Great weather - great people - great scooters

Wow, that was a weekend! On Saturday, May 5th, we invited the international scooter custom scene to Cologne again to celebrate the 11th. Scooter Center Celebrate Customshow!

The construction on Friday became part of the flesh and blood after 11 years and was done relatively quickly. In the evening the first guests from Munich and Hamburg came. On Saturday morning the well-rehearsed Scooter Center Team made the final preparations until we were able to welcome our international exhibitors at 9:00 am.

The adventure halls in Cologne Kalk offer a very special atmosphere every year: History was made in Cologne with the engine production of the Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz (KHD) company. Production of the four-stroke engine began in Cologne in 1876. Gottlieb Daimler, Wilhelm Maybach and Ettore Bugatti worked together on the development of the 4-T engine before they later went their separate ways. The basis of the 4-stroke engine was created in the Cologne KHD halls!

So it fits very well that we can exhibit our beloved scooters in these venerable halls today and show them to a wide audience. No matter if 2-stroke or 4-stroke, gearshift or automatic! So on Saturday there was again a wide selection of great scooters to be admired.

Spread over 2 halls and over 5.000 square meters, there was a wide range of over 1.000 different scooters for the more than 120 visitors. There were also premieres on site that were presented to the public for the first time. There were participants and visitors from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, England, Italy and even Colombia.

In the large outdoor area with a cozy beer garden, Tatort sausage roastery, wood-fired pizza, crepes and delicious coffee from the Expresso-Ape, the guests spent a relaxing time with friends.

Countless scooters were also parked in front of the halls, some of which definitely deserved to be recognized as custom scooters. It's great what NRW and the Rhineland has to offer as a scooter scene with all its clubs and events! We are already looking forward to the 12. Scooter Center Scooter Custom Show!

We thank the sponsors among supporters:

  • ACF-50
  • BELL
  • DCM
  • GIVI

New Scooter Center Roller

We don't want to make you curious now, really not - but we have not been idle in the last few months and will be our own new one at our own custom show Scooter Center Present project!
Will it be a Lambretta, a Vespa? Classic with gearshift? Automatic - or something completely different? Let yourself be surprised ... see you at the Scootershow 2018.

Best weather & great atmosphere

The forecast announces the best scooter weather! Plenty of sun with a cloudless sky and well over 20 degrees. So feel free to come by scooter and enjoy the legendary atmosphere during petrol talks among scooter drivers. Our gastro awaits you in the cozy outdoor area:


Over 150 scooters at the custom show

Over 150 scooters await you in the two large halls of the Cologne Adventure Halls.

You still have no idea what scooters you can expect there? Here we have a small selection of scooter pictures that the exhibitors sent us in advance:

Lambretta meets Kawasaki - the # 24, DuPont Racer

Marek from the Hamburg playroom is known in our house for his blatant conversions. At the Scooter Customshow he also presented his Vespa 10 Inch Terror. If you haven't seen them live, here are a few pictures:

# 24, DuPont Racer

The previous Vespa project, now Lambretta:
Lambretta meets Kawasaki - style meets reliability and the two-stroke world collides and harmonizes like never before with four strokes.
DuPont Lambretta
Starting point is a Lambretta LI3 Frame that with the frame of a Kawasaki GPZ500S was connected. We asked Marek for a few words about his latest project from Hamburg. Now read here what he says about his latest project:
“After doing my last renovation 10 inch terror Having successfully got rid of the teething troubles, it was time for something new. I came across them more or less by accident Kawasaki GPZ 500. The engine has a reputation for being very solid and 60 PS are not very much for a motorcycle, but with a short reduction they should pull the wrists a lot. And the project has to be put down briefly, because 200 km/h I didn't want to ride on 10 "tires.
Another LI3 frame hung under the ceiling of the playroom, which my friend Andre quickly talked about. The donor moped was bought at the auction house for little money. "

Huge engine with 60hp

“It quickly became apparent that the rear frame of the Lambretta had been widened by 4 cm and by 13 cm extended had to be to get everything under the disguises. The original GPZ swing arm was shortened to the maximum, but the motor itself is so big that despite the conversion work, space under the frame loop is a problem.

