  • KURT, are you going to jazz up your page ? you know more about them than we ever will, liked the music bit with wasteland, and the Enemy vid was good the girl in it looked like her in the TING TINGS, ?????
  • Kurt, good you are out and about, THE BOY ABOUT TOWN , THE JAM check it on I tunes, I will send you some things to get for your scooter to make it easier to ride, like although the old type mould on the scooter tyres are cool they are not a patch on the more rounded modern types you get now , ie you wont come of it if you misjudge a corner , we all had a few tumbles, back then. Me and Colin coiley are mates with the guy John who does the Lambretta restorations for Glasgow Lambretta .com, we will keep intouch with anythings that will help safety, seeing as you are still getting to grips with your scoot, then we will give some tips on improved performance, once you know whats what. KEEP THE FAITH BIG CHAP, ANDY
