50th Anniversary Lambretta ‘S’ Type

Norman RonaldThe following was taken from AF Rayspeed website.

Calling all ‘S’ Type owners, old and new, past and present, original and replica from 1964 to present day.

We would love you to be part of these celebrations and we are looking for customers who may have pictures and can share memories of owning one of these unique machines. We would like to display these memories and pictures during the 2 day event and we will be looking at the pictures with a view to producing a future AF Rayspeed Calendar. There are two ways to get this to us, you can either email pictures and stories over to us on our usual email address please put in the title ‘S’ Type 50th or send the items in the post for the attention of Karen, if you do this and want any pictures returned please put in a stamped return address envelope. Also on Saturday 16th August we are hoping to get as many ‘S’ Types together at the shop as we can, if you would like to bring your ‘S’ Type along please let us know by email. More details of the event will be released soon on the AF Rayspeed website, keep watching.

2014 is a big year for AF Rayspeed as the iconic Lambretta ‘S’ Type is 50 years old. In conjunction with the Lambretta Club of Great Britain AF Rayspeed are celebrating on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th August. Two of the original Team S Equipe members, John & Norman Ronald will be attending. Norman contacted me recently with the following message:

Dear Team S Equipe members John and myself visited Ray last Tuesday and are please to report that plans are well under way for the S Type Lambretta celebrations, Ray’s main concern at the present time from organisation point of view not knowing how many Lambretta owners will attend the event. It would be much appreciated by Ray if all scooterists who are going to the events would contact Karen to give some idea of numbers. Looking at Ray’s plans it’s going to be a great weekend so please encourage all Lambretta owners to come along. Best regards Norman