Vespa glove box as a tank

Aerocatch fasteners from automobile racing hold the hoods. A Vespa glove box was adapted, converted into a tank and provided with a Newton fuel cap.
The electrics, the ignition lock, the speedometer and the indicators come from Motogadget.

bgm PRO shock absorber & Casa Perfomance brake

Lambretta dupont Racer with bgm Pro chassis and Casa Lambretta brake
Bgm is our own brand and Casa Performance Germany is happy about that Scooter Center Of course, also that Marek has installed a Casa Performance brake and also relies on a bgm PRO Lambretta suspension for the fork with this weight under an output of 60PS: “The front brake is from Casa Performance, a Honda CB400 hub is installed at the rear.
The fuel supply is ensured with a Hardi pump, which is mounted under the fender at the front. The cooling water tubing was realized with flexible steel hoses and AN fittings, the cooler is located under the floor panel and has to be placed a little higher because in its current position it limits the angle of the curve too much.
The gearshift takes place via a Powershifter from Translogic, the clutch is only required for starting. The # 24 from the Nascar / Winston Cup racing series served as a template for the paintwork. The construction time was only 18 months. "
I am impressed and happy with Marek Custom Lambretta welcome to Cologne!
You too can experience the # 24 DuPont Racer live: on May 5th at the Scooter Customshow in Cologne.

Vespa globetrotters at the Scooter Customshow in Cologne

The Scooter Center custom show will be one again World travel Vespa to stand. With his discarded Postvespa "Elsi" dares Scooter Center Client “Atze” Alexander Eischeid the adventure and sets off to America.

Forests, deserts, tropics, mountains, rain and storms, tar, gravel and sand had to be in 19 countries and 22 months be conquered until the oceans unite.

This trip brought unimaginable encounters, unexpected situations and breathtaking landscapes with it.

  • Eight pistons,
  • two cylinders,
  • He used up three brake drums 71.000km.

Blood, tears, sweat, adventure and pure joie de vivre.

CNC Lambretta Barracuda

Before the Lambretta BARRACUDA was Vespa EL-SIDNEY

Our customer Felix and his new project: Lambretta Barracuda! He's coming to our premiere with this impressive scooter custom show. But let's take a quick look back first:

A previous project by Felix is ​​the Vespa PX “EL-SIDNEY”. This scooter tells a story: it was the first Vespa with a CNC engine.

The Vespa PX EL-SIDEY has been the development vehicle for various developments since May 2006, not least for the one that is available today Vespa CNC motor from GP-ONE and KR-Automation GmbH, as we do in our Vespa Smallframe demonstrator XI GENERATION have installed.

Of course, the scooter was also in various newspapers and magazines such as Scooterring, Rollerjornal, etc.

With this Vespa PX, Felix has won some “Best Engineering” awards and has also proven in practice on quartermiles what the scooter is capable of via 50PS plugged. As is currently the case in the new Lambretta project, that brought it bgm PRO chassis Even with the Vespa, the 50PS is safe on the road.


  • 38mm Keihin carburetor
  • V-Force membrane
  • Rotax 248cc cylinder
  • 61mm KR CNC crankshaft
  • S&S coupling
  • KR CNC gearbox
  • S&S wide tire kit
  • 120/90 rear tires
  • KR CNC engine block with support of the main shaft with 3rd ball bearing
  • Exhaust in-house development with Viton flange after the manifold and suitable right hand routing
  • Silent bushes from ClaussStudio
  • Adapted MVT ignition

Frame and chassis:

  • Stainless steel pipe in the hatch
  • Fully hydraulic disc brake on the front wheel
  • Jaws widened by 40mm on each side (gills on spare wheel cheek made of carbon fiber)
  • Carbon fiber spoiler with a satin finish, tested twice in the wind tunnel of the University of Stuttgart
  • Chassis bgm PRO
  • Short-stroke throttle
  • Speedometer SIP
  • Exhaust gas temperature measurement Stage6
  • Clear glass turn signals
  • Xenon headlights dipped beam
  • High beam halogen
  • Taillight LED
  • Harley tank in the passage (rotated and modified)
  • Water cooler (KTm Duke) arranged under the side hood in a V-shape.
  • 2pcs. SPAL fan can be switched on separately if necessary

The Lambretta BARRACUDA story

After selling the EL-Sidney in 2014, Felix fell into a deep hole ;-). Well at least he was looking for a new challenge and comforted himself with a Lambretta frame.
Over time, the vision arose to build another vehicle with a CNC motor. With the idea of ​​further developing the ideas from the El-Sidney project and integrating new features. The Lambretta BARRACUDA should surpass the Vespa EL-SIDNEY.
So at the end of 2015, Felix gave a Lambretta motor to Topometric for 3D measurement. The tried and tested cylinder and membrane from the Vespa engine should also be used in the Lambretta. The decision to integrate an injection is new. So we can be excited and hope that our dynamometer will do the same ...


In order to have a theme around the vehicle, an individual design was developed around the Lambretta: BARRACUDA.
Why “BARRACUDA”? Predatory fish, long and slender. Fits 100% on this Lambretta!
Custom is the program here. Most of the parts are custom-made. The design was based on all of these self-made CNC components adopted in order to get not only a paint job, but also many small, finely worked details. This is how a Lambretta is currently being created with unique recognition features from the luggage rack, brake drums, to the step rails, brake pedal and the handles:
