Explore a number of scooters from the greatest collection of British Scooters

The British collection includes scooters made by bicycle makers Raleigh, Dayton and Mercury, together with manufacturers set up specifically to make scooters DKR and Phoenix, and of course famous British motorcycle companies who turned their hands to scooters in the late 1950s  including BSA, DMW, Panther, Velocette and Triumph.   The British Douglas motorcycle company made the Italian Vespa under licence, and although Lambrettas were not made in this country Lambretta Concessionaires GB sold vast number of scooters and later when they amalgamated with the Trojan company made the British Lambretta Rallymaster.  Some of this important collection can be viewed in the GALLERY and all of the scooters are detailed in my new book ‘British Motor Scooters 1946-1970′.
