Stolen Scooters - Please Keep an Eye Open!
We've just received the horrible news that a lad has had all four of his scooters stolen from his garage in Hampshire, last night, the 11 January.The garage is in Hartley Wintney, Hants (between Basingstoke and Camberley) and the scooters stolen (pictured) are as follows:
Lambretta LiS S3, 1966: Gold, Pathfinder spots and a Mugello 225 (only just re-lined and new piston!).
Vespa GS 1964: White, North American non-Battery model (no ignition in headset is an easy spot).
Vespa GS 1964: Black, with a PX200 engine.
Vespa Sprint 1967: Pastel green, witha PX166 Malossi, registered as a Sprint, trapezoid headlight, it has no toolbox space in panel (as per the SS180, and Motovespas).

Hate to hear this, parasitic scum of the earth, name and shame when caught. I feel for you mate.
I don't know the guy personally Gordon but I do know how it feels to have your Scooter stolen. I really feel for him too.
Assholes, scum of the earth!!
omg its a horrible thing to here that someones had a scooter stolen or anything stolen for that matter. what a lovely bunch of scooters feel so gutted for the owner. as for the scum who stole them hope they get what they deserve maybe lose a few fingers that will do nicely stealing little c*nt/c*nts
Sad to see someone having his precious scooters stolen. They look really great too so even more of a blow to the owner I would imagine. I was involved in an accident recently on my Sprint Veloce and the idea that it may have to be scrapped did not appeal at all, even if I was going to get my money back. We all become pretty attached to these wee gorgeous looking death traps so my heart goes out to the owner. Here's hoping they are found soon and are in the same condition as they left.
Aren't they gorgeous. Hope you didn't get to too much road rash Chris. Hard to see your wheels scraped/crushed. I've still got the gearlever off my wee 90 Sport - all that I managed to salvage. I just hope that Darren gets back these little darlin's.
Yeah, here's hoping Jan, its a real shame when such a liberty happens. I was quite fortunate in that I escaped with just a few cuts and some bruising, and the scooter is back to its best now as well, but thanks for asking. My first scooter ( a Vespa 90) ended up in Alex's hands and from there it all went downhill. I never even got the gear lever off it sadly.
The sickening aspect of this is it was most likely someone who knows the owner that was involved. A random crime? i dont think so.....:-(
Totally JP it's doubtful this was opportunists.
when i lived in basingstoke garage roberies were common when our club garage got robbed the police told us kids break in to any they can get into and then tell adults if theres anything worth stealing who go back with a van so probably not a friend just a certain well known chav or his mates working a couple of miles down the road
Hi Jan, some nice machinery taken there, hopefully they will be spotted and returned. What goes around comes around eh!
Hi Gordon, Yes I hope so too. They are beautiful.
