January saw the winter Classic Bike Show at Newark. This indoor classic bike show had displays of both classic and custom motorcycles as well as an autojumble and trade stalls, however, the highlight for me was meeting two of the original Team S Equipe members, John & Norman Ronald. Ian Cunningham, now proud owner of Norman’s original scooter, had his beautifully restored Lambretta S Type on show. Mau Spencer, Editor of Classic Scooterist Magazine held a Q&A and we had an opportunity to ask questions. I asked Norman ‘who was the man to beat?’ Norman responded ‘well no one, we were the one’s to beat’. Nuff said.
