Our new Lambretta demonstrator

To the international Scooter Center custom show friends from Italy also came. The team from the Rimini Lambretta Center brought us our new Lambretta Scooter Center / bgm – demonstrator.

You don't see twice - there are two demonstrator Lambrettas. A Lambretta in Orange Metallic from Rimini Lambretta Center, which is partially equipped with Casa Performance parts, and our demonstrator in neon red with all bgm products.

It is about a Lambretta Vijay Super Mk2, which has a rotating fender. http://www.scooterrestorations.com/lambretta/turning-front-mudguard-vijay-super-mkii/

We think the team around Dean Orton has done a great job here and our favorite lacquer virtuoso Pfeili shows off all his skills. In case you missed the scooter at the show: we have a few pictures for you:

Run & Race 2016, Pomposa, Italy - September 16-18.09.2016, XNUMX

That was last weekend Scooter Center drove to the Adriatic coast for the Run & Race finals of the European Scooter Challenge. Thanks to the participation of the British Scooter Sport Organization (BSSO) and several other international drivers, the spectators are offered a good spectacle on the kart track.

With the Lambretta to the Adriatic

Sounds like a vacation, but the vacation is long gone. We had 3.000 kilometers and a few days of hard work in Bella Italia ahead of us. Our bus was packed with equipment and our best bgm parts for that Run & Race Italy

The journey started on Thursday in Cologne. After 1.000 km from Lake Garda, on Friday we drove the remaining 250 km to Pomposa on the Adriatic Sea with the scooters. So on Friday it is time to leave early and the tour group splits up into a tour guide and an escort vehicle. The tour guide is done by two Race Tour Lambrettas with 28 Polini carburetors and the bgm big box:

  1. Lambretta DL 150 with 225 bgm PRO RaceTour
  2. Lambretta LI 150 1st series 195 bgm PRO RaceTour

Lambretta DL & LI

 

Tough test drive in the rain and pothole slalom

Test drive in Bella Italia: summer, blue skies and every now and then a stop at the car grill. That's the plan! Half an hour after the start, reality overtakes our wishful thinking. After the motorway tunnel in Verona we drive into the pouring rain. Fortunately, there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing - and we had plenty of that with us!

But nothing helps and until shortly before Pomposa we continue on the Autostrada in the rain.
Fortunately, we did not notice the violent storm directly. Several cars in guard rails and trenches, but give an impression of what must have been going on shortly before us.

Ride a scooter in the rain

Despite the capricious weather conditions and potholes, we are quite brisk. The cruising speed with the motors is around 110 km / h (GPS). The new TomTom Vio shows us the way. Both the bgm motors and the bgm chassis keep what is promised and the journey is quick and easy. The bottom line is a great tour that is a lot of fun.

The video of the scooter tour

Big Run & Race in Italy

As the rain stops a bit before Pomposa and the thick cloud cover tears up, we luckily do not arrive completely drenched. The welcome from Rimini Lambretta Centers Marco and the organizers of SIR is warm as usual. After the first cups of white wine, we first move into our luxurious bungalow.

Our luxury bungalow

There will be a 'menu' on both evenings. To be honest, we imagined it to be quite different in Italy ... Both evenings will be quite long for Philipp thanks to the super nighters.

The breakfast on Saturday morning is great, unfortunately we don't have much time because the stand needs to be set up and we are excited to see what awaits us. Breakfast by the sea in the best weather.

run-race-italy-2016_-18

Thanks to our routine, setting up our stand is quite easy for us - at least for those who were sober in bed before 5 a.m.
Accompanied by the incessant howling of sophisticated scooter motors, we present our bgm product range throughout the day and have many great conversations with old and new friends from:

  • Italy
  • Switzerland
  • Germany
  • Austria
  • Greece
  • England
  • Cyprus

Our photos from the weekend

RACE - The races

The exciting races take place directly across the street, where fierce battles were held down to the last meter. The Italian teams from CASA Performance and Parmakit dominate the big classes here - LINK bgm TEILE RENNTEAM. Our Austrian friend Stoffi impressively wins the standard class with the Polini engine -> LINK Shop standard class. Michi from the Stoffi team, we hang our camera around - this is what a one-class training session looks like:

