This is a 35MB video clip, that may or may not ever resurface- I'm sure the pistonbroke scooter club got nailed pretty hard on bandwidth overages once this showed up. But the screenshot looked pretty funny.

A bunch of retro-futuristic scientists demonstrating a new dance, based on the fun to do for the whole family steering motion on the new racy Lambretta- The Lambretta Twist.


(Lambretta 175 now with Frenos Disco!) What year did disc brakes show up, Derrick?

Ya! That is pretty cool.

I like it because it features my bike!

The front disc came on the very first TV 175 series 3's in 1962. The one in the add is a 1962 TV 175 series 3 in coral red. Same as mine. Looks orange. But Italian red is very orangy.

I was thinking of get a copy of it on disc. The 8 pages sales flyer also featured the same scoot.

You can see it here:

I love that tune. I have an MP3 of it that I was of course planning on playing at the rally!

I've watched this thing about 50 times today.

It has become a life changing event for me.

Gawd...is that depressing...
