The Hayling Island Scooter Rally 2018 was brilliant! The sun shone, the scooters sparkled and everyone was up for a good time. If Carlsberg did scooter rallies…
I’ve split my posts into two again – you can see the people who attended here, or at least a selection of them. This post concentrates on the scooters; the gorgeous vintage Italian shopping bikes we love with a passion, and I think the ones you see below prove what diverse tastes we all have, which is a good thing, in my opinion. Life would be incredibly boring if we all liked the same things!
Hayling Island Scooter Rally – Friday
We got to Hayling Island quite early so it was nice to chill and watch all the scooters arrive.
A set of crutches makes an unusual accessory for this PX!
I love this custom Vespa which has loads of bespoke parts!
This Armando’s scooter is owned by Mark Turner from Midhurst Detours Scooter Club. The big question is : should it have the traditional driver flyscreen or not? I think it SHOULD! Answers on a postcard please, or in the comments at the bottom…
This belongs to Richard Stewart from the Midhurst Detours.
An unusual place for a petrol tank but Snowy White likes to be different! At least it’s not plumbed in any longer…

Hayling Island Scooter Rally – Saturday
Saturday dawned and the custom show was buzzing. The sun was out and everything shone beautifully!
This is Dean Percival’s Wildcat Lambretta.
For some really cool, bespoke stainless custom parts, Keith Newman is your man! Click below to see what he can make for you, whether it’s something for a full-blown custom scooter or you just want something special to add to a standard bike. From flywheel cowlings, carb grills and horncast badges to number plates and suspensions.
I do love a rusty Lambretta and this one was fab! It’s actually called Crack Whore which the owner didn’t tell me until after he’d taken photos of me sitting on it! These can be seen in my ‘people’ post of the scooterists in attendance.
It’s good to see that Nita’s Tooti Frutti Lambretta is still going strong.
If there was one scooter I could have ridden away then it would have been this stunning TV, owned by Shaun Jeffries from Brighton. It’s been 14 years since he did it up which is amazing as it looks absolutely perfect. It was stage 4 tuned by Stuart Owen when he was at Gran Sport, has a blueprint engine, an Ancilotti piston, 25mm carb and a handmade Ralph Saxby exhaust. It’s a one-off Interceptor and deserved all the attention it got.
I hope you like this post. If you’re the owner of any of these scooters and have more info to add then do leave a comment or contact me via my social media icons and I will do the necessary!