RUN - the scooter meeting

Run & Race - there is also a scooter run during the race. The Italian clubs have stands on the grounds of the racetrack and you can buy parts or merchandise, marvel at scooters and talk about petrol everywhere.
The evening events take place on a camping and bungalow park where all participants were accommodated. The announced concert on Saturday is unfortunately canceled, the Open Air Nighter boiled over until the police arrive. The event is spontaneously moved inside and, if the mood is even better, the party will continue until the early hours of the morning.
After an Italian breakfast on Sunday morning, saying goodbye is difficult! But this time the 250 km return journey lies ahead of us in the most beautiful sunshine. For the last part we leave the motorway and take a scenic route through the hinterland and mountains. We reach our base camp on Lake Garda in a good mood. We still had a lot to do here:

  • Photoshoot Kerresinhio Quartet
  • Visit to the piston manufacturer Meteor in Milan
  • Photos & videos

Am third weekend of September takes place in Pomposa the final run the European Scooter Challenge (short: ESC - www.eurochallenge.de / www.facebook.com/eurochallenge) instead of. The name and the program pay homage to the legendary Run & Race events of Stonhead SC in Liedolsheim.

SIR (Scooterclubs Italiani Riuniti - www.scooterclubitaliani.com) a joint Italian meeting for the first time. the 1st national Run of SIR so to say.

In addition to the main organizers of the ESC and SIR, the meeting is being massively pushed by Casa Lambretta, Parmakit and the Rimini Lambretta Center. That Scooter Center Of course, we will not miss it and will be there with a bgm stand and catalogs. So what can we expect?

FRIDAY

Friday can be relaxed training on the Pomposa race track. In addition to the ESC drivers, drivers from all other European racing series are also invited. A joint coach is chartered for the drivers of the BSSO and the transport of the racing scooters is also organized and takes place via three central locations in England.

The nighter takes place on Friday evening - like all events (except the races) - in the holiday home Florence instead of. The SIR DJ's will play until the early hours of the morning.

 

SATURDAY

The ESC finale, that's all you have to say !?

In the evening there will be a joint dinner, the concert of THE BEAT followed by a nighter. Both open air and with an explosive mix of SIR Scooterists and Austrian and German ESC drivers who are celebrating the end of their racing series. The Dean from Rimini will have hit the nail on the head with his prognosis of a “mental jolly up”.

Admission to the run is € 25 for the whole weekend (€ 20 for SIR members, ESC and BSSO drivers).

You can find information about the cost of the race here: www.eurochallenge.de.

ACCOMMODATION

The holiday home is two kilometers from the racetrack Florence. You can share one of the bungalows with several people at low cost. With its own swimming pool, beach, beauty spa, two restaurants and other unusual amenities, the extension of the stay before and or after the race is almost a necessity. All evening events (nighter, concerts, etc pp) also take place in the Florence instead.

https://holidayvillageflorenz.com/de

Booking inquiries are best sent directly to: gianluca.luciani@campingflorenz.com. If there was no answer after three days, Dean from the Rimini Lambretta Center is happy to help out in Italian. Simply send an email to after the waiting period dean@riminilambrettacentre.com .

If three of you share a bungalow, the cost per head is € 60. There are: two nights, breakfast on Saturday and Sunday morning, dinner on Saturday, the nighter on Friday and the concert by THE BEAT and the nighter on Saturday evening. Scooters can be parked by the bungalow.

All in all, an extension of the excursion to Pomposa is a good idea. And the pool and beach promise a welcome cooling off after the races in sweltering Italy.

So it’s best not to hesitate and book now!

The promise can be taken seriously:

WE WANT YOU TO ENJOY RACING IN ITALY AND WE'LL DO EVERYTHING WE POSSIBLY CAN TO MAKE SURE THIS A MEMORABLE HISTORIC EVENT FOR ALL THOSE WHO PARTAKE!

bgm Lambretta engine

bgm cutaway model Lambretta engine

We asked our friends from the Rimini Lambretta Center to give us a bgm cutting motor as a demonstrator for our high quality bgm Lambretta parts to build.

The Team of Dean Orton received all the necessary parts from us, which were first disassembled and cleaned in an acid bath. In over 40 hours of manual labor Then came this masterpiece, which we present to you here in pictures and video.

This is the most beautiful Vespa in the world

With the most beautiful Vespa in the world on Lake Garda

What is meant is ours Scooter Center Demonstrator, Generation XI - a Vespa Primavera ET3, technical and thanks Arrow design from Austria also optically at the highest level. The Vespa has already won many awards at various international custom shows. Great work from our old friend Pfeili.

The most beautiful Vespa in the world - this statement also comes from Dean Orton - and if that's what a die-hard Lambrettista says, then it must be true. So we just take it and say thank you.

 

Mission two of our trip to Italy:

The guys and gals from Kerresinhios are lovingly designed for their Quartets known with classic scooters. Edition Eins is already a coveted collector's item.

