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… 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.
Anyway, the pics are great, and found over at the LIFE…
