For most owners of a Lambretta scooters they become involved with the whole scootering way of life, from sporting trials and to rallies, and restoration to customisation there is always something happening with your Lambretta!
There is nearly always some event happening on most weekends, whether local, national or international, the calender of events is wide and varied. Scooter jumbles, custom show, weekend events are just a few to choose from. The LCGB runs a Best Supporting Member Championship whereby its members who attend the most rallies or events can win trophies or awards for their achievements on riding their scooter.
On the message boards, we have a section dedicated to events, so if you are stuck you could try there, or any of the Scootering press magazines. One event always held annually is the Lambretta Jamboree, this is held by a different national Lambretta club each year, and is a chance to meet fellow like minded enthusiasts.
For restoring, tuning and other tips and tricks you can consult the workshop section of the site to help and guide you in those days in the garage/workshop. Again the level of personalising or customisation under taken by many Lambretta owners can be so wide and varied. Making the Lambretta as fast as possible, customising by chrome accessories with lights and mirrors, or exotic paint work with engraving and chrome work is also a hobby that can evolve with your passion for the Lambretta.
Jetset is the LCGB's own club magazine, sent out to all members. Whist this web site aims to provide you with news views, and articles it does and will not ever replace the clubs magazine. Each year the club sends out 6 issues, with all the top stories of the time.

Jeff tells us "I enclose two photos of my 1960 vintage Li150 S2 following a winter of discontent and nut-and-bolt restoration work. My first scooter, or restoration project for that matter. It's a british bike, one previous owner - my great aunt. I uncovered it in her garden shed, where she'd parked it up one sunny day in 1980. I think you'll agree it's come up real nice."