For the new Kerresinhios As a scooter scene quartet, we want to find a great location here on Lake Garda with our demonstrator Vespa "Generation XI".

Scooter Center and Lake Garda

Why on Lake Garda? Lake Garda is very important in the history of Scooter Centers, In addition, the Generation XI a very special one Scooter Center- scooter, the one with a lot of passion, Sweat, brainpower and love for technical and optical details was built.

It seems too unimaginative and simple to us, this custom Spring ET3 simply to push in front of our shop or the Cologne Cathedral and take photos there. We were also for one other mission just around the corner anyway, so the shoot, 1.000km from home, on Lago di Garda was just the right thing to do. You will soon see the result in the newest Kerresinhio Quartet.

Greetings from Lago di Garda :-)

lambretta verona italia

With the bgm Lambretta to Verona

Mission one this trip to Italy: Our bgm test bike is technically with the finest bgm PRO- and Casa Lambretta parts fitted. Technically a Lambretta at the highest level.

Design follows function

Dean Orton's opinion (Rimini Lambretta Center) to the look of the bgm demonstrator Lambretta kennst You already do She's the one according to Dean Orton ugliest Lambretta in the universe.

Lambretta test bike

The design wasn't superficial for Construction of this Lambretta. All bgm PRO parte were on our test bike before series production Heart and kidney tested. In addition, this bike was available for our customers at various meetings test drives to disposal. It goes without saying that an easy-care paintwork had to be found here. Aside from that:

Tuning quotes

  • Design follows function
  • Chrome won't bring you home
  • Rust is lighter than carbon

Dean, please MODify our Lambretta

Still, “ugliest Lambretta” - we didn't want to let that sit on us! But since Dean is not entirely wrong, we did not hesitate when he offered us to rebuild the Lambretta optically. The Rimini Lambretta Center is ours bgm dealer for Italy. Dean, a mod as it stands in the book, wants to build a bgm demonstrator for the Italian market anyway, if he then sits on it ...

VW bus with Vespa and Lambretta in Italy-sc

La Dolce Vita

So we drove the Lambretta DL to Verona today and parked it there with a friend. We were received very warmly and so the handover of one or the other glass took longer than planned. We love Italian hospitality.

Dean will later pick up the scooter and return it to the sacred halls of the RLC Rimini Lambretta Center rebuild. We keep you here in the Scooter Center Blog informed about the development of the new bgm PRO demonstrator Lambretta.

For the casual reader of our blogs: not that you think: What kind of shop is this ??! With the ugliest Lambretta... first of all we are in the process of changing that and secondly we are proud of them too nicest Vespa to have in the world ... Look here

Scooter Center Italy

With Vespa and Lambretta to the promised scooter land

We love Italy and are back in Bella Italia right now. Italy is of course the country of origin of Vespa and Lambretta.

And how could it be otherwise: the way it is for you real Scooter shop should belong here, on Lake Garda in Italy, over 23 years ago history of Scooter Centers began.

Malcesine vespa lambretta italy-sc

In Malcesine in the middle of wonderful olive groves, on the east bank of Lake Garda, Oliver Kluger had the very first scooter (a Vespa Rally TS 125) for the Scooter Center bought and later sold to "Mod-Volker" from Cologne. Volker drives this wonderful Vespa still today, he is our very first customer and of course has remained loyal to us to this day.

Bon voyage - Dean visits this Scooter Center with the BSG Corse Lambretta

Dean Orton, the founder of Rimini Lambretta Center visited us in Scooter Center. On his way from Rimini via the Venlo Scooter Run to the ESC race at the Harz Ring, he stopped by for a few days. Dean use the trip to the BSG Corse engine to test its suitability for everyday use and travel. In doing so, it was anything but sparing the engine.

BSG Corse Lambretta test drive

dean orton lambretta

The test drive should be as real as possible, so Dean just packed his mod stuff and also:

  • another exhaust to test
  • all sorts of tools just in case
  • Camping equipment
  • and what else mod needs

Then he chased the Lambretta through the streets. From Rimini in Italy over the Alps to Austria and over Germany to Venlo in Holland. The way home then takes him back via Germany, past us and then on to the ESC race at the Harzring.

130km / h cruising speed with reduced 50PS

He reels this distance relatively relaxed at a constant cruising speed of 130km / h. And that with sufficient reserves to be able to overtake at 150km / h. Considerable when you consider the very short gear ratio of only 4,9. With this powerful motor, other speeds can also be achieved.

