I have created a series of free restored scooter wallpapers to liven up your phone or tablet, and you can use them on your lock or home screens. This page is dedicated to tidy restorations of Lambrettas and Vespas which I’ve photographed over the years.
If you prefer other scooter styles, then here are links to the other pages :
I will add new photos each month to every page so do check back or join my mailing list for updates!
I like to use wallpapers on my iPhone’s lock screen, and the images below include versions with the 2019 national rally calendar and a calendar for the current month. This means that if I press the home button then I can see this useful info at a glance, to check the rally dates or this month’s calendar.
If you’re not sure how to set your phone’s wallpaper then I’ve produced a YouTube video which you can see here, for how to set it on an iPhone or iPad.
I find that you’ll need to re-position and/or resize the wallpapers when you’re setting them on your device. I explain this in the video – but on an iPhone you can play around with it by ‘pinching’ the image in Settings before you click the ‘Set’ button.
Please note : these wallpapers are for personal use only, are copyright of DiaryOfADetour.com and cannot be used for commercial purposes including other websites, adverts and flyers.
Free Restored Scooter Wallpapers
Press and hold the image you want to use, and your device will hopefully show a ‘Save Image’ or similar prompt. Click that to save the image on your device and then configure the settings to use it as your wallpaper.
This month’s restored scooter wallpapers feature a beautiful example of one of the earliest Lambrettas, a Model D which was introduced in the early 1950s. I think the 150cc example below is a Mark 2, from the mid-fifties. I took these photos at the Solent Cougars rally in 2018, and you can see more photos here.
Do bookmark this page if you want to keep an eye on more restored scooter wallpapers which I will add each month. There are pages for different types of scooters too, including :
2019 Rally dates and tips
I have a comprehensive 2019 Rally List here, which includes plenty of tips for accommodation and details of what’s on at each event. I also have listings for alldayers, northern soul nights, bands and scooter club dos which you can see via this link. Please do contact me if you have anything you’d like to add.
I also have an in-depth guide to the Isle of Wight scooter rally which I will be updating all year as the August bank holiday approaches.
