and now that he was around he decided to stock up on spare parts for his shops, learn more about the facilities at the Scooter Centers to find out and to visit us.

And of course I had to be there to tell him all about it in his native language Scooter Center and Cologne to explain!!!

History of Vespa and Lambretta in Argentina

but we also took the opportunity to learn a little more about the incredible history of Vespa, Lambretta and the very special one: Siambretta in Argentina, because it is one of the South American countries with the longest Vespa and Vespa Club history, and how could different when the Vespa is represented by a legend: Juan Manuel FANGIO, the Argentine racing driver considered by experts as one of the most outstanding professional drivers in world motorsport of all time, having won five world titles in Formula 1.

With so much luck, Sebastian had access to beautiful treasures from his customers, like this piece with original papers signed by Fangio:

The origin of the Siambretta in Argentina begins in the 1950s, with the SIAM company, which imported all the parts, but then started building under the name: SIAM-Lambretta, the desire then took the name: siambretta, the success was such that it started production quite nationally.

The curious thing about the Siambretta is that the most famous models in Argentina were exactly the oldest Lambretta models, while in Italy the 200, 175, 150, etc. are the most "common" Lambrettas, while in Argentina the 125 was very successful. In Argentina there are circles of “siambreteros” who own motorcycles admirable for their level of originality.

Restauraciones Extremas - Official Dealer Scooter Center in Argentina

and Restauraciones Extremas are part of this important history in Argentina, reviving ancient beauties. Here are some examples of the "extreme restorations" he's done and some of them are possible thanks to the new parts he's from Scooter Center got.  

Siambretta 125 LD and Siambretta TV175

Congratulations for such dedicated work, nice to see how everyone in the Lambretta world knows each other and forms a nice community, have fun in the EuroLambretta and thank you Sebastian for visiting us, you are always welcome You can do more of his work see here:

About AROUND HALF AT THE BAR we have already reported. Sitting in the middle of the network Daniel drescher and has the overview and coordinates the campaigns and fundraising for the worst case scenario throughout Germany.
We have been trying to support him in this for some time and are deeply impressed by Daniel's tireless commitment.

Yesterday David Batschi from Hamburg visited us, who luckily had a guardian angel with him on tour on May 1st, 2022. At around 100 km/h on the Autobahn, David's shock absorber mount broke and he went over the handlebars, slid over the road and was braked by the crash barrier. With incredible luck in the misfortune, he "only" broke four ribs and his foot in two places and also suffered a concussion and a few minor injuries.

About a month after his accident, David visited us and the shop den 200 € voucher redeemed by Um Halb at the Bar eV. We are enthusiastic about David's good mood and cheerful nature and of course also about the fact that - thanks to a good full-face helmet and a good motorcycle jacket - nothing more happened to him. The David shopping list included a front bgm shock absorber  and a new one Shock absorber/brake caliper mount

Nice to see that David coped with the accident so well and is now on his way to the Scooter dive from Filthy & Sly at a hunt.
No matter where you drive at Pentecost, at the Scooter Dive, at the Eurolambretta in Belgiumthe Vespa Alp Days in Austria or with the 2 Men from Linz on the Rhine drive carefully and have fun!!

What happens to a Vespa that has crossed a whole continent in 22 months and driven 72.000 km with a full load - over 100 kg of luggage alone - over all kinds of roads?

We are always excited when someone shows up with a great adventure and see with great interest how they are prepared for this trip and are curious to see which parts can withstand the stresses best. Rarely do we get the chance to see the wear and tear of every part after a great trip.

Atze's adventure with Vesparicana is a very good example of this. He was with different people back then bgm Parts traveled and after this adventure and years later Jan visited us at SC to show us these parts.

Jan is the mechanic of Atze and his Vespa Elsi and he knows exactly which pieces deserve to rest. Like the bgm shock absorberthat was installed on Elsi. Due to the heavy luggage, the frame warped in the area of ​​the upper shock absorber mount. As a result, the shock absorber's reservoir was in permanent contact with the chassis. Through the work of the damper and enemy contact, the damper has been exposed up to the O-rings. And if we consider that the weight of the luggage was almost 120kg at the beginning and later about 100kg of it was 10l gasoline, 5l water, almost 30kg tools and spare parts and the rest was equipment such as tent, stove, sleeping bag and clothing, all of that plus corrosion as a driver. Then it is clear what would happen, and while the shock absorber still does its job, it's time to replace it as a new adventure approaches.


Across America - 72.000 kilometers with bgm shock absorbers

At the mechanic's and the wear and tear


Vespa Elsi and driver Atze deserve a new shock absorber and many more parts for the next adventure. We know that the two of them are planning a new, beautiful adventure through Africa, we are excited to see how it will turn out and we will keep you up to date. Of course, also about the preparations for the Vespa.