The CNC manufactured 305cc cylinder is throttled to approx. 50PS via the programmable ignition. Unthrottled, the engine already produced 63PS on the dynamometer at the Rimini Lambretta Center.

ESC roller race on the Harz-Ring

A European Scooter Challenge race will take place on the Harz-Ring this weekend. Dean meets the Casa Lambretta Racing Team here. The first tests and preparations for the race will take place on Friday. The Casa Lambretta racing scooters are equipped with the new parts of the Casa Lambretta Performance parts and some bgm PRO parts. We have the Casa team with the complete bgm PRO Lambretta chassisthe bgm PRO Lambretta silent blocks and the bgm PRO Superstrong Lambretta clutch equipped.

Our first time!

Even if we've known each other for ages and that Scooter Center Just as the Rimini Lambretta Center was founded around the same time, we already met at various events across Europe, but this year we managed to visit each other for the first time.

dean orton lambretta dean orton lambretta

In April we went to the Open Day and had a great time there in this brilliant Lambretta shop with our Italian friends, great Italian food and of course many great and unique legendary Lambretta models such as the Lambretta two-cylinder prototype and the BSG 305 Lambretta.

Here is the video from the Corso, Philipp on the BSG Lambretta

On Monday So it was finally time, it was an honor for us Dean im Scooter Center to welcome. We loved every second and there were lots of stories old and new to share and it was very fun. After a few “business talks” we had dinner together and it got very late. Dean praises ours Scooter Center Generation XI Smallframe Vespa the most beautiful object in the universe - just one breath later our bgm demonstrator Lambretta than that ugliest Lambretta in the world to brand. Mhhhh…. Since we were already confronted with this opinion at the Riva del Garda Customshow 2013, there had to be some truth to it. So we had to do something about it. So we decided to make the Lambretta available to him and to adapt the optics to the perfect mechanics.

dean orton on a lambretta
Tuesday Dean tests the Lambretta on the streets of the beautiful Rhineland and came right on time for the traditional afternoon tea to discuss some new Lambretta products.

On Thursday Dean actually wanted to look at our order process. Unfortunately, we got the glorious idea to test his scooter and both exhaust systems on the test bench. The diagrams of our P4 dynamometer almost coincide with the diagrams driven in Rimini. Time flew by and after dinner Dean was already on the way to the Harz-Ring.

Many greetings to the entire Rimini Lambretta Center team and to Vittorio with his Casa Lambretta Racing Team - we keep our fingers crossed for the race

Delicious stopover

After a few kilometers in one routinely organized corso with about fifty lambrettas, we reach the first stage destination: Europlastsucci. Long-standing customer and manufacturer of GRP frame parts and others Lambretta specialties.

DSC01250-lambretta-rally-irimini-taly

There is one here to strengthen yourself for the onward journey and as a mental preparation for the upcoming lunch Aperitif. After adjusting the idle gas with Prosecco and other fortifications in non-liquid form, we leave the city and it goes on a great route in and through the mountains.

Lambretta BSG Corse with 45 HP and 305 cc

Of course we already had the opportunity to ride a lot of extreme scooters. But what Philip was allowed to drive on the Corso the hammer:

Lambretta Scooter Center Italy

The BSG Corse Lambretta with a displacement of 305 cc and an output of over 50 hp. The most violent thing we've ever driven. CNC - engine block milled from one piece, 305 cc BSG Corse cylinder, Cyclone5 five-speed transmission and bgm PRO Superstrong clutch. This monster has over 50 hp. For the RLC Open Day, the demonstrator was unfortunately throttled from 51 HP to 45 HP via the ignition.

The first impression:

The beast hangs on the gas, with the blink of an eye you are beyond 100 km / h. The switching operations are thanks bgm PRO SUPERSTRONG clutch clean, simple and soft as butter, the gearbox with 5 gears is great. Endless power and pressure in every gear.
DSC01186rimini-lambretta-italrimini-lambretta-ital

DSC01187rimini-lambretta-italrimini-lambretta-ital

Lambretta with a lot of steam

Im CNC motor runs a nice wide crankshaft with two huge bearings. But in spite of that 305 cc runs the engine thanks to the bgm silent blocks äextremely low vibration. The bgm PRO Lambretta chassis brings the power safely and confidently to the road. Despite the rather massive belly of the exhaust, there are no bumps or similar ground contact in the switchbacks in the mountains. the MMW brake ensures the appropriate delay.

The engine has an insane power. The frame reaches its limits due to the power that the engine makes available. Not entirely unexpected when you consider that this engine is the five times the power of the original engine has.

