4 Nations Ballcastle 2009 Rideout
Take a look at the photos taken at our events and rideouts in 2011 in the Photos page.
As featured in the Aug/Sept issue of Classic Scooterist, Puncturesafe is a liquid that when inserted into your inner tube (or tubeless tyre) can help prevent the tyre deflating in the event of a puncture.
Philip Steele liked the sound of this and took them up on their discount offer of £23 delivered (normally £28) for a kit that should do 3 or 4 scooter tyres.
To install, first the tyre is deflated and then the tube valve is un-screwed and removed using the supplied tool. When doing the rear tyre don’t forget to support the engine using an engine stand or something suitable.
The bottle is then attached to the tube using the supplied tubing. Using the measure marks on the bottle the correct amount of liquid is then squeezed into the tyre tube.
To finish off, screw the valve back in and inflate. Easy!
To get hold of some Puncturesafe ring 01395 233951 and mention the Classic Scooterist article to take advantage of the discount offer. For more info see the Puncturesafe website (http://www.puncturesafe.com/home1.htm).

The hotel has seven double rooms, four twin rooms, three singles and a family room. They are a mixture of ensuite and basic. Proces are
We have to give the Lambretta Club of Ireland an idea of numbers by the end of January. At the moment we have received expressions of interest from over 20 members. The LCI have not given ticket allocations and have advised that the venue has extra capacity so accommodating the numbers wanting tickets should not be a problem. We need all those members who want a ticket to complete the attached slip and return to Dave with a non-refundable cheque for
It was with great sadness that we learned of the recent passing of John Manns. Many of you will remember John from our 4 Nations in Ballycastle and Eurolambrettas. Our thoughts and prayers are with John’s family and friends and our colleagues in the LCGB who have lost a valued member. A card will be sent to his family and a donation from the club in lieu of flowers will be sent to St. Luke’s Hospice in Devon in his memory.
