Piaggio is out today with a new official intro video for the latest Fly. The plastic cousin to the Vespa LX, the Fly captures the style of modern, european scooting. Perhaps that’s why it now looks so much more like it’s rival, the Honda SH150.
For most scooter fans, even if they don’t ride a vintage Vespa or Lambretta, there’s still a romantic attachment to the Mods of the ’60s and ’70s in Great Britain. As much a fashion movement as a vehicle preference, the Mods remain forever etched on the psyche of the scooter community. The site Voices of East Anglia has a great post up featuring vintage photos of Mods out for a scooter gathering in 1979
