Lambretta Rally

Try Cromate SC, the local Lambretta Club, organized an awesome ride out in the soft hills in the region of Emilia Romagna on Sunday as a side program to the Rimini Lambretta Center Open Day.



Entire video

You can find the video of the entire ride out beginning at the stop at Europlastsucci with GPS - measured speed display. Enjoy:

Yummy stopover

In a well organized corso of about 50 lambrettas we reached our first interim goal after a few kilometers: Europlastsucci. An old customer and manufacturer of GRP frame sections and further Lambretta specialties.


In order to regain strength for the rest of our ride out and as mental preparation for lunch we have an Aperitif. After adjusting the tick-over rpm with Prosecco and other non-liquid refreshments we leave the city and cross the mountains in a great track.

Lambretta BSG Corse with 45HP and 305cc

Of course we have already had the opportunity to drive many extremes scooters. Goal Philipp's scooter for the corso was a doozie:Lambretta Scooter Center Italy

BSG Corse Lambretta with 305cc cubic capacity and performance of more than 50 HP. The most violent we ever rode. CNC - engine block milled from one single piece, 305cc BSG Corse cylinder, Cyclone5 5 speed gearbox and BGM PRO Superstrong clutch. This monster has more than 50 HP. The demonstrator was downsized from 51HP to 45HP via ignition for the RLC Open Day.

First impression:

The beast has instant throttle control and within a blink of the eye you exceeded 100km / h. Thanks to BGM PRO SUPERSTRONG clutchSwitching gears is clear, easy and very smooth, the 5 speed gearbox perfectly transferred. Power without limits and pressure in every gear.



Lambretta with a high amount of performance

The CNC engine has a crankshaft with wide crank webs. In order to securely transfer the performance of the 305cc cylinders to the street, the proven components BGM PRO shock absorbers and BGM silent blocks are used for the wheel suspension. Due to the enormous cubic capacity the exhaust is large. However its distance to the ground is sufficient for it to not put down on the street, even in hairpin bends. A vehicle of such a high performance also needs a strong braking system. RLC uses aa MMW disc brakes.

There is a high amount of performance in this engine, so it doesn't come unexpectedly that the frame hits its limits since the original engine offers only a fifth of performance when being compared to the BSG Corse engine

Thanks to Dean Orton for this amazing experience! And thanks to Try Cromate SC for this beautiful day!

Part 1

Rimini Lambretta Center 20th Anniversary Open Day / Rimini

Following in the tracks of the history of Scooter Center by the Lake Garda


Video of the first leg

Lake Garda was the first interim target. We visited old friends, enjoyed Italy and wallowed in memories. In its 23 years of existence history of Scooter Center Lake Garda plays a crucial role.



Back then, Oliver Kluger bought it very first scooter for Scooter Center and transported it to Germany. The Scooter was a Vespa Rally TS 125. Later, the Vespa was processed in Cologne and resold to Volker, who is still driving it today. He was our first customer and naturally sticks to us. You rather know us for a quick delivery of spare and tuning parts for scooters. However, we currently have several used Vespa scooters we offer.

The night was short and the journey continued early on Saturday morning, heading to Rimini. The track to travel sounds like music to our ears: “Verona, Mantova, Modena, Bologna, Imola, Rimini”. Our anticipation grows, the closer we get to our destination.




The Rimini Lambretta Center and Dean Orton

For years the Rimini Lambretta Center has been a good customer and supplies us with 5 speed Lambretta Cyclone gearbox, Maxi Flusso Lambretta intake manifold and the new Casa Lambretta Performance cylinders.

Rimini Lambretta Center

The 5 speed Lambretta gearbox is more than a mere part of a scooter to Dean. You know this once you saw it CYCLONE 5 Tattoo on his forearm. We mainly supply BGM products to RLC, which are used for their restorations. Lambretta restorations are the main business of Dean Orton and his team. RLC loves and lives Lambretta. Overwhelming Lambretta scooters are created in an impressive garage. Our anticipation and expectations were immense and we should not be disappointed.

Rimini in the region of Emilia Romagna

"Rimini: the Adriatic, center of beach tourism - a seaside resort with a long tradition, beach, sun, sea." But we had more important things to do! Our destination was the Zona Industriale: The 20th anniversary and Open Day of Rimini Lambretta Center.
After a heart warming welcome by many old friends, we started to put up our stall. This was quickly accomplished, since Philipp had sent the products we wanted to display to a wrong address ... :-) Luckily we were allowed to display products from the RLC stocks.

Rimini Lambretta Center Open Day

The grounds around the RLC were quickly filled with mainly Italian and English Lambrettisti. There were overalls 500 visitors with about 120 lambrettas and only a handful of Vespas.

Dean really dished up for that 20th anniversary of RLC. Entering the shop you were welcomed by a world record Lambretta: The fully faired Lambretta that broke the 200 km/h limited to August 8th, 1951. Romolo Ferri set the world record on a motorway that was blocked from traffic between Ingolstadt and Munich. The mechanically supercharged 125cc engine is told to have had about 21 HP.

A huge transportable pizzeria supplied finest specialties from the region including sufficient wine, water, beer and coffee.

Overwhelming Lambretta test drive

RLC had managed to have a circuit blocked from traffic, so that you were able to test drive the scooters within the industrial estate.DSC01225rimini-lambretta-italrimini-lambretta-ital


Alongside scooters, which have been restored by RLC, there were mainly scooters from the Casa Lambretta collection available for test rides. The two Lambretta Innocenti two-cylinder prototypes were at the center of attention. In the past months these were restored by RLC for Victor Tessera. The June edition of scootering will present the restoration of the interior of the engines. We also did a test ride on the Innocenti two-cylinder prototypes. We can only say: Too sad they didn't make it into serial production.

Lambretta with 305cc and 50HP

305cc and more than 50HP - the most violent scooter we ever rode: BSG CasaPerformance 305cc prototype. CNC engine block with 305cc BSG cylinder, Cyclone5 5 speed gearbox and BGM PRO Superstrong clutch. This monster has more than 50 HP. The Lambretta's programmable ignition was downsized to 45 HP for the test drives. On our cruise on Sunday we were able to extensively test it. The fitting video will follow in the second part of this article. Watch this space!

BSG Corse brought scooters with overwhelming performance. vespa Smallframes were those scooters that chased around the circuit with immense revs. These were later joint by the legendary Signore Angelo Zirri and almost the entire Smallframe tuning scene.

Even the greatest events have to come to an end. So at some stage we had to dismantle everything. But luckily we still had a shared tea and nighter with a fantastic view on the mountains left!

Nighter in the mountains in the region of Emilia Romagna

The joint meal and all-nighter took place in an Osteria in the mountains. A fantastic site with view on the lights of Rimini and San Marino in the distance.allnighter_04rimini-lambretta-italrimini-lambretta-ital




Many kind talks, many Italian snacks and some cups of wine later we fell into our beds in the early hours of the morning. It was a short night with only a little relaxation. Only several hours later we were meant to get to the next highlight. On the cruise we were able to test the 305cc prototypes for their fitted BGM parts.