Many thanks to Dean Orton for this great experience with this scooter!
Thanks to the Try Cromate SC for this beautiful day!

The Vespa was later refurbished and sold in Cologne. Volker bought it back then and still drives it today. He is our very first customer and of course still loyal to us today. While we are better known for our fast delivery of scooter spare, tuning and spare parts, we have a momentum at the moment used Vespa scooters on offer.

After a short night, it starts very early on Saturday to Rimini. The route sounds like music to your ears: “Verona, Mantova, Modena, Bologna, Imola, Rimini” and the closer we get to the goal, the greater the anticipation.

The Rimini Lambretta Center and Dean Orton

The Rimini Lambretta Center has been a good customer for years and supplies us with the CYCLONE 5 speed Lambretta transmission, the Maxi Flusso Lambretta intake manifold and the new one Casa Lambretta Performance cylinders.

Rimini Lambretta Center

That this Lambretta 5 speed gearbox is more than just a scooter part for Dean, you can also tell by that CYCLONE 5 Tattoo on his forearm. We mainly supply Rimini with ours bgm products, which they also use for their restorations. The Lambretta restorations are also the main business of the team around Dean Orton. The RLC loves and lives Lambretta. Spectacular Lambretta scooters are created in the impressive workshop. So the anticipation and our expectations were great and we should not be disappointed ...

Rimini in Emilia Romagna

“Rimini: Adriatic Sea, center of bathing tourism - a bathing resort with a long tradition, sand, sun, beach, sea“. But there are more important things to us! And that is in the Zona Industriale: The 20th birthday and OpenDay of the Rimini Lambretta Center.
After a warm welcome from many old friends, it is time to set up the stand. Which is done very quickly because Philipp sent the goods for the stand to the wrong address ... :-) Fortunately, we were able to help ourselves from the RLC warehouse and equip the stand.

Rimini Lambretta Center OpenDay

The area around the RLC quickly fills up with mostly Italian and English Lambrettisti. It was about 500 visitors on site with about 120 lambrettas and just a handful of Vespas.

Dean has to XNUMXth anniversary of the RLC quite turned up. When you enter the shop, you are first met by one Lambretta world record car Received: The fully disguised Lambretta that died on August 8th, 1951 200 km/h Broke mark over the flying kilometer. Romolo Ferri has the world record drove out on the closed autobahn between Ingolstadt and Munich. The mechanically charged one 125 cc engine should have around 21 hp have had.

A huge mobile pizzeria supplied the visitors with the finest specialties from the region, there was also plenty of vino, aqua, beer and a café.

Spectacular Lambretta test drive

The RLC had closed a circuit for public transport so that the scooters could be tested - once around the industrial park.

DSC01225rimini-lambretta-italrimini-lambretta-ital

DSC01228rimini-lambretta-italrimini-lambretta-ital

In addition to the scooters built by the RLC, it is mainly scooters from the Casa Lambretta collection that can be driven here. The two are in the focus of those present Lambretta Innocenti two-cylinder prototypes. This has Victor Tessera have the RLC processed in the last few months. In the June issue of scootering the reconditioning down to the innards of the engine will be presented. We also tested the original Innocenti two-cylinder prototypes. And here you can only say: it's a shame that it didn't make it into series production.

Lambretta with 305cc and 50PS

305cc and over 50PS - the hardest we have ever ridden: the BSG CasaPerformance 305cc prototypes. CNC engine block with 305cc BSG cylinder, Cyclone5 five-speed gearbox and bgm PRO Superstrong clutch. This monster brings about 50 PS. For the test drives, the Lambretta was castrated to 45 hp via the programmable ignition. At the exit on Sunday we had the opportunity to test it extensively, the video of the exit follows in the second part. Watch this space!

BSG Corse had scooters with impressive performance. Especially the Vespa Smallframes raced across the course at dizzying speeds. They were later joined by the legendary Signor Angelo Zirri and almost the entire Italian Smallframe Tuning scene was on site.

Unfortunately, since even the most beautiful events come to an end, at some point it will be dismantling!
Fortunately, there is still the joint dinner and the nighter with a great view over the mountains!

Nighter in the mountains of Emilia Romagna

 

The common meal and the allnighter took place in an osteria in the mountains. Fantastic location with a view of the lights of Rimini and San Marino in the distance.

Lots of nice conversations, lots of Italian snacks and a few vinos later we fell into bed sometime in the early morning. The rest was only brief and the recovery little, because the next highlight was already a few hours. On the exit we had the opportunity to test the 305cc prototype, especially with regard to the built-in bgm parts.
