 The sidecar is a Watsonian Bambini. They also made the Bambox, same bottom section but with a locking lid instead of the windscreen and hood.

Cheers Al,
I will keep looking in.

Barry, your mates S1 and chair is stunning.
I restored a S1 with Mk2 bambini a few years ago, and regret parting with it.
I am hoping to fit the one Al has on my TV175 S2, I retored about 15 years ago.



This is it, and my wifes Vespa I restored 5 years ago.

Look, the cream one has a false leg sticking out of its trouser.  You have to be an idiot to post on here and I'm proving it!  ;D

The series I outfit is also very powerful - without lots of revs!  Steve really does know what he is doing with engines.
Another friend is also fitting a chair to his series II 175 at the moment.  Must be catching.
Your TV 175 - a lovely machine.  Will look just perfect with the sidecar on it.
I can't get very interested in Vespas - sorry.  It does look nice though.

Even way back in 1978 we were messing about with sidecars - probably about £50 in those days.

Seem to have hijacked Big Al's thread.
(luckily it is in RumCar Mart)

Can scooters be included in 'Events' - I doubt it.

Just for interest.  Scooter event if you are near Cadwell Park this weekend.

From facebook:-
'Bsso 3rd round this weekend at Cadwell park come have a look and say hello. You'll be surprised how fast and how well these machines go round corners'  (Mike Bonett)

You absolute Cad, well, it is an event for a Lambretta to work for more than 20 miles, so I will let you off. Scratch your eyes out!

Scooter racing made big news with Wotsit Halem doing it prior to working his way up into Superbikes. Strangely its never really made a big mark on most peoples conscience, despite it being an unusual activity. A preserve of the initiated.
I think there should be Invalid Carriage racing. I used to think there should be Larmar Racing at the Nurbergring but I have gone off it now I sold mine. The only race that takes longer than the drive and ferry there. Slipstreaming on the straight at 46MPH would look like a Dotto Train. If you yawn you lose 3MPH.

We live within striking distance of Snetterton circuit.

It seems that at quiet times you can run what you brung - as long as it has an MOT and insurance.

I can imagin a possible Microcar meet-up and a few 'quick' circuits?

I went there a while back and watched some enthusiasts giving it there all from Renault Megans to lotus 7 clones and a few very fast Smart cars etc.

Wonder how they would feel about lapping a Peel P50 10 times in one Peel lap?

Cheers for the nice comments guys,
Barry, Vespa's have feelings too  ;D

If scooter racing isn't your thing, Tenby is holding a national scooter rally this weekend,
I will be loading up and heading off on sat for a weekend of sunshine, 2 stroke and cider  8)

I will try and find my sidecar pics later  ;)

Found some:

My boy with a Serie Speciale limited run of 400 Vespa P200 with a matching Squire sidecar:




And, again me and my boy trying to outdo my mate, we are on a 1959 S1 and MK2 Bambini, but it is harder to lift the wheel due to the tubular frame clamp attatchment, against the flat floor set up on the MK1 Vespa my mate is on:



I miss a third wheel  :-X
