Vintage Scooter Pics from LIFE

Check out these great vintage photos on lambrettista.net. Anyone in for a photo shoot at the Curd Rally this year? We’ve already got a vintage fire truck coming to the rally.

I don’t know exactly what’s doing on here… but there are some clues. Firstly the location is  clearly San Fransisco… and specifically the Golden Gate Bridge. I wonder if any of my US readers remember the Berkley Scooter Shop? On the front of one the TV’s there’s a badge for “Al (Second name unreadable)* San Francisco” is also the pic of Warren Carver… who, his badge is “Road Captain” of the Pioneer Scooter Club, SF. Though I reckon he really wanted to be in the California Highway Patrol… Motor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (4) 8efb9f3faeba3a50_largeMotor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (2)87d5af60a7c00277_large299d58ebc547b539_large111333d3f3c6f90c_largef84f5c6407c9b509_largeMotor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (1)  Motor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (3)  Motor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (5)Motor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (6)3aea680563a33803_largeMotor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (8)Motor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (9)Motor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (12)Motor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (13)Motor Scooter Squabble in California, ca. 1960s (20) The event looks like some sort of protest… I’m guessing from the pic of the dude on the Vespa, and the signage, it’s something to do with banning motorcycles from certain roads. There’s a couple of pics of people looking at maps trying to figure out alternative routes.
